We are a Bible-believing and teaching church where the Word of God lives and is applied to our lives in practical, down-to-earth ways. We are associated with Converge PacWest (formerly the Baptist General Conference). It’s our goal and vision to extend the hope of Jesus Christ to San Jose and beyond through loving, caring, and serving.
We believe the Bible is the Word of God, fully inspired by God and without error in the original manuscripts, written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and possessed of supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct (1 Peter 1:25; 2 Peter 1:21; Hebrews 1:1-3; 2 Timothy 3:16).
We believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons, that these are equal in every divine perfection, and that they execute distinct but harmonious offices in the work of creation, providence and redemption. We affirm an orthodox, Trinitarian view of God (John 14:17, 23; Deuteronomy 6:4).
We believe that all people are sinners by nature and by choice and are, therefore, under condemnation. We believe that those who repent of their sins and trust in Jesus Christ are saved. (John 3:3; Galatians 2:20; Ephesians 4:17-24).
We believe in the universal church, a living spiritual body of which Christ is the head and all regenerated persons are members. We believe in the local church, consisting of a company of believers in Jesus Christ, baptized in a credible profession of faith, and associated for worship, work and fellowship. We believe that God has laid upon the members of the local church the primary task of giving the Gospel of Jesus Christ to a lost world (Matthew 16:15-19, 28:15-20).
We believe that a Christian should live for the glory of God and the well-being of his fellowmen, that his conduct should be blameless before the world, that he should be a faithful steward of his possessions, and that he should seek to realize for himself and others the full stature of maturity in Christ (Ephesians 6:10-24; John 14:21; 1 Corinthians 8:7).
We believe that each person is ultimately accountable to God in matters of faith and conduct. We believe each church is independent and must be free from interference by any ecclesiastical or political authority; that therefore Church and State must be kept separate as having different functions, each fulfilling its duties free from dictation or patronage of the other (Colossians 1:18; Revelation 1:12-13, 20; Matthew 22:21).
The Last Things
We believe in the personal and visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ to earth and the establishment of His kingdom. We believe in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment, the eternal reward of the righteous, and the endless suffering of the wicked (Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:14-18; Matthew 25:41).
