Our Beliefs

God

We believe God is the only fitting object of our worship. There is one God, who exists in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He is perfectly and infinitely loving, just, and holy.

Isaiah 37:16; Jeremiah 23:23-24I John 4:7-82 Corinthians 13:13

Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ is God the Son, is the second person of the Trinity, and is fully God and fully man. Having always existed, He took on human flesh and was born of the Virgin Mary. He lived a perfect, sinless life on earth. His death on the cross paid the penalty for our sins and is the only basis for the salvation of the human race. He rose bodily from the grave and is now reigning in power with the Father. He offers us eternal life, forgiveness of sins, and peace through faith in Him. He is the only way to God. We await his visible and glorious return to the earth to claim His own and to judge the living and the dead.

John 14:6; Luke 1:35; 2 Corinthians 5:211 Peter 1:3-5

Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is God and is the third person of the Trinity. He dwells in the believer, glorifies Christ, and empowers us for service.

John 14:26; Romans 8:91 Corinthians 12:12-14Ephesians 1:13-14

The Bible

We believe the Bible is the Word of God. Every word is inspired by God and is without error in the original writings.

2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21Romans 15:4John 1:1

Man

We believe that man is created in God's image, but because of sin has become unable to please God, and is condemned to suffer eternal separation from God apart from accepting God's gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ.
Genesis 1:26-27; Romans 5:12; Romans 6:23Ephesians 2:12

Salvation

We believe Jesus Christ died on the cross, was buried, and rose again from the dead, thus conquering death and offering salvation freely to all who, by faith, trust in Him. Salvation provides the believer with eternal life in God's presence.
John 3:16-18; Acts 4:12; Romans 3:22-24; Romans 10:9-10; Ephesians 2:8-10

The Church

We believe that the church is composed of all those with personal faith in Christ as Savior and is expressed universally through all believers and locally by local fellowships in worship, service, the spread of the Gospel and fellowship of believers.
Acts 1:8; Romans 12:1-2; 1 Corinthians 12:12-27Hebrews 10:24-25

Ordinances

We believe that Communion (the Lord's Supper) and Believer's Baptism by immersion should be celebrated. Communion will be open to all believers, regardless of church membership.
Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 8:26-40; Matthew 26:26-281 Corinthians 11:23-26
