What We Believe

What We Believe

Authority of Scripture

We believe the Bible, both the Old and New Testaments, is the inspired Word of God and our final authority in faith and life.


We believe the God of the Bible is the only true God. He is infinite, loving, just, omnipotent, omniscient, and unchanging. He exists eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. 

Jesus Christ

We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin, He was fully God and fully man. His death, burial, and resurrection are the means by which God reconciles the world to Himself.

Holy Spirit

We believe the Holy Spirit is a real person who shares the nature and attributes of God and reveals truth to humanity, transforming and empowering believers to become like Christ.


We believe sin is disobedience to God and failure to live according to His will. Sin has separated all of mankind from God and leads to physical death.


We believe every person is lost in his rebellion and unable to change his destiny before God. However, God has made a way of salvation through Jesus Christ. A person comes into a right relationship with God by His grace, through faith in Jesus Christ alone.

The Church

We believe the Church is a spiritual body which consists of believers in Christ. Local congregations of believers come together to live out their faith through worship, spiritual formation, and service. 


We believe there are two Biblical ordinances. Baptism by immersion is a public expression to the world of a believer’s personal faith in Jesus Christ. The Lord’s Supper is a communal meal which reinforces our faith in Jesus Christ for His atoning work and our assurance of His return.

Return of Jesus Christ & Eternity

We believe in the second coming of Jesus Christ. Upon His return, those believers who place their faith in Him will exist eternally with God in righteousness and peace. Those who have continued in unrepentance and unbelief will exist eternally separated from God.
