What We Believe Top.jpg

God

We believe ...

• In one eternal God who exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

• God is holy and is the Creator and Sustainer of all things.

 

Jesus

We believe ...

• That Jesus is fully God and entered human form by the conception of the Holy Spirit    and miraculously born of the virgin Mary.

• Jesus lived a sinless life, died for ours sins, rose again, and sits now at the right    

   hand of God as our advocate.

• That Jesus will personally return and that his return is not far off.

 

Holy Spirit

We believe ...

• That the Holy Spirit is God. We believe the Holy Spirit was sent by the Father in

  Jesus’ name to teach and remind us of Christ’s words and to convict us of sin.

• The Holy Spirit brings about the new birth and at the point of salvation, comes to live

  inside the believer and seals our salvation permanently.

• The Holy Spirit provides the power to overcome temptation, defeat sin, and produce

   righteousness in the believer's life.

• The Holy Spirit also provides unique gifts for each believer to use to help the church

   fulfill its mission and purpose.

 

Bible

We believe ...

• That the Bible is God’s inspired Word and that it is inerrant in its original

   manuscripts.

• God has preserved His Word and that the Bible is the sole authority for our faith

   and life.

 

Salvation

We believe ...

• That salvation is by grace through faith in Christ. Jesus death on the cross is the

   only payment for our sins that God will accept.

• That all people who believe in Christ are justified by Christ’s blood and enter into a

   personal relationship with God without the need of any other mediator.

• That God adopts into His Family all those who repent of their sin and accept by faith

   the Lord Jesus.

 

Church

We believe ...

• That the church’s primary purpose is to glorify Christ.

• The church is made up of all who believe in the Lord Jesus.

• That Scripture commands believers to gather in community to devote themselves to

   worship, fellowship, ministry, outreach, prayer, the teaching of His Word, and to

   observe the ordinances of baptism and communion.

• That God has gifted each member of the church to fulfill the purposes of the church.

• That every local church is free to govern its own affairs.

• That each church should provide a biblical leadership structure that will provide

   direction to the church as it fulfills its purpose as well as accountability, discipline,

   preservation of unity, and care for the body.

 

People

We believe ...

• That all people are created in the image of God.

• That because of Adam’s sin, all people are sinful by nature and choice. We believe

   people, unless they have experienced forgiveness in Christ, are lost and alienated

   from God.

 

Eternity

We believe ...

• In the resurrection of the body and that believers will enjoy eternal life.

• Those who do not trust in Christ will consciously endure eternal punishment.
