What We Believe

  • We believe in one God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe in God the father Almighty, Creator of all things visible and invisible.
  • We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s one and only Son, our one and only Savior; who was born Jesus of Nazareth, both fully human and fully divine, conceived of the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary; who suffered and was crucified; who died and was buried and who rose again in the body from the dead on the third day; who ascended to Heaven and now sits at the right hand of God; who will return to earth to judge both the living and the dead.
  • We believe in the Holy Spirit, who is an active and operative part of the triune God and indwells every Christian.
  • We believe in the Bible as God’s Holy Word and was written by authors inspired by the Holy Spirit and is without error; we believe it to be the final authority for all matters of faith and practice.
  • We believe the Bible teaches that man, created by God, willfully sinned against God and is consequently lost and without hope apart from Jesus Christ.
  • We believe the Bible teaches that salvation and the forgiveness of sins is achieved only by grace through the blood of Jesus Christ.
  • We believe that the Bible teaches that one receives God’s grace by putting faith in Christ, repenting of sin, confessing Christ, and being immersed into Christ, but that none of these is sufficient in and of itself for the assurance of salvation.
  • We believe in the Church of Jesus Christ, founded on the day of Pentecost and consisting of all Christians everywhere.
  • We believe the Bible teaches that the Elders are to exercise authority over the local congregation.
