What We Believe

 

The Bible

We believe the entire Bible is the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God and should be supreme and final authority in our lives and faith.
 
 

God the Father

We believe in one true God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  (Genesis 1:1, John 1:1, John 14:16-20; 10:30)
 
 

Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ was born of the Virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, died for our sins, was raised from the dead and is at the right hand of the Father as true God and true man.  (Matthew 1:18-25, 1 Corinthians 15:1-8, John 3:16)
 
 

Holy Spirit

We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit, as the third person of the Trinity, is to apply to people the saving work the saving work of Christ.  His ongoing work is to guide, lead, and empower the believer for godly living and service.  (John 16:5-15; Acts 1:7-8; Romans 8:26-27)
 
 

Salvation

We believe that all mankind was created in the image of God, but fell from relationship with God by voluntary disobedience.  Only through accepting Jesus Christ’s substitutionary sacrifice of His shed blood for our sins, can we be forgiven and restored into fellowship with God.  (John 3:16, Isaiah 59:2, John 14:6, Acts 4:12)
 
 

The Church

We believe that the Church is the body of Christ on earth.  It is empowered by the Holy Spirit and consists of people that follow Jesus Christ through discipleship and prayer as they reach out to the lost.  (Acts 2:42-47, Ephesians 4:1-16)
