What We Believe 

The Bible is Sole Authority - the Old and New Testaments are the verbally inspired Word of God, they are without error in the original writings, and they are the complete and final revelation of God. II Timothy 3:16-17

The Trinity - There is only one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Who are co-equal in their essential nature, attributes, and perfection; and each of Whom is to be honored and worshiped as God.

Jesus Christ - Jesus Christ is God the Son, the promised Messiah, conceived in the flesh by the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, true God and true man, without sin, and the only mediator between God and Man. Jesus Christ, through His death on the cross, paid for all sin, completely satisfied the righteous wrath of God against sin, and provided redemption and forgiveness for all who believe.

Salvation - Eternal salvation from sin, death and hell is the free gift of God's grace, and is based solely upon man's personal faith and belief in Jesus Christ.

Baptism - We believe in baptism by immersion in water as a proclamation of faith and an experience of fellowship with Christ in his death and resurrection. We believe in the observation of the Lord’s Supper as a proclamation of Christ’s work and Kingdom until He returns.

The Holy Spirit - We believe that followers of Jesus are indwelt by the Holy Spirit of God who is the third person of the Trinity and who strengthens believers to grow in holiness and in obedience to the commands of Christ.

The Church - We believe that the church is the presence of the Kingdom of Christ on earth. Followers of Christ join together in localized bodies or local churches in order to live out the life of a disciple.

The Second Coming of Christ - We believe that Christ will return to fully establish His authority over all things. Christ will judge all of humanity, condemning all evil and calling those who have believed in Him to life in His everlasting Kingdom.
