WE BELIEVE Jesus died for the sins of the world, was buried, and was raised on the third day. In His sinless perfect life Jesus met the demands of the law and in His atoning death on the cross , He took God’s judgment for sin. The power of sin has been broken along with the disarming of the demonic powers. Jesus is the King of kings and the Lord of lords.
WE BELIEVE if you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
WE BELIEVE we are called to love and care for those who seek refuge from a war torn country.
WE BELIEVE that we are all seeking refuge from the things that wage war in our soul. 1 Peter 2:11 Dear friends, I urge you, as foreigners and exiles, to abstain from sinful desires, which wage war against your soul.
WE BELIEVE Jesus even sought refuge.
Matthew 8:20 Jesus said, “Foxes have dens and birds have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head.”
WE BELIEVE we are looking for a promised land.
Hebrews 11:8 By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going. 9 By faith he made his home in the promised land like a stranger in a foreign country; he lived in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise. 10 For he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God.
WE BELIEVE that God has a heavenly place for us.
Hebrews 11:13 All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance, admitting that they were foreigners and strangers on earth. 14People who say such things show that they are looking for a country of their own. 15 If they had been thinking of the country they had left, they would have had opportunity to return. 16 Instead, they were longing for a better country—a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them.
WE BELIEVE we should love one another as brothers and sisters.
Hebrews 13 Keep on loving one another as brothers and sisters. 2 Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.
