What Do We Believe?

God

There is only one true and living God. The eternal God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes.

God the Father

God the Father reigns over all of His creation according to the purposes of His grace. God is Father to those who become His children through faith in Jesus Christ.

God the Son

Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He lived a sinless life, died a sacrificial death, and defeated death, Hell, and the grave so that mankind could be reconciled with God.

God the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is fully divine. He exalts Christ, convicts mankind of sin, and leads believers down the path of righteousness. He comforts believers in times of trouble and empowers the Church in worship, evangelism, and service.

The Scriptures

The Bible is the truth written by men and Divinely inspired by God. Therefore all scripture is without error and is completely trustworthy. It serves as a revelation of God, is the ultimate authority for morality, and points to the salvation that comes through Jesus Christ.

Man

Mankind is the crowning work of God's creation. God created man and women in his image, with the purpose of glorifying Him, having dominion over His creation, being in relationship with Him and others, and multiplying to fill the earth. God gave mankind the free will to live according to those purposes. However, mankind rebelled against God, and Sin separated them from God.

Salvation

The consequence of sin is physical and eternal death. However, because of the grace and mercy of God, God sent Jesus to live, die in our place, and defeat death, to reconcile mankind to God. Any person who acknowledges Jesus as their Savior and repents of their sin will be forgiven of all sin and given the gift of eternal life.

Baptism & the Lord’s Supper

Christian Baptism is the immersion of a believer in water. It is an act of obedience declaring the believer’s faith in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. It is symbolic of the believer’s death to sin, the burial of the old life, and the resurrection to a new life in Christ Jesus.

The Lord’s Supper is a symbolic act of obedience. Jesus calls his followers to partake in this act in remembrance of his body being broken and blood being shed and calls us to do so until He returns.

Evangelism & Missions

It is the duty and privilege of every follower of Christ to make disciples of all nations, and to seek constantly to win the lost. Doing so by, the way they live their life, verbally sharing the gospel, and intentionally reaching those of every tongue and nation.

Stewardship

God is the source of all blessings; all that we have, and are we owe to Him. Believers are therefore called to serve Him with their time, talents, and possessions.
