Our Core Beliefs

We Believe in God
We believe God is and that He has spoken and desires a relationship with us. He is the ultimate source of all truth.

We Believe the Bible
We believe the Bible is God’s inspired message to us that reveals His nature, His truth and His plan for our lives. We believe it is our guidebook for living. It has been scrutinized and ridiculed, but it has stood the test of time.

We Believe God is the Creator
We believe that everything begins with God. He is the architect and creator of the universe. We see His fingerprint everywhere. He created mankind in His image.

We Believe in the Godhead
We believe in God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. They are one and equal.

We Believe Jesus is the Divine Son of God
We believe that Jesus is fully God and fully man. He lived a perfect and sinless life. We believe it was love that motivated Him to willingly sacrifice His life for the sin of mankind.

We Believe in the Resurrection
We believe He literally, physically came back to life after being dead for three days and that He now sits at the right hand of the Father.

We Believe Jesus is the Way to Salvation
We believe that Jesus’ death on the cross is the only acceptable payment for our sins. Salvation is by faith alone; only those who have trusted Christ as their Savior will go to heaven. Nothing we do will get us there because salvation is not about what we “do” but about what He has “done”.

We Believe in a Personal Relationship with Jesus
We believe that we can know God personally. He came to give us abundant life. We believe you can be forgiven and become a new creation in Christ.

We Believe in the Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit is a person. He is the presence and power of God. We believe He lives in every person who is a Christ-follower. He guides and equips us for service in our journey through life.

We Believe in the Baptism in the Holy Spirit
We believe in the baptism in the Holy Spirit as a second work of grace. The baptism in the Holy Spirit, subsequent to conversion, releases the fullness of the Spirit and is evidenced by the fruits and gifts of the Holy Spirit.

We Believe in Water Baptism
We believe in a full immersion water baptism as an outward expression of what God has already done in an individual’s life and is a testimony to all that the person now belongs to Jesus. It declares the commitment we have made in accepting the sacrifice of Jesus Christ for the payment of our sins and boldly choosing to follow Him every day and everywhere. Water baptism is not a means to receive or achieve salvation; only by the blood of Jesus are we saved. (1 John 1:5-10)

We Believe in the Communion
The Lord’s Supper is a commemoration of the death of the Lord and is done in remembrance of Him until He comes again. We participate in communion on the first Sunday of every month.

We Believe in the Church
We believe that the church is the bride of Christ. We believe the church is God’s conduit for impacting the world with the love and message of Jesus Christ.

We Believe in a Life Mission
We believe that we must share the good news that has changed our lives. We can’t keep it to ourselves; we must give it away. We believe the Gospel has the power to change lives.

We Believe in Eternal Life
We believe Jesus is preparing a place for us and that He will literally come back again. We believe heaven and hell are real places. We believe those in Christ will live with Him forever and those who reject Christ as the Savior will be separated from Him forever.
