Our Beliefs

Statement of Faith

We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are verbally inspired, completely inerrant in the original writings, and the sole authority for faith and practice.

We believe in one God, the God of the Bible, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary and is fully God and fully man.

We believe that man was created in the image of God; that he sinned and experienced not only physical death, but also spiritual death, which is separation from God; and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature and in the case of those who reach moral responsibility, are sinners in thought, word and deed.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who believe in Him are justified by faith alone on the grounds of His shed blood alone.

We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into Heaven, and His present life for us as High Priest and advocate.

We believe in the personal, physical, and future return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

We believe that all who receive the Lord Jesus Christ by faith are born of the Holy Spirit, and baptized by Him into the church of Christ, and are eternally secure.

We believe every Christian is a priest before God, having been gifted and uniquely placed into the church by the Holy Spirit.

We believe the local Church is a congregation of baptized believers, associated by a covenant of faith and the fellowship of the gospel, observing the ordinances of Christ which are Believer’s Baptism by immersion and the Lord’s Supper.

We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and of the unjust; the everlasting blessedness of the saved; and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost.
