What We Believe
About the Bible:
We believe that the Holy Bible is the written Word of God, to be accepted in its entirety, and the record of God’s revelation of Himself to man.
About Jesus the Christ:
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin; that He lived in this world – yet without sin; that He was crucified and , in His death, bore the sins of all men of all time; that He was buried on the third day, arose from the dead, thus establishing redemption for all men who accept Him as Savior; that He ascended unto God the Father and will come again to receive unto Himself the redeemed, passing judgment on all who reject Him as Savior.
About the Holy Spirit:
We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity; that He is ever-present to convict the unbeliever and to comfort, strengthen, and direct the believer.
We believe that every man is a sinner by nature and sins of his own free will; that he lives under the condemnation of sin and needs to be saved; that salvation is a work of grace, received when the unbeliever repents of his sins, believes on the Lord Jesus Christ and accepts Him as personal Savior; and that salvation is a present and permanent position.
About Church Ordinances:
We believe that the ordinances of the Church, as set forth in the New Testament, are Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
We believe that Baptism is the immersion in water of a professed believer in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer’s faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior, and his own death to sin, the burial of his old life, and his resurrection to a new life in Jesus Christ.
