What We Believe

We believe the Holy Bible as the inspired Word of God, without any error, the all-sufficient authority in matters of faith, doctrine and Christian living.

We believe in the Holy Trinity which consists of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

We believe in the virgin birth of Jesus Christ and that He is true God and man.  He died on the cross for our sins. He rose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven where he sits at the right hand of the Father and is now our High Priest and Advocate.

We believe that man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and therefore became lost. Only through regeneration by the work of the Holy Spirit can man’s salvation and spiritual life be ordained.

We believe that eternal salvation is a free gift of God, entirely apart from man’s works, and is possessed by any and all who have faith in and receive Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior.

We believe that baptism is by the immersion and the Lord’s Supper is a memorial to His suffering and death on the cross.  These are ordinances to be observed by the church in its present age.  They are however, not to be regarded as means for man’s salvation.  We also believe in the baptism in the Holy Spirit and the operation of the Gifts of the Spirit as spoken of in First Corinthians Chapter Twelve.

We believe in the personal, bodily, imminent, and glorious return of Jesus Christ and that His Second Coming inspires believers for dynamic and zealous life and service for Him while waiting for His return.

We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead, the everlasting blessedness of the saved in heaven and the everlasting punishment and separation from God of the unsaved in hell.

We believe in the autonomy of the local church. The church shall manage its own affairs and shall not be subject to any other religious body or organization.
