WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe the unchanging Word of God is the strongest foundation to shape our worldview and build our theology. Our beliefs are not constructed by personal preference, but are deeply rooted in the soil of the Scriptures.
God is One and exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Jesus will return for a second time to judge the world and to take His people home to heaven to be with Him forever.
Mankind was created by God in His image. Mankind voluntarily chose to sin and is in need of God’s grace for salvation.
Salvation is by grace through faith in Christ alone. Jesus died on the cross, paid the penalty for all of mankind's sins, and rose bodily from the grave. Salvation is obtained by receiving Jesus Christ as Savior. Those who receive His free gift of salvation are eternally secure in Him.
The Church is the body of Christ and exists to fulfill the Great Commission.
God has called all believers to be good stewards with the resources He has blessed them with.
Baptism and the Lord's Supper are the two ordinances of the church.
We believe in cooperating with other groups that help advance the Kingdom of God and the work of the ministry.
