Our Beliefs

Our Mission

Our mission is to bring people to Jesus and help them become fully devoted followers who demonstrate God's love through service. We believe in the one true God existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We believe in the Bible as the only authoritative, infallible, and inherent word of God. We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, his virgin birth, his sinless life, his teachings, and miracles, his crucifixion, resurrection, and ascension. We believe in the Holy Spirit as the indwelling presence of God received by believers upon baptism. We believe in salvation as the free gift of God's grace.

Who We Are

We are a New Testament church. We value freedom in Christ and enjoy self-government with no denominational affiliation. We use the Bible as our only rule of faith and practice.

In essential matters, unity.
(1 Corinthians 1:10; Ephesians 4:4-7).

In matters of opinion, liberty.
(Romans 14:13-20).

In all things, love.
(Colossians 3:12-14).

Our Core Beliefs

- There is one invisible, eternal God who is both loving and just (Exodus 34:6; Deuteronomy 6:4).

- God has revealed himself in the persons of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Mark 1:9-11)

- Jesus is the Christ, God in the flesh (John 1:1,14)

- The gift of the Holy Spirit is received at baptism and dwells in believers as a seal and pledge of God's gift of salvation (Acts 2:38; Ephesians 1:14-15).

- The Bible is God's work. It is complete. As originally given by the Holy Spirit, it is without error (2 Timothy 3:16-17: 2 Peter 1:20-21; Revelation 22: 18-19).

- Man is created in the image of God. Because of personal sin, people have marred that image. Without accepting God's gracious offer of forgiveness, people are under penalty of eternal punishment (Genesis 1:26-27; Romans 3:23, 6:23).

-  People cannot earn salvation. It was earned by Jesus' death on the cross and His resurrection from the dead (Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 3:24-26).

- Being born again begins with faith in Jesus Christ. It also includes repentance from sin, a public confession that Jesus is Lord, and culminates in immersion in water for the forgiveness of sins (John 3:3-5; Acts 16:29-34; 22:16; Romans 6:3-4).

- The Church is comprised of all who are born again (1 Corinthians 12:13; Colossians 1:18).

- The confident hope of all who have been born again is to live forever with God in heaven (Romans 5:8-10:1 Peter 1:3-5, 1 John 5:10-13).
