About the Bible:
We believe the entire Bible is the inspired word of God and that men were inspired by the Holy Spirit to write the words of Scripture. Therefore we believe that the Bible is without error as written in the original languages.
We believe in one God who exists in three distinct persons; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ is the second member of the Trinity, the Son of God and that He became flesh to reveal God to man and to become the Savior of the lost world.
We believe that man was created in the image of God to have fellowship with Him, but became alienated from that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, man is totally incapable of coming back into a right relationship with God by his own effort.
We believe that the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sins. Therefore, salvation only occurs when a person places his faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as the sufficient payment for his sin.
We believe that baptism is not necessary for salvation. However, we believe that after accepting Christ as Lord and Savior, all new Christians should follow the example of Jesus by being baptized as a way of publicly identifying with Him.
About the Christian Life:
We believe that every Christian should live for Christ and not for himself by obedience to the Word and daily yielding to the Holy Spirit and that every believer should mature and become conformed to the image of Christ.
About the Church:
We believe that the church is the body of Christ of which Jesus Christ is the head. The members are those who have trusted by faith the finished work of Christ. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by loving Him and by making Him known to those lost without Him.
