We Believe:

The Bible is the revealed and inspired Word of God. It consists of the sixty-six books which comprise the Old and New Testaments, and it reveals God's plans and provisions for His creation and humankind. The truths found in these sacred pages are to be read, preached, taught, and lived.

God is the sovereign Creator of all that exists, and without Him nothing could exist that does exist. He is the one God eternally existing as three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. He was born of a virgin (true man, while still true God), lived among us, was crucified, buried, resurrected, and ascended to the right hand of God the Father. One day, at God's own time, Jesus Christ will return.

God the Holy Spirit is the One Who convinces a person of sin and the need to accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Once one has accepted Christ, the indwelling Holy Spirit empowers the individual for Christian life and service. Jesus promised believers that beyond this work of the Holy Spirit is a subsequent empowerment for witness and ministry.

All people are created in the image and likeness of God. Because of the fall in the Garden of Eden, all people have sinned and are separated from God. Without a savior, they remain spiritually dead and eventually go to eternal punishment in a real hell. Through His death on the cross, Jesus Christ, God the Son, offers salvation and eternal life in a real heaven.

The believer's life is to be characterized by such disciplines as Bible reading, prayer, and assembling together for the purpose of building up one's self and others in the community of faith. Such gatherings allow opportunity for the various manifestations of the Holy Spirit.
