What we believe

We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, Creator and Ruler of heaven and earth and everything that exists both seen and unseen, who is revealed as the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, each equal in every Divine perfection.

We believe in Jesus Christ, the only begotten son of God; that Christ was born of the virgin Mary; that Christ suffered and died for the sins of all who believe; that Christ was buried and rose physically from the dead on the third day; that Christ ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of the Majesty on high;  that salvation is only through Jesus Christ the Lord; that salvation in its beginning, continuance and completion is God's free gift; that eternal salvation is of the Lord; that Christ was the Word made flesh; that Christ perfectly obeyed the law; that Christ was both God and man; that Christ will come again to gather his elect to be with Himself; that in Christ we (from every tribe and language and people and nation) are God's elect from eternity; called out from the world, not according to our works but according to God's own purpose and grace;  that Jesus Christ is the only mediator between God and mankind; that Jesus Christ is the way, the truth and the life and no one can come to God except by Him.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets. We believe the Holy Spirit indwells, teaches and guides all who receive Christ.

We believe the Holy Scriptures, the sixty six books that make up the canon of Scripture, is the infallible, inerrant Word of God which is able to make us wise unto salvation and the only rule of faith and practice for the church of Christ.  We believe that the Holy Scriptures should be believed as written.  We believe that adding to or taking from the words and context of Scripture is wrong.

We believe that Adam's sin brought condemnation and death to himself and all mankind; that all of mankind is born into spiritual death and are in need of salvation; that only God who is Sovereign can remove the sinner from darkness into His marvelous light; that only God can make the dead come to life both spiritually and physically.

We believe in the free offer of eternal life in the gospel to all and the aggravated guilt of all those who reject Christ.

We believe in the necessity of being born again by the Holy Spirit, as Jesus told Nicodemus; of redemption from sin; of repentance toward God and faith in Christ.

We believe each believer is redeemed, justified and adopted into God's family through the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

We believe Christ commanded the church to observe two ordinances or sacraments; the Lord's Supper and baptism; the Lord's Supper is open to all who believe in Christ; that baptism should be by immersion and performed upon one's confession of faith in Christ.

We believe the church should meet on the Lord's day (upon the first day of the week) with other believers to worship our Savior, God and King.

We believe that when this present life ends every true believer will enter at once into conscious blessedness with the Lord and all others into torment and eternal separation from God.

We believe in the resurrection of the body; the righteous to eternal life at the coming of Christ; the wicked to eternal punishment after the 1000 reign of Christ on earth.

We believe that marriage should be between one man and one woman.

We believe that gender is determined at birth and cannot be changed.

We believe that homosexuality is sinful and an abomination to God but that anyone who receives Jesus and repents can be saved.
