Our Beliefs

We believe the Bible is the inspired, inerrant Word of God and final authority in all matters of faith and practice (2 Timothy 3:16)
 
We believe in one God, creator of the universe, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, three in one, co-equal. (Matthew 28:19)
 
We believe in Jesus Christ the Son of God who died for our sins and arose from the dead. (1 Corinthians 15:1-8).
 
We believe mans’s relationship with God has been broken by our own sin. We can be restored to a relationship with God only through the sacrificial blood of Jesus Christ. This restored relationship is based on God’s Grace, not our own efforts. God calls us to accept His gift through faith in His Son Jesus. (Romans 3:23, John 3:16)
 
We believe those who accept Jesus by faith are called to repent of sin, confess Him as Lord, and be baptized. (Romans 10:9, Acts 2:38)
 
We believe that baptism is ordained by Christ as the time when our faith meets God’s Grace. In Baptism we identify with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. A past life of sin is buried, and a new life of doing right -empowered by the Holy spirit – begins. (Matthew 28:18-20, Mark 16:16, Acts 2:38, Romans 6:1-7, Colossians 2:9-12, 1 Peter 3:20-22)
 
We believe that Communion (The Lord’s Supper) is ordained by Christ and observed weekly as a memorial meal of Jesus sacrifice on the cross. (Matthew 26:26-29, 1 Corinthians 11:23-29, Acts 20:7)
 
We believe that the Church is the body of Christ on earth, empowered by the Holy Spirit, and exists to save the lost and edify the saved. (Ephesians 4:1-16)
 
We believe that Jesus Christ will one day return to earth to redeem His church. Christians will be joined with Him together in heaven forever. (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)
