Our Beliefs

Statement of Faith/Doctrinal Statement

Purpose: To provide a loving and comfortable environment to effectively minister to the spiritual and physical needs of our community, to the glory of Jesus Christ, thus fulfilling the Great Commission as recorded in Matthew 28: 18-20, we adopt the following articles:


We believe the Bible is the Word of God, inerrant and inspired in its original autographs, a complete and final revelation of God. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:19-21; Revelation 2:18-19).

We believe in one God, personal and knowable, Who eternally exists in three person, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19; Deuteronomy 6:4; John 6:27; 1 John 5:7, 20; 2 Corinthians 13:14).

We believe that Jesus Christ is God manifest in the flesh, born of a virgin, without sin, and the chosen Messiah Who will one day set up His kingdom on Earth. (Isaiah 7:14; John 1:14; John 20:30-31; 1 Timothy 3:16; Hebrews 4:15; Revelation 11:15; Revelation 19:1-16; Revelation 20:1-6).

We believe that God the Holy Spirit is sovereign in the bestowing of all His gifts for the perfecting of the saints today and that speaking in tongues and the working of sign miracles in the beginning days of the church were for the purpose of pointing to and authenticating the apostles as revealers of divine truth and were never intended to be characteristic of the lives of believers today.  (1 Corinthians 12:4-11; 13:8-10; 2 Corinthians 12:12; Ephesians 4:7-12; Hebrews 2:1-4)

We believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins, was buried, rose again from the dead, ascended back into heaven, and will one day return to this earth again. (1 John 2:2; 1 John 4:10; 1 Corinthians 15:1-28; 1 Corinthians 15:50-58; Acts 1:9-11; John 14:1-3).

We believe that  all persons are sinners, guilty before God, deserving of judgment, and in need of a savior, Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 3:19-26; Romans 5:12-21; Romans 6:23; 1 John 4:14-15).

We believe that salvation from sin, death, and hell, is by God’s grace, based on the work of Jesus Christ alone, and is received by faith apart from any human performance of merit. (John 14:6; Acts 16:31; Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 3:28).

We believe that all believers in Jesus Christ are baptized, sealed, and indwelt by the Holy Spirit, and that He fills those believers who obey God and separate from sinful habits and lifestyles. (Acts 2:38; Titus 3:5-6; 1 Corinthians 6:19-20; 1 Corinthians 12:13; Ephesians 1:13-14).

We believe that eternal life is a gift of God and that nothing can separate the believer from the love of God. (1 John 5:11-13; John 10:28-29; Romans 8:38-39).

We believe in the eternal punishment of the unbeliever, and in the eternal life of the believer. (Matthew 25:46; 1 Thessalonians 1:8-10; Revelation 20:1-15).

We believe that all believers should assemble in local churches for mutual edification, encouragement, evangelism, service and worship. (Hebrews 1:24-25; Acts 2:41-47; MAtthew 18:20).

We believe that two ordinances have been given to the church, that of baptism by immersion and the observance of the Lord’s Supper. (Acts 2:38; Acts 8:36-38; Acts 10:47; Luke 22:19-20; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26).
