What We Believe

The Word of God - We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, fully inspired and infallible, and inerrant in the original manuscripts, written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and that it has supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

The Trinity - We believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons, that these are equal in every divine nature, and that they execute distinct but harmonious offices in the work of creation, providence and redemption.

God the Father - We believe in God the Father, an infinite, personal spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power, and love. We believe that He concerns Himself graciously and mercifully in the affairs of each person, that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through His Son, Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ - We believe in Jesus Christ, God's eternally begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, and teachings. We believe in His substitutionary atoning death, burial and bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, and perpetual intercession for His people. We await His personal visible return to earth.

The Holy Spirit - We believe in the Holy Spirit who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify, and empower all who believe in Jesus Christ. We believe that the Holy Spirit seals and indwells every believer in Christ at the moment of salvation, and that He is an abiding helper, teacher, and guide. The Holy Spirit distributes spiritual gifts to every believer for the benefit and building up of the Church.

Salvation - We believe that all people are sinners by nature and by choice and are, therefore, under condemnation. According to His grace, God elects, calls, and keeps those He chooses. The Holy Spirit regenerates those who repent of their sins and trust in Jesus Christ as Savior. In salvation, all believers receive the righteousness of Christ and eternal life. True believers are eternally secure and persevere.

The Church - We believe that the Church is divinely ordained of God to fulfill His mission in the world. This Church, under the headship of Christ, is expressed in local congregations of fellowshipping believers committed to worship, encouragement, instruction, and the making of disciples. The Church is called by God to evangelize every nation and people and to be salt and light to this lost world.

Christian Conduct - We believe that, through the power of the Holy Spirit, Christians should live for the glory of God and the well-being of others; that their conduct should be blameless before the world; that they should be faithful stewards of their possessions; and that they should seek to realize for themselves and others the full stature of maturity in Christ.

The Ordinances - We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ has committed two ordinances to the local church: baptism and the Lord's Supper. We believe that Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water in the name of the triune God. We believe that Christ instituted the Lord’s Supper for commemoration of His death. We believe that these two ordinances should be observed and administered until the return of the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Last Things - We believe in the visible and personal return of Jesus Christ in order to culminate history. At the appointed time, the dead shall be raised and all mankind shall appear before the Lord to give an account. Believers in Christ will be transformed and enjoy everlasting life in the presence of their Lord. Unbelievers will be condemned to everlasting conscious punishment, forever separated from God.
