We believe that the books of the Old and New Testaments of the Bible constitute the Holy Scriptures. They are the inspired and infallibly written Word of God.
We believe in the one living and true God who is holy, loving, eternal, and Creator and Preserver of all things. Within this unity there are three persons of one essential nature, power and eternity—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
We believe in Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God. We believe in the deity of Christ, His virgin birth, and His sinless life. He died on the cross and was buried, to be a sacrifice for our sin, and to reconcile us to God through His shed blood. Christ rose bodily from the dead, ascended into Heaven and is at the right hand of God, the Father. We believe in His personal return when He will judge the living and the dead.
We believe that Christ’s work on the cross provides the complete redemption and atonement for the sins of mankind. We believe each person must personally accept what God has made possible by repenting of their sin and receiving Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. An individual receives this new life by faith and is then enabled to serve God with the will and affections of the heart.
The Holy Spirit
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling power and fullness enables the Christian to live a Godly life in this present world.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost. Those who put their faith in Jesus Christ are saved and will be resurrected to eternal life. Those who do not put their faith in Jesus Christ will ultimately be lost and eternally separated from God.
We value the spiritual growth that develops from an intimate personal faith relationship with Jesus Christ.
We believe that the Spirit of God dwells in the midst of united believers. Therefore, we value agreement and compliance with issues essential to eternal hope.
We value the hope that arises from knowing that the Bible is God’s true and authoritative Word and His expressed will for His people.
We value the growth and health that results from believers as they discover their spiritual gifts and invest them in ministering to others.
We value the hope that develops from knowing we are ordering our attitudes, actions, and decisions based on the authority of God’s Word.
We value the ways faith is strengthened within the safe and nurturing environment of a small group that meets regularly for study and prayer.
We value the creation of environments where people feel safe being who they are, believing that spiritual health and hope flourish from honest communication.
Because we desire to communicate a message of hope to a culture where hope is in short supply, we will value all legitimate means and methods that effectively connect with our culture.
