WHAT WE BELIEVE

The Bible

We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God, wholly without error as originally given by God. It is the ultimate source of truth for Christian beliefs and living.

God

We believe there is only one true and living God, the Creator and Sustainer of all things. He is infinite, eternal, and unchangeable, and is revealed to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ

We believe Jesus Christ, the Son and promised Messiah of the Old Testament, was born of the Virgin Mary, hence the God-Man. He lived a sinless life, died on the cross to redeem man, rose again from the dead to justify the believer, ascended to the right hand of God where He intercedes for us, and in the Father's own time will return in visible, personal form.

The Holy Spirit

We believe the Holy Spirit is the one sent from God to convict unbelievers of sin and the need for salvation. He is the resident guide, teacher, and strengthener of the believer.

Reference: Genesis 1:2; Judges 14:6; Job 26:13; Psalms 51:11; 139:7; Isaiah 61:1-3; Joel 2:28- 32; Matthew 1:18; 3:16; 4:1; 12:28-32; 28:19; Mark 1:10,12; Luke 1:35; 4:1,18-19; 11:13; 12:12; 24:49; John 4:24; 14:16-17,26; 15:26; 16:7-14; Acts 1:8; 2:1-4,38; 4:31; 5:3; 6:3; 7:55; 8:17,39; 10:44; 13:2; 15:28; 16:6; 19:1-6; Romans 8:9-11,14-16,26-27; 1 Corinthians 2:10-14; 3:16; 12:3-11,13; Galatians 4:6; Ephesians 1:13-14; 4:30; 5:18; 1 Thessalonians 5:19; 1 Timothy 3:16; 4:1; 2 Timothy 1:14; 3:16; Hebrews 9:8,14; 2 Peter 1:21; 1 John 4:13; 5:6-7; Revelation 1:10; 22:17.

Man

We believe that man was created innocent, that he was tempted by Satan and sinned; because of this, men have been born in sin since that time and are by nature the children of wrath.

Reference: Genesis 1:26-30; 2:5,7,18-22; 3; 9:6; Psalms 1; 8:3-6; 32:1-5; 51:5; Isaiah 6:5; Jeremiah 17:5; Matthew 16:26; Acts 17:26-31; Romans 1:19-32; 3:10-18,23; 5:6,12,19; 6:6; 7:14- 25; 8:14-18,29; 1 Corinthians 1:21-31; 15:19,21-22; Ephesians 2:1-22; Colossians 1:21- 22; 3:9-11.

Salvation

We believe that Jesus Christ is the only Savior. Apart from Jesus Christ there is no salvation. Salvation is a gift received through repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Click here to learn more.

Eternity

We believe in the final resurrection of all men, just and unjust. We believe that those who commit their lives to Jesus Christ during this life will be raised to everlasting life, but those who are not committed to Jesus Christ in this life will be raised to everlasting condemnation.

Reference: Genesis 1:1;; Isaiah 9:6-7;; Jeremiah 23:5-6;; Matthew 3:2;; 4:8-10,23;; 12:25-28;; 13:1-52;; 25:31-46;; 26:29;; Mark 1:14-15;; 9:1;; Luke 4:43;; 8:1;; 9:2;; 12:31-32;; 17:20-21;; 23:42;; John 3:3;; 18:36;; Acts 1:6-7;; 17:22-31;; Romans 5:17;; 8:19;; 1 Corinthians 15:24-28;; Colossians 1:13;; Hebrews 11:10,16;; 12:28;; 1 Peter 2:4-10;; 4:13;; Revelation 1:6,9;; 5:10;; 11:15;; 21-22. 

The Church

We believe that a church is a group of baptized believers in Christ who have covenanted together to follow the teachings of Jesus in doctrine, worship, and practice.

Reference: Matthew 16:15-19;; 18:15-20;; Acts 2:41-42,47;; 5:11-14;; 6:3-6;; 13:1-3;; 14:23,27;; 15:1-30;; 16:5;; 20:28;; Romans 1:7;; 1 Corinthians 1:2;; 3:16;; 5:4-5;; 7:17;; 9:13-14;; 12;; Ephesians 1:22-23;; 2:19-22;; 3:8-11,21;; 5:22-32;; Philippians 1:1;; Colossians 1:18;; 1 Timothy 2:9- 14;; 3:1-15;; 4:14;; Hebrews 11:39-40;; 1 Peter 5:1-4;; Revelation 2-3;; 21:2-3. 

Baptism and the Lord’s Supper

We believe only those who are committed to Jesus Christ as Lord are scriptural subjects for baptism and that immersion is the only proper mode of baptism. The Lord’s Supper is a symbolic act of obedience.

Reference: Matthew 3:13-17;; 26:26-30;; 28:19-20;; Mark 1:9-11;; 14:22-26;; Luke 3:21-22;; 22:19-20;; John 3:23;; Acts 2:41-42;; 8:35-39;; 16:30-33;; 20:7;; Romans 6:3-5;; 1 Corinthians 10:16,21;; 11:23-29;; Colossians 2:12. 

Missions and Evangelism

Jesus Christ has commanded the preaching of the Gospel to all nations. It is the duty of every child of God to seek constantly to win the lost to Christ by verbal witness under-girded by a Christian lifestyle, and by other methods in harmony with the gospel of Christ.

Reference: Genesis 12:1-3;; Exodus 19:5-6;; Isaiah 6:1-8;; Matthew 9:37-38;; 10:5-15;; 13:18-30, 37- 43;; 16:19;; 22:9-10;; 24:14;; 28:18-20;; Luke 10:1-18;; 24:46-53;; John 14:11-12;; 15:7-8,16;; 17:15;; 20:21;; Acts 1:8;; 2;; 8:26-40;; 10:42-48;; 13:2-3;; Romans 10:13-15;; Ephesians 3:1- 11;; 1 Thessalonians 1:8;; 2 Timothy 4:5;; Hebrews 2:1-3;; 11:39-12:2;; 1 Peter 2:4-10;; Revelation 22:17.
