About The Bible
We believe the Bible is the divinely inspired Word of God; that it contains no errors in the original manuscripts, and is preserved by God for us. We believe the Bible is authoritative for this church and is our guide for every decision.
We believe in one God who exists eternally in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe God created the universe by His power and Word; and is all knowing, all powerful and ever present.
About Jesus Christ
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who became flesh and came to the world to reveal God to us and to become the Savior of the lost world. Jesus was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, was crucified for our sins, and was bodily raised from the dead. He is coming again visibly and bodily to reign as Lord of the universe.
We believe that all people were created in the image of God to have fellowship with him but became alienated in that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, people are incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through their own efforts.
We believe that the blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin. Therefore, God freely offers salvation to those who repent of sin and place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as payment for their sin. We believe the true believer is eternally secure and cannot lose their salvation.
About the Holy Spirit
We believe the Holy Spirit is the third person of the trinity who indwells all believers, baptizes and seals them at the moment of salvation. He will indwell believers in response to their confession of sin, obedience and surrender to Christ.
About the Christian Life
We believe all Christians should live for Christ and not for themselves. By obedience to the Word of God and daily yielding to the Spirit of God, every believer should mature and be conformed to the image of Christ.
About the Church
We believe a New Testament church is a local body of baptized believers who surrender to the authority and headship of Jesus Christ. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by loving him and by making him known to the lost world. The church has two ordinances: baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Baptism is symbolic of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus, and follows salvation. The Lord’s Supper is a reminder of the sacrifice of Christ on the cross and of his promised return.
