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.
We believe Jesus is fully God and entered human form by the conception of the Holy Spirit and was miraculously born of the Virgin Mary. Jesus lived a sinless life, died for our sins, rose again, and now sits at the right hand of God as our advocate. Jesus will personally return and his return is not far off.
We believe 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 us to help the church fulfill its mission and purpose.
We believe the Bible is God’s inspired Word and that it is inerrant in its original manuscripts. God has preserved His Word and the Bible is the sole authority for our faith and life.
We believe salvation is by grace through faith in Christ. Jesus’ death on the cross is the only payment for our sins that God will accept. 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. God adopts into His Family all those who repent of their sin and accept by faith the Lord Jesus.
We believe All people are created in the image of God. Because of Adam’s sin, all people are sinful by nature and choice. People, unless they have experienced forgiveness in Christ, are lost and alienated from God.
We believe the church’s primary purpose is to glorify Christ. The church is made up of all who believe in the Lord Jesus. Scripture commands believers to gather in the community to devote themselves to worship, fellowship, ministry, outreach, prayer, the teaching of His Word, and to observe the ordinances of baptism and communion. God has gifted each member of the church to fulfill the purpose of the church. Every local church is free to govern its own affairs. 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 of the body.
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.
We believe that communion is a physical reminder that Jesus died for our sins and will return again. We believe communion should only be taken by those who are “in communion” with Christ (or said differently, have trusted in Christ and are living in obedience to Him). We practice open communion -- this means we invite all believers to participate in communion with us and not just those who are a part of our church.
We believe that prayer is essential to the growth of every believer. We believe that God hears and answers prayer today and to glorify himself, performs miracles and heals.
Once you’ve trusted Jesus Christ as your Savior, your next step is to be baptized to demonstrate your obedience. When you get baptized, you honor God the Father who sent His Son, you honor Jesus who died for you, and you honor the Holy Spirit who guarantees your salvation.
