Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible is the only inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God.
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus 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.
We believe that all people are guilty of sin and in need of salvation; that salvation is available only through the vicarious and atoning death of Jesus Christ, and that people must believe in Him, accepting Him as Savior and Lord to obtain salvation.
We believe that salvation is all by grace, not the result of any human efforts.
We believe in the presence and power of the Holy Spirit in the work of bringing people to salvation and by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life and participate effectively in the Great Commission.
We believe in the one holy universal church, which is the Body of Christ to which all true believers belong, and in its mission to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and make disciples of all nations.
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe in the centrality of the local congregation of believers—the local church—as the primary resource for carrying the Good News of the Gospel to those who have not heard.
We believe that at the end of the age, Christ will descend from Heaven and the dead in Christ will be raised bodily and all those living will meet with Him in the air. Those who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior will live with God, in His presence, for all eternity.
Jesus came and told his disciples,
I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age (Matthew 28:18-20, NLT).
