Our Beliefs

On the Bible

The Scriptures are inerrant, infallible, and God-breathed and, therefore, are the final authority for faith and life. The sixty-six books of the Old and New Testament are the complete and divine revelation of God to Man. 

2 Timothy 3:16, John 1:1-4

On God

There is only one living and true God. He is all-powerful and is the Creator, Redeemer, Preserver, and Ruler of the universe.

Gen. 1:1, 2 Samuel 7:22

On Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is God the Son, the second person of the Trinity. On earth, Jesus was 100% God and 100% man. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed miracles, died on the cross for mankind, and shed His blood to atone for our sins. He rose from the dead on the third day according to the Scriptures, ascended to the right hand of the Father, and will return again in power and glory.

-John 1:1, I Timothy 3:16, Isaiah 9:6, Philippians 2:5-6, I Timothy 2:5

On Salvation

We believe that salvation is the gift of God brought to man by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, Whose precious blood was shed on Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins. We believe that all sins, except blasphemy of the Holy Spirit, are forgivable.

-Matthew 12:31-37, John 1:12, Ephesians 1:7,  1 Peter 1:18-19, 1 John 1:9

On the Holy Trinity

We believe in one triune God, eternally existing in three persons- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit-each co-eternal in being, co-identical in nature, co-equal in power and glory, and having the same attributes and perfections.

-Deut. 6:4, Mat. 28:19, John 14:10, Cor. 13:14

On Water Baptism

Following faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the new convert is commanded by the Word of God to be baptized in water in the Name of the Father and of the Son and the Holy Spirit.

– Matthew 28:19, Acts 2:38, Mark 16:16, Acts 8:12
