What We Believe

WE BELIEVE  there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons: The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory; that this triune God created all, upholds all, and governs all.

 

WE BELIEVE  the SCRIPTURES of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, Fully inspired without error in the original manuscripts, and the infallible rule of faith and practice.

 

WE BELIEVE  in GOD, THE FATHER, an infinite, personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love; that He concerns Himself mercifully in affairs of men; that He hears and answers prayers; and that He saves from sin and death all who repent and come to Him through Jesus Christ.

 

WE BELIEVE  in JESUS CHRIST, God's only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit.  We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles and teachings, His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, and personal, visible return to earth.

 

WE BELIEVE  in the HOLY SPIRIT, who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify and empower for ministry all who believe in Christ.  We believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ and that He is an abiding Helper, Teacher, and Guide.  We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and in the exercise of all the Biblical gifts of the Spirit.

 

WE BELIEVE  that all PEOPLE are sinners by nature and choice and, therefore, are under condemnation; that God regenerates by the Holy Spirit, those who repent of their sins and confess Jesus Christ as Lord; that Jesus Christ baptizes the seeking believer with the Holy Spirit and power for service, often subsequent to regeneration.

 

WE BELIEVE  in the universal CHURCH, the living spiritual body, of which Christ is the Head. All regenerated persons are members of His CHURCH.

 

WE BELIEVE  the Lord Jesus Christ committed two ORDINANCES to the Church: 1) baptism, and 2) the Lord's Supper. 

We believe in baptism by immersion. 

We believe in communion open to all believers who have prayerfully considered and applied 1 Corinthians 11:26-30.
