  • Statement of Beliefs

    Bible/Scriptures:

    We believe the bible is the word of God and consists of 66 books. The bible shows us who God is and reveals His plans for us. The bible is just as relevant today as it was in times past. The bible is for everyone who wants to know God and/or answers to life’s questions.

    We believe all scripture in the Holy Bible is inspired by God. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

    We believe the things taught in the bible were revealed to the writers by the Holy Spirit. (2 Peter 1:21; 1 Corinthians 2:13)

    We believe God’s Word is infallible, impartial, prophetically correct and the highest standard of morality. (John17:17, James 1:21, Luke 24:44, Romans 2:11, 2 Corinthians 5:10-11, Revelation 20:12)

    We believe everything written in the scriptures is to teach us. (Romans 15:4)

    God:

    We believe there is one true and living God who is the creator and sustainer of the universe, one body and one spirit, God and Father of all. (Genesis 1:1, Ephesians 4:4, Acts 17:24)

    We believe there is one Godhead that consists of three beings, the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ) and the Holy Spirit. (Genesis1:2, 26-27, John 1:1, Hebrews 1:3, John 17:21)

    Jesus:

    We believe that Jesus Christ is the only Son of God and has always existed. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. (John 1:1, John 3:16, Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:18-21, Luke 1:26-31)

    We believe Jesus lived a life without sin on earth in the flesh, and came to set the captives free. (1 Peter 2:22, 2 Corinthians 5:21, 1 John 3:5, Isaiah 61:1-2)

    We believe Jesus died for our sins and was resurrected from the dead, ascended to Heaven and now sits on the right hand of God.(1 Corinthians 15:5-8, Acts 1:9-11, Colossians 3:1)

    Church:

    We believe the Church is the people of God. Church is not a building, denomination, or religious organization. (1Timothy 3:15, Ephesians 1:22-23, 1 Corinthians 12:27)

    We believe that Jesus established the Church and has full authority. (Matthew 16:18-19)

    Ministry:

    We believe God chooses, calls and equips men and women to be in ministry. (1 Corinthians 12, Acts 10:34-35, Ephesians 2:10)

    Salvation:

    We believe that salvation is freely given by the grace of God through faith to anyone who repents for their sins, confess that Jesus is Lord, and believes God raised Jesus from the dead. (Romans 10:5-13, Ephesians 2:8-9, Acts 3:19, 1 John 1:9)

    Baptism:

    We believe in water baptism by immersion in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 3:11, 28:19, Acts 2:38, Mark 16:16, Acts 8:36-38)

    We believe in baptism in the Holy Spirit (Matthew 3:11, Acts 1:5)

    Lord’s Supper:

    We believe in partaking of the Lord’s Supper after self-examination as a memorial of the suffering death of Jesus Christ by eating bread and drinking grape juice as symbols of His body and Blood. (1 Corinthians 11:23-32)

    Marriage and Family:

    We believe that God ordained and established marriage and family as the first institution, and marriage is between one man and one woman. (Genesis 1:26-28, 2:18-25)

    Future:

    We believe in the second coming of Christ where He will return for His redeemed. (Acts 1:9-11, 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17)

    We believe there will be a final judgment day where everyone will be judged, both believers and unbelievers. (Romans 14:10-12, Hebrews 9:27, Revelation 20:11-15)

    We believe there will be a new Heaven and a new Earth. (Revelation 21:1)

  • Daily Scripture

    Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” So we may boldly say: “The LORD is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?” — Hebrews 13:5-6 (NKJV)
