WHAT WE BELIEVE
This is our Statement of Faith
About the Scriptures
We believe the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God and accept it as the final authority of truth for Christian beliefs and living.
We believe in one God, creator of all things who exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus Christ, God’s only son, was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He was crucified and died, was buried and resurrected. He ascended into heaven from where He will return to judge both the living and the dead.
We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit and His ongoing ministry; by whose indwelling the Christian is empowered to live a godly life and be conformed to the image of Jesus Christ.
We believe that all people were created in the image of God to have fellowship with Him but became alienated in that relationship by the sinful nature and through sinful disobedience. Thus, all people require salvation, but are incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through their own efforts.
We believe that the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin. Therefore, God freely offers salvation to all who repent of their sin and place their faith in the completed work of Jesus Christ.
We believe that the Bible upholds monogamous, heterosexual marriage between a natural man and a natural woman as God’s exclusive design for marriage.
We believe that Jesus Christ established believer’s baptism by immersion, as well as the Lord’s Supper as ordinances to be observed by the church during the present age.
About the Church
We believe that the church is the body of Christ; a community of believers of which Jesus Christ is the head. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by loving Him and all of His creation.
