what we believe

The Bible is the inerrant and infallible Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:15; 2 Peter 1:21) God is a Trinity, (Father, Son, and Spirit), and He is absolutely holy, loving, all powerful, and in control of everything. (Isaiah 6:3; Daniel 4:35; Ephesians 1:11; John 3:16)

Jesus Christ is God's only Son, truly God, who was born of a virgin and became man, fully man, to die on the cross for the salvation of sinners. He arose from the dead physically and soon will come back to earth to judge the living and the dead. (John 1; Acts 1:3; Romans 5:8; 1 Timothy 1:15; 2 Timothy 4:1)

Every person is a fallen creature, who sins daily in thought, word, and deed, being totally incapable of pleasing God, and faces eternal, conscious suffering in hell. (Romans 3:10-12, 8:7, 8; Hebrews 9:27; Matthew 25:41) God commands every person to repent and believe the Gospel. (Acts 17:30, 31)

The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity, who convinces sinners of their need for Christ, causes a change in their hearts, and enables them to believe the Gospel and to grow into the likeness of Christ. (Acts 5:3, 4; John 16:8-11; Titus 3:5; 2 Corinthians 3:18; Galatians 5:22)

The church is a local congregation of baptized believers under Christ's rule, composed solely of repentant and believing sinners who confess Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. (Romans 10:9, 10; Ephesians 1:22, 23; Matthew 28; 19, 20; Hebrews 10: 19-25) God has ordained the means of preaching and witnessing to save sinners. (Romans 1:16, 10:13-17; 1 Corinthians 1:21; Mark 16:15)

Salvation of any person is "By Grace Alone, Through Faith Alone", and that those the Father chose, the Son redeemed and the Spirit calls and converts. (Ephesians 1:4-11; John 10:15, Ephesians 5:25; John 17:2, 6:44, 37)
