What We Believe

Our Beliefs

About the Bible - We believe the Bible is the only inspired, inerrant, authoritative, and sufficient Word of God, consisting of the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments.

About God - We believe there is only one living and true God, creator and supreme ruler of all things in heaven and earth, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

About Jesus - We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal return in power and glory.

About the Spirit - We believe that the Holy Spirit is a divine Person, possessing all the attributes of personality and deity; in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.

About Man - We believe that man was created by God in His own image; that he sinned and thereby incurred physical, spiritual, and eternal death, which is separation from God; that, as a consequence, all human beings are born with a sinful nature and are sinners by choice and therefore under condemnation.

About Salvation - We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential; that a person becomes justified by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

About the Future - We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; those who are saved unto the resurrection of life, and those who are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

About the Church - We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ and His church, in the importance and vital role the local church plays in the lives of all believers.

About the Ordinances - We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ has committed two ordinances to the local church, baptism and the Lord's Supper. We believe that Christian baptism is the immersion of the believer in water in the name of the triune God. We believe that the Lord's Supper was instituted by Christ for commemoration of His death. We believe that these two ordinances should be observed and administered until the return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
