Our Beliefs

We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are verbally inspired in their original writings and are the final authority for life and faith.

We believe God is the majestic Creator of the universe and yet is also personal, eternally existing in three Persons… Father, Son and holy Spirit.

We believe in the deity, virgin birth, atonement, bodily resurrection, ascension and imminent return of the Lord Jesus Christ.

We believe the Holy Spirit is God’s Agent today in glorifying Christ, convicting men of sin, regenerating them to new life in Christ by permanently indwelling them, enabling them to be godly witnesses and servants for Christ.

We believe the church is composed of all born again believers and is represented both universally and locally, Every member is equipped through the teaching and application of God’s Word and encouraged to exercise their spiritual gifts for the purpose of edifying the church, evangelizing the lost and glorifying their Father in heaven.

We believe man was created in God’s image, that he sinned in disobedience, incurring spiritual and physical death. Since all men are descendants of Adam they are born sinners and condemned to eternal punishment. Those who truly repent and receive the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior are forgiven of all sin, born again and receive God’s gracious gift of eternal life.

We believe in a personal devil, who is a fallen angel named Satan. He opposes all that God is and does, promotes sin and evil in the world, and deceives and tempts men to sin against God. Through Christ’s resurrection he was defeated and at the end of the age will be cast into the Lake of Fire along with his fallen angels.

We believe that looking unto Jesus as the Author and Finisher of our faith is our supreme objective as children of God through the new birth and adoption. Obedience to all truth, as revealed in the Bible, is absolutely essential for our spiritual growth.
