We uphold these core beliefs as essential to the Christian faith. For a more detailed outline of these beliefs, please see the complete Statement of Faith (below).

  1. We believe the Bible is the inspired and authoritative Word of God and is the supreme source of truth for the Christian life.
  2. We believe there is one God, Creator and Ruler of the universe, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  3. We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ; His virgin birth; His sinless life; His substitutionary death on a cross; His bodily resurrection; His ascension to the right hand of the Father; and His personal, imminent return.
  4. We believe the Holy Spirit convicts humankind of sin, regenerates the believing sinner, and empowers every believer in Christ by His indwelling presence.
  5. We believe all people were created in God’s image and matter deeply to Him. However, through man’s disobedience to God, all people are sinners by nature and practice.
  6. We believe a person receives forgiveness of sin, eternal life and a personal relationship with God by grace through faith in Jesus Christ.
  7. We believe death seals the destiny of each person. Man will ether spend eternity with God or separated from His presence.
  8. We believe God established marriage as a lifelong, exclusive relationship between one man and one woman and that all intimate sexual activity outside the marriage relationship is sin.
  9. All Christians are members of the body of Christ, the one true Church universal. The local church is a congregation of believers who gather for worship, prayer, instruction, encouragement, mutual accountability and community with each other.
  10. Baptism and Communion (Lord’s Supper) are the two ordinances the Lord Jesus Christ has committed to the local body.
