What We Believe

In Essential beliefs we find unity.

In Non-Essentials, we have liberty.

In all our beliefs, we show charity


The Bible is the Word of God.

God’s Word is the only completely reliable and truthful authority and we accept the Bible as our manual for living. Our first question when faced with a decision is, “What does the Bible say?” We practice daily Bible reading and Bible survey. The Bible is the basis for all we believe. (1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Timothy 3:16).


Jesus is the Son of God.

Jesus Christ, lived a sinless life on earth and voluntarily paid for our sins by dying on the cross as our substitute. Salvation is available for all who trust in Him alone. He rose from the dead and is the only mediator between God and us. He baptizes believers in the Holy Spirit and will return to earth to consummate history. (John 14:6; Acts 4:11-12)


You must be saved.

God created humans to have fellowship with Him, but they defied God by sinfully going their own way. As a result, we need God’s saving grace to end our alienation from Him. Salvation is a gift God’s grace – not human effort – and must be received personally by repentance and faith. Everyone will experience bodily resurrection and judgement. Only believers will enjoy eternity with God. (2 Cor. 5:17; Matt. 16:25)


Believers can be led and filled with the Spirit.

We believe the only way possible to live the Christian life is by God’s power within us. Every believer can be filled with the Holy Spirit simply by asking. We see to practice a daily dependence on God’s Spirit to enable us to do what is right. 
(Luke 11:13; Acts 1:8; Ephesians 5:18)
