Our Belief

 

THE SCRIPTURES: We believe that the Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired, and is a perfect treasure of heavenly instruction. It has God for its author, salvation for its end, truth without any mixture of error for its matter and reveals the principles by which God will judge us.  The bible is, and shall remain to the end of the world, the true center of Christian union, and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and opinions should be tried.  II Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Psalm 119:11, 89, 105.

GOD: We believe there is only One true, eternally existent God. He exists in three co-equal persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The triune God is the Creator and Sustainer of all things, and is worthy of worship and obedience. -Deuteronomy. 6:4-5; Genesis 1:31, Luke 3:21-22; Matthew 28:18-20, Rev. 4:11.

JESUS CHRIST: We believe that Jesus Christ is God. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed miracles, shed His blood on the cross to pay the debt for our sins, was buried, bodily resurrected, ascended to the right hand of the Father, and will return literally, visibly, and personally in glory and power. -John 1:1-3,14; Matthew 1:18-25; Philippians 2:5-9; Colossians 1:15; 1 Corinthians 15:1-8; Acts 1:11.

HOLY SPIRIT: We believe that the Holy Spirit is God, Co-equal and Co-existent with the Father and the Son. He is the Chief Convictor of sin and the Chief Agent of regeneration and sanctification. The Holy Spirit lives within every believer and empowers every believer to live a godly life. - John 14:16-19; 16:7-15; 1 Corinthians 6:19-20; Romans 8:9,11; Titus 3:5.

SALVATION: We believe salvation is a free gift of God's grace apart from human works, based solely upon Christ's atoning death, received only through faith in the person and finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross and His resurrection from death -Ephesians 2:8-10; 2 Corinthians 5:21.

THE CHURCH: We believe the church is the body of Christ and family of God. It is made up of saved and baptized believers, who regularly join together for worship, fellowship, and ministry. -Matthew 16:18; I Corinthians 12:12-14; Hebrews 10:25.

EVANGELISM: We believe that it is the responsibility and privilege of every Christian to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ and to seek to make growing disciples - Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8.
