We believe there is only one God. This one divine being exists eternally as the Trinity of three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
We believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old Testament and New Testament are the inspired, inerrant, and infallible Word of God. God’s Word is the final authority for faith and life. It contains everything God requires us to know, believe, and do to worship Him and live lives that glorify Him.
We believe that all humans of every race are a unique creation of God, made in His image, and are thus made to know God and steward His creation. Through the sin of the first man, Adam, humanity fell so that all people are sinners and need to be rescued from sin’s presence, power, and consequences.
In salvation, God rescues sinners from the power of sin and from the righteous judgment he will ultimately exercise against unrepentant sinners. Salvation is available to all people as a free gift of God’s grace exclusively through faith in the redemptive power and sacrifice of Jesus Christ. There is no salvation apart from personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
We believe in the literal, physical return of Jesus to judge the living and the dead. We believe Jesus will return to the earth personally and visibly in glory. He will raise the dead, judge all humanity, and establish a new heaven and a new earth.
We believe that every person who has received salvation through faith in Christ is eternally secure. For every believer, God will complete the good work of salvation that He began in them.
We believe people were created to exist eternally. People who die with their sins forgiven through Christ spend eternity in heaven, and those who die in their sins without Christ spend eternity in hell. Heaven and hell are real places. Those welcomed into heaven will live there forever in perfect joy with the Lord Jesus. Those cast into hell will suffer eternal punishment away from the Lord.
We believe the church of the Lord Jesus Christ is an autonomous, local body of baptized believers on mission to make disciples and build God’s Kingdom.
We believe the Believer’s Baptism and the Lord’s Supper are the two ordinances of the church.
