What We Believe

Unity in essentials (1 Corinthians 1:10)  |  Liberty in non-essentials (Romans 14:1, 4, 12, 22)  |  Love in all (1 Corinthians 13:2)

We believe the Bible is the verbally inspired Word of God and without mistakes as originally given. It is the complete revelation of His will for salvation and the only unfailing rule of faith and practice for the Christian life (2 Timothy 3:15).

We believe in one God, Creator of all things, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and that these three are co-eternal and of equal power (1 John 5:7; Matthew 28:19).

We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ; His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit; His virgin birth; His sinless life; His substitutionary death on a cross; His bodily resurrection; His ascension to the right hand of the Father; and His personal, imminent return (Matthew 1:22-23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1; 1 Corinthians 15:3; Acts 1:9-11).

We believe man was created by and for God; that by man’s disobeying God, every person incurred spiritual death, which is separation from God, and physical death as a consequence; and that all people are sinners by nature and practice (Genesis 2:7, 3:1-6; Romans 5:12; Revelation 20:14).

We believe the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins and that all who trust in Him, and Him alone are declared righteous because of His sacrificial death and are, therefore, in the right relationship with God (Ephesians 2:8-9).

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit indwelling all believers and thus enabling and empowering the life and ministry of the believer (John 14:26).

We believe in the bodily resurrection of everyone who has lived, the everlasting life and eternity in heaven for those who have accepted Jesus Christ, and the everlasting punishment of those who have rejected God’s forgiveness in His Son (Matthew 25:46; Luke 16; Revelation 20-22).

We believe Baptism (immersion) and Communion (the Lord’s Supper) are the two ordinances of the church and are outward symbols of the inward experience of having received new life in Christ (Acts 8:35-39; 1 Corinthians 11:23-24).

We believe in the consistent giving of our tithes and offerings to the local church for the support of the Lord’s work (Leviticus 27:30; Malachi 3:10; 1 Corinthians 16:2; 2 Corinthians 8:1-8).
