Beliefs

We Believe There is One God.

He is sometimes called Jehovah or Yahweh (the Hebrew word for God). He is revealed in three persons: God (the Father), Jesus (the Son), and the Holy Spirit. The three are commonly referred to as the Trinity. See Deuteronomy 6:4, Matthew 28:19, Ephesians 4:5.

We Believe Salvation is Available to Anyone who Believes in Jesus.

Though originally good, Man willingly fell to sin - ushering evil and death, both physical and spiritual, into the world. God’s Son, Jesus, came to earth as a baby, born to a virgin girl named Mary. He lived a life without sin, and willingly died for us. Three days later He rose from the dead, He ascended to Heaven, and He is alive today. We can know Him personally by believing in Him and asking Him to forgive our sins. See John 3:16, Romans 6:23

We Believe the Bible is the Word of God.

The Bible was written over a period of about 1500 years, in three languages (Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic), by 40 different writers, yet it contains an incredibly accurate historical record and an impeccably consistent presentation of Spiritual truth. This is only possible because the words of the Bible were inspired by the Holy Spirit. The greatest evidence of the authority of the Bible is not in historical facts or its consistency. It is found in the obvious result of applying the truths of the Bible to our every day lives. See 2 Timothy 3:15-17, 2 Peter 1:21.

We Believe that the Church has a Mission.

Jesus said His mission was to "seek and save all who are lost in sin." We believe that the Church's mission is the same. We believe the Church is the Body of Christ and consists of the people who, throughout time, have accepted God's offer of redemption (regardless of religious denomination) through the sacrificial death of His Son Jesus Christ. See Luke 19:10.

We Believe and Practice Two Ordinances.

(1) Water Baptism by Immersion after repenting of one's sins and receiving Christ's gift of salvation, and (2) Holy Communion (the Lord's Supper) as a symbolic remembrance of Christ's suffering and death for our salvation.
