What We Believe
We believe that the Bible is the sole fully and Divinely inspired Word of God, faultless in its entirety, and stands alone as our rule and guide of faith and practice.
We believe in the one true and living God, the Creator of the Universe and all things therein. He is infinite, eternal, unchangeable, and is revealed to us as the triune but completely equal Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God the Father is the head of the Godhead. God the Son, Jesus Christ, lived a perfect and sinless life, and sacrificed Himself so that mankind may be forgiven and freed of their sin. He was resurrected after a period of three days to new life and 40 days later ascended back into Heaven where He even now sits at the right hand of God the Father and intercedes on our behalf. God the Holy Spirit is the One sent from God to help guide and lead Christian throughout his or her life. He allows us to know God’s heart and how God wants His children to live. He convicts of us our sin and is continually with us.
Sin and Salvation
We believe that man is guilty of sin from conception and, thus, deserves to be punished for that sin by God by spending an eternity apart from Him in an eternal Hell. The only way mankind can be forgiven of and freed from this sin is through Jesus Christ and His death, burial, and glorious resurrection and a complete repentance of sin.
We believe in the final resurrection of all men, both forgiven and unforgiven. We hold that those who place their lives in Jesus Christ during this lifetime will be raised to eternal life, but those who are not in Jesus Christ in this life will be raised to eternal condemnation.
The Church and Ordinances
We hold that the New Testament church is an fellowship of baptized believers in Christ of like mind, belief, and doctrine who have come together to worship and serve God. We believe that the only two church ordinances are Believer’s Baptism through immersion and the Lord’s Supper, which is a picture of what Christ did for mankind on the Cross and was implemented by Jesus Himself on the night before He was crucified.
