Our Beliefs

We are conservative in our beliefs.

We believe the Bible is God’s Word. It is the inerrant, infallible Word of God. It is the living Word of God without any mixture of error. The Bible is intended to bring people to salvation, to place our lives on a firm foundation, and to help us live consistent Christian lives. 


God

We believe that there is one God who exists in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Genesis 1:1 ; Matthew 3:17 ; John 4:24

 

Jesus

We believe that Jesus is the Son of God, was born of a virgin, was wholly God and wholly man, lived a sinless life, died in our place as a sacrifice for the sins of mankind, was buried, arose bodily from the grave, and ascended into Heaven.

Matthew 11:27 ; John 11:25-27 ; 1 Corinthians 1:30

 

Christ’s·Return

We believe that Jesus Christ will literally return to earth.

Matthew 16:27 ; Acts 1:11 ; 1 Thessalonians 4:14-18

 

Holy∙Spirit

We believe that God the Holy Spirit is active in convincing unbelievers of their need for salvation, and is the Comforter and Guide Who lives in every believer.

Psalm 51:11 ; John 14:16-17

 

Bible

We believe that the Bible is the Word of God without any error, the sole authority for life and faith.

Psalm 119:11 ; Luke 21:33 ; 2 Timothy 3:15-17

 

Man

We believe that man is a special creation of God, made in His image, but that through the sin of the first man, Adam, mankind fell so that all men are sinners and need salvation.

Genesis 2:7 ; Romans 3:10-18 ; Colossians 1:21-22

 

Salvation

We believe that salvation is a gift received through repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

John 3:16 ; Acts 4:12 ; Romans 10:9-10

 

Assurance

We believe that every person who is truly saved is eternally secure in the Lord Jesus Christ.

John 10:28-29 ; Acts 16:30-31 ; 2 Corinthians 5:17

 

Eternity

We believe that those persons who die in their sins without Christ spend eternity in Hell and those persons who die with their sins forgiven through Christ spend eternity in Heaven.

John 14:1-3 ; 1 Corinthians 15:35-58 ; 1 Thessalonians 4:14-18

 

Baptism

We believe that water baptism is an act of obedience to the command of Christ and is by immersion after salvation.

Mark 1:9-11 ; Matthew 28:19-20 ; Romans 6:3-5

 

Church

We believe that the church is a local body of baptized believers with the Lord Jesus Christ as the Head.

Matthew 16:15-19 ; Acts 2:41-42 ; Ephesians 1:22-23

 

Prayer

We believe that each believer has direct access to God through the Lord Jesus Christ.

Matthew 6:5,6 ; Romans 8:26 ; James 5:16

 

Government

We believe in the separation of church and state, but not in separation of God and government. christians are salt and light in society.

Matthew 22:21 ; Romans 13:1-7 ; 1 Peter 2:12-17
