STATEMENT OF FAITH

We believe the that God eternally exists in three Persons as Father Almighty God and Creator of all things; Jesus Christ the Son, who became flesh, lived among us, was crucified on our behalf, resurrected on the third day, and will come again bodily to gather those who belong to Him and will reign forever; and Holy Spirit, who proceeds from the Father to glorify the Son, convicts the world of sin, righteousness and judgment, as well as seals repentant sinners and empowers them for all godly living.
 
We believe the Bible, the Old and New Testaments, to be equally and in all parts, the inspired, infallible Word of God, ultimately authoritative for the Christian faith and life, revealing God’s will for the salvation of all people and pointing to the Second Coming of His Son Jesus Christ.
 
We believe that man is created in the image and likeness of God, but because of our sin, we are separated from God, which is spiritual death.  Sinful people may be reconciled to God only through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, who conquered death in resurrection and offers eternal life to all who believe and receive Him as both Savior and Lord. This salvation is not through works, but by His shed blood and grace alone through faith in Christ.
 
We believe in the resurrection of the death—for the believer, resurrection to everlasting life with God; for the unbeliever, resurrection to judgment and everlasting punishment separated from God.
 
We believe all believers and only believers should be baptized to identify with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. 
 
We believe our primary purpose is to glorify God.  We are to proclaim the Gospel of saving grace and to disciple Christians to spiritual growth in the faith.  We believe God’s people should live holy lives that are pleasing to God and should abstain from every form of evil.
 
We believe all Christians are to observe the Lord’s Supper as a remembrance of Christ’s sacrificial death, a reminder of Christ’s Second Coming.
