Statement of Faith

We Believe

We believe the Holy Scriptures to be the inerrant, infallible Word of God and our authoritative guide to faith and practice.

We believe in one God existing in three persons as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ became man through the Holy Spirit and purchased our salvation by His death, burial, resurrection, and ascension into heaven.

We believe that the Holy Spirit, the 3rd person of the Trinity, indwells every believer in Jesus Christ and gives power to live the Christian life. It is through Him that we are able to live in victory!

We believe that man was created in the image of God, but through sinful disobedience experienced spiritual and physical death. All born after Genesis 3 are sinners both by nature and by practice. We believe that man is totally unable to save himself.

We believe that salvation is the gift of God brought to man by the grace of God and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

We believe that all true believers, once saved, are kept saved forever.

We believe that the local Church has the right of self-government, free from the interference of anyone. It is Scriptural for local churches to cooperate in sharing the good news with a lost world.

We believe that each believer should yield their lives to God on a daily basis and live in such a way as to bring glory to God by their actions, thoughts, and intentions. We believe that God has called us through the Great Commission to reach our world for Jesus Christ.

We believe in the literal personality of Satan who is the declared enemy of God and all believers and is destined to the judgment of eternity apart from God.

We believe in the imminent, personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ for His own and His literal 1000 year reign upon the earth after His return.

We believe that upon death, the believer passes immediately into the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe also that the souls of those who have rejected Jesus Christ as Savior remain after death in a conscious misery until the final judgment of the Great White Throne where they will be separated from God forever.

We believe that water baptism by immersion and the Lord’s Supper are the only ordinances of the Church today.
