What We Believe

We believe that the Bible is inspired by God and is the supreme authority in all matters relating to our faith and life (2 Timothy 3:16-17). We humbly endeavor to be faithful to God in our teaching and practices. 


We believe in the one true and living God who is eternal, all-knowing and all-powerful. God has revealed himself clearly in the Scriptures as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. He is our Creator, our Savior and our Helper.


We believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God who was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died for our sins, and was raised from the dead. Jesus is now at the right hand of God in heaven where he is preparing a home for those who love him. 


We believe that people can only be saved by the grace of God through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Salvation is a gift from God (Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9). We cannot do anything to ever earn our salvation or to ever deserve it in any way (Romans 3:28; Galatians 2:15-16). When we declare that Jesus is Lord (Romans 10:9-10) and we are united with him in baptism, we are expressing our faith in the power of Jesus to save us from our sins and to give us a new life (Romans 6:1-4; John 10:10). 


We believe that everyone who accepts Christ as their Savior and Lord has the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit who acts as their Helper, Guide and Advocate enabling them to live for him (Acts 2:38-39; 5:32). We also believe that the Lord gives spiritual gifts to every Christian through the power of the Holy Spirit in order to equip all of them for service (Ephesians 4:7-13).


We believe that the church is the body of Christ and should be actively involved in the ministry and mission of Jesus to reach people in our community and around the world with the good news about the salvation that God has so lovingly provided for us all (Matthew 28:18-20).


We celebrate communion together each week as a meaningful way to remember what Jesus has done for us through his atoning death and victorious resurrection.


We believe that humbleness in prayer is essential to all that we do for the Lord.
