What We Believe…
…about the Bible
We believe the Bible to be the only inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God, written by human authors under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. We further believe that all scripture is given by inspiration of God, therefore, both the old and new testaments are relevant and beneficial for Christian living today.
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three Persons who are co-equals: the Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Spirit is God.
…about Jesus Christ
We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ; in His virgin birth; in His sinless life; in His miracles; in His substitutionary and atoning death through His shed blood; in His bodily resurrection; in His ascension to the right hand of the Father; and in His personal return in power and glory.
…about the Holy Spirit
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by Whose indwelling, the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. We further believe His power and gifts are available to believers today.
We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is essential, and that repentance from sin and acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior is the only way to come into a relationship with God.
…about Eternal Life
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost: they that are saved unto the resurrection of eternal life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of eternal damnation.
…about Baptism and the Lord’s Supper
We believe it is important to uphold the Scriptural practices of the early church. Therefore, we hold to the practice of water baptism by immersion and the regular taking of the Lord’s Supper. We do not believe that either of these practices is necessary for salvation, but that they serve as a demonstration of our living faith in Jesus Christ.
