What We Believe


We believe in one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing as God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Father: John 5:19-30, 2 Corinthians 6:18, Timothy 6:15-16 Son: John 10:30, Hebrews 1:3 Holy Spirit: 2 Corinthians 3:17-18

Person and Work of Jesus Christ

We believe that by the miracle of the virgin birth the Lord Jesus Christ, Eternal Son of God, became man without ceasing to be God in order to reveal God and to redeem humanity; that He died for our sins (the sins of all people) as a substitutionary sacrifice and rose bodily from the dead for our justification; and that He is now exalted at the right hand of God, Head of the Church and Lord of the individual believer, fulfilling His ministry as our Great High Priest and Advocate. We believe in the personal coming of our Lord, that Jesus Christ will come again to the earth – personally, visibly and bodily – to consummate history and the eternal plan of God.  
Matthew 1:18-20, Luke 24, John 1:1-14, Romans 5:6-11, Hebrews 8,1 John 2:1, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

The Person and Work of the Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity. His ministry is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ. He convicts the world of sin, regenerates the believer, and places him in the Church, which is the Body of Christ. We believe that He indwells, guides, instructs, gifts, and empowers the Christian for godly living and service, and that He seals and keeps the believer until the Lord comes. At salvation the believer is baptized by means of the Spirit into the Body of Christ, in-dwelt by the Spirit, and sealed by the Spirit until the day of redemption.
John 16:1-33, Romans 8:9, 1 Corinthians 12:12-13, Ephesians 1:13-14

The Bible

We believe that the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, are verbally inspired by God, are inerrant in all of their parts in the original writings, and are the Christian’s final authority in faith and conduct.
2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:20-21


We believe that people were created in the image of God, but that they sinned, incurring not only physical death, but also spiritual death which is inherited by every member of Adam’s race. We believe that people are subject to the power of Satan and have within themselves no possible means of recovery or salvation.
Genesis 1:26-27; Romans 3:23, 5:12-21, 6:23


We believe that salvation is the free gift of God, neither merited nor secured in part or in whole by any human virtue or work.  Salvation is received only by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, in whom all true believers have, as present possessions, the gift of eternal life, a perfect righteousness, adoption into the family of God, deliverance and complete security from all condemnation, every spiritual resource needed for life and godliness, and the divine guarantee that they shall never perish. We believe that such a salvation can never be lost or forfeited.
John 10:28; John 17:3; Romans 8:1, 10:9-10; Ephesians 1:1-10, 2:8-9; 1 John 5:11

The Christian Walk

We believe that we are called with the holy calling to live not according to the desire of the flesh (the old nature within, opposed to God), but according to the Spirit of God. We believe that a person’s walk in Christ ought to reflect His character of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. We trust the Spirit of God to lead the child of God into paths of righteousness.
Romans 8, Galatians 5:22-23, Ephesians 2:8-10  

The Church

We believe that the true Church is composed of all who, through saving faith in Jesus Christ, have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit; that those who are thus members of the true Church will manifest participation in the local church.
1 Corinthians 12:12-13, Ephesians 4:15-16 


We believe that Baptism is one of the ordinances left by Christ for the Church today. Baptism is an outward sign of the inward reality that a person has turned from one’s own way to God’s way. While Baptism is not necessary for salvation, it is a necessary part of the process of becoming a disciple of Jesus Christ. To baptize literally means to dip or immerse; therefore, the preferred mode of Baptism is immersion.  We understand Baptism as a beautiful public statement of one’s faith in Christ and therefore a great privilege and step of obedience to Christ.
Matthew 28:19-20, Acts 2:38-41


We believe that the Lord’s table is the second ordinance left to the Church by Jesus Christ. Partaking of Communion is a symbolic act which represents one’s present abiding fellowship with Christ. The elements specifically cause us to remember His broken body as payment for humanity’s sin and His blood as a picture of the New Covenant, which is “Christ in you, the hope of glory."
Mark 14:22-25, John 6:53-65, 1 Corinthians 11:23-36


We believe that Jesus Christ “died for our sins; He was buried, and on the third day He was raised from the dead. He appeared to Peter, and then to the twelve and after that He appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers at the same time” (I Corinthians 15:3-6). We believe in the bodily resurrection of all people. Believers are resurrected to enjoy eternal life with God. Unbelievers are resurrected to experience judgment and then eternal suffering apart from God.
John 20:1-9; 1 Corinthians 15:51-52; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation 20:4-6, 12-15


We believe marriage is defined in the Bible as a covenant, a sacred bond between one man and one woman, instituted and publicly entered into before God.
Matthew 19:4-6.
