OUR BELIEFS 

 

 

We are a church called to bring people to Jesus, a community committed to becoming more like Him!

  

We want everyone in our church to be able to identify with our mission, be included in our mission and be equipped to carry it out here, there and everywhere.

 

Statement of Faith

The Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, are the inspired Word of God and the divine and final authority for all Christian faith and conduct.

There is one God, and only one, Who is self existent, eternal, and infinite in every excellence, and Who has revealed Himself as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, the same in essence, though distinct in personality.

Jesus Christ is true God and true man, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He came into the world to save men from the guilt and condemnation of sin and the enslavement to sin, offering His blood as an atonement and rising from the dead to provide new life.  He makes this salvation available to all who exercise faith in Him.

The ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ; to convict men of their personal sin of unbelief, Jesus' righteousness, the judgment upon this world; and to regenerate all whom believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit indwells, guides, instructs, transforms, and empowers the believer for godly living and service.

Man was created in the image of God but fell into sin, becoming subject to death and to the eternal displeasure of God.

The shed blood of Jesus Christ and His bodily resurrection from the dead provide the only grounds for the justification and salvation for all who place faith, which includes repentance (acknowledgment of our sinfulness), in the Lord Jesus Christ.

God has saved man by His grace in order to display His glory. This does not negate man's responsibility to respond to the Gospel nor render inoperative the proclamation of the Gospel to all.

Nothing can separate believers from the love of God. The sure evidence of one's personal salvation is continuing in the faith and growth in righteousness.

The true church is composed of all such persons, who, through saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the body of Christ of which He is the head.

The ordinances of the Church are Baptism and the Lord's Supper. Baptism symbolizes the fact of the believer's death, burial, and resurrection with Christ. The Lord's Supper reminds us of His death on our behalf and all the benefits that we receive from that death.

The coming of Jesus Christ is imminent; His return will be for blessing for those who know Jesus Christ and for judgment for those who do not know Jesus. 

There will be a bodily resurrection of the believer and unbeliever - the believer for blessedness and reward, the unbeliever for judgment and eternal doom.
