Core Beliefs:

Bible:

We believe that the Bible in its original documents, is the inspired Word of God, the written record of His supernatural revelation to men, absolute in its authority, complete in its revelation, final in its content, and without error in its statements.

 

God:

There is one God, eternally existent, creator of the heaven and earth. He is manifested in three Persons; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

 

Jesus Christ:

The Lord Jesus Christ is God incarnate, conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, completely God and completely man. He was sinless and perfect, and gave Himself as a substitutionary sacrifice by shedding His blood on the cross. He was bodily raised from the dead, ascended into heaven and will return bodily to earth.
 

Man & Sin:

Man was created in the image of God; he sinned in Adam and thereby incurred both physical death and spiritual separation from God. He is now a sinner, by nature and by choice, and in need of salvation.

 

Salvation:

We believe that the story of the Bible is the story of a God who loves a rebellious and disobedient world. We need to be forgiven—and we need help that is stronger than human help. We need God.

The crucifixion of Christ shows us how awful wrongdoing is, and it assures us that the price for it has been paid. His crucifixion gives us evidence that we have been forgiven, and his resurrection gives us evidence that he is our salvation. God has come to us and saved us because we could not save ourselves. We need this kind of salvation, and the gospel of Jesus Christ teaches that God has given us what we need.

That’s the good news, and we can trust in the finished work of God, not in the flimsy goodness of human beings.

What must I do to be saved? There is only one thing left for us to do; believe God or not believe God. Jesus said, “He that believes on me has everlasting life.”  (John 6:47)  Right now, why not trust Him as your Savior from sin and you can know that you have eternal life.

 

Church:

The purpose of the local assembly is to bring honor and glory to it’s Head the Lord Jesus Christ by gathering for instruction, worship, and fellowship, and scattering for evangelism in our community and unto all the world.

 

Eternity:

There will be a resurrection of the saved and of the lost; of the saved unto eternal conscious life and of the lost unto eternal conscious punishment.
 

Sign Gifts:

We believe that certain gifts of the Spirit were temporary, providing the foundation for the New Testament church and are therefore not active today. These gifts were revelatory in nature – word of knowledge, tongues and interpretation, which were critical for a church that was without the written New Testament. Other foundational gifts, such as healing and raising the dead, were used to confirm and validate the ministry of the Apostles as the founders of the church.
