We are committed to seeing lives changed
By the Gospel of God's Grace,
For the Glory of God.
We are all called to build relationships, first with God, then with each other and those outside of the church. We place a high value on the process of growing in the grace and knowledge of our Lord, which in God's providence, may lead to numerical growth. However, the measurement of success is seen in changed lives as evidenced by increased godliness and maturing toward unity in Christ, not just numbers of people in attendance.
The Bible is the inspired, authoritative word of God; without error as originally written, the only infallible rule of faith and practice.
God is the one, perfect eternally existent God who is also three persons of equal power and glory: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ is the Son of God who was born of the virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, died on he cross to pay for our sins, rose bodily from the dead on the third day, ascended into the presence of God the Father, and who will someday return, visibly and bodily, in power and glory.
The Holy Spirit participated in creation, providence, and inspiration of the Bible, began special ministries on the Day of Pentecost for the Church, indwells every believer, baptizes all in Christ into one Body, is the means of all acceptable worship and service, and convicts the world of sin, righteousness and judgment.
Man was created in God's image, sinned and incurred both physical and spiritual death, is lost in his natural state, and cannot earn merit or acceptance from God.
Salvation (eternal life) is completely the gift of God given by His unmerited love, received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, results in forgiveness of sins and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, and brings new life as a new creature
The Christian life is an abundant, joyous, peaceful life lived by the supernatural power of God through yielding control of our lives to Him; requires the power and work of the Holy Spirit; and is centered on a personal relationship with the living Lord Jesus Christ.
Resurrection will occur physically for both those who have received Jesus Christ as personal Lord and Savior the saved) and those who have not (the unsaved). The saved will be resurrected to an eternal state of joy with God; the unsaved to eternal punishment and suffering without God.
Baptism is a sign of God's Covenant and is properly administered to infant children of believers and to those who come as adults to trust in Christ.
The Gospel (the Good news of Salvation in Jesus Christ) must be brought to all the world as a witness for Christ according to His command.
