Statement of Faith

Bible

We believe the Bible is inspired by God and is perfect and complete without any error.  God gave it to us as a guide for salvation and for everyday life.  We believe the King James is God's preserved Word for English speaking people. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

God

We believe there is One God Who exists in a Triune Nature of three co-equal and co-eternal personalities, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19; 1 John 5:7)

Jesus

We believe Jesus is the Savior of all mankind Who loves you so much that He was willing to die in your place on the Cross.  Jesus is the Creator God Who left Heaven and came to Earth to be born of a virgin so that He as both man and God could pay the infinite price of sin for us. He is the only way of salvation.  (Matthew 1:20-23; John 1:1-3,14; 1 Timothy 3:16; John 14:6; Acts 4:12; Hebrews 2:9)

Salvation

We believe salvation is entirely by grace through faith in Jesus Christ (Ephesians 2:8-9) and believers are eternally secure (saved forever).  You receive the free gift of salvation by believing on Christ.  (1 Peter 1:5 John 10:27-30; John 3:16)

Resurrection

We believe Jesus Christ arose from the dead literally and bodily, thus guaranteeing that all who trust him as Savior will also live again and have eternal life in  Heaven to which Christ ascended. (John 11:25-26; 1 Corinthians 15:1-8, 51-57)

Creation

We believe that God created the world and the universe in 6 literal days exactly as described in Genesis chapters 1 & 2.  (Exodus 20:11; Psalm 100:3; Colossians 1:16-17)

Eternity

We believe that there is a literal Heaven (that is better than anything the human mind can imagine) and also a literal Hell where those who reject Christ’s love will suffer for eternity. (John 14:1-3; 1 Corinthians 2:9; Matthew 25:46; Revelation 20:14-15)

Baptism

We believe every believer in Jesus Christ is to be baptized by immersion as a public testimony of their faith in Christ and as a symbol of the death, burial and resurrection of Christ.  (Acts 8:35-39)

Church

We believe a church is a body of baptized believers, separated from worldly and sinful practices whose mission is to preach and teach the Gospel of salvation.   (2 Corinthians 6:17; Matthew 28:18-20)
