Scripture   We believe the Scriptures, both Old and New Testament, to be the inspired Word of God, without error in the original writings, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men, and the Divine and final authority for all Christian faith and life.
  GOD We  believe in one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
 

JESUS CHRIST

 

We  believe Jesus Christ is true God and true Man, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.  He died on the cross as a sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures.  Further, He arose bodily from the dad and ascended into Heaven, where at the right hand of the Majesty on High, He is now our High Priest and Advocate, and in the person of the Holy Spirit, He indwells all believers.
  HOLY SPIRIT We  believe the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, and during this age to convict, regenerate, seal, indwell, guide, instruct, and empower believers for life and service.  We believe in the spiritual gifts and their practice, as directed in the balanced instructions of the Bible.
  MANKIND We  believe Man was created in the image of God, but fell into sin and is therefore lost.  Only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit through personal faith in the completed work of Jesus Christ on the cross, can salvation and spiritual life be obtained.
  SALVATION We  believe the shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe and only such as receive Jesus Christ are born of the Holy Spirit and thus become children of God.
  ORDINANCES We  believe water baptism and the Lord's Supper are ordinances to be observed by the Church during this Age.  They are, however, not to be regarded as means of salvation or prerequisites for church membership.  This church shall practice baptism by immersion.
  THE CHURCH We  believe the true Church is composed of all such persons who are regenerated by the Holy Spirit through saving faith in Jesus Christ, are united together in the Body of Christ of which He is Lord and Head and are commissioned for the God-given task of proclaiming the gospel to every person.  Only those who are thus members of the true Church shall be eligible for membership in the local church.   Every church has the right under Christ to decide and govern its own affairs.
  CHRIST'S RETURN We  believe in the personal and imminent return of our Lord Jesus Christ, and that this has a vital bearing on the personal life and service of the believer.
  JUDGMENT We  believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead; of the unbeliever to judgment and eternal separation from God and of the believer to everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord.
