Our Beliefs

Our Beliefs

We believe... that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.  Distinct in relationship, the three persons of the trinity are fully God and are one in essence and purpose.
(Genesis 1:26, Deuteronomy  6:4, Mark 1:9-11)


We believe... in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, sinless life, vicarious death and in His bodily resurrection. 
(Matthew 1:18-23, 1 Corinthians 15:1-8, Acts 1:9-11)


We believe... the Bible to be the inspired and infallible Word of God.  It is the final authority for Christian faith and practice.
(2 Timothy  3:15 - 17, 2 Peter 1:19 - 21)


We believe... in salvation by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.  Through personal  repentance and faith in Jesus Christ's finished work on the cross, we are  forgiven our sins, reborn by the Holy Spirit and restored into fellowship with  God. 
(John 3:16-17, Romans 5:8-12)


We believe... because God gives man eternal life through Jesus Christ, the believer is secure in salvation for eternity. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian. 
(John 10:29; 2 Timothy 1:12; Hebrews 7:25; 10:10, 14; 1 Peter 1:3-5)


We believe... in the return of the Lord Jesus Christ and the establishment of his eternal kingdom.  This is the blessed hope of the  Church and its encouragement for perseverance in faith and ministry. Those who  have been reborn in Christ will live with Him forever .
(John 14:1-3, Matthew 24:29-31, Revelation 19:11-21)


We believe... baptism by immersion symbolizes the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus and is your public declaration that you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior. Baptism does not save you, but shows the world that you have already been saved. And while baptism is not required for salvation, it is a biblical command and demonstrates your love and obedience to Christ. 
(Colossians 2:12; Acts 2:41; Ephesians 2: 8-9; Matthew 28:19-20)


We believe... Communion, or the Lord’s Supper, is an ordinance given to all believers by Jesus Christ to remember his sacrifice for us and to symbolize the new covenant. The elements of bread and wine or juice are symbols of Christ’s broken body and shed blood. Communion is not a means of salvation. Rather, it is a testament of a believer’s faith in the atoning work of the cross. 
(Matthew 26:26-30; Mark 14:22-26; Luke 22:19,20; 1 Corinthians 11:23-29)
