What we believe.

We believe that God in His infinite wisdom, grace and mercy sent His only Son, Jesus Christ, to this earth to live and die as a holy and living sacrifice for our sins, so that we might know the Father through Him and have eternal life.  It is because God chose us that we now live for Him.

On:  God

We believe there is only one true, living, sovereign, and infinite God, creator of all things, one in essence and eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and that these three persons are of equal dignity and power each deserving worship and obedience.

On:  Jesus Christ

We believe in the deity and eternal existence of Jesus Christ, true God and true man; His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit; His virgin birth; His sinless life; His substitutionary death on a cross; His bodily resurrection; His ascension to the right hand of the Father; and His personal, imminent return.

On:  Holy Spirit

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit sent by God to comfort, convict, guide, and sanctify believers. The Holy Spirit regenerates and indwells all believers at conversion, forever, thus enabling and empowering the life and ministry of the believer.

 On:  The Word of God

We believe that the sixty-six books of the Bible are the verbally inspired Word of God, without any mistakes, and completely accurate as originally written. God’s Word is both true and everlasting, is the complete revelation of God’s will for salvation, and is our supreme authority for faith and conduct.

On:  Man

We believe that man was the direct and instantaneous creation by and for God in His image; that by man’s disobeying God, every man by nature and by practice incurred physical and spiritual death, which is eternal separation from God and punishment
as a consequence.

On:  Salvation

We believe salvation is a gift from God to man. Man can never make up for his or her sin by self-improvement or good works. God’s grace is demonstrated in the gift of His Son Jesus Christ who died on our behalf. All who repent and put their trust in Christ are declared right with God due to His sacrificial death on the cross as a substitutionary atonement. At the point of salvation each believer is a new creation eternally secure and will give some evidence of personal conversion through the actions of their life.

On:  The Church 

We believe the universal church is composed of all Christians who have repented of their sins and placed their trust in Jesus Christ. Christ serves as the head of this united spiritual organism called the church. The formation of the church, the body of Christ, began on the Day of Pentecost and will be completed at the coming of Christ for His church at the rapture. The local church is made up of believers who have joined together for worship, instruction, fellowship, service and observing the ordinances of baptism and communion.
