What We Believe

About God

There is one living and true God who has and will forever exist in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit (the Trinity).

God our Father is great and He is good. He is our all-knowing, all-powerful, ever-present Creator and is holy, perfect in every way. He is loving, faithful and just. God the Father adopts as His own all those who come to Him through Jesus Christ. He hears and answers prayer.

Jesus Christ, the Son of God is the Savior of the world. Eternally together with His Father and the Holy Spirit, all things have been created by Him and for Him. Through the incarnation, Jesus became man and was born of the virgin Mary. He lived a perfect, sinless life. He gave His life and shed His blood as a sacrifice for our sins. He rose from the dead and is ascended to the right hand of the Father until He comes again to judge the living and the dead.

The Holy Spirit is God and dwells in every believer. He was poured out upon the church to convict of sin, lead us into the truth, glorify Jesus, and testify of His greatness. The Spirit gives us spiritual gifts and makes us more like Christ. Jesus baptizes us in the Holy Spirit to empower us to be His witnesses and to live a holy life.

About Salvation

Salvation is by grace through faith.  It is a gift from God, not a result of good works or human effort.  Because all men have sinned and are separated from God and face eternity in Hell, Jesus Christ alone can provide salvation through His cross and resurrection.  Each person who by faith repents of their sin and receives Christ as personal Savior is justified by the blood of Jesus; they are born again of the Holy Spirit and receive eternal life in heaven.

About The Bible

The Bible is God’s Word and the final authority for all faith and practice. The Scriptures are fully inspired by the Holy Spirit, infallible, and without error. Through His Word, God reveals Himself and His plan of redemption for man through Jesus Christ. It cannot be added to, subtracted from, or superseded in any regard.

About The Church

The Church is a community of believers unified by faith in Christ.  The church is the body of Christ, His building, His bride, His family, and His flock.  The church is commissioned to carry out Jesus’ mission on earth.
