Who We Are

What We Believe

  • WE BELIEVE...the Scriptures are the divine, inerrant Word of God, breathed by the Spirit, written through the hands of men, and is still true and applicable to our lives today.
  • WE BELIEVE...there is only One True God, revealed in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (commonly known as the Trinity).
  • WE BELIEVE...in the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ. As God's son, born of the virgin Mary, Jesus was both human and divine.
  • WE BELIEVE...though originally good, Man willingly fell to sin, ushering evil and death, both physical and spiritual, into the world.
  • WE BELIEVE...every person can have restored fellowship with God through Salvation. This comes through faith in Christ Jesus alone.
  • WE BELIEVE...and practice two ordinances—(1) Water baptism by immersion after repenting of one's sins and receiving Christ's gift of salvation, and (2) Holy Communion (the Lord's Supper) as a symbolic remembrance of Christ's suffering and death for our salvation.
  • WE BELIEVE...in the baptism of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit indwells the believer at the point of salvation, and empowers the believer through the Gifts of the Spirit, as outlined in 1 Corinthians 12:4-11.
  • WE BELIEVE...Sanctification initially occurs at salvation and is not only a declaration that a believer is holy, but also a progressive lifelong process of separating from sin as believers continually draw closer to God and become more like Christ.
  • WE BELIEVE...that followers of Christ are responsible for reaching the world with the Good News of Christ’s salvation.
  • WE BELIEVE...that healing and other miracles are alive and active today, predicated upon God’s sovereign will.
  • WE BELIEVE...that the day is coming when Jesus will return to collect His followers to be with Him for eternity.
