What We Believe

About the word of God (the Bible)

We believe that:

All scripture was inspired by God and includes the actual words of Jesus Christ as recorded by men who were moved by the Holy Spirit to compose the scriptures we now read in completion in the Bible.

All of the Bible is without error and includes different perspectives of the actual life of Jesus Christ.

The Bible is full of mystery, but God has assured us will not return void on his promise to guide us along the way.

About God himself

We believe that:

God is a single entity that exists in three distinct persons (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit).

Jesus Christ, the second member of the Trinity, the Son of God, lived and died and rose again in victory to become the Savior of the world, providing all of us with the opportunity to have a personal relationship with God.

About a Personal Relationship with God

We believe that:

The only thing that redeems us of our sins is the blood of Jesus Christ, that was shed on the cross not for one person or group of people alone, but for all people.

The only way to have salvation and the forgiveness of sins is to admit that we all sin and are not worthy of salvation, believe that even though we did not deserve salvation, Christ loved us so much that he freely gave of his life to atone for all of the world’s sin, past and present, and finally confess that Jesus is the Lord of your life.

About the responsibility of Christ-Followers

We believe that:

We are called to emulate the life of Christ by living not for ourselves, but by dedicating our every day to glorifying God, reading his word, praying, and submitting to the Holy Spirit.

Every believer should seek to mature in their walk with the Lord, growing closer to the example Christ gave through his own life.

We are called to go and teach others what we have learned about Christ and disciple them in their own walk with the Lord (Matthew 28:19-20).

About the Church

We believe that:

The church is the body of believers (or as scripture relates, “the bride of Christ”, of which Jesus Christ is the leader) that serves to extend the work of Jesus through carrying the gospel to the world (Isaiah 61:1-4).

Every follower of Christ has been specifically gifted with a unique purpose and talents to glorify God and to share his message of hope with the world.

About Baptism

We believe that:

Baptism is an outward proclamation of an inward change where believers identify with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

This is not a part of salvation, but rather signifies the salvation of a believer and their proclamation to live a life that reflects Christ.

Baptism should only be done by someone who has accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior.
