Our Beliefs

What we believe is the foundation for all we do cooperatively as a church and individually in our personal lives. Beliefs lead to values, and values are demonstrated through action. We want to help strengthen your belief in Christ so your values and actions can be in line with what the Bible teaches.

About the Bible

We believe that the Bible is the literal, infallible Word of God. All of life’s questions can be answered by reading and applying what’s inside, including how we should live, and how to find salvation.

II Timothy 3:16

About God

There is one God, who has revealed Himself as our Father, in His Son Jesus Christ, and as the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is God revealed in flesh. He is both God and man.

Deuteronomy 6:4; Ephesians 4:4-6; Colossians 2:9; 1 Timothy 3:16

About Sin and Salvation

We believe that everyone has sinned and needs salvation. The Bible is clear that salvation comes by the grace of God through man’s faith, and is only possible because of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. The Bible standard of full salvation is repentance, baptism in water by immersion in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and the baptism of the Holy Ghost. As a person receives the Holy Ghost, God causes them to speak in an unlearned language as a sign to them and others that they have received it.

Romans 3:23-25; 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 3:3-5; Acts 2:38; I Peter 3:20-21; Mark 16:16; Titus 3:5

About the Gospel

“The gospel” is the good news that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and rose again. We obey the gospel by repentance (death to sin), water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ (burial), and receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit (resurrection).

1 Corinthians 15:1-4; Acts 2:4, 37-39; Romans 6:3-4

About the Future

Jesus Christ is coming again to fulfill the promise of taking His spirit-filled church to Heaven. In the end will be the final judgment, and all the righteous saints who are sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise will inherit eternal life. The reward of the un-righteous will be an eternal Hell.

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 20:11-15

About Christian Living

As Christians, we are given two basic mandates from God. First, to love God with everything we’ve got, and to love other people. Second, we are to make new disciples for Christ through preaching the gospel to the world. In fulfilling these mandates, we should live a life that is holy… both inwardly and outwardly. We should worship God joyfully and wholeheartedly. In addition, God provides spiritual gifts that He intends to be working in the church today, including healing, miracles and supernatural faith.

Mark 12:28-31; 2 Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews 12:14; 1 Corinthians 12:8-10
