What We Believe

The Bible:

We believe that the sixty-six books of the Bible are inspired of God, infallible, and the supreme source of
truth in all matters of faith, morality, and Christian living. We believe that the Bible tells the story of God
and mankind. It gives us hope and purpose for this life and the life to come. (2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Pet. 1:20-21;
Ps. 119:105; Prov. 30:5-6).


We believe there is only one true God who is revealed to the world as the Father, the Son, and the
Holy Spirit. God is eternal with no beginning or end. He is the creator of all things. (Gen. 1:1; John 1:1-3,
14; Gen. 1:2).


We believe God make man in His own image to love and worship Him forever. But beginning
with Adam, all men and women have disobeyed and turned away from God. That is sin and separates us
from God. (Gen. 1:27; Rom. 3:10-12).

Jesus Christ:

We believe Jesus is the Son of God and the only One who can restore mankind’s broken
relationship with God. He is God who became human to pay the penalty of death for sin. He rose from
the dead on the third day to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to heaven and will
return again to rule forever. (Lk. 9:35; Jn. 1:29; 2 Cor. 5:21; Rom. 1:3-4; Acts 1:9-11; Heb. 9:27-28).

Holy Spirit:

We believe the Holy Spirit is God and was actively involved in creation. The Holy Spirit lives
in every Christian from the moment of salvation as a pledge of inheritance. The Holy Spirit provides the
Christian with the guidance and power to do what is right. (Gen. 1:2; Eph. 1:13-14; Rom. 8:9,14).


We believe that all humans have sinned and that our sins separate us from God and brings
God’s judgment upon us. Jesus came to pay that penalty of death. God’s grace can redeem us through
faith in Christ, by turning away from sin, confessing Christ as Lord, and being immersed in water.
Baptism is the point at which we die to our lost selves, are buried, and are raised to a resurrected life in
Christ (born again). (Rom. 6:23; Eph. 2:8; Lk. 13:3; Rom. 10:9; Acts 2:38; Rom. 6:3-4).

The Church:

We believe the church is the figurative “body of Christ” made up of faithful Christians with
Christ as the Head. Christians are to assemble for teaching, fellowship with one another, to take the
Lord’s Supper, and for prayer. This is worship to God. The leaders are to encourage and equip the
church for the work of service and to bring glory to God. (Eph. 2:19-22; Acts 2:47; Eph. 4:11-16).

As the church, we believe the members of the body should:
– Meet together regularly to grow in faith. (Heb. 10:25).
– Love one another, bear with one another, accept one another, and forgive one another. (Jn. 13:34; Gal. 6:2; Rom. 15:7; Matt. 18:21-22).
– Seek unity and peace with one another. (Eph. 4:3).
– Encourage and build up one another. (1 Thess. 5:11).
– Confess and pray for one another. (Jam. 5:16).
– Spur one another to love and good deeds. (Heb. 10:24).
– Pursue personal holiness and obedience to God’s Word. (1 Pet. 1:13-16).
– Strive together to make disciples of all nations. (Matt. 28:19-20).
