What We Believe
We believe that the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God and that men of God were moved by the Holy Spirit to write the very words of Scripture. Psalm 119:105; 2 Tim. 3:16-17
The Person of God
We believe the only true and living God is a triune God, eternally existing in three persons; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Gen 1:26; John 1:1-3; Matt. 28:19; 2 Cor. 13:14
We believe that God the Father is the first person of the Trinity and is eternal, unchanging, all-powerful, all-knowing, all-wise, all-loving, completely just and perfectly holy. Gen. 1:1, Eph. 4:6, Acts 17:24-25
We believe the eternal Son of God is Jesus Christ our Lord. He became flesh in the virgin birth and that He is Divine and lived a sinless life. He is fully God and fully man. He offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. John 6:67-69; Mark 8:29; Col. 1:15-18; Hebrews 1:1-3
We believe the Holy Spirit is the third part of the Trinity. The Holy Spirit is a person, He inspired the writing of the Bible and He also illumines it for us today. We are to live as a temple of the Holy Spirit, as a person dependent on Him, desperate for God the Spirit to show up and make a difference. John 14:16-17; 1 Cor. 2:10-16; 1 Cor. 3:16
We believe each person is capable of receiving, comprehending and responding to God's revelation of himself in Christ. Gal 2:20; 2 Peter 1:20-21
We believe the clear command of the scriptures is obedience to God when challenged by adherence to the powers of this world. Acts 5:29; Matt. 22:15-22
We believe in the symbol of water baptism by immersion as aligning our lives with the triune God in obedience to the command of Christ. Matt. 28:19-20; Mark 16:16; Acts 2:41.
We believe in the partaking of communion among believer. Acts 2:42, 1 Cor. 11:23-26.
We believe, under the Lordship of Jesus Christ, each church is sovereign in its own affairs and balanced by a strong connection of interdependence in fellowship and support with other bible teaching/preaching churches. Eph. 1:22-23; 2:19-22.
We believe a person is saved by faith alone, acting on the grace of God as expressed in relationship with Jesus Christ. Rom. 1:17; Eph. 2:8-9; John 3:16
We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers for which Jesus so earnestly prayed. John 17:11
We believe in Missions locally and around the world in obedience to Christ's command. Matt. 28:18-20; Acts 1:8
We believe as the Bible states that the unity of marriage is between one man and one woman. Eph. 5:31, Gen. 2:23-24.
"Jesus meets each of us at the cross of calvary, wherever we may be at in our journey of our life, and He promises to never leave us, nor forsake us."
