A Summary of our Beliefs

The Word of God

We believe that the 66 books of the Bible and only them are the inspired and authoritative Word of God without error in the original writings. It is complete in its revelation of his will for salvation.

 

The Triune God

We believe in One God who eternally exists in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Creation

We believe God created the universe as a display of His glory. 

He created human beings in His image — holy, righteous, and possessing true knowledge.

The Fall: Human Disobedience

We believe sin entered the world through the disobedience of Adam and Eve. That sin resulted in their guilt and consequences applied to the whole human race, so that, apart from God's grace, all people are guilty of sin and subjects of God’s righteous judgment and condemnation.

 

Salvation​

We believe God determined in grace to save a great multitude of guilty sinners from every tribe and language and people and nation, and to this end he foreknew them and chose them, all to the praise of his glorious grace.

 

Salvation is received through faith alone, apart from the works or merit of human beings, by the grace of God.

Jesus Christ Alone

We believe salvation centers in a person, Jesus Christ, who from His eternal glory as God, took on flesh, lived a sinless life, was crucified, rose on the third day, and ascended into heaven as our representative and substitute. On the cross he canceled the debt of sin and reconciled to God all those who believe.

 

In his resurrection Jesus broke the power of death, defeated Satan, and brought everlasting life to all who believe.

 

The Church

We believe that the Church is the body of Christ, and that the Church exists for the purposes of worshiping God, edifying the saints of God, bearing witness to the Kingdom of God, and reaching the lost and dying world by making disciples through the gospel of Jesus Christ.

 

The people of God are called to live as salt in a decaying world and light in a dark world, and should neither be closed off from the world nor become indistinguishable from it.

Rather, the Church is to do good for their communities to the glory of God.

 

Return and Restoration

We believe that Jesus Christ will come again, bodily, to the earth.

We believe in the resurrection of the body for both those in Christ and those who died in their sins.

 

We hold that everlasting life in Heaven awaits only those who by faith have trusted in the finished work of Jesus Christ.
