What We Believe

We believe in the God of the Bible and that He made everything that is out of nothing by His design.

We believe that God loves His creation, including sinful, disobedient men and women.

We believe the Bible is God’s revelation to us and that it alone is the final authority for both what we believe and how we are to live.

We believe there is one God who has chosen to express himself in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe God came to earth in flesh, born of a virgin, lived a life of perfect obedience and without sin, then willingly gave his own body as a sacrificial payment for the sins of every person of all ages. We believe Jesus was raised from the dead three days later defeating death, the enemy of every person.

We believe that Jesus Christ the Son of God is the only way to the Father and eternal life and that all of those who are willing to turn from their sins and put their trust in Jesus are given eternal life and the righteousness of Jesus as a free gift. We believe that those who believe with all their hearts the claims of the good news about Jesus should immediately be immersed in water. Believer’s baptism is the formal acceptance of God’s gracious offer, where for a moment in time a person completely surrenders control to another by reenacting the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. In baptism we bury the old man and are raised to new life in Christ.

We believe every Christian is of equal worth and deserves equal dignity and that all who claim Jesus as Lord should be treated as family unless their lives prove they are impostors.

We believe Jesus will return for those who love Him (and those who have died loving Him) and that all of those will receive bodies like His own body and will live forever.

We believe that those who have rejected God’s love to them will face His wrath against sin and that their end will be the lake of fire and perishing.

We believe our present task is to live lives of humility and holiness, loving others as Christ has loved us, making Christ known at every opportunity until He comes or we go to meet Him.

We believe that every person from every age who will finally be with God the Father and Jesus Christ in eternity will be there only because of what God has done in the person and work of Jesus. We boast only in Him!
