what we believe

 
 
 
We Believe...

In One Triune God; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, the Creator of all things. (John 1:1-3; II Cor. 13:14)

In the Bible as the inspired Word of God. (II Tim. 3:15-17)

That man originally fell through voluntary disobedience to God's law. (Genesis 3)

In a bodily ressurection of the dead, final judgement, heaven and hell. (Rev. 21:8; I Cor. 15)

That Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, lived a sinless life, died for all sin, was buried and raised from the dead.

In personal salvation through the shed blood of Jesus Christ unto everlasting life. (John 3:16; I John 1:7-10)

In walking in newness of life by the power of the Holy Spirit. (Rom. 6:1-6)

In the personal, visible return of our Lord Jesus Christ to earth. (II Thess. 1:7-10)

In water baptism by immersion for the remission of sins (Acts 2:38). We believe baptism does not earn salvation any more than faith earns salvation. It is not a work; it is an obedient faith response to God�s grace as demonstrated in Christ�s sacrifice. Baptism forgives the past, refreshes the present and reserves our future. Jesus did it to identify with those who would follow Him and He commands us to be baptized. Baptism is an outward expression of a heart decision (Romans 6:17-18).

In discipleship (mentoring), praise & worship, fellowship, and servanthood inorder to live a full life. (Eph 4)

In the celebration of the Lord's Supper every Sunday(Holy Communion). (Acts 20:7)

In the gift of the Holy Spirit. (Acts 2:38)

In the Church's mission to evangelize the world. (Mark 16:15-16)

  • In essentials - unity
  • In non-essentials - liberty
  • In all things - charity (love)
