The Gospel of Jesus Christ

"The Good News"

"You carefully study the Scriptures because you think they give you eternal life. 

They do in fact tell about me, but you refuse to come to me to have that life."

John 5: 39-40 NCV


We are

Ordinary People


We are ordinary people who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. We gather together to  praise and give thanks to God our Father. To all glory, honor and praise. We believe that all people are ordinary and yet unique in their own way. The church is made up of people who believes that God gave us his only son, Jesus. God is reaching out to the world and is calling those who will believe in His Son.

We have a mission


A goal and a charge given to every one of us. Our mission is to Love God, Love His Church, Love His World. Our goal is to be Christ-Like, which is to look, live and love like Jesus. We pray that our community will see Christ in us and not ourselves. The charge that the Sr. Pastor is giving to the church is to share Jesus with people beginning in Maui County and to the rest of the world. God's desire is that all men, women and children might be saved; Those who accept and believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross for the forgiveness of their sins and being resurrected to assure us of eternal life and a right relationship with Almighty God. The church exists for two reasons. The first reason is to have a loving relationship with God through Jesus Christ. The second reason is to give everyone else in the world the same opportunity. God doesn't just reach out to us for our sake, but only that He alone gets all the Glory.




Our Beliefs


We fully believe and uphold the convictions written in The Baptist Faith and Message from The Southern Baptist Convention. Below is a partial summary. The full text can be found under the Baptist Faith & Message tab or on the Southern Baptist Convention website.


Section Title

The Scriptures

The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is God's revelation of Himself to man. It is a perfect treasure of divine instruction. It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter. Therefore, all Scripture is totally true and trustworthy. It reveals the principles by which God judges us, and therefore is, and will remain to the end of the world the true center of Christian union, and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and religious opinions should be tried. All Scripture is a testimony to Christ, who is Himself the focus of divine revelation.

God

There is one and only one living and true God. …The eternal triune God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being.

God the Father

God as Father reigns with providential care over His universe, His creatures, and the flow of the stream of human history according to the purposes of His grace. …God is Father in truth to those who become children of God through faith in Jesus Christ.

God the Son

Christ is the eternal Son of God. In His incarnation as Jesus Christ, He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. …He honored the divine law by His personal obedience, and in His substitutionary death on the cross, He made provision for the redemption of men from sin.

God the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God, fully divine. …He exalts Christ. He convicts men of sin, of righteousness and of judgment. …He enlightens and empowers the believer and the church in worship, evangelism, and service.

Man

Man is the special creation of God, in His own image. He created them male and female as the crowning work of His creation. …By his free choice man sinned against God and brought sin into the human race. … The sacredness of human personality is evident in that God created man in His own image, and in that Christ died for man; therefore every person of every race possesses dignity and is worthy of respect and Christian love.

Salvation

Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer. In its broadest sense salvation includes regeneration, justification, sanctification, and glorification.

God's Purpose of Grace

Election is the gracious purpose of God, according to which He regenerates, justifies, sanctifies, and glorifies sinners. …All true believers endure to the end. Those whom God has accepted in Christ, and sanctified by His Spirit will never fall away from the state of grace, but shall persevere to the end.

The Church

A New Testament church of the Lord Jesus Christ is an autonomous local congregation of baptized believers, associated by covenant in the faith and fellowship of the gospel, observing the two ordinances of Christ, governed by His laws, exercising the gifts, rights, and privileges invested in them by His Word, and seeking to extend the gospel to the ends of the earth. Each congregation operates under the Lordship of Christ through democratic processes. In such a congregation each member is responsible and accountable to Christ as Lord. Its scriptural officers are pastors and deacons. While both men and women are gifted for service in the church, the office of pastor is limited to men as qualified by Scripture.
