At Worship Center, we use a variety of methods to communicate. But to us, the message we communicate is unchanging. These truths - what we believe - are so important to us that we endeavor to reflect them in all that we say and do.
There is one true, holy God, eternally existing in three equal persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He has demonstrated his power, wisdom, and goodness by creating the world and everything in it.
The Bible is the inspired Word of God, revealing the will of God. These writings are without error and the final authority on all matters of faith and how it is lived out. The Bible is the sole basis of our beliefs.
Man was created good and upright in the image of God. Because man sinned he was separated from God. His only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Every person is God’s masterpiece, uniquely created with a purpose that can be most fully realized through a personal relationship with Jesus.
Jesus Christ came to the earth, was born of a virgin, fully God and fully man, and lived a life without sin. He voluntarily gave his life on the cross as the ultimate sacrifice for our sins, bringing God’s plan of salvation to all who trust in him alone. After his physical death, Jesus rose from the dead and ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He promises to personally return to earth to fulfill the eternal plan of God.
All of scripture points to God’s plan of salvation. Salvation is a free gift from God available to everyone. Through Christ’s death and resurrection, God provided salvation for the spirit, healing for the soul and body, and forgiveness of sins. This gift of salvation is accepted by faith, not on the basis of any good works we can do.
The Holy Spirit is present in the world, convicting every person of their need for Jesus. Believers receive the gift of the Holy Spirit at the time of salvation, helping them live a life of Christ-like character. The baptism of the Holy Spirit empowers believers to be a witness to those around them and brings a deeper realization of their spiritual gifts and the boldness to pursue them. The spiritual gifts that were evident in the early Church are available for us today to encourage and build the Body of Christ.
God created man to exist forever. Man will either spend his eternal existence with God through forgiveness and salvation or separated from God because of sin. Eternal union with God is heaven. Eternal separation from God is hell.
We believe the church is vital to bringing hope and healing to the world. The local expression of the Church is wherever believers gather for worship, prayer, fellowship, and the teaching of God’s Word; observe baptism and communion as established by Jesus Christ, and serve others with their God-given talents and gifts. The church is a group of diverse people, each one with a story, called to work together in love and unity to make disciples for the ultimate purpose of glorifying God.
