What We Believe
We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God (2 Peter 1:21; Psalm 19:7-11) without error in the original manuscripts and is our guide for daily living (2 Timothy 3:16).
We believe the One Living and True God (Deuteronomy 6:4; 1 Corinthians 8:4-6) exists eternally in three persons. Father, Son, and Holy Spirit ( Genesis1:26; Matthew 28:18-20).
We believe that Jesus Christ is fully God (Hebrews 1:1-4; 1John 5:20) and fully man (Matthew 1:20) and that He died on the cross for our sins (John 1:29) and rose on the third day (1Corinthians 15:3-5; John 1:1-3).
We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity (2 Corinthians 13:14) and that He empowers us for daily living (Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 2:12-13).
We believe that people are created by God in His image (Genesis 1:27) but we have separated ourselves from God (Romans 2:5; 5:12) and need His saving grace (Ephesians 2:8).
We believe that salvation is a gift of God's grace (Ephesians 2:8-9), and we receive this gift of eternal life when we trust Jesus Christ (Romans 4:4-5; 5:1) as our Savior from sin (John 3:16; Acts 4:12).
We believe that the church is the body of Christ (Ephesians 1:22-23; 5:24-30) and that God has called believers to gather together in local church families (1Corinthians 12:12).
We believe that Jesus Christ will come again (Titus 2:13; 1 Thessalonians 1:10; John 14:1-3) and reign eternally (Philippians 2:9-11).
We believe in water baptism by immersion. Water Baptism symbolizes the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. Baptism is a public declaration of acceptance of Jesus as Savior (Acts 2:41; Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 10:47-48; Matthew 3:6; Mark 1:5).
We believe that the Baptism of the Holy Spirit empowers believers to do the work of the ministry with the manifestation of the nine gifts of the Spirit as God wills (Matthew 3:11; Mark 1:8; 1 Corinthians 12:4-11).
We believe that divine healing of the sick is provided through Jesus Christ's death and resurrection (Isaiah 53:1-5; Matthew 8:16-17; James 5:14-16).
We believe in receiving communion to remember Jesus' sacrifice for us and remind us of the new covenant. The elements are symbols of Christ's broken body and shed blood (Matthew 26:26-29; Mark 14:22-25; Luke 22:19-20; 1 Corinthians 11:23-29).
