What We Believe

We believe that the Bible is the divinely inspired Word of God.

We believe that there is only one true God, Creator of heaven and earth, who eternally exists in three distinct persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, all sharing equally in the same nature and majesty of the Godhead.

We believe that Jesus Christ is God incarnate, the only begotten Son of God, fully God and fully man, conceived by the Holy Spirit, and born of the virgin Mary. He lived a sinless life, was crucified, shed His blood and died as an atonement for the sins of man, arose in bodily resurrection, and ascended to the right hand of God the Father.

We believe in the future physical resurrection of the dead, righteous believers to a resurrection of eternal life, and unbelievers to a resurrection of judgment and condemnation.

We believe in the scriptural imperatives of repentance, forgiveness of sins, faith toward God, water baptism for the remission of sin and the circumcision of heart, and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit through the baptism of the Holy Spirit.

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit who, through His indwelling, enables the Christian to live a godly life.

We believe in the operation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit in the church. We believe these gifts are enablements distributed freely by the Holy Spirit to every member of the body of Christ according to His will. We also believe that God appointed ministries in the church, the community of believers, for the equipping of the saints and the building up of the body of Christ.
