Statement of Faith

  1. We believe in one God who created the heavens and the earth and there is no one beside Him (Isa. 43:10-13; Isa. 44:24; Deut. 6: 4; Psa. 24:1-2; 1 Cor. 8: 4-6).
  2. We believe in the Trinity, God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (1 John 5:7; Matt. 28:19).
  3. We believe in holding true to the teachings of God and our Savior Jesus Christ that have been entrusted to us in the whole Bible, the Old and New Testaments. We believe that the Word of God, the Bible, is the only authority, and is inspired by the Holy Spirit, and is the only truth that we must live by (2 Tim. 3:16-17; Heb. 4:12; Mark 13:31).
  4. We believe that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Rom. 3:23).
  1. We believe Jesus Christ was born of a virgin (Luke 1:26-38).
  1. We believe that God became flesh, in Jesus Christ, and dwelled on earth among humanity. We believe that Jesus died on the cross for our sins, that we may be forgiven, that He was bodily raised to life on the third day, and returned to the Father in Heaven (John 1:1-5, 14; Isa. 9:6-7; John 14:7-11; Luke 23:33-34; Luke 24:1-7; Isa. 53:3-7).
  1. We believe that salvation comes to all people through proper teaching and hearing of the gospel (Rom. 10:17, Matt. 7:24), belief and faith in Jesus Christ (Heb. 11:6, Mark 16:15-16), repentance (Acts 2:38), confession that Jesus is the Son of God (Matt. 10:32-33, Acts 8:36-37), baptism for the remission of sins only by immersion in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (1 Pet. 3:20-21; Rom. 6:3-5, Mark 16:16), and remain faithful unto death by righteous living (Rev. 2:10).
  1. We believe in the sacrament of the Lord’s Supper through open communion for all baptized (immersed) believers (Luke 22:19; Acts 20:7).
  1. We believe that Jesus Christ will come back again to gather up His Church (John 2:2-4; Acts 1: 11; 1 Thess. 4:13-18).
  1. We believe there is a real Heaven and Hell. We believe that where we spend our eternity is determined by which one we choose while we are alive on earth. There are no second chances after death (Rev. 21: 22-27, 20:10-15; Heb. 9: 27-28).
