WHAT WE BELIEVE

 

  • We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God.  It is accurate, authoritative, and applicable to our everyday lives.  

 

  • We believe that God is eternal and that He revealed Himself as one God existing in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  

 

  • We believe that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives.  

 

  • We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man and is the only One who can reconcile us to God. He lived a sinless life, died on the cross in our place, rose again to life, and ascended to heaven.   

 

  • We believe that we receive salvation, the forgiveness of our sins and reconciliation to God, by grace through faith in Jesus.  

 

  • We believe that Jesus established and is building His Church.  God’s plan is that all believers regularly meet together for worship, fellowship, service, and instruction in the Word of God.  

 

  • We believe in water baptism for every believer.   

 

  • We believe that the baptism of the Holy Spirit is available to all believers.  The Holy Spirit enables us to use spiritual gifts as enumerated in I Corinthians 12-14 and as manifested in the Early Church.  

 

  • We believe that God has a plan and purpose for each of our lives and that He enables us by His grace to grow in love, maturity, and relationship with Him.  

 

  • We believe that each person will exist eternally.  Whether we spend eternity with God or separated from Him is determined by our response to the grace and salvation of Jesus.   

 

  • We believe that Jesus will come back again for the Church.
