What We Believe

GOD IS ONE IN THREE
We believe that God is One in Three Persons - Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We hold to the doctrine of the Trinity. All three Persons are co-equal and co-eternal.


WHERE THE BIBLE SPEAKS WE SPEAK
We believe that the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, is the inspired, inerrant, infallible Word of God. We believe that the New Testament is the new covenant by which all believers are to follow as the standard of faith and practice. We acknowledge the Old Testament is a school master which shows the sinfulness of man, as well as, points to Jesus the coming Messiah. We follow no creed but Christ. We believe that where the Bible speaks, we speak; where the Bible is silent we are silent. We believe that in essentials unity, in opinions liberty, and in all things love.


JESUS IS THE CHRIST
We Believe that Jesus is the Christ the Son of the Living God. We believe that Jesus was born of the virgin Mary and was tempted in all ways as we are, yet was without sin.


THE HOLY SPIRIT EMPOWERS CHRISTIANS
We believe that the Holy Spirit is the Third Person of the Godhead (Trinity). The Holy Spirit dwells with a person when they become a Christian and empowers the believer for works of service and sanctification. The Holy Spirit is our Helper in our walk of faith. The Spirit gives gifts to all believers for the purpose of mutual encouragement and edification for the growth of the Body of Christ.


EVERYONE SINS
We believe that mankind is evil from its youth, and that at an early age in a person’s life he or she will sin against God. We believe that all sinners are bound to hell without faith in Christ. We believe that man, who was created in the image of God, became depraved through sin. Such a fallen nature is seen in every sinner. We believe in a literal hell which is called the lake of fire that burns forever.


WE ARE SAVED BY GRACE
We believe that we are saved by the grace of God through faith in Jesus Christ. Grace is God’s unmerited favor towards the sinner. Faith is the total trust in Jesus Christ, and His death, burial, and resurrection. Good works are the natural outcome of a dynamic faith.


THE CHURCH
We believe the mission of the local church is to seek and save all who are lost in sin and to make disciples of those who have accepted salvation through the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ. We believe 'the Church' is the global Body of Christ and consists of the people who, throughout time, have accepted God's offer of redemption (regardless of religious denomination) through the sacrificial death of His son Jesus Christ. (Ephesians 1:22; Ephesians 2:19-22; Hebrews 12:23; John 17:11; John 17:20-23)

BAPTISM
We believe that it should be the desire of every believer to be baptized in water as a showing of their decision to follow Christ. We believe it is a next step in your faith journey.


JESUS IS COMING BACK
We believe in a literal, second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. Such a return will be a sudden, glorious, spectacular coming of Christ for His Church. God will judge all unbelievers at the white judgement throne with the result of their being cast into eternal punishment. All believers shall be judged and rewarded according to their works, yet all shall enter eternal life in heaven. Jesus is Coming Back!
