NUESTRAS CREENCIAS

[icon name="book"] What we believe about the Bible:

We believe that the Bible is the absolute truth and who has all the authority of God. We also believe that both the Old and New Testaments are the unequivocal, verbally inspired and infallible Word of God.


IF-InsideWhat we practice through the authority of the Bible:

We accept the Bible as our life manual. When we face a decision, our first question is: "What does the Bible say?" We practice reading the Bible, studying the Bible, and memorizing the Bible. The Bible is the basis of everything we believe.


What we believe about God and the Trinity:

We believe that there is a true and living God who reveals himself to us as the God who eternally exists in three persons: God, the Father; God, the Son; and God, the Holy Spirit; and that these three are as one God. We believe that God, the Father, ordains all things according to His purpose and for His own glory. We believe that God, the Son, is Jesus Christ, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and was born free from the sin of the Virgin Mary to redeem man from sin. We believe that God, the Holy Spirit, is sent by God to condemn sin, to exhort to do good, to be a moral guide, teacher and source of strength for the believer. We believe that all who receive Christ as Savior are born of the Holy Spirit.


What we believe about the salvation of man through Jesus:

We believe that salvation is only given through Jesus Christ and that He extended to us the atonement and the forgiveness of sins through the cross. We believe that man was created in the image of God, that man sinned (he disobeyed God) and due to the fall, caused both his physical death and his spiritual death (eternal separation from God). We believe that all human beings are born with a sinful nature. We also believe that all who invoke the name of the Lord as Savior will be saved and will pass into eternity with God.


baptismWhat we practice through the ordinance of baptism:

We practice baptism by immersion under water, the way Jesus was baptized and the way the Bible commands. Being an ordinance of the church, this is a prerequisite to receiving the privileges of church membership and the Lord's Supper.


What we practice through the believer's priesthood:

The Bible tells us that every believer is a servant. We encourage all members to find a place to serve and minister. Each believer has direct access to God through prayer and reading the Bible.


What we practice through life guided by the Spirit:

We believe that the only possible way to live the Christian life is through the power of God that resides in us. We seek to practice a daily dependence on the Spirit of God, who guides us and allows us to follow His Word.


Lo que practicamos a través de la ordenanza de la Cena del Señor

OurBeliefs_LordsSupperNosotros celebramos la Cena del Señor como un acto simbólico de obediencia. Los miembros de la iglesia que han sido bautizados rememoran, tanto la muerte de Jesús y que prevén Su segunda venida, a través de compartir juntos la Santa Cena.


Lo que creemos sobre la Iglesia y el creyente:

Creemos que una iglesia del Nuevo Testamento es una asociación de creyentes bautizados. Estamos unidos a través de la adoración, de los grupos pequeños y del servicio. Como el cuerpo de Cristo, la iglesia, tenemos diversidad en nuestros dones y la unidad en nuestras creencias. Creemos que cada creyente está llamado a una vida santa de servicio y debe pertenecer a una iglesia local que crea en la Biblia y así tener comunión y fomentar el Evangelio en todas las personas del país y de todo el mundo.


Lo que practicamos a través de la autonomía de la Iglesia local:

Cristo no es una persona, grupo u organización religiosa: es reconocido como la cabeza de la iglesia. Nosotros practicamos la autonomía e independencia de cualquier control denominacional y formamos equipo con una red de iglesias afines para crear un mayor impacto. Cada congregación determina su propia estrategia, estructura y estilo.


Lo que ejercemos a través de las ofrendas:

Practicamos el diezmo como un acto de adoración a nuestro Señor y Salvador. Reconocemos que el diezmo del 10% de nuestros ingresos es el punto de partida, y ofrendar por encima de esa cantidad es nuestro privilegio.


Lo que ponemos en práctica al compartir el Evangelio:

Nosotros practicamos el compartir a Cristo personalmente como lo ejemplifica la vida de Cristo al verbalizar el Evangelio. Es responsabilidad de cada cristiano compartir la Buena Nueva del Evangelio con los que Dios trae a través de nuestro camino. Por supuesto, también nos gusta invitar amigos a la iglesia.


Nuestra Red:

Aunque somos como una congregación autónoma, entendemos el poder de conectar y cooperar con otras iglesias y organizaciones centradas en el Evangelio. Con ese fin, somos parte de una red a nivel nacional de más de 40,000 iglesias llamada la Convención Bautista del Sur (Southern Baptist Convention).

We have partnered to do incredible things. For example, our network sponsors more than 5,000 missionaries who are sharing the love and message of Jesus worldwide. We work together to plant new churches in major cities in the US, operate the second largest disaster relief organization in North America, and have created seminars to train new generations of church leaders around the world. We are very excited about the power of this network to exponentially increase the impact of our church.
