What We Believe

THE SCRIPTURES: We believe in the inspiration, inerrancy, authenticity, authority, and sufficiency of the Bible.
2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Psalm 119:11, 89, 105.

GOD: We believe that there is only one living and true God and that he has existed eternally in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The Triune God is the Creator and sustainer of all things, and is worthy of all worship, obedience and glory.
Deuteronomy. 6:4-5; Genesis 1:31, Luke 3:21-22; Matthew 28:18-20, Rev. 4:11

DEPRAVITY: We believe that man is born a sinner in need of salvation offered via the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

SATAN: We believe that Satan is real and that he is the unholy god of this age but already defeated by the victorious resurrection of Christ.

BIBLICAL CREATION: We believe that God created all that is by the direct, sovereign act of his will in six days.

SALVATION: We believe that salvation is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ alone, entirely apart from any good works on man’s part.

THE CHURCH: We believe that God instituted the church with Christ as its head for the propagation of the gospel and the building up of believers.

OBEDIENCE: We believe in two ordinances for church practice—baptism and the Lord’s supper.

THE COMING KINGDOM: We believe that Jesus Christ will return bodily for his bride, the church, and will personally rule on earth for 1,000 years, followed by a final judgment on all unbelievers.

TO THE GLORY OF GOD ALONE: We believe that followers of Christ are to live out their lives in a manner that is worthy of the gospel so that God is glorified in their worship and witness.
