Meet Jesus

If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.

Romans 10:9-10
At Faith Bible, we believe that God made people to enjoy an intimate, personal relationship with Him. Everyone, whether they know it or not, is incomplete until they find peace in a right relationship with their Creator. If you feel that your life is missing something, God is that something! Because of our sin, our relationship with God is broken, and we are not able to make it right again. Jesus, the Son of God, paid the price for our sins on the cross, and then rose from the dead, making a way for us to enjoy eternal fellowship with God, beginning on Earth and continuing in Heaven. We believe and experience that there is nothing sweeter than a life of following Jesus. But because the new life we have discovered is all about relationships, with God and people, it's hard to get a taste of it over the internet.

If you have more questions about God, we would encourage you to contact one of our pastors, who would be happy to meet with you.

What We Believe

Jesus said to him, “Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

John 20:29
  • We believe that the Bible is God's Word, and that it is complete, accurate, and authoritative.

  • We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, who has always existed as God but who came to earth as a man, born of a virgin.

  • We believe that being fully God and fully human, Jesus was the only one whose death could pay for the sins of all humanity.  When he died on the cross, Christ provided redemption from our sinful state and reconciliation with God the Father for all who will place their faith in him.

  • We believe that, just as he predicted, Jesus was raised back to life on the third day after his crucifixion, defeating death and offering eternal life to all who believe.  We believe that, following this, he ascended into heaven, where he sits at the right hand of the Father and acts as our mediator and high priest.

  • We believe that Jesus will return to judge the earth and take his followers home.

  • We believe that those who place their faith in Christ are filled with God's Holy Spirit, who enables us to live a life of communion with God and victory over sin.  The Holy Spirit guides us, teaches us, gifts us, corrects us, and empowers us to live the lives God intends us to live.

Staff

Not many of you should become teachers, my fellow believers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly.
