What We Believe 




​One true and living God, eternally existing and revealed to us as the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ, God incarnate), and the Holy Spirit (Mt. 28:19; I Jn. 1:1-4).    
The deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, substitutionary death for our sins, bodily resurrection, ascension unto God, and imminent return in power and glory (Matt. 1:21-25; Isa. 53:5; Matt. 28:5-6; Acts 1:9; John 14:3).
The Bible is the inspired and complete revelation of God's will for man. It is in the Bible that God reveals His plan of salvation (through the grace of Jesus Christ), as well as His will for our daily lives (II Tim. 3:16-17; I Peter 1:23-25; Heb. 4:12).    




  • People are saved solely through faith in God's grace, as displayed in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.    
  • Salvation is received by believing in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead and by confessing with your mouth, Jesus as your Lord (Rom. 3:24, 10:8-10).
  •  The inward evidence of salvation, to the believer, is the direct witness of the Spirit (Rom. 8:16). The outward evidence to all men is a life of true holiness and love (I Jn. 3:23; Jn. 13:35).
  •  Salvation is by faith in Jesus Christ and not by human works. However, our works are evidence of our faith and will determine our rewards in eternity (Rom. 10:9-10, 14:10-12; II Cor. 5:10; Eph. 2:8-9; Titus 3:5-7; James 2:18).
Water baptism is a public declaration to the world that a believer has died with Christ and has risen with Him to walk a life of holiness and love (Mt. 28:19; Acts 10:47-48; Rom. 6:4).    
  • By the inward witness of salvation to the believer (Romans 8:16).
  • By daily guidance and the growth of Christ-like character (John 16:13; Galatians 5:22-23).
  • By the baptism of the Holy Spirit, an experience distinct from and subsequent to the new birth, evidenced initially by speaking with other tongues, and subsequently by the manifestation of spiritual power in public testimony and service (Acts 1:8, 2:4, 10:44-46, 19:2,6). All believers are entitled to, and should ardently expect and earnestly seek, this promise of the Father (Acts 2:38-39).


The unity of all true believers as members of the universal Church (the Body of Christ) regardless of denominational affiliation (Eph. 1:22, 2:19-22; Heb. 12:23).    




The celebration of the Lord's Supper as a remembrance of Jesus (I Cor. 11:24-30).
People are created in God's image. By voluntary transgression, man fell and his only hope of redemption is through God's Son, Jesus Christ (Gen. 1:26-31, 3:1-7; Rom. 5:12-21).    
Jesus Christ is coming again to gather His saints unto Himself (I Cor. 15:51-52; I Thess. 4:16-17; II Thess. 2:1). Those who have not accepted the redemptive work of Jesus Christ will suffer eternal separation from Him.
