Statement of Faith
We believe there is one and only one living and true God. He is an intelligent, spiritual, and personal Being, the Creator, Redeemer, Preserver, and Ruler of the universe. God is infinite in holiness and all other perfections. God is all-powerful and all-knowing; and His perfect knowledge extends to all things, past, present, and future, including the future decisions of His free creatures. To Him, we owe the highest love, reverence, and obedience. The eternal triune God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being.
We believe that the Bible is the inerrant Word of God and is given by inspiration of God to men. The Bible is the full and complete revelation of the plan and history of redemption and is comprised of 66 books, divided into the Old and New Testaments. All Scripture is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
We believe the Scripture teaches a recent origin for man and the whole creation, spanning approximately 6,000 years from the creation of the world to today.
The Fall of Man
We believe that God created Adam and Eve in His image, but they sinned when tempted by Satan. In union with Adam, human beings are sinners by nature and by choice, alienated from God, and under His wrath. Only through God’s saving work in Jesus Christ can we be rescued, reconciled and renewed.
Deity of Christ
We believe that Jesus Christ is God incarnate, fully God and fully man, one Person in two natures. Jesus—Israel's promised Messiah—was conceived through the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He lived a sinless life, was crucified under Pontius Pilate, arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father as our High Priest and Advocate.
We believe that salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ. As our representative and substitute, Jesus shed His blood on the cross as the perfect, all-sufficient sacrifice for our sins. His atoning death and victorious resurrection constitute the only ground for salvation and reconciliation with the Heavenly Father. By the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, being justified by grace through faith, man becomes an heir of God, according to the hope of eternal life.
We Believe in Two Ordinances of the Church:
The ordinance of baptism by immersion is commanded by the Scriptures. It is an outward symbol of all who repent and believe on Christ as Savior and serves as a witness to the world of our identification with Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection, walking in newness of life.
The Lord's Supper (consisting of the bread and the fruit of the vine) is a symbolic remembrance of the death of Jesus Christ and the anticipation of His second coming.
The Great Commission
We believe in the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry. It is the responsibility of all believers to dedicate their lives to carrying out the work of the Great Commission.
The Work of the Holy Spirit
We believe that all believers are saved at the moment of salvation and at that moment, the Holy Spirit lives within them from that point on. However, the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and fire is a distinct and separate experience from salvation. The Holy Spirit will fill and refill believers throughout their lives, equipping Christians with power for life and service, the bestowment of the gifts, and their uses in the work of the ministry.
We believe the family is the foundational unit of society, made up of individuals by marriage, blood, or adoption. Marriage, as created by God, is the unification of one man and one woman for life. Husbands, wives, and children all have unique roles instituted by God as well. Ultimately, marriage is a picture to the world of the relationship between Christ and his Bride, the church.
Unity of the Church
We believe in the unity of the church. Denominations exist as man’s attempt to be as obedient as possible to God’s Word, but should not be a point of division. Worship and fellowship between denominations glorifies God and strengthens the Christian faith as long as the foundational truths of Christianity are held (Trinity, deity of Christ, physical death and resurrection, the atonement of our sin by Jesus’ blood, salvation by grace through faith, and complete revelation of the Bible).
Second Coming of Christ
We believe in the Second Coming of Jesus Christ for His Church.
