About Us

What We Believe

About the Bible

  • We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, divinely inspired; that it contains no errors in the original manuscripts and has been preserved by God for us; that it is authoritative for this church and each of us for every age.
  • About God

  • We believe that God exists eternally in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. These three are one God.
  • We believe that God created the universe by His Power and Word.
  • We believe that God is all knowing, all powerful and ever present.
  • About Jesus Christ

  • We believe Jesus Christ was sent by God, the Father, into the world to save sinners.
  • We believe that Jesus Christ was virgin born, sinless in life and mighty in words and deeds.
  • We believe that Jesus Christ was both God and man, that He was crucified for our sins,and was bodily raised from the dead. He then ascended to His Father's side where He is the Head of the Church and intercedes for believers.
  • We believe that Jesus Christ is coming again personally, visibly and boldly to reign forever as King of Kings and Lord of Lords!
  • About the Holy Spirit

  • We believe the Holy Spirit is a person, is God, and has all the divine characteristics. He indwells all believers,baptizes and seals them at the moment of salvation. He fills them in response to their confession of sin and surrender to Him.
  • About the Church

  • We believe a New Testament church is a local body of baptized believers who have agreed together to worship Jesus Christ, evangelize the lost, equip and edify other believers, and encourage one another.
  • The church has two ordinances: (1) Baptism, which symbolizes the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ and the new life we have in Him. (2) The Lord's Supper, which serves as a reminder of Christ's death and His ultimate return.
