Jesus Christ is at the center of everything. We believe that Jesus is the only one who can reconcile us to God. He lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory and empower us for life. We believe that Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised.
We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy.
We believe that the Bible is God’s Word. It is accurate, authoritative, and applicable to our everyday lives.
We believe that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives.
We believe that in order to receive forgiveness and a fresh start with God, we must repent of our sins, believe in Jesus, and commit to His will for our lives.
We believe in the power and significance of the Church and the necessity of believers to meet regularly together.
Need More Specifics?
We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God, entirely without error or contradiction in all matters of which it speaks; we additionally believe that God by His singular care and providence has preserved His Holy Scriptures; and that the Holy Bible is, therefore, the only and sufficient final and supreme rule and authority of faith and practice.
We believe that the Godhead is made up of three separate, distinct persons (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) and that they are all of the same essence.
We believe in the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ; that He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.
We believe that the only way to be saved is by faith in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ and that those who accept Him as their Savior are eternally secure.
We believe that our Lord Jesus Christ ascended into Heaven and is now seated at the right hand of God, the Father, that He ever liveth to make intercession for all that come to God by Him.
We believe that the Church, which is the body of Christ, began with the descent of the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost and that each one who accepts the Lord Jesus Christ as his or her personal Savior is a member of the body of Christ and is indwelled by the Holy Spirit.
We believe that the Gospel commission is for the Church, that the Lord’s Supper and water Baptism by immersion for believers only are Divine Institutions and that Christ desires us to practice them in this age.
We believe that God may, at any moment, return in the air to rapture the saints, and that a Tribulation period of approximately seven years shall follow, after which He will come to earth with His saints and rule for a thousand years. After this, the wicked will be judged and cast into the lake of fire.
We believe that Satan is a person, the author of the fall, and that he shall be eternally punished.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead, both the just and the unjust, and in the eternal conscious punishment of the lost and the eternal joy of the saved.
We believe the sign gifts of the Spirit to be miraculous gifts sovereignly bestowed by the Holy Spirit for a limited time and for specific circumstances.
