What we believe and teach is:

  • The Bible is God’s inspired Word and is the divinely authoritative standard by which Christians live. 2 Timothy 3:16-17
  • God is the Sovereign Creator of the universe and cares personally for man as his Heavenly Father. Isaiah 40:28; Jeremiah 1:5
  • Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of the living God who died for our sins, rose from the grave, ascended into heaven, and will someday return in judgment. John 3:16; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
  • The Holy Spirit dwells within each Christian as a comforter, counselor, and encourager, and gives gifts for abundant living and assurance for eternal life. Acts 2:38; Galatians 5:22-23; 1 Corinthians 12:11
  • There is one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. John 10:30; Genesis 1:26; Isaiah 45:5
  • Man, because of his personal sin, needs to be made whole and restored to fellowship with God through Jesus Christ. Romans 3:23-24; Romans 6:23
  • Anyone can be saved by trusting in Jesus as Savior and Lord and validating that faith through personal repentance, public profession, and water baptism by immersion. Ephesians 2:8; Acts 2:38
  • The Church is the body of Christ composed of all born again believers around the world. It is identified locally by ministering congregations, such as Sunnyside. Acts 2:47; John 12:32; Ephesians 4:11-16; Matthew 28:18-20
