What We Believe

God—We believe that there is one God who exists in three persons: the
Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Jesus—We believe that Jesus is the Son of God, was born of a virgin, was
wholly God and wholly man, lived a sinless life, died in our place as a
sacrifice for the sins of mankind, was buried, arose bodily from the grave,
and ascended into Heaven.

Christ’s Return—We believe that Jesus Christ will literally return to
earth.

Holy Spirit—We believe that God the Holy Spirit is active in convincing
unbelievers of their need for salvation, and is the Comforter and Guide
Who lives in every believer.

Bible—We believe that the Bible is the Word of God without any error,
the sole authority for life and faith.

Man—We believe that man is a special creation of God, made in His
image, but that through the sin of the first man, Adam, mankind fell so
that all men are sinners and need salvation.

Salvation—We believe that salvation is a gift received through
repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Assurance—We believe that every person who is truly saved is eternally
secure in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Eternity—We believe that those persons who die in their sins without
Christ spend eternity in Hell and those persons who die with their sins
forgiven through Christ spend eternity in Heaven.

Baptism—We believe that water baptism is an act of obedience to the
command of Christ and is by immersion after salvation.

Church—We believe that the church is a local body of baptized believers
with the Lord Jesus Christ as the Head.

Prayer—We believe that each believer has direct access to God through
the Lord Jesus Christ.

Government—We believe in the separation of church and state, but not
in separation of God and government. Christians are salt and light in
society.

Marriage-
We believe that marriage is a union between one man and one woman, following biblical principles (Gen. 2:19-24, Lev. 18:22, Matt. 19:4-6, Rom. 1:18-27, Eph. 5:22-33, Heb. 13:4).  We believe that God sanctions only the union in marriage of a man to a woman.
