Our Core BeliefsPutting Christ First
We believe…in one God, Creator and Ruler of all things, eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit. The three are co-equal and are one God.
About Jesus the Christ
We believe…in the deity of Jesus Christ, God’s one and only Son; His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit; His virgin birth; His sinless human life; His perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross; His bodily resurrection; His ascension to the right hand of the Father; and His imminent return to reign as King of kings and Lord of lords.
About the Holy Spirit
We believe…in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit living in every redeemed child of God from the moment of salvation. We believe…the Holy Spirit empowers us for living, understanding spiritual truths, guiding us in doing what is right, and giving every believer God-given ability for service.
About the Bible
We believe…the Bible is God’s Word to us. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit and without error. It is the complete revelation of God’s will for salvation and the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living.
We believe…our souls were created to live forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and Hell are very real realms of eternal existence.
We believe…salvation is a gift of God found only in the Lord Jesus Christ. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness… can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. We believe immersion is the central event by which we demonstrate our trust, participate in the death, burial, and resurrection with Christ, and contact His saving power. When we turn to Jesus in obedient faith and are united with Christ through a new birth, we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment a person receives Jesus Christ into his life. Salvation is maintained by our cooperating with the transformational power of the grace of God. God gives man eternal life through Jesus Christ. Our salvation is secure… if we do not leave the position of grace found only in Christ.
We believe…marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in a covenant commitment for life. It is a gift from God. He made them male and female and the two become one in marriage. The husband and wife are of equal worth before God since both are created in God’s image (Matthew 19:4-6). The Bible sets forth specific roles for husbands, wives, fathers, mothers and children (Ephesians 5:21-6:4). It is our conviction to uphold the dignity of each individual as we embrace the unchanging and longstanding principles of scriptural truth.
