OUR BELIEFS

No theological statement is all-encompassing but we strive to be consistent and intentional in communicating the things that we believe as a church body. Please review this statement of our beliefs and if you have any questions we would love to talk to you about them!

  • God is the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth and all things seen and unseen.

  • Jesus Christ is God’s only Son, our Lord, and Savior

  • Jesus was born of the Virgin Mary

  • Jesus was crucified, dead and buried and on the third day God raised him from the dead

  • The Holy Spirit is the presence of God living within believers

  • The Bible is God’s Word, inerrant (without error) in its original languages and it is our authority for faith and life.

  • Every individual has the right to interpret the Bible for themselves and communicate with God personally.

  • In the interest of civil and religious liberty, the church and state should be separate, so that neither is under the control of the other.

  • The ordinance of “Believers Baptism” by immersion.

  • The ordinance of “The Lord’s Supper.”

  • The complete autonomy of the local church.

  • Because we are born with a sinful nature and choose to disobey God by living only for ourselves, we are in need of salvation.

  • Faith is trusting in God’s provision for our lives now and for eternity.

  • Promote, support, and be active in missions and evangelism worldwide.

  • A person becomes a Christian by the confession of his/her sins, believing that Jesus died on the cross as a personal sacrifice for them, asking Jesus to take control of his/her heart (moral center) and repenting (promising with the help of the Holy Spirit) to go a different direction for the rest of their lives.

  • All believers are called to extend unconditional selfless love, unconditional grace, unconditional mercy (forgiveness) and unconditional generosity to each other and to the world.
