What We Believe

Doctrinally, we believe:

  • Jesus Christ is the one and only Son of God, who died for our sins and arose from the dead. 1 Corinthians 15:1-8 John 3:15
  • The Bible is the inspired Word of God - a real and relevant guide for how to live our lives. 2 Timothy 3:16 Psalm 119:105
  • All people are tremendously valuable but have sinned and fallen short of God’s high standards. Genesis 1:31 Romans 3:23
  • Forgiveness of sins and the promise of eternal life are available to those who trust Christ as Savior and Lord. John 3:16
  • Those accepting Christ should repent of sin, confess their faith, and be baptized into Him. Romans 10:9 Acts 2:38
  • The Church is the Body of Christ on Earth, is empowered by the Holy Spirit, and exists to lead non-believers to Christ and edify those who are in Christ. Ephesians 4:1-6
  • Jesus Christ will one day return, take home His church and reign forever as King of kings and Lord of lords. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
