What We Believe

We believe the Bible was inspired by the Holy Spirit and is infallible.

We believe that the One True God exists in three persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

We believe Jesus to be God and became flesh by a virgin birth.  We believe in His sinless life, His miracles, His substitutionary death for our sins, His bodily resurrection and ascension.  We believe Jesus will return on day in power and glory.

We believe in an essential and eternal salvation by grace alone can only be received as a gift of God through faith in Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord.

We believe in the one true church as the Body of Christ, made up of believers who are being equipped to do the work of ministry.  We believe the church is locally autonomous and functions through worship, fellowship, discipleship, ministry and evangelism.  We believe in two church ordinances; a believer's baptism and the Lord's Supper (Communion).

We believe in the Gospel of Jesus Christ and believe it should be presented, preached and shared with all people everywhere.  We believe it is the privilege of believers to engage in mission and discipleship locally, nationally and internationally.
