Our deepest convictions affect every decision we make as a church. While the Bible itself is our formal document of faith, the following list includes statements that should help you understand those biblical ideas that fundamentally define who we are. 

We Believe

The Bible: God’s book

We believe the Bible is God's Word to all people. It is divinely inspired and the supreme and final authority for faith and life. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. Because it was inspired by God, the Bible is truth, without any mixture of error and is completely relevant to our daily lives. (II Timothy 3:16, 17) 

We Believe

Trinity: God in three persons

We believe God has existed in relationship with Himself for all eternity. He exists as one substance in three persons: The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Although each member of the Trinity serves different functions, they each possess equal power and authority. (II Corinthians 13:14)

We Believe

Man: God's image bearers

We believe man is made in the image of God and is the supreme object of His creation. Man was created to have fellowship with God, but became separated in that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, man cannot attain a right relationship with God through his own effort. Every human personality is uniquely created, possesses dignity, and is worthy of respect and Christian love. (Romans 3:23; Romans 5:12) 

We Believe

Jesus: The Son of God

We believe that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, died on the cross for our sins according to the Scriptures as representative and substitutionary sacrifice and that all who believe in Him are justified on the grounds of his shed blood. (Colossians 1:14; Romans 3:23-26) 

We Believe

We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into heaven, His present life for us as High Priest and Advocate and the second coming--the personal return of our Savior Jesus Christ. (I Corinthians 15:4; Acts 1:9-11; I John 2:1-2, I Thessalonians 4:13-18; Matthew 24:29-31) 

We Believe

Salvation: God's only way

We believe the blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the only way of salvation through the forgiveness of sin. Salvation is a gift from God, that cannot be earned through our own efforts and is an act of faith. We believe that faith involves belief in Jesus Christ as God’s Son, repentance from sin (Acts 3:16, 7:30-31), public confession of Christ (Matthew 10:32; Romans 10:9-10), and baptism by immersion. (Acts 2:38; Romans 6:1-6) All who receive the Lord Jesus Christ by faith are born of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God, a relationship in which no one may remove them. (Acts 16:31; Romans 8:38-39; Hebrews 3:5)
