We Believe

In the Trinity: one God in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, co-equal and Creator of the universe.

The Father is all powerful, all knowing, all loving, and all wise. History goes according to His purposes.

Jesus is the Son of God, eternally existing, and became man. He lived a sinless life and became the perfect sacrifice for sin by dying on a cross. He rose from the dead to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven and will return again to earth to reign.

The Holy Spirit guides Christians into truth, exalts Christ, Convicts, Cultivates godly character, comforts, bestows spiritual gifts, and seals believers.

The Bible, inspired by God, is His Word, written by man under the guidance of the Holy Spirit and is without error. It is supreme truth for Christians.

Man is created in the image of God; marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called sin, which separates man from God.

Salvation is God’s gift. Only by trusting Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ as Savior.

Baptism – scriptural baptism: complete immersion under water after salvation. Baptism has no saving power but is the first act of obedience symbolizing faith in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus, the believer’s death to sin and resurrection to walk anew in Christ, and that believers have everlasting life.

The Lord’s Supper is a symbolic act of obedience remembering the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus. The Bread is symbolic of His body and the juice represents his blood.

The Church is a local body of baptized believers associated by common faith and fellowship; all should exercie God given gifts and tell others the gospel message. The church is autonomous serving under the Lordship of Christ. All members are equally responsible to serve with the pastors and deacons.

Christian Unity – To live in harmony with believers is clearly the teaching of the New Testament. It is the responsibility of each believer to endeavor to live in fellowship with each member of the congregation.
