What We Believe

We believe the Bible is the inspired, infallible and authoritative Word of God. It is the Church's only infallible and completely trustworthy rule of faith and life.

We believe that there is one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe in that our Lord Jesus Christ was at the same time fully divine and fully human.

We believe in His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His death that paid the price for our sin, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His future return to this earth in power and glory to rule over the nations.

We believe that apart from Jesus Christ, all people are spiritually lost and because of sin, deserve the judgment of God. (Romans 3:23) However, God gives salvation and eternal life to anyone who trusts in Jesus Christ and His sacrifice on their behalf. (John 3:16) Salvation cannot be earned through personal goodness or human effort. (Ephesians 2:8-9) It is a gift that must be received by humble repentance and faith in Christ and His finished work on the cross.

We believe that trusting in what Jesus accomplished on the cross for us and new life by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal salvation.

We believe in the Spirit-filled life. It is as we are filled by God's Holy Spirit that the Christian is given the power to live a victorious and joyful life -- a life marked by the fruit of the Spirit: "love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control" (Galatians 5:22-23).

We believe the local church is a Christ-centered community of believers who gather for worship, prayer, instruction, encouragement, mutual accountability, and fellowship with each other. Through the church, believers invest time, energy, and resources to help fulfill the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20).

We believe that the local church is the hope of the world. We desire to reach out to people with God's love and to help them grow to be passionate followers of Christ until the day when Christ returns to take us home to be with Him in heaven forever.
