"All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work."


II Timothy: 3:16-17

WE BELIEVE the Bible in its entirety is the inspired and inerrant Word of God and its writings are eternal truths that are to be experienced and practiced by believers for all time.



DEITY


 

GOD IS THE SOVEREIGN KING

He is eternal, unchanging and all-powerful; He is perfect in holiness, wisdom, goodness, justice and love.  He is the Creator of all and by His grace all things are sustained.  He exists as the one true and living God in three persons of one substance: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, equal in power and majesty.


 JESUS CHRIST IS GOD'S ETERNAL SON

As true God and true Man He allowed Himself to be born of a virgin, taught men how to live through His sinless life, was crucified as a sacrifice for our sins, arose bodily from the dead, was seen by over 500 persons and returned to heaven to prepare a place for us.

HUMANITY


 

MEN AND WOMEN WERE CREATED IN GOD'S IMAGE

 Because Adam and Eve were tempted by Satan and rebelled against God, all people are sinners by nature and are therefore under condemnation.  Through repentance and personal faith in Jesus Christ, we are forgiven of our sins, reborn by the Holy Spirit, and we become Children of God.


MARRIAGE HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED

BY GOD

This church recognizes "Christian Marriage" as exclusively the union of one man and one woman.

SPIRITUALITY


 

THE HOLY SPIRIT PERSUADES US TO REPENT OF OUR SINS AND CONFESS JESUS AS LORD

 He lives in us, teaches us, gifts us and enables us to live godly lives.  Jesus Christ baptizes the seeking believer with the Holy Spirit and power for service, as a second experience subsequent to regeneration.



IN-WATER BAPTISM AND COMMUNION FOR BELIEVERS,

are symbolic elements of Christ's sacrifice that demonstrate our union with Jesus as He spiritually dispenses His grace to all born-again believers.
