What We Believe

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, inerrant, and infallible Word of God. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost. (2nd Timothy 3:16-17, 1st Peter 1:21, Matthew 3:15-17, 2nd Corinthians 13:14)

We believe that Jesus Christ in the flesh was both God and man; that He was born of a virgin and that He lived a sinless life, in which He taught and wrought mighty works, wonders, and signs revealed in the Gospels; that He was crucified, died for our sins, and was raised from the dead body. Later He ascended to the Father’s right hand where He is the head of the Church, intercedes for believers, and shall return in a personal, visible and imminent manifestation. (Matthew 1:18, 21-23, Hebrews 4:15, Matthew 28:6, Matthew 16:18, Acts 1:11)

We believe in salvation through the redeeming blood of Christ by repentance to God. We are justified by our faith in Jesus Christ and our confession of His Lordship in our lives. We believe that such salvation is entirely apart from good works, baptism, church membership, or our effort and is of pure grace. (Hebrews 9:22, Romans 10:9-10,13, Ephesians 2:8-9, Romans 6:23)

We believe that the redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides divine healing for us in answer to believing prayer. (1st Peter 2:24, Psalms 103:2-3, James 5:15)

We believe that a true believer is eternally secure, that we cannot lose our salvation, but that sin will interrupt the joy of our fellowship with God and bring the loving chastisement of our Heavenly Father. (John 10:28-30, John 3:16, Romans 8:1)

We believe that it is the goal of every believer to grow in spiritual maturity through obedience to the Word of God and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. (John 10:10, Ephesians 3:20, Philippians 4:13)

We believe in water baptism and the observance of the Lord’s Supper. (John 22:19-20, Mark 14:22-24, Matthew 26:26-28, Matthew 28:19-20)
