Statement of Faith
We believe in the unchanging orthodox positions of Christianity taught in the Holy Scriptures including:
The doctrine of the God Head. (Matthew 28:19)
The deity of Jesus Christ. (Hebrews 1:1-3)
The inspiration and infallibility of God’s written Word in content and meaning as found in the Bible. (II Timothy 3:16)
The authority of God’s written Word for all matters of faith and practice. (II Peter 1:16- 21)
The Church is The Body of Christ on earth in which believers experience Fellowship, Communion, Baptism, and Service in God’s Mission. (Acts 2:42-47)
The primary directive of the Church is the preaching of The Gospel for salvation (Luke 19:10, Matthew 18:11, Matthew 28:18-20)
The sinfulness and fallen state of all humankind. (Romans 3:23; 6:17)
The need for a sacrificial atonement by Jesus Christ the Son of God for the sins of humanity. (Hebrews 9:24-28)
The existence of an eternal hell for those who refuse the grace of God expressed in the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ, God’s Son.(II Thessalonians 1: 6-9)
Salvation is God’s free gift but each person must accept it. Only by believing, trusting, and obeying Jesus Christ can a person accept God’s offer of forgiveness and be saved from sins’ penalty.(John 1:12, 14:6, Romans 5:1, 6:23, Galatians 3:26, Ephesians 2:8-10, Titus 3:5)
Salvation is by repentance, confession, baptism (by immersion), and a life commitment to Christ’s service.
The Lord’s Supper is to remember Christ and what He has done for us on the cross. (Acts 21:46, 20:7, I Corinthians 11:23-28)

Biblically authentic marriage between a man and a woman. (Genesis 2:24; Hebrews 13:4)
The creation of human life begins at the moment of conception. (Psalm 139:13-16)

The imminent return of Jesus Christ to receive those who belong to Him. (Matthew 24:44)
