Statement of Faith

  • We believe in one God—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Matthew 5:16,45; 6:1,4,8,9; James 1:17/John 1:1; 14:9/Genesis 1:2; John 4:24; 14:16-20; 2 Peter 1:21).
  • We believe in God the Father Almighty, Creator of all things visible and invisible (Genesis 1:1; Acts 17:24-28; Hebrews 11:3).
  • We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s one and only Son, my one and only Savior (John 1:14; 1 John 4:9/John 3:16; 2 Peter 3:18)…
    • Who was born Jesus of Nazareth, both fully human and fully divine, conceived of the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary (Matthew 21:11; John 19:19/John 1:14; Romans 5;15-17; Colossians 2:9; 1 John 1:1/Matthew 1:18; Luke 1:26-38).
    • Who suffered and was crucified under Pontius Pilate (Luke 23:1-46).
    • Who died and was buried, and Who rose again bodily from the dead on the third day (Luke 23:44 – 24:8; John 20:24-29; 1 Corinthians 15:3-8).
    • Who ascended into Heaven and now sits at the right hand of the Father (Luke 22:69; Acts 1:1-9; Colossians 3:1).
    • Who will return to earth to judge both the living and the dead (Matthew 24:36-42; John 14:1-3, Acts 1:10-11; 10:39-42; 1 Peter 4:5).
  • We believe in the Holy Spirit…
    • Who is an active and operative part of the triune God (John 16:5-15; Acts 1:7-8; Romans 8:26-27).
    • Who indwells every Christian (1 Corinthians 3:16; 6:19; 2 Timothy 1:14).
  • We believe in the Bible—God’s Holy Word, Scripture. We believe God inspired the autographs (original writings) of the Scripture and those autographs were consequently without error (Mark 12:36; John 14:26; 16:12-15; Acts 1:16; 1 Corinthians 2:12-13; 2 Timothy 3:14-16; 2 Peter 1:20-21).
  • We accept the Bible as the final authority for all matters of faith and practice (Isaiah 40:8; Matthew 5:18; 24:35; Romans 15:4; Hebrews 4:12).
  • We believe the Bible teaches that man, created by God, willfully sins against God and is consequently lost and without hope apart from Jesus Christ (Acts 4:12; Romans 3:23).
  • We believe the Bible teaches that salvation—the forgiveness of sins—is only by grace through the blood of Jesus Christ (Matthew 26:28; Romans 5:9; Ephesians 2:8-9; 1 Peter 1:18-19; 1 John 1:7).
  • We believe the Bible teaches that one receives God’s grace by putting faith in Christ, repenting of sin, confessing Christ and being immersed into Christ (Romans 5:1-2/Luke 24:45-47; Acts 3:19; 17:30; 2 Peter 3:9/Matthew 10:32; Romans 10:9; Philippians 2:11; 1 John 4:15/Acts 2:38, Romans 6:1-7; Galatians 3:27; Colossians 2:12; 1 Peter 3:21).
  • We believe in the Church of Jesus Christ, founded on the Day of Pentecost and consisting of all Christians everywhere (Matthew 16:13-18; Acts 2:14-47).
  • We believe the Bible teaches that the Elders are to exercise authority over the local congregation (Acts 20:28; Philippians 1:1; 1 Timothy 3:1-7; Titus 1:5-9; 1 Peter 5:1-4).
