STATEMENT OF FAITH


  1. We believe in God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit and that they are distinct personalities with distinct roles, but one God. And that One God is the Creator of the universe.
  2. We believe the Bible is the divinely inspired Word of God in its entirety and that it does not contradict itself. It is our guide.
  3. We believe Jesus Christ is the Messiah, the Savior, the Son of God who was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on a cross, and was raised from the grave. He will return as our victorious Lord.
  4. We believe our salvation comes only through Jesus Christ and cannot be earned. It is a gift of God.
  5. We believe the church, as the body of Christ, is the extension of Jesus Christ’s character, attitude, behavior, and mission in our world today.
  6. We believe faith in Jesus requires repentance, confession of that faith before witnesses, and obedience to His Word. Baptism by immersion demonstrates our faith and obedience while it depicts our union with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection.
  7. We believe man was created in the image of God and that He gives gifts to both men and women through the Holy Spirit for the benefit of the church’s ministry.
  8. We believe everyone who accepts Christ has the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit who acts as a Comforter, Guide, and Advocate.
  9. We believe marriage has been established by God. The Bible defines “marriage” as the exclusive covenantal union of one man and one woman in which such a union is a lifetime commitment. A civil government’s sanction of a union may be recognized as a legitimate marriage by the church only to the extent that it is consistent with the definition of “marriage” found in God’s Word.
  10. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost: they that are saved unto eternal life; they that are lost unto an eternity in hell.
  11. We believe in the Spiritual unity of all who believe in our Lord Jesus Christ.
“For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ. For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—Jews or Greeks, slaves or free—and all were made to drink of one Spirit.” —1 Corinthians 12:12-13
