WHAT WE BELIEVE

 

God

We believe that there is one God who exists in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Jesus

We believe that Jesus is the Son of Man, was born of a virgin, was wholly God and wholly man, lived a sinless life, died in our place as a sacrifice for the sins of mankind, was buried, arose bodily from the grave, and ascended into Heaven.

Christ’s Return

We believe that Jesus Christ will literally return to earth.

Holy Spirit

We believe that God the Holy Spirit is active in convicting unbelievers of their need for salvation, and is the Comforter and Guide who lives in every believer.

Bible

We believe that the Bible is the Word of God without any error, the sole authority for life and faith.

Man

We believe that man is a special creation of God, made in His image but that through the sin of the first man, Adam, mankind fell so that all men are sinners and need salvation.

Salvation

We believe that salvation is a gift of God’s grace that can only be received through repentance from sin and turning toward God through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Assurance

We believe that every person who is truly saved is eternally secure in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Eternity

We believe that those persons who die in their sins without Christ will spend eternity in Hell, and those persons who die with their sins forgiven through Christ will spend eternity in Heaven.

Baptism

We believe that water baptism is an act of obedience to the command of Christ and is by immersion after salvation.

Church

We believe that the church is both a local body as well as the global body of baptized believers with the Lord Jesus Christ as the Head.

Prayer

We believe that each believer has direct access to God through the Lord Jesus Christ.

Mission

We believe it is the responsibility and privilege of every Christian to make disciples of all nations.

Stewardship

We believe Christians are under an obligation to serve the Lord with their time, talents, and treasures and should recognize all these entrusted to them by God to use for His glory and for the good of others
