OUR CORE BELIEFS


Bible

We believe the Bible as originally written was verbally inspired by God and is inerrant in all that it affirms. It is the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and opinions shall be tried. (2 Timothy 3:16 , 2 Peter 1:20-21)

God

We believe in God the Father as the eternally existent creator and sustainer. He, along with Jesus and the Holy Spirit, in eternity past, planned redemption. He is active in the world today and is the only being worthy of worship. (Genesis 1:1, Isaiah 43:7)

Jesus Christ

We believe in Jesus Christ as the eternally existent, instrumental in creation, fully divine God/Man, who, through His death on the cross, made atonement to God for the sins of those who believe in Him. And through His bodily resurrection provided hope by defeating death, overcoming Satan, and securing a future resurrection for the redeemed. He currently intercedes for believers. (Colossians 1:15-20John 14:6)

The Holy Spirit

We believe in the Holy Spirit as a divine person equal to God the Father and God the Son and of the same nature. He is presently active in all who have put their faith in Jesus. We believe that the sign gifts were unique to the burgeoning Christ movement of the first century. (1 Corinthians 6:19Ephesians 1:13-14)

Mankind

We believe that humans were created in the image of God and that there are two sexes, male and female. Through willful sin humans fell from perfection and stand condemned before God. Therefore, all humans are born into sinbecause of their predecessor Adam. Humankind’s purpose is to worship the true God. We believe that marriage is a covenant between one man and one woman. (Genesis 1:26-28, Psalm 51:5Romans 5:12)

Salvation

We believe that salvation is completely a work of God through Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Salvation is by grace alone through faith alone and people can do nothing to earn it. (Ephesians 2:8-9)

Church

We believe the local church is a congregation of baptized believers, associated by covenant of faith and fellowship of the Gospel. We practice the ordinance of believer’s baptism by immersion and fellowship through the Lord’s Supper. Our purpose is to spread the gospel to the entire world. (Ephesians 3:10)

Future

We believe that in the future Christ will come again to redeem the church and Israel. Furthermore, He will establish a new heaven and new earth where all who are redeemed will be with Him for eternity and all who are condemned will spend eternity separated from Him in Hell. (Revelation 20:12-15Revelation 21:1-4)
