Welcome

What We Believe

See the full version of our beliefs here.

I. GOD

We believe that there is only one true, living, and eternal God and that the Godhead is revealed as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

II. THE BIBLE

We believe that the Holy Scriptures are the Old and New Testaments. They are inspired by God and are without error. While other Christian literature is good, the Bible is the only reliable guide of Christian faith and conduct.

III. SALVATION

We believe that salvation has been provided through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and that this salvation can be received only through repentance toward God and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.

IV. THE CHURCH

We believe that the Church is the Body of Christ and that its members have been called out from the world to come under the authority of Christ, its head. We believe that a local church is a fellowship of Christians, a part of the Body of Christ, voluntarily banded together for worship, fighting sin together, taking care of one another, and service.
