Our Beliefs

What we believe bibleThe Bible

The Bible is the Word of God, fully inspired and without error in the original manuscripts, written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit; and that it has supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

 

The Trinity

There is but one true and living God who eternally exists in three co-equal and co-eternal persons:: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

 Salvation

Man was originally created in the image and after the likeness of God, but fell through sin. This sin caused a separation from God and total depravity of every man since the time of Adam. Jesus died for our sins and arose from the dead in the same body. No one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born again and no good work or deed can gain or earn the sinner even one step toward heaven. Once sinners place Jesus in His rightful place as Lord and Savior of their lives, a new nature is given and a new life is imparted by the Holy Spirit.

 The Church

The universal church of which Christ is the head, consists of all born-again believers. The local church consists of believers associated for worship, instruction, service and evangelism of a lost world.

 Ordinances

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ has committed two ordinances to the local church: baptism by immersion and communion to commemorate his death, burial and resurrection.

 Last Things

Jesus will return to earth in his visible resurrected body to establish his eternal kingdom. All born-again believers will receive a resurrected body and will have eternal life with Jesus. Unbelievers will have endless, conscious suffering separated from Jesus.
