What We Believe

What We Believe

We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament are the written Word of God. We believe in the divine inspiration, entire trustworthiness, and final authority of the Bible in all matters of faith and practice.

We believe in the triune God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, who is infinite in holiness and all perfections. He is all-powerful and all-knowing and is the Creator, Redeemer, Preserver, and Ruler of the universe.

We believe in the eternal and incarnate Son: Jesus Christ, who is fully God, fully man. He is the only begotten Son of God, born of the Virgin Mary, and the Savior of the world. He lives to make intercession for us at the right hand of God the Father.

We believe in the Holy Spirit who indwells every believer in Jesus Christ and keeps him or her by the power of God as Christians for all eternity. He empowers the worship, service, and witness of the people of God in all their activities.

We believe that humanity is created in the image of God but has fallen into sin by nature and by choice. The fall has adversely affected the entire created order and has separated humanity from a personal relationship with God.

We believe in salvation by grace received through faith in Jesus Christ, who alone, through His life, substitutionary death on the cross, and bodily resurrection, redeems us from sin and reconciles us to God.

We believe in the local church and are an autonomous New Testament congregation of believers in Jesus Christ. Our doctrine is Baptist, but at the same time, we believe in the essential unity of all believers, who together form one Church, diverse in form and expression, of which Christ is the Head.

We believe that Jesus has commanded every Christian to go into the entire world to make disciples of every people group, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and teaching them to observe all that has been commanded.

We believe that Jesus is coming again to this earth to judge the living and the dead.  Those who have trusted Him for salvation will go to be in heaven with their Lord and will receive their reward and their glorified, resurrected bodies.
