What We Believe

About God

God is Spirit- without beginning or end. God is One Being and has revealed Himself to us as; Our Heavenly Father, Jesus- His Son- the fullness of God in a sinless human being, and as the Holy Spirit- The Spirit of God indwelling every person who has repented and placed their trust in Jesus as their Savior. - Matthew 28:19; II Corinthians 13:14

About God The Father

God in Heaven; without beginning or end, beyond description in perfect holiness and beauty, worthy of all praise, glory, honor and worship. The One believers address as our Heavenly Father and Abba (Daddy), the One who provides every good gift for His children, and the One Jesus told us to pray to and worship in Spirit and Truth.

Matthew 6:9, 6:26, 7:11, 11:25, Eph. 1:3

About Jesus Christ

God in a sinless human being. Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary and is fully God and fully man. He died for our sins according to the scriptures. He was buried and He was raised bodily from the dead according to the scriptures. He suffered the punishment and death (physically and spiritually) we earned. He is our mediator, "High Priest" and Advocate before the Father.   John 1:1-3; Philippians 2:5-11; I Corinthians 15:1-7

About The Holy Spirit

God indwelling every believer. The Holy Spirit produces new life and permanently indwells every person who trusts in Jesus from the very moment they receive Christ as their personal Savior. It is the work of the Holy Spirit that produces in every believer the desire and power to do God's will in life. Philippians 2:13, John 3:1-7; Romans 8:9-10

About The Bible

The Bible, both Old and New Testaments, is inspired by God in every word, completely without error in the original writings, and is the supreme and final authority in faith and life.

II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:21

About Man

Man was created in the image of God, but man sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death, which is eternal separation from God. All human beings are born in this state and have a sinful nature.

Romans 5:12-14; Ephesians 2:1-3

About Salvation

Salvation is entirely a free gift of God's love. Acquired through placing our personal faith, trust and reliance solely in the finished work of Jesus Christ, who died on the cross as a substitutionary sacrifice for sinners. 

Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:4-7

About Things of First Importance

"That Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures,

that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures... (1 Cor. 15:1-8)

About The Forgiveness of Sins

"All the prophets testify about him (Jesus) that everyone who believes (trusts, relies, depends solely) in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name.” (Acts 10:43)

About The Church

The purpose of the Church is to worship, increasingly know and glorify God (Eph. 3:21). We do this by encouraging and building ourselves up in the faith (Eph. 4:13-16), by instruction of the Word (II Tim. 2:2,15, 3:16,17), by fellowship (Acts 2:42; I John 1:3), by keeping the ordinances (Luke 22:19; Acts 2:38-42), and by fulfilling the Lord's Great Commission to His Church. (Matt. 28:19; Acts 1:8, 2:42).

About The Blessed Hope

The Blessed Hope of the Church (every Jesus-follower) is the reality of the imminent, personal return of her Lord and Savior. I Thessalonians 4:13-18; Titus 2:11-15

About Man's Eternal Destiny

Man's eternal destiny is solely determined by his acceptance or rejection of Jesus Christ as God's sole provision for man's sin. Those who accept Christ as their Savior will be resurrected to eternal life and joy in the presence of God, but those who reject Christ will be resurrected to judgment and separation from God for all eternity. - John 3:16-18, 5:22-29; II Thessalonians 1:5-10

About Baptism

Baptism does not save us. It is an outward expression of an inward change; a public declaration of faith in Jesus Christ.

If you have received Jesus as your Savior and would like to be baptized, we ask you attend our baptism class. We are excited to celebrate your new life in Christ!

About The Lord's Supper/Communion

The Lord's Supper is the commemoration and proclamation of His death for our sins until He comes. It should always be preceded by a time of solemn self-examination and is an opportunity to confess to God any sin the Holy Spirit reveals to us and to receive full forgiveness and restored intimacy with God (I Cor. 11:23-38, 1 John 1:9). We also believe the Lord's Supper is an actual communion with the risen Christ who is present in a unique way, fellowshipping with His people (I Cor. 10:16).
