Statement of Faith
We believe in the Old and New Testaments of the Bible as being verbally inspired by God and inerrant and infallible in the original writings and that they are the supreme and final authority.
We believe in one God existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood.
We believe in the resurrection of Christ, His ascension into heaven and His existence there as High Priest for us.
We believe in that blessed hope, the personal, and imminent return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
We believe that all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit, and thereby they become children of God and heirs of eternal life and of Heaven.
We believe in the necessity of the indwelling Christ through His Holy Spirit for godly living and power to witness and minister.
We believe in the existence of a personal devil, who is still working in the world to destroy the souls of men and that he and all his angels, and all who receive not Christ as their Savior, will eternally perish in the lake of fire in hell.
We believe in the Church, the body of Christ, whose mission it is to preach the Gospel to all the world.
The Lord's supper is open to any who have received Christ as their Savior and who have examined their life for any unconfessed sin. Each time we break bread together is an opportunity to turn from sin, focus on the cross of Christ's forgiveness and proclaim His second coming. Children may partake if they have received Christ, and under parents' supervision, know how to engage in self-examination and confession of sin.
Being baptized is an act of obedience to Christ and symbolizes the believer's death, burial, and resurrection with Christ. We practice believer's baptism by total immersion. Baptism does not save anyone, but it is a testimony to the world of already having been saved by Christ.
While we do not practice infant baptism, we do encourage parents to bring their children to be dedicated to the Lord. Dedication invokes God's blessing on the child as the parents publicly commit themselves to raise the child in accordance with the teachings of Scripture.
