What We Believe
We believe in God the Father Almighty, Creator of all things visible and invisible.
We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s one and only Son, our one and only Savior.
⚬ Who was born Jesus of Nazareth, both fully human and fully divine, conceived of the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary.
⚬ Who suffered and was crucified under Pontius Pilate.
⚬ Who died and was buried and who rose again bodily from the dead on the third day.
⚬ Who ascended into heaven and now sits at the right hand of the Father.
⚬ Who will return to earth to judge both the living and the dead.
We believe in the Holy Spirit who is an active person of the Trinity, and who indwells every Christian.
We believe in the Bible—God’s Holy Word, Scripture. We believe God inspired the autographs (original writings) of the Scripture and those autographs were consequently without error.
We accept the Bible as the final authority for all matter of faith and practice.
We believe the Bible teaches that our willful sin alienates us from God, from ourselves, from one another and from creation and that we are without hope apart from Jesus Christ.
We believe in the Gospel—the Good News of Salvation.
⚬ That man, created by God, willfully sinned against God and is consequently lost and without hope apart from Jesus Christ.
⚬ That salvation—the forgiveness of sins—is only by grace through the blood of Jesus Christ.
⚬ That one receives salvation by putting faith in Christ, repenting of sin, and confessing Christ, and
that the Bible commands every believer in Christ to be baptized by immersion.
We believe that those who have received salvation through faith in Jesus Christ are sent into the world to proclaim the gospel and to love and serve the world just as Jesus Himself did.
We believe in the Church, founded on the day of Pentecost and consisting of all Christians everywhere.
