Our Beliefs

Our Beliefs

1. We believe the Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired Word of God, without error in their original writings. 2 Timothy 3:16-17.

2. We believe in one God, creator of all things, who exists in three persons; God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Genesis 1:1, Matthew 3:16-17, Matthew 28:19.

3. We believe that Jesus Christ is true God and became true man, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. We believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross as the sacrifice for our sins and, according to Scripture, rose from the dead and ascended into heaven, and that He is at the right hand of God on high as our high priest and advocate. Matthew 1:21-22, Mark 16:19, Romans 8:34.

4. We believe that Adam and Eve, God’s first creation, were created in the image of God and fell into sin. Man is therefore lost and only through accepting Jesus Christ and his death on the cross as payment for our sins are we forgiven and justified before God. Romans 5:12-18, Acts 4:10-12, John 3:16

5. We believe that acceptance of the shed blood of Jesus Christ by his death on the cross and his resurrection from the dead, provides the only grounds for receiving God’s forgiving grace and justification. Inviting Jesus into our life provides the way of salvation. John 3:16, Acts 4:12, Romans 10:9-11

6. We believe in the blessed assurance of the literal return of our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, Acts 1:11, John 14:1-3

7. We believe that the true Church is comprised of all believers who have put their faith in Jesus Christ and accepted him as Lord and Savior. Romans 10:9-10

8. We believe that all true believers should partake in baptism by immersion as soon as practical after receiving Christ as their personal Savior and Lord . Matthew 3:13-17, 28:19, Acts 8:36-38

9. We believe that communion is a memorial service, setting forth in a sacred and symbolic manner the death of our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 11:23-26

10. We believe that sanctification, following justification, is the continual progressive growth and experience process of Christian living under the guidance and leading of the Holy Spirit, into a deeper relationship with Christ, with resulting evidence based upon Scripture.
