What We Believe
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God and inerrant in the original writings. We believe that there is one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His substitutionary and sufficient death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
We believe that we have broken our relationship with God through Adam's sin that passes a sin nature to all mankind, and that man's only hope of redemption is through believing and accepting Jesus Christ, the Son of God, as King of our life and Forgiver of our sins. We believe in and practice the ordinances of water baptism, which identifies us with the new life we have in Christ Jesus, and communion as commanded by our Lord in remembrance of Him.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the unsaved; those that are saved into the resurrection of life with God and those that are unsaved into the resurrection of separation from God.
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
