“TURNING EVERYDAY PEOPLE INTO FULLY-DEVOTED FOLLOWERS OF JESUS CHRIST”
What We Believe
We believe in one God–Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Matthew 3:16-17; John 14:9-10; John 14:16-17
We believe God is the creator of man and all things.
Genesis 1:1; Acts 17:24-27
We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son and Savior of the world.
John 3:16; Matthew 1:18; John 20:24-31
We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God and the final authority for all matters of faith.
Romans 15:4; Hebrews 4:12; 2 Timothy 3:16-17
We believe the Bible teaches that God established marriage in the beginning as a lifelong, exclusive relationship between one man and one woman and that any intimate expression of sexuality outside of Biblical marriage is sin.
Genesis 2:18-24, 9:7; Matthew 19:4-6; Romans 7:2; Ephesians 5:22-33
We believe that man, created by God, willfully sinned, and as a result, is lost and without hope apart from Jesus Christ.
Acts 4:12; Romans 3:21-24; 1 John 1:7
We believe salvation (the forgiveness of sins) comes by grace through the blood of Jesus Christ (His death on the cross).
Matthew 26:28; Romans 5:8-11; Ephesians 2:8-9
We believe the Bible teaches the way a person receives Jesus as Savior is to 1) decide you want to follow Jesus and have him as the Lord (boss) of your life; and 2) be baptized (immersed).
Acts 2, Acts 8, Acts 9, Acts 10, Acts 16, Acts 18, Acts 19, Acts 22
We believe the church is the body and bride of Christ, founded on the day of Pentecost, consisting of all Christians everywhere.
Matthew 16:13-18; Acts 2:14-47
We believe it is God’s plan for the elders to lead the local church.
Acts 20:28; 1 Timothy 3:1-7; 1 Peter 5:1-4
We believe death seals the eternal destiny of each person. The saved will inherit eternal life; the unsaved, eternal separation from God.
Romans 8:10-11; John 6:47; Hebrews 9:27-28
We believe the Holy Spirit lives within every Christian.
John 16:5-15; Romans 8:9
We believe in God’s creation of each person as a male or a female at the moment of conception.
Genesis 1:27; 2:7, 22; 5:2
