Our Beliefs

Our beliefs are not innovative. Anyone familiar with historical Christian teaching will find these statements fall well within the boundaries of evangelical theology. (Evangelical means theology derived from the evangel , or the Gospel. In other words, it's biblical theology rather than speculative theology or theology rooted in tradition.)

Our core beliefs are centered in Christ and His message as supported by Scripture. More obscure doctrine, as well as controversial issues about which the Bible is silent, are not taught, endorsed or adhered to by our church. On these issues we take no official/dogmatic position. We believe that the main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing. The main thing is Christ, Him crucified and God's Holy Word as our final authority for faith and practice of the Lord's church. What follows is a summary of what we believe straight from the Bible.

1)  We believe the Bible to be the only infallible, inspired, authoritative Word of God. As such it is our final authority for all matters of faith and Christian practice.  (2 Timothy 3:14-16)

2)  We believe that there is one God eternally existing in three persons - Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He is the Creator of all things.  (Genesis 1:1; John 1:1; Matthew 3:16-17; 2 Corinthians 13:14)

3)  We believe in Jesus Christ, God in human flesh, born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, came to this world to die for our sins, and was bodily raised from the dead.  (Luke 1:34-35; 1 Corinthians 15:1-8; Hebrews 4:15)

4)  We believe that Jesus will return to earth physically a second time.  (Acts 1:11; Revelation 19:11-16)

5)  We believe in the Holy Spirit, who is an active and operative part of the triune God, and who dwells in every Christian.  (John 16:5-15; Acts 1:7-8; Romans 8:26-27; 1 Corinthians 3:16;  1 Corinthians 6:19; 2 Timothy 1:14)

6)  We believe that man, created by God, willfully sinned and as a result is lost and without hope apart from receiving Jesus Christ.  (Romans 3:23; 6:23; Acts 4:12)

7)  We believe that salvation - forgiveness of sins - is available only by the grace of God through the blood of Jesus Christ. This free gift of forgiveness is offered to all who receive Christ as Lord and Savior.  (Ephesians 2:8-9; Colossians 2:6; John 3:16)

8)  We believe the Bible clearly teaches the pattern to receive Christ is to believe in Jesus as God's Son and Savior of the world, repent of personal sin, confess Christ publicly, and be baptized.  (Romans 10:9; Acts 2:36-38; Mark 16:16)

9)  We believe that death seals the eternity of each person. Those who are forgiven will spend eternity with God in heaven; those not forgiven will be eternally separated from God in hell.  (Hebrews 9:27; John 5:28-29; Daniel 12:2; 2 Corinthians 4:14; Acts 17:31)

10)  We believe that the Church is the body and bride of Christ on earth, founded on the day of Pentecost, consisting of all Christians everywhere.  (Matthew 16:13-18; Acts 2:14-47)

11)  We believe the Bible teaches that the Elders are to exercise authority over the local congregation.  (Acts 20:28; Philippians 1:1; 1 Timothy 3:1-7; Titus 1:5-9; 1 Peter 5:1-4)

12)  We believe that full immersion under water is the prescribed mode of baptism as indicated by Jesus' own example and command, and best depicts our union in His death, burial, and resurrection. (Mark 1:9-10; Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:4)
