Our Beliefs

 

1. God

God is Creator of all things. He has always been and will always be. There is only one God in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He is holy and righteous, merciful and abounding in love. God is just, sovereign, beautiful, majestic, and worthy of glory, honor and worship forever.
 

2. The Gospel

God created the earth and man in the earth. Man fell from God through sin. God the Father sent God the Son, Jesus, to live a perfect life, die on a cross in our place and then was risen from the dead. Through His life, death, and resurrection, Jesus offers salvation to all men and gives life to those who trust in who He is and what He has done for them.
 

3. Eternal Security

God gives man eternal life through Jesus Christ, so the believer is secure in salvation for eternity. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self effort of the Christian.
 

4. The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus and to awaken the hearts of men unto salvation. He lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation to provide the Christian with power for living, understanding of truth, and grace to put off the old self and to live in godliness.
 

5. The Bible

The Bible is God’s Word to all men. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian belief and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without any mixture of error.
 

6. Baptism 

Baptism by immersion symbolizes the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus and is the public declaration that any person makes to proclaim to the world that they have believed in the Person and Work of Jesus for their salvation.
 
7. Communion 

Communion is an ordinance given to all believers by Jesus Himself to remember His sacrifice for us. Communion also reminds us of the new covenant promise we have through the gospel. The elements of bread and wine or grape juice are symbols of Christ’s broken body and shed blood. Communion is not a means of salvation. Rather, it is a testament of a believer’s faith in the atoning work of the cross.
