One God as Three Persons
We believe in one God, Creator and Sustainer of the universe, who eternally exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:1, 26; Matthew 3:16-17 & 28:19; John 1:1-3; 14:6-20).
Jesus as Savior and the Head of the Church
We believe that Jesus Christ is the one and only Son of God who was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died for our sins, arose from the dead and now reigns with God in heaven. (John 3:16; 1 Corinthians 15:1-8).
We believe that it is essential to live a committed Christian life after accepting God’s gift of salvation (Romans 6:1-14; Ephesians 5:1-21; Colossians 3:1-17).
We believe that Jesus Christ will one day return to gather those who followed Him to their eternal destiny in heaven and to condemn those who did not follow Him to their eternal destiny in hell (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18).
The Holy Spirit as Counselor
We believe that the Holy Spirit is a gift from God to empower believers to live the Christian life (John 16:5-10; Acts 2:38; Romans 8:1-17; 1 Corinthians 12).
The Bible as God's Holy Word
We believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
All People as Loved Sinners
We believe that every person has worth as a creation of God, but all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Genesis 1:26,27; 3:1-3; Romans 3:23).
We believe that forgiveness of sins and eternal life are available to those who place their faith in Jesus Christ for his atoning sacrifice on the cross and resurrection from the dead. (John 3:16; Romans 5:1; Ephesians 2:8-9).
Baptism as Immersion
We believe that faith in Christ is expressed by believing in Jesus Christ, repenting of your sins, confessing Christ as Savior and Lord, and being baptized by immersion into Christ (Acts 2:38; Acts 16:31; Romans 10:9; Galatians 3:25-27; 1 Peter 2:20-21).
Christians as Disciples who make Disciples
We believe that the Church is the body of Christ on earth, empowered by the Holy Spirit and exists to exalt God, evangelize the lost, and encourage, edify, and equip the saved (Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 2:36-47).
