Our Core Beliefs
The entire Bible is the inspired Word of God given to us by the Spirit of God and penned through the hands of men. We believe the Bible to be without error or fault.
There is one God who exists in three distinct Persons (the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit). We believe that Jesus Christ is the second member of the Trinity (the Son of God) and that He became flesh to reveal God to man. We also believe that He ultimately offered His life as a sacrifice to reconcile the world to Himself.
Man was created in the image of God to have fellowship with Him, but became alienated from that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, we believe that man is totally incapable of coming back into a right relationship with God by his own effort.
The shed blood of Jesus Christ of the cross provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sins. Therefore, salvation only occurs when an individual places their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as the sufficient payment for their sin.
Living for Christ
Every Christian should live for Christ and not for themselves. We believe that by obedience to the Word of God and daily yielding to the Spirit of God, every believer can mature and be conformed to the image of Christ.
The church is the Body of Christ of which Jesus Christ is the head. We believe that its members are those who have trusted by faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ. We believe that the purpose of the church is to glorify God by loving Him, and making Him known in this world.
