What We Believe

God

There is one God, manifested in the three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. [Genesis 1:1:26; Matthew 28:19-20; 2 Corinthians 13:14] Jesus is the one and only Son of God, was born of a virgin, is wholly God and wholly man, lived a sinless life, died in our place as a sacrifice for the sins of mankind, was buried, arose from the grave and ascended into Heaven. [John 1:14; 3:16; Matthew 4; Luke 4; Hebrews 4:15; 2 Corinthians 5:21] Jesus Christ will return to Earth in bodily form. [Revelation 19]

The Bible

The Bible is the Word of God, is without any error, and is the sole authority for life.
[2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21]

Salvation

Man is a special creation of God, made in His image.[Genesis 1:26-27] Mankind fell through the sin of the first man, Adam and all people are sinners in need of salvation.
[Genesis 3:15; Romans 5:12-15] That salvation is a gift of grace from God which is received through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, [Romans 6:23; Titus 3:5; Ephesians2:8-9; John 1:12] and every person who truly is saved is eternally secure in the Lord Jesus Christ. [John 10:28-30; Ephesians 1: 13-14; Hebrews 7:25; 10:10, 14] Those who die without faith in Jesus Christ spend eternity in Hell, and those who die with their sins forgiven through faith in Christ spend eternity in Heaven. [Revelation 20: 14-15; John 3:16]

Baptism

Water baptism is in obedience to the command of Christ and is by immersion after salvation. [Romans 6:3-10]

Individuals & The Church

The local church is the local body of baptized believers with the Lord Jesus Christ as the head. [Ephesians 1:22-23] Each believer has direct access to God through the Lord Jesus Christ and the Bible, God’s Word. [1 Timothy 2:5-6; Hebrews 10:19-26]

Governing Bodies

We believe in the separation of church and state but not in the separation of God and government. [1 Peter 2:13-17].
