What we believe

The Bible – We believe
in the verbal, plenary inspiration of the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments and that they compose the entire Word of God. The Scriptures are inerrant, infallible, and God-breathed; and therefore, are the final authority for faith and life. The sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments are the complete and divine revelation of God to man.

God – We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

The Person and Work of Christ –
We believe
in the deity of Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and in His personal return in power and glory.

Salvation by grace – We believe that salvation is the gift of God brought to man by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, Whose precious blood was shed on Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins (Ephesians 2:8-10; I Peter 1:18-19) and that in order to be saved, sinners must be born again; that the new birth is a new creation in Christ Jesus; that it is instantaneous and not a process.

The Church – The Church, as the body of Christ, consisting of believers. We are baptized into one body and set apart to God through the cleansing blood of Jesus Christ and a new life through the Holy Spirit. The Church functions to encourage one another to love and good deeds through the unifying work of the Holy Spirit.

The Sacraments – Jesus Christ instituted two Sacraments. Baptism is public display for one’s faith in the Jesus Christ. The Lord’s Supper symbolizes Christ’s body offered on the cross for man. The Lord’s Supper expresses fellowship and unity of believers.

This doctrinal statement does not exhaust the extent of our faith. The Bible itself is the sole and final source of all that we believe.
