We believe in one God, creator and sustainer of all things, who exists eternally in three persons, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. These three are one in essence but distinct in person and function. We believe that God is limitless in power, knowledge, wisdom, love, and holiness (1 Chronicles 29:11; 1 John 5:5-7; Revelation 4:11).
We believe the Bible is inspired by God and is without error as originally written. The Bible is God's unique and final authority on Christian faith and practice. The Bible, both Old and New Testaments, though written by men, was supernaturally inspired by God so that all its words are the written true revelation of God (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
We believe Man was created in the image and likeness of God. Man willfully disobeyed God incurring spiritual and physical death. Each person is a sinner by nature and is in need of divine salvation (Romans 3:23; Romans 6:23).
We believe that Jesus Christ offered Himself as a sacrifice by the appointment of God the Father. He fulfilled the demands of God by His obedient life, died on the cross in full substitution and payment for the sins of all, was buried, and on the third day, He arose from the dead and ascended into Heaven where He now intercedes for all believers (Romans 5:8).
We believe that we are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ; His death, burial, and resurrection. Salvation is a gift from God, not a result of our good works or of any human efforts. The believer is declared righteous, born again by the Holy Spirit, turned from sin, and assured of heaven for eternity (Ephesians 2:8-9).
We believe the Holy Spirit lives within all who place their faith in Jesus Christ, conforming themselves to the likeness of Him (Ephesians 1:13-14).
We believe in the return (second coming) of Jesus Christ for all believers. (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17).
We believe the church is a group of people God has designed for encouragement and support for believers while corporately glorifying God through various forms of worship and outreach, in order to advance the Kingdom of God on earth (1 Thessalonians 5:11; 1 Chronicles 16:29; Isaiah 58:6-7).
We practice baptism by immersion. Once a believer accepts Jesus Christ as their Savior, the new believer is commanded by the Word of God to be baptized in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19).
We believe in the celebration of the Lord’s Supper: a unique time of communion in the presence of God when the elements of bread and juice, representing the Body and Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, are taken in remembrance of Jesus’ sacrifice on the Cross (Luke 22:19).
