WHAT WE BELIEVE

About God

There is one God, the Creator and Ruler of the universe, who has eternally existed in three persons:  Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

About Humanity

All people are made in the image of God and are the supreme object of His creation.  We have been alienated from our relationship with God as a result of sinful disobedience.  We are unable to regain our right relationship with God through our own human efforts. 

About the Church

The Church is the body of Christ of which Jesus is the Head.  Each of us who have trusted by faith the finished work of Christ are the Church. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by loving Him and by making Him known to the lost world.

About Jesus

Jesus is the Son of God and is coequal with the Father and Holy Spirit.  He was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, and lived a sinless life. 

About Salvation

It is God’s desire that all humanity receive the salvation that was provided for by the shed blood of Jesus Christ.  He offers salvation freely to all who place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ.

About Baptism

Once we have placed our trust in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, baptism is how we publicly declare our new life in Christ.  Baptism is symbolic of the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus.  It is also a step of obedience to God’s commands and allows to follow the example of Jesus, who submitted himself to baptized to “fullfill all righteousness.”

About the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is coequal with the Father and Jesus.  He is Counselor, Advocate, Comforter, Intercessor, and makes His home within every believer at the moment we place our faith in Jesus Christ.

About the Bible

The Bible was written by human authors who were divinely guided by The Holy Spirit.  Because it is inspired by God, we believe it is truth without error and is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living.

About Eternity

We were created to exist forever.  To be eternally separated from God is hell.  To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life in Heaven. Heaven and hell are real places of eternal existence.
