what we believe...


God

There is one and only one living and true God. He is an intelligent, spiritual, and personal Being, the Creator, Redeemer, Preserver, and Ruler of the universe. God is infinite in holiness and all other perfections. To Him we owe the highest love, reverence, and obedience. God as Father reigns with providential care over His universe, His creatures, and the flow of the stream of human history according to the purposes of His grace. He is all powerful, all loving, and all wise. God is Father in truth to those who become children of God through faith in Jesus Christ. He is fatherly in His attitude toward all people.


Jesus Christ
We believe that Jesus Christ is God in the flesh, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He is completely God and completely man. He lived a sinless life, and he died on the cross as a sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. Further, He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, where at the right hand of the Father, He now is our High Priest and Advocate.


The Trinity
We believe in one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons-Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.


The Bible

The human authors of the Bible were uniquely inspired by the Spirit of God. His guidance led them to record His truth. The Bible is authoritative for every believer and it provides the counsel of God for everyday life.


Sin
We believe that mankind was created in the image of God but fell into sin and is therefore separated from God both physically and spiritually and only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained.


The Church
We believe in the church, both universally and locally, as the spiritual body of which Christ is the Head, and in the practices of water baptism by immersion of believers and the Lord’s Supper as the ordinances of the local church.


Salvation
We believe in salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ’s substitutionary payment for our sins, not based on human merit, works, or religious ceremony. We believe that anyone who has placed their faith in Christ is eternally secure, has everlasting life, will not come into condemnation, and shall never perish. We believe that assurance comes to the believer from three primary sources: trusting the Word of God’s promises, the witness of the Holy Spirit, and a persevering walk with the Lord.


The Great Commission
We believe that those whom God has saved are sent into the world by Christ as He was by the Father. Those so sent are ambassadors, commissioned to go make disciples and make Christ known to the whole world. We also believe that everyone should have an opportunity to carefully examine the facts about Christ and have an opportunity to make an intelligent decision about Him.


Stewardship

God has blessed us with earthly resources. We are to honor Him in how we handle our money and our possessions. As obedient stewards we are to invest our time, talents and treasures regularly in the work of God’s Kingdom.



VISION: WE ARE ROOTED IN FAITH, BOUND TOGETHER BY GOD'S LOVE


MISSION: WE WILL SOW SEEDS OF LOVE IN JESUS'S NAME
