What We Believe...

Our Faith

Our deepest convictions affect every decision we make as a church. While the Bible itself is our formal document of faith, the following statements should help you understand those biblical ideas that most fundamentally define who we are.

  • We believe that there is one God eternally existing in three persons - Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He is the Creator of all things. (Genesis 1:1; John 1:1; Matthew 3:16-17; 2 Corinthians 13:14)
  • We believe in Jesus Christ, God in human flesh, who came to this world to die for our sins and who was bodily raised from the dead. (1 Corinthians 15:1-8)
  • We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of the Living God, who draws people to Christ and who lives in every person who has received Christ. (John 16:8-9; Acts 2:38; Ephesians 1:13-14)
  • We believe the Bible is the only infallible, inspired, and authoritative Word of God. As such it is our final authority for all matters of faith and Christian practice. (2 Timothy 3:14-16)
  • We believe that man, created by God, willfully sinned and as a result, is lost and without hope apart from Jesus Christ. (Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23; Acts 4:12)
  • We believe that salvation - the forgiveness of sins - is available only by the grace of God through the blood of Jesus Christ. This free gift of salvation is offered to all who receive and believe in Christ as Lord and Savior. (Ephesians 2:8-9; Colossians 2:6; John 3:16)
  • We believe the Bible clearly teaches the pattern to receive Christ is to believe in Jesus as God’s Son and Savior of the world, repent of personal sin, and confess Christ publicly. (Romans 10:9; Acts 2:36-38,Mark 16:16)
  • We believe that the Church is the body and bride of Christ on earth, founded on the Day of Pentecost, consisting of all Christians everywhere. (Matthew 16:13-18; Acts 2:14-47)
  • We believe in a believer’s baptism and that immersion under water is the prescribed mode of baptism as indicated by Jesus’ own example and command, and best depicts our union with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection. (Mark 1:9-10; Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:4)
  • We believe that death seals the eternal destiny of each person (Hebrews 9:27). Those who are forgiven will spend eternity with God in heaven, those not forgiven will be eternally separated from God in hell. (John 5:28-29; Daniel 12:2; 2 Corinthians 4:14; Acts 17:31)
  • We believe in the personal return and victorious reign of Jesus Christ, who will judge in equity and justice all people who have ever lived, giving over those who were unrepentant to eternal condemnation but receiving the redeemed into eternal life. (Acts 1:11; 2 Peter 3:9-10; Rev. 19:11-16)
