What We Believe

Truth You Can Build Your Life On:

 

  • We believe in One God who manifests Himself as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, and we accept it as the final authority for all matters of faith and practice.
  • We believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God, and that He died for our sins, was buried, rose from the dead three days later, ascended into heaven, and will someday return to judge the world.
  • We believe that the Holy Spirit is an active and operative part of the triune God and that He dwells in the heart of every Christian.
  • We believe that every person has worth as a creation of God, but that "all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God," and that the penalty for our sins is eternal separation from God.
  • We believe that the forgiveness of sins and the promise of eternal life are only by grace through the blood of Jesus Christ.
  • We believe that one receives God's grace by putting faith in Christ, repenting of sin, confessing Christ, and being immersed into Christ, but that none of these is sufficient in and of itself.
  • We believe in the Church of Jesus Christ, founded on the Day of Pentecost and consisting of all Christians everywhere.
  • We believe the Bible teaches that the Elders are to be servant leaders who guide and direct the local congregation.
