What We Believe
About the Bible
We believe the Bible is the Word of God, divinely inspired; it contains no errors in the original manuscripts and is preserved by God for us; it is authoritative for this church and each of us for every age.
About the Holy Spirit
We believe the Holy Spirit the Third Person of the Trinity, is God the Spirit, and has all the divine characteristics of God. He indwells all believers, baptizes and seals them at the moment of salvation. He fills them in response to confession of sin and surrender to Him.
The church has two ordinances: Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Baptism symbolizes the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ and the new life we have in Him. The Lord’s Supper is a reminder of Christ’s death and anticipates His Second Coming.
We believe God exists eternally in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Spirit. These three are one God. We believe God created the universe by His Power and Word, and God is all-knowing, all-powerful, and ever present.
We believe Jesus, through His death on the cross, provided salvation for all. However to receive salvation one must repent of sin and trust Jesus Christ alone. The true believer is eternally secure and cannot lose their salvation. They may, however, lose their joy by sin and bring the loving discipline of the Father upon themselves.
All who have received Christ will at death depart to be with Christ in their spirits and at Christ’s return, receive a new body, which will be like His glorious body.
About Jesus Christ
We believe Jesus Christ was sent by God the Father into the world to save sinners, He is the Second Person of the Trinity, and He is God the Son.
We believe Jesus Christ was virgin born, sinless in life, and mighty in words and deeds.
We believe Jesus was both God and man, He was crucified for our sins, and He was bodily raised from the dead. He then ascended to His Father’s side where He is head of the church and intercedes for believers. We believe Jesus Christ is coming again personally, visibly, and bodily to reign as Lord
About the Church
We believe a New Testament church is a local body of believers who commit to live transformed and transforming lives together to worship Jesus Christ, edify the believers, evangelize the lost, and minister to others.
