what do we believe?
“‘Love the lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment.
A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.'”
We believe in one God who eternally exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ is the second member of that Trinity (the Son of God) who became flesh to reveal God to humanity and to become the Savior of the lost world.
About the Scriptures
We believe the entire bible is the inspired Word of God and that men were moved by the Spirit of God to write every word of scripture. Therefore, we believe the bible is without error.
We believe that the blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin, and for the experience of new life. Therefore, God freely offers salvation to those who place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for their sin.
We believe that all people were created in the image of God to have fellowship with Him, but became alienated in that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, people are incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through their own efforts.
About the Christian Life
We believe all Christians should live for Christ and not for themselves. By obedience to the Word of God and daily yielding to the Spirit of God, every believer is conformed to the image of Christ as they grow in their faith.
About the Church
We believe that the Church is the body of Christ, of which Jesus Christ is the head. The Church is made up of those who have trusted by faith the finished work of Christ. The purpose of the Church is to glorify God by loving Him and by making Him known to the lost world.
