What we believe

​God: We believe there is one, and only one, living and true God, an infinite, intelligent Spirit, the Maker and Supreme Ruler of heaven and earth, inexpressibly glorious in holiness and worthy of all possible honor, confidence and love; and that in the unity of the Godhead there are three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, equal in every divine perfection, and executing distinct, but harmonious offices in the great work of redemption. Deut. 6:4; Eph. 4:6; 1 John 5:7

Jesus Christ: We believe that God the Son, Jesus Christ, was born of a virgin and incarnated Himself in a perfect human body and he was; therefore, both fully God and fully man. We believe he lived a sinless life and died on the cross then rose from the grave three days later. We believe that Jesus Christ is the ONLY Savior of lost mankind. John 3:16; John 14:6, 1 Corinthians 15:3-5

Holy Spirit: God the Holy Spirit convicts men of sin, righteousness and judgment, indwells believers in Jesus Christ, and bestows spiritual gifts for the equipping of the saints. 1 Corinthians 16:9, Acts 1:8, John 14:26

Mankind and Salvation: We believe all men have sinned in failing to do all that God desires. A person cannot exist in this world without sin, because it is a spiritual characteristic of the entire race. No effort by man can produce righteousness before God. Through faith man, drawn by the Holy Spirit, may accept the grace of God provided through the redemptive death of Christ. Christ came as both God and man and as such was Mediator, Sacrifice and Redeemer to bring to God those who believe. Salvation manifests itself in Justification, Experiential Sanctification, and Glorification. Justification occurs at the time one receives Christ as personal Savior, and the Holy Spirit causes spiritual rebirth and indwells the believer. Experiential sanctification is the process in which the believer grows in grace toward conformity with Jesus Christ. Glorification is the final redemptive experience occurring when the believer comes into the presence of God in Heaven. Romans 3:23; 6:23; 10:13; Ephesians 2:8-9

The Church: We believe that Jesus Christ established His church during His earthly ministry. We believe in the local church and the universal church. This means that all people who have called upon the name of the Lord and being saved by Grace through faith in Christ are a part of the universal Church. However, believers are to also physically gather as part of a local congregation of baptized believers of like faith for the purpose of worship, accountability, growth in the faith, use of spiritual gifts, fulfilling the great commission, and partaking of the two ordinances which are Baptism and the Lord's Supper. Matthew 16:18; Hebrews 10:25; Acts 20:28; Romans 12; 1 Corinthians 11 & 12, Matthew 28:19-20

The Bible: We believe the Scriptures were written by men who were inspired by God for that purpose. The Scriptures are infallible and without error. They are authoritative in revealing God's character, His salvation for mankind, the principles by which God directs men to live, and any subject which they address. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 

The Great Commission: We believe that Jesus Christ commanded His church to go into all the world, preach the Gospel, baptize converts, and organize them into local congregations. We believe that this program is to be the heartbeat of the church which He established. Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 1:8
