What we Believe
The Bible is the inspired Word of God
We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God. It is accurate, authoritative, and applicable to our everyday lives.
2 Tim 3:15-17
Jesus is building his Church
We believe that Jesus established and is building his Church. God’s plan is that all believers regularly meet together for worship, fellowship, service, and instruction in the Word of God. The Church is not a location or building we attend. The church is the body of Christ, the people.
Sin has separated us from God
We believe that all people were created in the image of God to have fellowship with him, but became alienated in that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, people are incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through their own efforts.
Jesus reconciles us to God
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man and is the only one who can reconcile us to God. He lived a sinless life, died
on the cross in our place, rose again to life, and ascended to heaven.
2 Corinthians 5:21
We are saved by grace
We believe that we receive salvation, the forgiveness of our sins and reconciliation to God, by grace through faith in Jesus.
God is eternal and three-in-one
We believe that God is eternal and that he revealed himself as one God existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Baptism is for every believer
We believe in water baptism for every believer. By doing this they declare to the world that they have died with Christ and have been raised with Him to walk in newness of life.
We believe that the baptism of the Holy Spirit is available to all believers. The Holy Spirit enables us to use spiritual gifts as enumerated in I Corinthians 12-14 and as manifested in the Early Church.
Our lives have purpose
We believe that God has a plan and purpose for each of our lives and that he enables us by his grace to grow in love, maturity, and relationship with him.
1 Peter 2:9
We will exist eternally
We believe that each person will exist eternally. Whether we spend eternity with God or separated from him is determined by our response to the grace and salvation of Jesus.
Jesus will return
We believe that Jesus will come back again for the Church.
