We believe God is the creator of mankind and all things seen and unseen. He has chosen to reveal himself in a triune manner—God the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. There is no other God but him.
We believe mankind was created by God in His own image, willingly sinned against God, and is separated from God without hope except through Jesus Christ.
We believe Jesus Christ to be God’s eternal and only begotten Son, who was born of a virgin, died on a cross for the forgiveness of sins, and was raised back to life on the third day. He has ascended to heaven and someday will return.
Be believe salvation comes by God’s grace through faith in the blood of Jesus Christ. It is a free gift that cannot be earned or deserved. We believe the Bible to teaches that to receive Jesus as Savior one must believe, repent of sin, and be baptized, the practice of which we hold to be believer’s baptism by immersion.
We believe the Church to be the body of Christ, who is the head, founded on the day of Pentecost and consisting of all Christians everywhere. We believe the local church to be an autonomous body, which cooperates with many Christian agencies, but is regulated or dominated by none.
The Holy Spirit
We believe the Holy Spirit dwells in every Christian and encourages, guides, comforts, and transforms us to be like Jesus. The gift of the Holy Spirit is received at baptism and empowers individual believers with gifts meant to further the mission of the Church.
We believe the Bible is the absolute truth and inspired word of God. It is the final authority on matters of faith and belief.
We believe that Christians should experience the real presence of Christ, through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit as they recall those events related to Jesus sacrificial death on the cross and show proper respect and appreciation for His ultimate sacrifice through which we have forgiveness of sin.
We believe it is God’s plan for the Elders to lead (shepherd and lovingly guide) the local church by example and their leadership is accountable to God. The Elders are the final authority in the interpretation of scripture.
