Here’s a concise, but not exhaustive, statement of our beliefs based upon the teachings of the Bible.

  • The entire Bible is God’s message to man and is to be studied and obeyed with humility and reverence.
  • Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God and was born of Mary, the virgin, being fully God and fully Man.
  • After living a sinless life, Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, taking the judgment which we deserve because of our sin against God.
  • Jesus arose from the grave the third day according to the Scriptures.
  • He alone is our great High Priest, making intercession for us before the Father.
  • In order for an individual to have eternal life, he must trust in Jesus’ death and shed blood as the payment for his sin.
  • Following a person’s faith in Christ, the Bible teaches that he is to be baptized by immersion in water as a testimony of his faith in Jesus Christ.
  • We believe that Christ securely keeps those who are saved.
  • All Christians are called to live lives of purity and being pleasing to God.
  • The local church is a body of baptized believers whose mission is not to reform the world but to give testimony to Christ and to serve Him.
  • At a point in the future, Christ will come to take the New Testament church to heaven. Later, He will return to earth with the church to establish His millennial kingdom on earth, in fulfillment of the promises which God made to the people of Israel.
  • God created the universe out of nothing in six literal, 24-hour days.
