Our Beliefs

 

The Bible

The Bible is the inerrant, divinely inspired and preserved Word of God. Both Old and New Testaments are the inspired Word of God, and our inspiration and complete authority. We accept the Bible as the final authority in all matters of faith and practice.

Romans 15:4; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:19-21

God

There is one God - Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He is Creator of all things both visible and invisible. He is infinitely perfect and eternally existing. 

Genesis 1:1-2; Matthew 28:18-20; John 1:1-2, 8:58; 1 Corinthians 6:11, 8:6; Acts 2:32-33

Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is God's one and only Son. He came to reveal God and to redeem man. He died on the cross for the atonement of our sins, rose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, and will return again. 

Romans 4:24, 8:34; Galatians 4:4-5; Philippians 2:5-11

Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit instructs, comforts, and empowers believers for godly living and service. 

John 14:16-17; 1 Corinthians 2:12-13, Ephesians 1:13-14

Salvation

Salvation, the forgiveness of sin, is only by God's grace, through the blood of Jesus Christ. One receives grace by putting faith in Christ, repenting (turning away) of sin, confessing allegiance to Christ, and being baptized (immersed) in water into Christ.

Ephesians 2:8-9; 1 Peter 1:18-19; 1 John 1:7; Romans 5:1-2; Acts 3:19, 17:30; 2 Peter 3:9; Philippians 2:11; Acts 2:38; Romans 6:1-7; Galatians 3:27; Colossians 2:12; 1 Peter 3:21

The Church

The true church is made up of all people who through saving faith in Jesus Christ have been made a new creation. We are united together in the Body of Christ as brothers and sisters, giving our allegiance and service to Jesus Christ, our Head.

Matthew 16:13-18; 2 Corinthians 5:17; Colossians 1:18; Ephesians 2:19-20 

Communion

or "The Lord’s Supper" is offered each Sunday in worship for all Christians. This is not our table to bar you from or invite you to. This is the Lord’s Table and He is the One who invited through the shedding of His blood on the cross. We hope to pattern the practice of the first century Christians as described in the Bible who "met on the first day of the week to break bread." Again, all Christians are invited to partake.

Acts 20:7 & 1 Corinthians 11:24 - 26
