Our Beliefs

GOD

We believe in the one true and living God; the Creator and Sustainer of all things.  We believe that God is the self-existent being co-equal and co-eternal in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit.  Having infinite wisdom, ultimate authority, and divine power, God has foreordained the reconciliation of humanity to Himself for His glory and honor.

 

JESUS

We believe in the Son of God, who is God. Jesus is the Logos of God; the Word of God personified in flesh.  Conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, Jesus is the Christ (Messiah) sent by God to liberate humanity from the power of sin and redeem humanity from the punishment of sin.  He lived a sinless life, was crucified, and died on the Cross at Calvary, rose from the grave, and ascended bodily glorified into heaven.  Jesus is seated at the right hand of the Father, where He acts as Mediator between God and humanity with the promise to return to receive His bride.

 

HOLY SPIRIT

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the promised Advocate sent by Christ to the world.  The Holy Spirit effectually convinces of sin, reveals the mercy of God through Christ, and regenerates the soul.  The Holy Spirit indwells and sanctifies believers, leads them into all truth, and engenders them to holy and righteous living.

THE BIBLE

We believe in the Holy Scriptures both Old and New Testament.  The Bible is the infallible, inerrant word of God recorded by persons divinely inspired by God.  As God is its author, the Bible is the absolute standard of truth and the basis for a believer’s character and conduct.

SALVATION

We believe that salvation is a gift from God wholly of grace received through faith alone in Christ alone.

 

THE CHURCH

We believe that the Church (universal) is the collective body of the Lord Jesus the Christ, existing through all ages.  We believe that the Church (local) is a company of baptized believers, joined together by covenant to keep the faith and to observe the ordinances of Christ, and to use the means He has appointed for the good of their own souls, for the salvation of others, and for the glory of His name.

 

ORDINANCES

We believe in the Ordinances of Christ-Baptism and Holy Communion. We believe that Baptism is symbolic of spiritual renewal and rebirth; it is a visible means by which a believer voluntarily professes their inward hope and confession of faith in the Lord Jesus the Christ.  We believe that Baptism is performed through immersion in water, in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We believe that Holy Communion is symbolic of the sacrifice of Christ; it is a visible means to remember and proclaim the Lord’s death until His return.  We believe that Baptism and Holy Communion are not salvific and should only be participated in by those who have professed faith in the Lord Jesus the Christ.
