What We Believe
About the Scriptures:
We believe all 66 books of the Old and New Testaments are the inspired Word of God. Men were moved by the Holy Spirit to write the very words of Scripture. Therefore, the Bible as originally given by God is authoritative and without error.
We believe in God who exists in three distinct persons (God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit). We believe Jesus Christ is God the Son who became flesh to reveal God to man and to become the Savior of our fallen world.
We believe that mankind was created in the image of God to have fellowship with Him, but became separated from that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result of sin, we are totally incapable of coming back to a relationship with God by our own efforts.
We believe in complete and eternal salvation by God’s grace alone, received as the gift of God through faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross for the payment of our sins.
About the Christian Life:
We believe every Christian should live for God’s glory and not for himself or herself. By choosing to love God with all that we are, to be obedient to the Scriptures and to follow the leading of the Holy Spirit, every believer should mature in their faith and become more and more like our example, Jesus Christ.
About the Church:
We believe the church is the Body of Christ made up of all those who have received salvation by trusting in the completed work of Christ. The purpose of our church is to glorify God and make Him known to a lost world.
