OUR BELIEFS

ABOUT GOD

God is the only God and is the Creator of everything. (Genesis 1; John 1:1-3)


ABOUT JESUS

Jesus Christ is the Son of God who was born among us, was crucified on a cross, and was raised from death by God.  Jesus Christ is our personal Lord and Savior, forgives us of our wrongs, and is the leader of our lives. (John 1:14; 3:16-18)


ABOUT GOD’S FORGIVENESS

God’s forgiveness comes only through Christ and is a gift from Him because of His grace and love. (2 Corinthians 5:14; Ephesians 2:4)


ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT

The Holy Spirit is God’s Spirit and is present and working in the daily lives of Christians to direct us and help us live a Christ-like life. (John 16:5-16; Romans 8:9-11)


ABOUT THE BIBLE

The Bible is God’s Word and is the authority and guide for all that we say and all that we do. (Psalm 119:105; 2 Timothy 3:16-17)


ABOUT SALVATION

Salvation is not something that can be earned. It is a free gift from God provided by Jesus’ death on the cross. It is available to everyone who accepts Jesus by faith, repents, confesses, and is baptized, as taught and practiced by Jesus Himself, by immersion in water symbolizing His own death, burial, and resurrection as well as the believer’s commitment to follow Him. (Mark 1:9-13; Romans 6:1-11)


ABOUT THE HEAD OF THE CHURCH

Christ is the head of the church. We submit ourselves and all our activities to His will as we are led by the Bible and His Spirit. (Philippians 2:9-11; Ephesians 5:23)


ABOUT CHURCH MEMBERSHIP

Because immersed Christians are united in a dynamic relationship with Christ, they are also united with one another and therefore enjoy the privilege of church membership. (1 Corinthians 12:12-13)


ABOUT COMMUNION

As was the custom of the church in the New Testament, the communion of the Lord’s Supper is shared weekly among followers of Jesus Christ. (Acts 20:7; Luke 22:7-22)


ABOUT THE RESURRECTION

Resurrection from the dead to eternal life with Christ is promised to all Christians. (1 Corinthians 15:50-58)
