Our Beliefs


We believe the Bible, consisting of the Old & New Testaments, is the verbally inspired Word of God, the final authority for faith and life. It is inerrant in the original writings and infallible.(2 Tim. 3:16-17; 2 Pet. 1:20-21; Matt. 5:18; John 16:12-13; Tit. 1:2)


We believe in one triune God, whose name is Yahweh, the creator, ruler and sustainer of heaven and earth. He exists eternally in three persons- Father, Son and Holy Spirit; each with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence or being. (Deut. 6:4; Matt. 3:16-17; 28:19; 2 Cor. 13:14)


a. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man, without ceasing to be God, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful men. (John1:1-2,14; Luke 1:35; Gal. 4:4-5; Phil. 2:6-8) 

We believe that Christ died on the cross as a representative, vicarious, substitutionary sacrifice for our sins, and that the sufficiency of this atoning sacrifice to accomplish the redemption and justification of all who trust in Him is assured by his literal, physical resurrection from the dead. (1 Cor. 15:3-8; Rom. 3:24-25; 4:25; Eph. 1:7; Heb. 2:9; 1 Pet. 1:3-5; 2:24)
We believe Christ ascended to heaven, and is now exalted as Lord of all at the right hand of God, where He is the head of the church and our intercessor and advocate as High Priest. At the time of the Father’s choosing, Christ is coming again to the earth to personally, bodily, and visibly set up his millennial kingdom.  (Acts 1:1,9-10; Heb. 9:24; 7:25; Rom. 8:34; 1 John 2:1-2; Matt. 24:42; 1 Thess. 4:16-17; Rev. 20:6b)


We believe the Holy Spirit is a person who convicts the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgment; and that He is the supernatural agent in regeneration, baptizing all believers into the body of Christ, indwelling and sealing them unto the day of redemption. He sovereignly bestows spiritual gifts to each believer for the building up of the body. These gifts always operate in harmony with the Scriptures and should never be used in violation of Biblical parameters. The Holy Spirit gives spiritual understanding and guidance into all truth. He provides assurance of adoption, fills believers with the fruit of righteousness and provides the power to live as children of God. He helps us to pray. (John 16:8-11,13; Tit. 3:5; 1 Cor. 12:4-7,12-14; 1 Cor. 14:40; 2 Cor. 3:6; Rom. 8:9,15; Eph. 1:13-14; 1 Cor. 12:4-7; 1 Pet. 4:10; 1 John 2:20,27; Eph. 5:18; Gal. 5:22-23)


We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but that sin and death came through Adam and spread to all men because all sinned. Mankind inherited a sinful nature and became alienated from God, worthy of His just condemnation. Therefore, mankind is totally depraved and of himself, utterly unable to remedy his lost condition. (Gen. 1:26-27; Rom. 3:23; 5:12; Eph. 2:1-3)


a. We believe that salvation is the gift of God brought to man by grace and received by repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose precious blood was shed on Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins. The believer’s good works are not the grounds but the result of salvation in Christ Jesus. (Eph. 1:7; 2:8-10; John 1:12-13; 1 Pet. 1:18-19) 

We believe that all the redeemed, once saved, are kept by God’s power and are thus secure in Christ forever. Sin interrupts the joy of the believer’s fellowship with God. Believers should expect to interact with God as their heavenly Father who disciplines those he loves.(John 6:37-40; 10:27-30; Rom. 8:1,38-39; 1 Cor. 1:4-8; 1 Pet. 1:5; Phil. 3:12-16)


We believe there is one church universal, which is comprised of those whose faith is in Christ alone for salvation. The local church is seen clearly in a group of gathered believers who are seeking to obey all that the scriptures command. The local church gathers together for worship, fellowship, service to one another, and outreach to the world. The ordinances of the church are believer’s baptism and the Lord’s Supper. The offices of human leadership within the church are elders and deacons. (Acts 1:8; 2:42-47; Matt. 28:18-20; Luke 22:19-20; Heb. 10:24-25; Gal. 6:10; 1 Tim. 3:1-13; 1 Pet. 5:1-4)


We believe in the bodily resurrection of all men, the saved to eternal life, and the unsaved to judgment and everlasting punishment. (Matt. 25:46; John 5:28-29; 11:25-26; Rev. 20:5-6,12-13)
