What we Believe


    The Bible is the divinely inspired Word of GOD, without error in the original autographs and our final authority in all matters of faith and life.
     God exists eternally as three persons: The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal in attributes and equally worthy of all worship
     Jesus Christ is God's only Son. As both true God and true human being, He was born of a virgin, crucified as a sacrifice for humanity's sins, arose bodily from the dead, and ascended into heaven. Jesus Christ is the only Savior through whom fallen humanity can find salvation. He will one day return to earth to rule and reign in righteousness.
    Men and women are created in God's image; however, because of the entrance of sin into the world, they are lost and in need of salvation.
    Salvation is made possible by the death of Christ and comes only through personal faith in Him. This salvation is by grace alone and not by any good works.
    The Holy Spirit baptizes people into the body of Christ at salvation, gives spiritual gifts to each believer as He wills and seals believers for the day of redemption.
    The Church is the living body of Christ on earth, composed of all who have received Jesus Christ as Savior. Jesus commanded His Church to observe the two ordinances of water baptism and the Lord's Supper.
