What We Believe
We believe the Bible, the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, are the inspired Word of God without error in the original writings, and are the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men, and the divine and final authority for all Christian faith and life.
We believe that there is one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect, and eternally existing in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus Christ is true God and true man, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.
We believe in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through the cross, the forgiveness of sins for mankind through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, where He is now our High Priest and Advocate, and in His personal return in power and glory.
We believe in the Blessed Hope, which is the rapture of the church at Christ’s coming.
We believe that the only means of salvation and being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious blood of Christ and that regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
We believe that the baptism of the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 2:4, is given to believers who ask for it. We also believe in the present-day ministry of the Holy Spirit, who is here to glorify Jesus, and by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; those that are saved to everlasting life, and those that are lost to everlasting damnation.
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in and through our Lord Jesus Christ, not just within our local church body, but in the unity of all those who by faith in Jesus, have made Him Lord and Savior of their lives.
We believe that water baptism by immersion, after accepting Christ as personal Savior, is a testimony of death to sin and of resurrection to a new life.
We believe that the Lord's Supper is a memorial service setting forth in sacred and symbolic manner the death of the Lord Jesus Christ; all true believers and only believers should share in it.
