About God
God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three personalities: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God. Genesis 1:1, 26, 27; 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; I Peter 1:2

About Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to heaven’s glory and will return again to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.Matthew 1:22-23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5; 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:1-15; I Corinthians 15:34; Romans 1:3-4; Acts 1:9-11; I Timothy 6:14-15; Titus 2:13

About the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. The Christian seeks to live under His control daily. II Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13; 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; I Corinthians 2:12; 3:1

About Man
Man is made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. He is the supreme object of God’s creation. Although man has tremendous potential for good, he is marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called “sin.” This attitude separates man from God. Genesis 1; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a; 59:1-2; Romans 3:23

About the Bible
The Bible is God’s Word to all men. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without any mixture of error. II Timothy 3:16; 1:13; II Peter 1:20-21; Psalm 119:105, 160; 12:6

About Salvation
Salvation is a gift from God to man. Man can never make up for his sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can man be saved from sin’s penalty. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith. Romans 5:1; 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; John14:6; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26

About Eternal Security
Because God gives man eternal life through Jesus Christ, the believer is secure in that salvation for eternity. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian. It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives this security. John 10:29; II Timothy 1:12; Hebrews 7:25; 10:10-14; I Peter 1:3-5

About Eternity
Man was created to exist forever. He will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and hell are places of eternal existence. John 3:16; I John 2:25; 5:11-13; Romans 6; Revelation 20:15

We all live for something or someone. Perhaps it is experiencing the great outdoors that makes us feel alive. Or maybe we feel most alive through our relationships, careers, family, hobbies and activities. For some it might be the constant pursuit of pleasure and possessions that brings the feeling of happiness and purpose. The truth is that no matter how great an experience is, in and of itself it doesn’t have the capacity to sustain that feeling of being alive for very long.

The story of Jesus is not how He makes bad people good, but that He makes DEAD people ALIVE! True life begins and is in Jesus. There is nothing you can do to earn God’s love. He freely gives it to you and He demonstrates His love for you by sending His Son Jesus to die on the cross for you. He also promises to give Himself to you, by filling you with His very presence – The Holy Spirit.

SALVATION

If you are asking, “What must I do to be saved?” The answer is simple, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved.” (Acts 16:30) So how do you do that? Simply quiet your mind and heart for a moment and pray this prayer.  After that we encourage you to get a Bible and join us every Sunday to grow in your faith.

Dear God,
I’m praying this prayer because I know I need you to be the Lord of my life. I confess that I have ran away from You for too long. Please forgive me of all my sins and the things I have done against You and others in the past. I believe that Jesus Christ died in my place so I can live in Your presence forever.

Holy Spirit teach me and guide me each day. Jesus be the Lord of my life and keep me focused on following you. I believe in my heart and confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord and now He is Lord over my life.

Thank you for saving me. Thank you that I am now a Christian. Amen

WE BELIEVE BAPTISM IS THE OUTWARD EXPRESSION OF AN INWARD DECISION TO FOLLOW JESUS

 Baptism is a symbolic act of professing your faith in front of others. While it is a public act, it must be based on a personal decision to follow Jesus and to put your trust in Him and Him alone. At LIFEGATE, we practice full-immersion  baptism, which symbolizes the process of death and resurrection that Jesus went through for each of us. Please let us know if you are interested in learning more about baptism. By filling out the form below you are simply letting us know that you would like more information on baptism.
