What We Believe

God: We believe in one God, the living and true God, who is the sole Creator, an infinite all-knowing (past, present, future) Spirit, existing eternally in three Persons - the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit - each having precisely the same nature, attributes, and perfections.

Bible: We believe the Bible is the Word of God, the inerrant authority and standard for all matters of faith and life. We believe that the entire Scripture centers on the Lord Jesus Christ and when properly understood, leads to Him.

Man: We believe man, though created by God in innocence, voluntarily chose to sin and consequently stands guilty and condemned before God, incapable of redeeming himself, and completely dependent on the grace and mercy of God for salvation.

Jesus Christ: We believe Jesus Christ is the eternal, impeccable Son of God, Who became man without ceasing to be God and continues to be the God-Man forever. We believe that He, conceived by the Holy Spirit, was born of the Virgin Mary, by this, entered into human flesh in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful man. We believe Jesus Christ through His death, burial and resurrection is the only provision by God for the salvation of man. We believe His death on the cross was a substitutionary sacrifice for the sins of all men and His bodily resurrection from the dead guaranteed redemption and salvation to all those who believe.

Holy Spirit: We believe the Holy Spirit is God, possessing all the divine attributes. He took up His abode in the world to reveal and glorify Christ and to apply the saving work of Christ to men. He indwells and baptizes all believers at the moment of their salvation and empowers the believer to live the Christian life.

Salvation: We believe mankinds only hope to be rescued from the judgment of God is the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross, and each person must believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior in order to be forgiven and to receive eternal life. One is saved by grace and justified by faith, making salvation a free gift of God apart from any human worth, merit, or ability.

Second Coming: We believe in the personal bodily return of the Lord Jesus Christ to earth to reign for 1000 years. Jesus Christ will reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords and every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of the Father.

Christian Living: We believe it is the responsibility of every believer, as a new creation in Christ and sanctified by God, to be obedient to the Word of God, grow in spiritual maturity, and demonstrate a love for God, the believer, and the lost as instructed by the Scripture and enabled by the Holy Spirit.

Evangelism: We believe it is the privilege and responsibility of every believer to personally witness and share the Gospel in obedience to the Great Commission (Mark 16:15; Acts 1:8; John 17:18; 20:21;2 Corinthians 5:20).

Local Church: We believe the local church is the instrument God has ordained to carry out His will in the redemption of man. Evangelism is not only sharing Christ with a person to the initial point of saving faith, but also includes bringing the person to spiritual maturity. This type of evangelism is impossible without the caring fellowship of the local church.

"Do you not say, There are yet four months, and then comes the harvest? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes, and look on the fields, that they are white for harvest.

"Already he who reaps is receiving wages and is gathering fruit for life eternal; that he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together.
