What we Believe
We believe in one loving God, eternally existing in three persons; Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the divine inspiration and authority of the Bible and it's sufficiency as our only rule of faith and practice.
We believe that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was begotten by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.
We believe man was created in the image of God, but because of sin, incurred both physical and spiritual death, separating all humanity from God.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ was sent from God, and was crucified for the sins of every human being according to the Scriptures, and all those who trust in His shed blood, and have received by Him by faith as their personal Savior, receive forgiveness by His grace and the gift of eternal life.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of our Lord, His ascension into Heaven and His presence there as our Intercessor.
We believe in the personality, presence, and work of the Holy Spirit, our Comforter as the revealer of Jesus Christ during this period in which Christ is absent from the earth, and that signs and wonders and spiritual gifts are relevant for today.
We believe and endorse the symbolic ordinance of Believer's Baptism, or Baptism by our choice by immersion obedience to the command and testimony of Christ; and the ordinance of the Lord's Supper in remembrance of his atoning dest and in anticipation of His coming again.
