What we believe

Biblical Authority

The Bible is the final authority in all matters of belief and practice because the Bible is inspired by God and bears the absolute authority of God Himself.
2 Timothy 3:15-17; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Peter 1:20, 21

Salvation

Genesis 1:1 tells us “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” Part of God’s creation on the 6th day was man and woman. They lived as God’s perfect children until they fell to Satan’s temptation. The sin of Adam and Eve was rebellion against God that brought death, suffering and separation from God into this world. Because of Adam’s sin, everyone is sinful from Conception (Psalm 51:5) and has entered into this rebellion (sin). We cannot live with a holy God, but are condemned to separation from God. The Bible tells us in Romans 3:23 that “all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Thus, everyone is subject to “everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power” (2 Thessalonians 1:9). However, the good news is that God shows his mercy to mankind by providing a Savior! John 3:16 says “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”Jesus Christ died on the cross to pay the penalty of Mankind’s sin. He did this because of His love for you! Jesus was the perfect sacrifice. Three days after his death, he rose from the dead!

Jesus conquered death so that everyone who truly believe in Him, genuinely turns from their sin and trusts in Christ, are able to become a member of God’s family and live for eternity with Him in heaven. Romans 6:23 tells us that “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

If you are not absolutely sure that you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, please contact us to learn more about how you can be sure  you are a Christian.

Creation

We believe that the Bible teaches in the book of Genesis that one God (the Father, Son & Holy Spirit) created everything in 6 literal days. The seventh day being a day of rest.

Two Ordinances

The local church should practice two ordinances: (1) baptism of believers by immersion in water, identifying the individual with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection, and (2) the Lord’s Supper, or communion, commemorating His death for our sins. Neither of these ordinances can save an individual; but rather are an outward testimony of salvation and a remembrance of Christ’s sacrifice on the cross.
Matthew 28:19, 20; 1 Corinthians 11:23-32
