The Bible

We believe that the sixty-six books of the Bible are verbally inspired (God-breathed) and without error in the original languages and that they are the supreme and final authority in matters of faith and practice. (II Timothy 3:15-17)

The Father

We believe that God is supreme in His person, eternal in His being, absolute in His Attributes, and glorious in His perfection. We believe in one Triune God, Creator of heaven and earth, and that God is manifest in three persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory. (Exodus 20:2-3, Deuteronomy 6:4-5, Matthew 28:19-20)

The Son

We believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, that He was conceived without sin by the Holy Spirit and was born of the Virgin Mary. He lived without sin and died a vicarious death, rose bodily from the dead, ascended bodily into heaven, from whence He will come again to rapture believers and raise the righteous dead, and that He will rule and reign for one thousand years upon the throne of His forefather, David, in Jerusalem. (Isaiah 7:14, John 1:1, 14; Galatians 4:4)

The Holy Spirit

We believe in the Holy Spirit, that He is a Divine Person equal with God the Father and the Son. He convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment and indwells every believer. He inspired the writers of the Bible and fills believers with power for service. However, we believe the temporary "sign gifts" ceased with the complete revelation of Scripture, including speaking in tongues and miracles of healing. (John 3:5, Ephesians 1:13)


We believe that man was created in the image of God, but that he sinned and incurred not only physical death but spiritual death (separation from God) and that all human beings, therefore, are born with a sinful nature and are also sinners by choice. The wages of sin is death and death has passed upon all men and women. (Genesis 1:27, Isaiah 53:6; Romans 3:23; 5:12 -19; 6:23)


We believe that salvation is by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, that it is the free gift of God and not of works, lest any man should boast. Salvation is only accomplished by the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, as men and women put their personal faith and trust in Him. (John 3:36; Acts 16:31; Ephesians 2: 8 - 10)

The Church

We believe that the local church is an autonomous, baptized body of believers unified together by their faith in Christ, preaching His Word, practicing His teachings, and obeying His command to go into all the world with the gospel. The ordinances of the church are two-fold, baptism and the Lord's Supper. Christ is the Head of the Church. (Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 20:28; Ephesians 1:22-23

Heaven & Hell

We believe in the eternal blessedness of the saved in heaven, and the eternal punishment of the lost in hell. Heaven is a place that Christ has prepared for His own. Hell is a place prepared for the devil and his angels. Men and women will go there because they are lost sinners and reject God's free offer of salvation in Christ (Mark 9:43-48; Luke 16:19-31; John 14:1-3; Revelation 3:12; 20:14-15; 21:4)
