WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe in the verbal inspiration of the scriptures and the authority of both the Old and New Testaments.
We believe man was created in the image of God, through disobedience sinned and fell, and that the entire human race shares in man's lost and depraved nature.
We believe Jesus, the eternal Son of God, took upon Himself the form of a man by means of the virgin birth. Atonement for sin was made by the sacrificial and substitutional death of Jesus Christ.
We believe salvation is the gift of God by grace alone and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and that this faith is manifested in works pleasing to God.
We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into heaven, and His priestly intercession.
We believe the Holy Spirit is the Promise of the Father, our Comforter sent to convict the world of sin, which places the believer in the Body of Christ, indwells the believer, and bestows spiritual gifts to the Church.
We believe the baptism of the Holy Spirit is for all believers as a definite endowment of power for service.
We believe that the ordinances of the church, by the command of Christ, are Water Baptism by immersion and the Lord's Supper, both of which are administered to those who are born again.
We believe in the eternal salvation of the believers and in the eternal damnation and punishment of the nonbelievers.
We believe that the consummation of all things includes the visible, personal, and glorious return of Jesus Christ, the "Blessed Hope" of the Church.
