Our Beliefs

The APO team is united in the following beliefs:

  • There is only one God.  He is eternal, sovereign, omnipotent.
  • God is trinitarian in nature – He is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, yet one God.
  • The Bible is the only inspired Word of God.
  • Jesus Christ is the only Son of God.  He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died a sacrificial death, was raised from the dead, and will one day come again to reign and judge the world.
  • Salvation is by grace through an individual’s personal faith in Jesus Christ and His atoning work for our sins.  Good works are a result of salvation, but salvation is not a result of good works. 
  • Baptism is an act of obedience, but is not essential for salvation.  Salvation comes by faith alone.
