What We Believe

We Believe there is only one God -- eternally existent in three Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit -- who is the Creator and Sustainer of the universe. (Matthew 28:19; Isaiah 48:12, 16-17)

We Believe that all 66 books of the Holy Bible (and only the Holy Bible) to be the divinely inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God, profitable for doctrine, rebuke, correction, and instruction in righteousness, able to render the man or woman of God complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:16)

We Believe in both the humanity and deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, atoning death on the cross, and in His bodily resurrection, ascension to the right hand of the Father, and immanent personal return in power and glory. (John 14:9; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4; Acts 1:11)

We Believe that a meaningful and genuine relationship with God is impossible outside of bibical salvation, which is the regeneration by the Holy Spirit that leads to faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, and repentance from sin.
(Titus 3:5; 2 Corinthians 7:10; John 8:24)

We Believe in the bodily resurrection of both the saved and the lost -- the saved unto the resurrection of life and the lost unto the resurrection of damnation. (Daniel 12:2; Revelation 20)

We Believe it is important to continue the Scriptural practices of the early church.  For this reason, we embrace the practice of water baptism and the taking of communion as valid rites in the local assembly of Christian believers.  While neither of these practices is essential for salvation, they nevertheless serve as a demonstration of genuine faith in Christ. (1 Peter 3:21; Ephesians 2:8)

We Believe in the pre-tribulation rapture of the Church, and we encourage one another to live according to the expectation that Christ may come any moment. (Titus 2:13)

We Believe that our human existence begins at conception and that all life has intrinsic value. (Psalms 139:13-14; John 3:16)

We Believe in the central role of the family in God's work and plan for this age, and that the institution of marriage (between one man and one woman) is sacred to God. (Gen 2:24)

We Believe that faith without works is dead.  Therefore we believe that Christians should actively work to provide both the spiritual and material needs of other human beings. (James 2:20)
