What we believe

About the Bible
The Bible is the Word of God and is without error. Holy men of God were inspired by the Spirit of God to write the very words of Scripture.  2 Timothy 3:16-17 ; 2 Peter 1:20-21

About God
God is three in one, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is the one, and only living and true God. He is the creator of the universe.  Genesis 1:27; John 1:1-5; 10:10; 1 Peter 1:1-2

About Salvation
We are born with a sin nature and must be saved. Man was created without sin, but chose to separate himself from God and is incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through his own efforts alone.  Romans 3:10; 3:23
Salvation is from God, by His grace alone, and for everyone that will call upon the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, believe in His death and resurrection and ask for His forgiveness. The believer is secure in salvation for all eternity as the grace and power of God maintains salvation.  Romans 5:8; 10:9-10, 13; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 10:29-30

About the Church
The local church is a called out body of believers that have chosen to band together to accomplish the purpose of the church. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by loving Him and by making Him known to the lost world.  Ephesians 3:8-11
Jesus Christ founded the local Church. He is the Head of the church and we are gifted and called to serve Him through the local, New Testament based Church.  Ephesians 4:15; 1 Corinthians 12-14; 1 Peter 2:4-10
Christ commanded Christians through the church to go with His message, see people saved, baptize them and teach and train them to participate in the continuation of this process until His promised return.  Matthew 28:18-20; Mark 16:14-16; Luke 24:45-48; John 20:21; Acts 1:8

About The Ordinances
Baptism is a picture of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. It has no power in salvation, but is an act of obedience for the Christian and provides a public statement of one's salvation. Baptism falls under the authority of the local church and is an ordinance to be observed by the local church.  Acts 8:36-40
The Lord's Supper commemorates Christ's love for the church. It does not have the power to save. The bread is a symbol of His body and the juice is a symbol of His blood.  Matthew 26:26-30; 1 Corinthians 11:17-34
