What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

Core Beliefs

  • We believe in the verbal inspiration, authority, infallibility, and inerrancy of the Holy Scriptures as set forth in the original writings of the Old and New Testaments (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:19-21).
  • We believe there is one God who is infinitely perfect, the Creator, Preserver, and Governor of all things. We further believe that the Godhead exists eternally in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, and that these three are one God (Matthew 28:19-20; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Colossians 1:12-17).
  • We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal and pre-existent Son of God, that He took upon Himself our form, having been begotten of the Holy Ghost and born of the Virgin Mary; that He perfectly obeyed the law, died on the Cross for our offenses, and rose for our justification; that He ascended to the right hand of God, where He ever lives as our High Priest, to intercede for and save “All that come unto God by Him.” We further believe and look for that blessed hope, the Second Coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. This blessed hope is indeed a mighty spiritual force leading us to lives of holiness, watchfulness and especially to earnestness and faithfulness in helping to send the gospel as a witness to all people (Matthew 24:14; John 14:1-3; Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Titus 2:12-13; Hebrews 9:28).
  • We believe that because of the fall no man can see or enter the Kingdom of God, unless first born of the Holy Spirit, who is sent forth to carry forward the work of salvation in the hearts of men (John 3:1-8; Titus 3:5).
  • We believe in the total ruin and depravity of man by nature through the fall. We believe that the attitude either of reconciliation or enmity toward God is eternally fixed at death, that the saints of all ages will be forever with the Lord, and that they will be joint heirs with Him as their Redeemer in His inheritance. We believe in the eternal salvation of all who believe in Jesus Christ and who receive Him by faith as their personal Savior, and in the eternal punishment of all who reject Jesus Christ (Genesis 6:5; Psalm 14:1-3; Romans 5:12).
  • The church encourages the practice of Baptism upon profession of faith, believing this to be the teaching of the New Testament (Matthew 28:10, 19; Acts 2:38; 8:12).
  • We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is the only Head of the Church (Ephesians 1:22-23).
  • We believe that the Holy Bible is a sufficient rule of faith and practice (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
  • We believe that character which demonstrates faith in Jesus Christ is a sufficient test of fellowship and of church membership (Matthew 7:21; John 1:12; John 3:15).
  • We believe the ordinance of the Lord’s Supper was instituted by the Lord Jesus Christ and is to be observed in His Church in continuous remembrance of Him (1 Corinthians 10:16-17; 11:23-26).
  • We encourage all Christian parents to present their children in dedication to the Lord that they may be made the subject of united and solemn prayer. The parents take vows to give their children Christian training and to live a Christian example before them so that at an early age they may receive Jesus Christ as their personal Savior (1 Samuel 1:21-28; Mark 10:13-16; Luke 2:25-30; 18:15-16).
  • We believe that private judgment and the liberty of conscience is a right and privilege that should be granted to and exercised by all (Matthew 5:19; Galatians 3:13).
