What We Believe

About God

We believe that there is one God who exists in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

About Jesus

We believe that Jesus is the Son of God, was born of a virgin, was wholly God and wholly man, lived a sinless life, died in our place as a sacrifice for the sins of mankind, was buried, arose bodily from the grave, and ascended into Heaven.

About the Second Coming

We believe that Jesus Christ will literally return to earth.

About the Holy Spirit

We believe that God the Holy Spirit is active in convincing unbelievers of their need for salvation, and is the Comforter and Guide who lives in every believer.

About the Bible

We believe the Bible is the Word of God without any error, the sole authority for life and faith.

About Man

We believe that man is a special creation of God, made in His image, but that through the sin of the first man, Adam, mankind fell so that all men are sinners and need salvation.

About Salvation

We believe that salvation is a gift received through repentance toward God and faith in Jesus Christ. It is by grace alone through faith alone in Jesus alone.

About Eternal Security

We believe that every person who is truly saved is eternally secure in the Lord Jesus Christ.

About Eternity

We believe that those persons who die in their sins without Christ spend eternity in Hell and those persons who die in their sins forgiven through Christ spend eternity in Heaven.

About Baptism

We believe that water baptism is an act of obedience to the command of Christ and is by immersion after salvation.

About the Church

We believe that the church is a local body of baptized believers with the Lord Jesus Christ as the Head.
