What We Believe

We believe in the one true God, existing in three persons: God the Father, God the Son — Jesus Christ, and God the Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:2; Matthew 5:16, 45, 6:1, 4, 8, 9; John 1:1-4, 14:9-11, 14:16-20, 2 Peter 1:21)

Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is eternally equal with God and is God. He became a man through a miraculous virgin birth. He was fully human and fully divine. He lived a perfect life, committing no sin. He voluntarily died on the cross so that His death could be used as payment for our sins. Through the power of God, Jesus rose from the dead after three days. Jesus will return to this earth at God's appointed time to judge all of mankind. (Matthew 1:18; Luke 1:26-38; John 1:14; Romans 5:15-17; Colossians 2:9; 1 John 1:1-3)

The Bible

We believe the Bible is God's inspired word. We believe God inspired the autographs (original writings) of the Scripture and those autographs were without error. The Bible is the final authority on what is believed, taught, and practiced by this church. There are no other writings thus inspired by God. (John 14:26; 16:12-15; Acts 1:16; 1 Corinthians 2:12-13; 2 Timothy 3:14-16; 2 Peter 1:20-21)


We believe that man was created in the image of God to have fellowship with, and glorify, God. Man, however, willfully sinned against God and is consequently lost. Salvation — the forgiveness of sins — is only available through the person and shed blood of Jesus Christ. Salvation is the free gift of God's grace and cannot be earned in any way. We receive God's grace by putting faith in Christ — making Him Lord of our lives, repenting of our sin, confessing our faith in Jesus as God, and being baptized into Christ. (Genesis 1:26-27; Matthew 26:28; Acts 2:38; 22:16; Romans 5:9; 6:1-11; 10:9-10; Ephesians 2:8-9; Hebrews 11:3; 1 Peter 1:18-19; 2 Peter 3:8-9; 1 John 1:7)
