What We Believe

The Bible

We believe that the Bible is the Word of God. We believe the Bible is divinely inspired; that it contains no errors in the original manuscripts and is preserved by God for us; that it is authoritative for the church and each of us for every age.

Psalms 19:7-8; Hebrews 4:12; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; Romans15:4

We believe that there is one God, a loving creator eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe God is all powerful, all knowing, ever present, unchanging, completely worthy of our trust, and above all, Holy.

Genesis 1:1; Deuteronomy 6:4; Psalm 90:2; Romans 11:36; 1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14

We believe Jesus Christ was sent by God the Father into the world to save sinners. We believe that Jesus Christ was virgin born, sinless in life, and mighty in words and deeds. We believe Jesus was both God and man, that He was crucified for our sins, and was bodily raised from the dead. We believe Jesus ascended to His Father’s side where He is head of the church and intercedes for all believers. We believe Jesus Christ is coming again personally, visibly and bodily to reign as Lord.

Isaiah 9:6; Matthew 1:22-23; The Gospel of John; Hebrews 1:1-2, 4:14-15; Romans 1:3-4; Acts 1:9-11; Titus 2:12-14; Colossians 1:13-20

Holy Spirit
We believe the Holy Spirit is a person, is God, and has all the divine characteristics. We believe the Holy Spirit indwells all believers, baptizes, and seals them at the moment of salvation. We believe the Holy Spirit fills all believers in response to the confession of sin as they surrender to Him.

Ezekiel 36:26-27; John 16:7-17; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 2:12, 3:16; Ephesians 1:13-14; Galatians 5:25

We believe human beings are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like him in character. Humans are the supreme object of God’s creation. Although humans have tremendous potential for good, we are broken because of our disobedience to God, which is called “sin.” Sin separates us from God.

Genesis 1:26-27; Genesis 3; Isaiah 53:6; Romans 1:18-19, 21-23; 3:23; Isaiah 59:2

We believe that Jesus, through His death on the cross, provided salvation for all. However, to receive salvation one must repent (turn away) from sin and trust Jesus Christ alone. We believe followers of Christ (Christians) are eternally secure and cannot lose his or her salvation. We believe Christians may, however, lose his or her joy by sin result in in the discipline of the Father. We believe all Christians will, at death, depart to be with Christ in their spirits and, at Christ’s return, receive a new body which will be like His glorious body.

Isaiah 59:1; Romans 3:23, 5:12; 1 John 1:8-9; Romans 10:9; John 3:16; Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 1:16-17; John 10:28-29; Romans 5:8; 6:23; 1 Corinthians 15:31; 2 Corinthians 5:2

The Church
We believe a New Testament church is a local body of believers who have agreed together to follow Christ in such a way that we glorify God, impacting the community and the world as we cooperate with God’s purpose. We believe it is biblical to organize under qualified leadership, gather regularly for worship and fellowship, observe the ordinances of Baptism and Communion. We believe church members are unified by the Spirit in love, are corrected for holiness, and are sent out to fulfill the great commandment and the great commission in the world. We believe we are members of God’s universal Church, we partner with other Christian local churches and ministries for even greater Kingdom work

Deuteronomy 6:5; Acts 2:44-47; Romans 12:1-2; Ephesians 1:22-23, 2:11-3:6, 4:4; Matthew 5-7, 18, 22:37-40, 28:19-20; The book of Acts; Colossians 1:28-29; 2 Corinthians 5:9; Galatians 1:6-9, 5:7-15, 6:1-5; Colossians 3:12-16; 1 Thessalonians 5:12-15; 1 Timothy 1:5; 1 Timothy 3; The book of Titus; Letters of 1,2, and 3 John

Baptism and Communion
We believe the Bible instructs the Church to observe two ordinances, baptism and communion (the Lord’s Supper) as visible expressions of the gospel. We believe baptism is symbolic of the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ and the new life Christians have in him. We believe baptism is not essential for salvation, but if possible, should be done as a public profession. We believe baptism is to be experienced through the full water immersion of the individual.

We believe Communion, or the Lord’s Supper, is a memorial reminder of Christ’s death, anticipates His second coming, and reminds us of our new covenant in him. The elements of bread and wine or juice are symbols of Christ’s broken body and shed blood. Communion is not a means of salvation. Rather, it is a testament of a believer’s faith in the saving work of Jesus Christ on the cross.

Matthew 3: 13-17; 28:19; Acts 2:41-47, 20:28; Ephesians 4:4; Matthew 26:26-30; Mark 14:22-26; Luke 22:19, 20; 1 Corinthians 11:23-34

We believe that prayer is God’s gift of communication with His children. We believe that followers of Christ ought to always pray as a demonstration of our total dependence on God.

1 Thessalonians 5:17; Luke 18:1; Luke 11; Matthew 6; Romans 8:26-27, 34; 1 John 5:13-15; James 5:16
