We believe the Bible to be the verbally inspired Word of God, inerrant in the original manuscripts and the sufficient and final authority for all matters of faith, practice, and life.
We believe the one true and living God is one in essence, possessing three, personal distinctions: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary; that He paid the penalty for our sins on the cross and He rose from the dead three days later.
We believe in the deity of the Holy Spirit and that He indwells and enables the Christian to live a godly life
We believe that all human beings, except Jesus Christ, are totally depraved and guilty before God as a result of the fall of Adam. We commit acts of sin because we are sinners by nature.
We believe that the Triune God saves sinners by grace alone through faith in Christ's substitutionary atonement alone.
We believe that the universal Church is the body of Christ, comprised of all true believers from the past, present, and those in the future until the Rapture. Jesus Christ is the sole head of the Church.
We believe that the local church is an assembly of immersed believers, led by pastors and served by deacons.
We believe that there are two church ordinances: Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
We believe that there will be a rapture, tribulation period, kingdom, then eternity.
We believe that God has ordained the family as the foundational institution of human society. Marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in covenant commitment for a lifetime. It is God’s unique gift to reveal the union between Christ and His church. Life begins at conception and children are a blessing and heritage from the Lord.
