As an independent Christian church, we tend to stay away from creeds. However, we know it can be helpful at times to have doctrine summarized.
We Believe in the deity of God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the personal Holy Spirit, and that they make up the Godhead, three in one.
We Believe the Bible is the inspired revelation of God. It is what we teach, preach and govern our congregation and personal lives by.
We Believe in the truth of the virgin birth of Jesus, His literal resurrection and His imminent return.
We Believe God created all that there is out of nothing, and mankind was created in His image.
We Believe every person has worth as a creation of God, but that all have sinned and have fallen short of the glory of God.
We Believe forgiveness of sins and the promise of eternal life are available to all through Jesus Christ. Those accepting Jesus should repent of sin, confess their faith and be baptized (immersed) for the forgiveness of sins.
We Believe we are saved by grace through faith. We cannot earn our salvation, it is a gift. But, we must be willing to receive it by faith.
We Believe we are not the only Christians, but we do desire to be Christians only. We believe that Christians should find unity based up on God's word, and that God ’s word should not be compromised for the sake of unity.
We believe the gift of speaking in tongues was used to help establish the New Testament Church, but is not an expression of the Spirit that we practice or promote in our services today.
We believe heaven and hell are real and everlasting, and will be the places of eternal reward and punishment, respectively, based upon ones relationship with Jesus.
We believe nothing can snatch a Christian from God’s hand once he is saved. However, a Christian – hardened by the deceitfulness of sin - can choose to turn away from Jesus and forfeit his salvation.
We believe the teaching and example in the Bible concerning the Lord ’s Supper is for a communion open to all Christians, and observed weekly.
We believe the Church exists to love God and love people.
