Our Core Doctrinal Beliefs:
Statements of our foundational beliefs about God, Jesus, The Bible, etc.:
We believe in the one and only living and true God. The eternal God reveals Himself to us as Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, yet one in nature and purpose (often referred to as the Trinity).
We believe that Jesus Christ is Lord, yet He became flesh (incarnation), being born of a virgin, and died as a sacrifice for the sins of all people on the cross.
We believe the Bible was written by persons divinely inspired, and it is the record of God’s revelation of Himself to man. It is a perfect treasure of divine instruction. It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter.
We believe that mankind was created by the act of God and in the image of God. Yet sin has separated us all from God, and we have no hope for fellowship with God now or in eternity apart from the death of Jesus on the cross for our sins.
We believe that salvation is the free gift of God offered to all who accept Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord by faith, and that God has put Jesus Christ forward as the one and only way to enter into God’s family.
We believe the New Testament church is a local body of believers who have come together by believer’s baptism for the purpose of promoting the good news of Jesus around the world through worship, evangelism, ministry, fellowship, and discipleship.
Baptism and the Lord's Supper
Our church recognizes two ordinances, meaning religious acts done for their deep symbolic meaning, which are believer’s baptism by immersion, and the Lord’s Supper, sometimes called communion.
Our church believes in the promise of Christ that He will return, and that the timing of this is known only in the heart of God, so our duty is to be prepared and to diligently spread the good news of Christ until that time.
