What We Believe
We believe in the triune God of the Bible. We believe that God created the universe and that he created man (male and female) in his own image. Because of our disobedience to God (sin) we need help from God (redemption). Jesus, the God/man, who lived and died and on a cross in Jerusalem, gave his life for us so that we might know and have fellowship with God. We believe that Jesus is coming again to judge the earth and establish his kingdom.
The Bible, both Old and New Testaments, to be the verbally inspired word of God; the supreme and final authority in faith and life.
That there is but one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
That Jesus of Nazareth was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, and is true God and true man.
That man was created in the image of God; that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death, but spiritual death which is separation from God; that all human beings are born with a sinful nature and that those who reach moral responsibility still sin in thought, word and deed.
That Jesus was the Christ; that His death provided atonement for man's sin and that all who place their faith in Him as Lord and Savior are justified before God.
That Jesus rose from the dead, ascended to heaven, and is coming again to reign on earth.
That all who place their faith in Jesus Christ are immediately baptized by the Holy Spirit into one united spiritual body, the Church; that the establishment and continuity of local churches is clearly taught in the New Testament; that the members of this one spiritual community are directed to associate themselves together in local assemblies.
That all who place their faith in Jesus Christ are regenerated spiritually by the Holy Spirit and thus become children of God.
That all who place their faith in Jesus Christ are to demonstrate their obedience through participation in baptism and the Lord's Supper.
In the bodily resurrection of all men and women to face the righteous judgment of God, the saved to eternal life and the unsaved to everlasting separation from God and punishment.
