What We Believe

What we believe

All Scripture was given by the inspiration of God and is the standard to be used for conduct and for determining Truth.


The triune God is revealed to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.


God the Father reigns with providential care over His universe.


Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, conceived by the Holy Spirit, and born of a virgin (Mary).


Jesus was crucified, died, and buried for our sin, and on the third day rose victoriously (and bodily) over death and appeared to many witnesses.


Jesus will return in power and glory to establish His Kingdom forever.


The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God Who convicts us of sin, draws us to God, dwells within believers, and empowers believers for service.


God created man/woman in His own image, without sin and having freedom of choice. Adam and Eve disobeyed God and sin entered into the world as a result, separating people from God.


People become children of God through faith in Jesus Christ.


By the shed blood of Jesus Christ, salvation is offered freely to all who accept Him as Savior and Lord, and they then become new creations because of God's work of redemption and regeneration (the new birth).


The Church is the Body of Jesus Christ, consisting of all regenerated people of all time, and functions through local assemblies of believers with Spirit-given gifts enabling them to minister and to proclaim Christ to one another and the world.


Christian baptism by immersion in water in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit—and that being baptized is an act of obedience testifying to our faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior. It symbolizes our death to sin, the burial of our old life, and our resurrection to the new.


The Lord's Supper is an act of obedience, wherein we partake of the bread and the cup remembering and proclaiming Jesus' death until He comes again.


All those regenerated by God's Holy Spirit are called to walk humbly with God in a life of service to their fellow humans, and because God is a God of justice, love, and mercy, called by His name, we should seek to establish justice and be people of reconciliation and healing as we proclaim Christ to the world.
