Statement of faith


The Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16)


There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. (1 John 5:7)


We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and in His personal return for the Church, His Bride. (Colossians 2:9, Luke 1:34-35, Hebrews 4:15, Ephesians 1:7, 1 Peter 1:3, Hebrews 1:3, 1 Thessalonians 1:16-17) 


We believe that all who have been born again are members of the body of Christ, the Church. (John 3:3)


The only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious blood of Christ. (Luke 24:47, 1 Peter 1:18-21)


We believe that in order to be saved, we must be regenerated, or born again, by the power of the Holy Spirit in which the soul is made new in Christ Jesus. (Titus 3:5, John 3:3) The evidence is seen in a godly lifestyle and conversation. (Romans 6:22)


We believe in the resurrection of the saved and the lost, the one saved to everlasting life in the presence of a Holy God and the lost to everlasting damnation. (1 Corinthians 15:51-53)


We believe that the prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective. (James 5:16)


We believe that baptism is “an outward sign of inward grace”, that the duty to be baptized rests on the command of Jesus Christ. (Matthew 28:19)


We believe Jesus Christ instituted the ordinance of “The Lord’s Supper.” (Matthew 26:26-28). The Lord’s Supper is a symbol of Christ’s death and suffering (1 Corinthians 11:23-26) and is to be observed by His church until His return.


God has ordained marriage and defined it as the covenant relationship between one man, one woman, and Himself. (Gender as listed on their original birth certificate) (Genesis 2:18, 21-24; Ephesians 5:23-32; 1 Peter 3:1-5, 7; 1 Corinthians 7:1-2)


We believe that tithing (giving 10 percent of earnings) and offerings (amounts determined by the individuals) are God’s instruments to carry on His ministry, spread the gospel, and release personal blessing. (Malachi 3:10, 1 Corinthians 16: 1, 2)
