We Believe

The Bible is the inspired, authoritative Word of God.

There is one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, known as the Trinity.

Christ is the Son of God, who was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life and performed physical miracles.  We believe in His atoning death on the cross, His resurrection, ascension, and His imminent personal return in power and glory.

Salvation or the "born again" experience is accomplished in each believer by the power of the Holy Spirit whenever anyone repents of his or her sins.  This is not accomplished by good works or church membership but by the grace of God applied to those who confess their sins and place their trust in the Risen Son of God.

Water baptism by immersion is an important testimony of Christ's transforming work in each born-again Christian.

The Holy spirit is present and operates His gifts through individuals for the purpose of glorifying God and equipping the Body of Christ to continue His work on earth.

Every believer is gifted in specific ways to serve God and reach others by using their God-given talents and abilities.

Marriage is a divinely-sanctioned relationship between a man and woman and becomes the foundation of loving, committed, Christian families.

All human life is sacred, including the pre-born, aged and disabled.

Christian churches should strive to make positive contributions to the community through evangelism, prayer, fellowship, discipleship and practical help.

These are a few of our foundational  Biblical beliefs and not meant to be a complete statement of our faith.
