Our Beliefs

That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord,"and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.
 

 

We believe all Scripture, both Old and the New Testaments, was given by Inspiration of God as the writers were moved by the Holy Spirit to write the very words of God, and that these Scriptures are the only rule of faith and practice. (2 Timothy 3 16; 2 Peter 1:20-21)

We believe in the one true God who has revealed Himself as existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; distinguishable but indivisible. (Matthew 28:19; Luke 3:21-22)

We believe the human race was originally created by God in His image, until sin entered by disobedience and rebellion and left humanity totally incapable of saving itself. (Romans 5:12; Genesis 1:27)

We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, both very God and very man. (Luke 1:26-35; John 1:1, 14,18; Isaiah 7:14: Isaiah 9:6)

We believe that water baptism is the obedient response to the command of the Lord. (Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:38; Acts 19:1-6)

We believe the church is the body of Christ and that Christ gave to the church apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers. (Ephesians 4:11-13)

We believe in the resurrection of the dead, external judgement, and life everlasting. (John 3:16; 5:24-21; Mark 9:43-48; 2 Thessalonians 1:9; Revelation 20:11-15)
