What We Believe
God In Three Persons
The one true God has revealed himself as being Jesus Christ, the eternally self-existent Creator of heaven and earth and the Redeemer of all mankind.
The Lord Jesus Christ
The Lord Jesus Christ is the Son of God as revealed in the Scriptures by His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, death on the cross, bodily resurrection from the dead and His position at the right hand of God.
The Creation & Fall of Man
Man was created of God; good and upright. However, man willfully sinned and thereby was subjected not only to physical death but also to spiritual death, which is separation from God.
Man’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
The ordinance of baptism by immersion in water is commanded of all who repent and believe on Christ as Savior. It represents having died with Christ and being raised with Him to walk in newness of life.
The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit came to convict the world of sin and empower all who believe in Christ. The Holy Spirit dwells in every believer and is a helper, teacher, and guide. The Holy Spirit exists today and we exercise all biblical gifts of the Spirit.
The Lord’s Supper is a memorial of Christ’s suffering and death and a prophecy of His second coming. It is commanded of all believers “until he comes.”
Sanctification is an act of separation from that which is evil, and of dedication unto God. It is both an instantaneous act at conversion, but also an on-going process for the believer.
The Church’s Mission
The Church is the body of Christ with a divinely called ministry. Its purpose is to evangelize the world, worship God and encourage believers to grow in the likeness of Christ.
Deliverance from sickness is provided for in the Atonement and is the privilege of all believers.
Christ’s Second Coming
The blessed hope of the Church is Christ’s return from heaven to catch up the Christians who have died, together with those who are alive, to be with Him forever.
End Time Events
Christ will return with His saints to establish a one thousand year reign of peace. After this will come the final judgment of the wicked, and then new heaven and a new earth.
