WHAT WE BELIEVE

We believe in the local church as a place where believers gather together for edification, teaching from the Word of God, and ministry to and through each other according to their spiritual gift. The local church provides identity to its members as well as encouragement, interdependence, fellowship, and spiritual direction.

BIBLE

We believe the Bible is the inspired, perfect, and authoritative Word of God.

GOD

There is one eternally existing God who has three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is the creator of all that exists, both visible and invisible, and is therefore worthy of all glory and praise.  God is perfect in love, power, holiness, goodness, knowledge, wisdom,  justice, and mercy. He is unchangeable and therefore is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

JESUS CHRIST

God has revealed himself to us through his son, Jesus Christ, who is the visible image of the invisible God.  He was born of virgin, lived a sinless life on earth, was crucified for our sins, buried and raised from the dead for our salvation.  Only through faith in Jesus Christ and His work on the cross can mankind be saved.

Holy Spirit

We believe in the multi-faceted work of the Holy Spirit to bring conviction of sin, revelation of the truth of the Gospel of Christ, drawing of the sinner to God, adoption of mankind into the Body of Christ through regeneration and the distribution and administration of the Gifts and Fruit of the Holy Spirit in the believer’s life.

Salvation

Jesus Christ came to reconcile us with God. He lived a life without sin and willingly died on the cross to pay the penalty for our transgressions. God raised him from the dead and now, by grace, offers as a free gift eternal life to all who follow Christ, by faith, as their Lord and Savior. That is why salvation can be found in Christ alone.

The Church

We believe in the local church as a place where believers gather together for edification, teaching from the Word of God, and ministry to and through each other according to their spiritual gift. The local church provides identity to its members as well as encouragement, interdependence, fellowship, and spiritual direction.

Eternity

We believe in eternity. People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation.  To be eternally separated from God is hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life in Heaven.  Heaven and hell are real places of eternal existence.

Ressurection

Jesus Christ is returning one day to judge both the living and the dead and to usher in the fullness of God's kingdom on earth.
