beliefs

We believe in one God revealed in three persons - the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 5:16 , 45; 6:1, 4, 8, 9; James 1:17 / John 1:1; 14:9 / Genesis 1:2; ; 4:24 14:16 -20; 2 Peter 1:21 ) 


We believe in God the Father Almighty, Creator of all things visible and invisible. (Genesis 1:1; Acts 17:24-28; Hebrews 11:3) 


We believe in Jesus Christ, God's one and only Son, our one and only Savior, (John 1:14; 1 John 4:9 / John 3:16; 2 Peter 3:18) 


Who was born Jesus of Nazareth, both fully human and fully divine, conceived of the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary, (Matthew 21:11; John 19:19 / John 1:14; Romans 5:15-17; Colossians 2:9; 1 John 1:1 / Matthew 1:18; Luke 1:26-38)


Who suffered and was crucified under Pontius Pilate, (Luke 23:1-46)


Who died and was buried, and Who rose again bodily from the dead on the third day, (Luke 23:44 - 24:8; John 20:24-29; 1 Corinthians 15:3-8)


Who ascended into Heaven and now sits at the right hand of the Father, (Luke 22:69; Acts 1:1-9; Colossians 3:1) and


Who will return to earth to judge both the living and the dead. (Matthew 24:36-42; John 14:1-3; Acts 1:10 -11; 10:39 -42; 1 Peter 4:5)


We believe in the Holy Spirit, Who is an active and operative part of the triune God, (John 16:5-15; Acts 1:7-8; Romans 8:26 -27) and


Who indwells every Christian. (1 Corinthians 3:16 ; 6:19 ; 2 Timothy 1:14)


We believe in the Bible and God's Holy Word, Scripture. We believe God inspired the autographs (original writings) of the Scripture and those autographs were consequently without error. (Mark 12:36 ; John 14:26 ; 16:12 -15; Acts 1:16; 1 Corinthians 2:12-13; 2 Timothy 3:14-16; 2 Peter 1:20-21)


We accept the Bible as the final authority for all matters of faith and practice. (Isaiah 40:8; Matthew 5:18 ; 24:35; Romans 15:4; Hebrews 4:12)


We believe the Bible teaches that man, created by God, willfully sinned against God and is consequently lost and without hope apart from Jesus Christ. (Acts 4:12; Romans 3:23)


We believe the Bible teaches that salvation and the forgiveness of sins is achieved only by grace through the blood of Jesus Christ. (Matthew 26:28; Romans 5:9; Ephesians 2:8-9; 1 Peter 1:18-19; 1 John 1:7)


We believe the Bible teaches that one receives God's grace by putting faith in Christ, repenting of sin, confessing Christ, and being immersed into Christ. (Romans 5:1-2 / Luke 24:45-47; Acts 3:19 ; 17:30 ; 2 Peter 3:9 / Matthew 10:32 ; Romans 10:9; Philippians 2:11 ; 1 John 4:15 / Acts 2:38 ; Romans 6:1-7; Galatians 3:27 ; Colossians 2:12 ; 1 Peter 3:21)


We believe in the Church of Jesus Christ, founded on the Day of Pentecost and consisting of all Christians everywhere. (Matthew 16:13-18; Acts 2:14-47)


We believe the Bible teaches that the Elders are to exercise authority over the local congregation. (Acts 20:28; Philippians 1:1; 1 Timothy 3:1-7; Titus 1:5-9; 1 Peter 5:1-4)
