Core Values

We believe in God the Father, maker of Heaven and Earth, and of all that is seen and unseen. (Genesis 1:1; Nehemiah 9:6; Acts 14:15; Hebrews 11:3)
 
We believe that Jesus Christ is the only, virgin born, incarnate, Son of God. For our sake and salvation He came down from heaven, was crucified, died, buried, and rose from the dead according to the Scriptures. He is now seated at the right hand of the Father, and will come again to judge the living and the dead, and His kingdom will have no end. (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23; John 14:3; I Corinthians 15:3-4, 19-20, 52; 1 Thessalonians 4:11-18; Hebrews 4:15)
 
We believe in the Holy Spirit, eternally one of the Godhead, who has come into the world to reveal and glorify Jesus Christ. He convicts us, draws us, indwells us, regenerates us, and empowers us for Godly living and service. (John 14:15, 26; 16:8-13; 1Corinthians 12:12-14; Ephesians 1:3)
 
We believe in the Trinity; One God, Creator and Preserver of all things. He is infinite and eternally self-existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, one in essence yet distinct in person and function. (Matthew 28:19; John 14:26; 2 Corinthians 13:14)
 
We believe that the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, is the Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and is complete and accurate in the original manuscripts. It is our supreme and final authority in matters of faith and life. (2 Timothy 3:15-17;  2 Peter 1:19-21)
 
We believe humans were created in the image of God but due to Adam’s disobedience have fallen from fellowship with Him. God however, has chosen to provide for our salvation through Jesus Christ’s sacrifice on the cross. Those who repent and put faith in Jesus Christ are saved eternally and are released in this life from the bondage of guilt and sin. (Genesis 1:26-27; 3:1-6; 1 Corinthians 15:21-22; Romans 3:23; 5:12; 6:23; John 3:16, 36; 2 Corinthians 5:17)
 
We believe that at physical death the believer enters into eternal fellowship with the Lord awaiting bodily resurrection to everlasting blessing. The unbeliever enters into eternal separation from the Lord awaiting bodily resurrection to everlasting judgment and condemnation. (Matthew 25:46; Philippians 1:23; 2 Peter 2:4-9)
 
We believe the ordinances of Baptism and Communion are acts of obedience which commemorate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We believe it is the responsibility of the church to offer Baptism and Communion to all believers, both members and non-members. Baptism is administered only in light of an individual’s profession of faith in Jesus Christ and shall be by total immersion in water. Baptism is encouraged as a sign of faithful commitment to Jesus Christ by all who would seek to become members of this Church body. Communion is open and available to anyone who professes belief in Jesus Christ as their Savior. (Matthew 28:19-20; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26)
 
We believe that all God's children should conduct themselves in a manner that pleases God. This involves loving God with all one’s heart, soul and strength, loving people and seeking to reach others for Jesus Christ. (Matthew 22:37-40; 28:19-20; 1 Corinthians 9:19-23; 10:31; 2 Corinthians 5:17)
