What We Believe

We believe…

In God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, all equal in deity and worthy of worship. Matthew 28:19

The Bible is the Word of God. It is inspired, infallible, and authoritative, and the commands therein must be obeyed by all believers. 2 Timothy 3:16

In the substitutionary death and resurrection of Jesus Christ for all sinners. Romans 4:25

That all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God and should seek redemption through confession, repentance, baptism, and faith in Jesus Christ. Matthew 11:28-30; Romans 3:23; Ephesians 2:1-10; 1 Corinthians 10:13; Hebrews 2:17-18; Hebrews 4:14-16

In eternal life for all who repent and believe in Him and eternal death for all who reject Him. Matthew 25:46; Luke 13:3

In a hearty acceptance that Jesus is the Lord of our lives when we receive Him as our Savior. Romans 10:9, 10; Colossians 2:6; John 3:3

In the personal, visible and bodily return of Jesus Christ to the earth. Acts 1:10, 11; I Thessalonians 4:14-18

That Jesus has provided for and commanded in Scripture that every believer be filled or baptized with the Holy Spirit. This sanctifying truth is both an event and a continuing process in the life of the believer. Acts 9:17; Ephesians 5:18.

A life of Godly character and maturity should be evident as one grows in the Lord. 

That marriage is the permanent, exclusive, comprehensive, and conjugal "one flesh" union of one man and one woman, and in furtherance of the moral, spiritual, and public good of binding father, mother, and child. Genesis 1:27-28; Genesis 2:18-24; Matthew 19:4-9; Mark 10:5-9; Ephesians 5:31-33

That Jesus Christ has made provision for the healing of our physical sicknesses, Isaiah 53:4,5; Matthew 8:16,17, and that laying on of hands by believers, Acts 28:8, and anointing with oil by Elders for healing, are both Biblical and for the Church today. James 5:14-16

In the gifts of the Spirit as found in Romans 12:3-8; Ephesians 4:11, 12; I Corinthians 12-14; I Peter 4:10, 11. These gifts are sovereignly bestowed by God. I Corinthians 12:28-30. Each true follower of Christ receives at least one gift for enablement and ministry. We believe that all the gifts of the Spirit are for today, though no one gift is the initial or required evidence of being filled with the Spirit.

In water baptism as a Scriptural Ordinance with agreement that immersion being the form practiced at this church.

In the Lord’s Supper as the other Scriptural Ordinance.

In the church’s mandate to take responsibility for spreading the gospel to every tribe, tongue, people and nation. Matthew 28:19, 20; Mark 16:15, 16; Acts 1:8.
