We believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old Testament and New Testament are the inspired, inerrant, and infallible Word of God. God’s Word is the final authority for faith and life.
We believe there is only one God. He reveals Himself in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
a. God the Father is an eternal being, the first person of the Trinity, who is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He is all powerful, all knowing, all loving, and all wise.
b. Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, was fully God and fully man, lived a sinless life, ministered by the power of the Holy Spirit, offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for sin by dying on a cross, bodily rose from the dead, ascended to heaven, and is returning soon.
c. The Holy Spirit is an eternal being, convicting unbelievers of their need of salvation and believers to confess sin, and is the Comforter and Guide who lives in every believer.
We believe that man is a unique creation of God, made in His image, and through the sin of the first man, Adam, mankind fell so that all men are sinners and need salvation.
We believe salvation is a gift and is the forgiveness of sins through repentance by grace alone, through faith alone, in Jesus Christ alone.
We believe in the literal, physical return of Jesus to judge the living and the dead.
We believe that every person who is truly saved is eternally secure in the Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe people were created to exist eternally. People who die with their sins forgiven through Christ spend eternity in Heaven and those who die in their sins without Christ spend eternity in Hell. Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence.
We believe the church of the Lord Jesus Christ is a local body of baptized believers on mission to make disciples and grow God’s Kingdom.
We believe the Lord’s Supper and believer’s baptism are the two ordinances of the church.
The Lord’s Supper is a symbolic act of the church whereby we remember with grateful hearts the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ.
Believer’s water baptism is an act of obedience to the command of Christ and is by immersion after salvation.
