What We Believe:
About the Scriptures - We believe the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God, and that men were moved by the Spirit to write the very words of scripture. Therefore, the Bible is truth from God inerrantly revealing His will concerning our salvation and life in Christ.
About God - We believe in one God, whom exists in three persons revealed as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ is the second member of the Trinity (the Son of God) who became flesh to reveal God to man and to become the Savior to our lost world.
About Mankind - 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, we are totally incapable of coming back into a right relationship with God by our own efforts.
About Salvation - 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 their faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ as the sufficient payment for their sins.
About the Christian Life - We believe that every Christian should live for Christ and not for himself. By obedience to the Word of God and daily yielding to the Holy Spirit 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 in the finished work of Christ. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by loving Him and by making Him known to a lost world.
