What We Believe...
We believe that there is one God who is the creator of the universe and has eternally existed in three parts, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
...About the Bible
We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God. It is the authoritative rule of faith and practice for Christians and the Church.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the one and only Son of God. He lived a perfect, sinless life on earth. He offered himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all mankind when He died upon the cross. He was buried in a tomb for three days, and then to demonstrate His power over sin and death, He arose from the dead. Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven.
...About the Holy Spirit
That the Holy Spirit is one who participates in the process of conversion and who indwells, guides, instructs, and empowers the believer.
We believe that the blood of Jesus and His sacrifice on the cross provide the sole basis for our forgiveness of sins and that those who put their faith in Christ should repent of sin, confess that faith, and be baptized into Him.
...About the Church
We believe that the Church is the body of Christ on earth. All who have put their faith in Jesus Christ make up the church. We are empowered by the Holy Spirit to be salt and light. The Church exists to save the lost and edify the saved.
We observe the practice of baptizing the repentant believer by immersion in water, confident that this expresses the form and purposes of the New Testament precedent. The New Testament teaches that all believers receive the gift of the Holy Spirit in relation to their faith, repentance, and baptism.
We celebrate the Lord’s Supper each Sunday, as we find the New Testament Christians did. In taking of the bread and the cup, we remember our Lord’s sacrifice for us and we strengthen our relationship with Him. We practice an “open communion,” that is, the communion service is open to all believers, not just church members.
