Statement of Faith

The Bible

We believe that the Bible is the verbally and plenarily inspired Word of God, inerrant in its original manuscripts. The Bible is our supreme and final authority in faith and life.
(2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20,21)


We believe there is one God eternally existing  in three persons:
God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
(Genesis 1:1, 26; Matthew 28:19; John 1:1, 3; John 4:24; Acts 5:3-4; Romans 1:20; Ephesians 4:5-6; 2 Cor. 13:14)

Jesus Christ

We believe Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, and born of the Virgin Mary, and is true God and true man.
(Matthew 1:18-25; Luke 1:26-38; Romans 9:5; Titus 2:13)

The Fall

We believe man was created in the image of God, that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also that spiritual death which is separation from God and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature, and become guilty sinner in thought, word, and deed.
(Genesis 1:26-27, 3:1-24; Romans 3:25; Romans 5:12-18; 1 John 1:8)


We believe that the Lord Jesus died for our sins according to the Scriptures as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice; that He rose victorious from the grave on the third day; and that all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood. We believe that all who come by grace through faith to accept the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God.
(Isaiah 53; Matthew 20:28, 28:6; John 1:12-13, 3:3,5,16; Romans 3:24-26, 5:1, 19:9; 1 Cor. 15:3,14; 2 Cor. 5:51; Ephesians 1:7, 2:8-9; James 1:18; 1 Peter 1:23; 1 John 2:2)

The Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is the eternal third person of the Trinity, fully divine. The Holy Spirit works to glorify the Son by regenerating those dead in sin so they might respond to the gospel, filling the believer and uniting them to Christ, sanctifying them, and empowering and equipping them for gospel witness and service in the church through spiritual gifts.
(Matt. 28:19; Lk. 3:21-22;  Jn. 3:5-6; Acts 1:8; Rom. 15:16; 1 Cor. 2:10, 12:4-11; 2 Cor. 3:18, 13:14; Eph. 4:11-16)

The Return of Christ

We believe in the personal and imminent return of our Lord Jesus Christ.  
(Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17)

The Resurrection

We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting joy of the saved and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost.  
(John 5:28-29; 1 Cor. 15; 2 Cor. 5:10; Matthew 25:31-46; Revelation 20:4-6; Revelation 20:11-15)


We believe that water baptism by immersion is the biblical testimony of the professed believer in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
(Acts 2:28-41, 47, 8:36-40, 10:47, 18:8; Matthew 28:18-20; Romans 6:3-4)

The Lord's Supper

We believe that those who partake of the Lord's Supper should be born-again believers, walking in fellowship with the Lord Jesus Christ.  
(Acts 2:42-46; 1 Cor. 11:23-29)
