Our Purpose

Maranatha is a conservative, evangelical conference center and resident community where guests and residents Vacation with Purpose.  We seek to provide programs that clearly present the Bible as God’s Word, offer people the opportunity to receive Christ, encourage spiritual growth and challenge them to live consistent, Godly lives of service wherever He places them.

We Believe 

  • We believe the Bible to be the inspired, inerrant, authoritative Word of God.
  • We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of His Father and the promise of His personal and imminent return in power and glory.
  • We believe that all have sinned and are therefore separated from God.
  • We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures and that all who believe in Him are justified by His death and resurrection.
  • We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life in unity with believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
  • We believe in the physical resurrection of the dead for final judgment; the lost will be sent to everlasting conscious punishment and the redeemed will live forever with Christ in the joys of the renewed creation.
