What We Believe

The Bible - We believe that the original documents of the Scriptures were God breathed and completely free from error. God has preserved His Word for us through the ages and we have today an authoritative source for all faith and practice.


God - We believe that there is one God who has eternally existed as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God has revealed Himself to man so that humanity can be restored to relationship with Him.


Jesus Christ - Jesus Christ, perfect God and perfect man, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, and died and rose again to solve the problem of human sin. He now sits at the right hand of the Father, making intercession on our behalf.


Holy Spirit - We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Godhead, active in the new birth of believers, indwells each believer and produces fruit in believers as they yield to His control.


Creation - We believe in the literal six days of Creation as set forth in the book of Genesis.


Humanity - We believe that man was created in the image of God but because of his fall into sin is now a sinner by nature and totally unable to reach God on his own.


Salvation - We believe that the salvation of man is achieved by the gracious sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross. The requirements for salvation are repentance and faith.


Security of the Believer - We believe that those who truly come to salvation in Christ can never lose that salvation since it is totally dependent on Jesus Christ.


The Church - We believe that all believers make up the church of Jesus Christ. The local church is a congregation of professing, baptized believers who are associated with each other by a covenant and articles of faith and by the observance of the ordinances of baptism and the Lord's Supper. Together they seek to fulfill God's purposes.


Return of Christ - We believe in the literal return of Christ in the air to take His church to heaven before the coming of the great tribulation. We also believe in His subsequent return to earth to set up His Kingdom.
