What We Believe

About God

We believe in the one true God.  He is omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent, creator, sustainer, protector, and the sovereign ruler of all.  We believe that He is one God in three persons.

God The Father
We believe that God the Father is the sovereign ruler of the universe. With faith in Christ Jesus and true repentance, all who call upon the name of Lord will be saved, thus being called children of God.

God The Son
We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God.  He was born of a virgin, walked among men teaching, healing, and performing many other miracles.  We believe Christ, in perfect submission to the Father, is the only redeemer of man by dying on the cross and by resurrection from the grave.  He is seated at the right hand of God the Father.

God the Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit is fully divine just as God The Father and God The Son.  The Holy Spirit illuminates and enables man to understand truth.  He is at work convicting man of sin and leading them to follow Christ Jesus.  He also enables those in Christ to develop their spiritual gifts to serve God through His church.  He seals the believer as a fellow heir in righteousness for eternity.

About Man

We believe that Man was created by God in His own image.  He created both male and female for His glory.  He purposed man to have dominion over all other creation.  In the beginning man was faithful to God with freedom of choice.  It was through man’s free choice that man chose to sin.  It was through this disobedience to God that man brought separation between God and man which inherits a nature of perpetual sin. 

About The Bible

We believe the Bible was written by men who were divinely inspired by God to be His spoken words to man.  It is perfectly complete and without error.  The Bible is a divine revelation centered on the testimony of Christ the redeemer of man.

About Marriage and Family

We believe that the family is ordained by God to be a foundation of society and to be the first place for biblical discipleship.  We believe that biblical marriage is comprised of man and woman committed in covenant for a lifetime in holy matrimony.  Husbands and wives were created equal in the image of God.  The husband is to love his wife as Christ loves the church.  In the home the man is commissioned by God to be prophet, priest, and king.  The wife is to submit herself graciously to the servant leadership of her husband just as the church submits to the headship of Christ.  In the home she has the God-given responsibility to respect her husband in service as his helper in care of the home and nurturing of their children.  Parents are instructed to model and lead their children in the Lord.  Children are a blessing from the Lord.  They are meant for spiritual legacy in the primary biblical discipleship plan.  Children are to honor and obey their father and mother.

About The Church

We believe that the Church is the bride of Christ known only by Him.  Her purpose is to serve Him in submissiveness for the glory of God.  We also believe in the local church and its purposes.

The Local Church
We believe the local church is a body of believers who are submissive in covenant to the sovereignty God through the obedience to His word.  The church’s purpose is the equipping, encouraging, and enabling believers to be at work for the gospel to all ends of the earth.

About Salvation

Salvation is redemption from the judgment of God the Father for the whole of man. It is offered freely to all who believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God who was raised from the dead and confess Him as Lord by repenting of their sin and committing their lives to Him. Salvation includes regeneration, justification, sanctification, and glorification. There is no salvation apart from personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord.
