Beliefs

We believe that the Bible is the inspired, authoritative, inerrant, infallible word of God, and is our standard and guide for faith and practice.

We believe that there is only one true and living God who is manifested in three eternal and coequal persons-Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe that human beings are created in the image of God, but through Adam’s fall are now sinful, lost, and stand condemned.  By deliberate choice, all participate in sin, which is open rebellion to God’s law.  However, in spite of the fall, all human life through creation has value and dignity.

We believe that human beings can be forgiven of sin and justified before God solely through the redeeming work of Jesus Christ who died for sinners and rose again from the dead.  Only by repentance from sin and faith in Jesus Christ the Lord can acceptance with God be attained.  We deny that salvation can be attained by any other means.

We believe that regeneration is the work of the Holy Spirit by which the believer receives a new nature and eternal life from God.

We believe that the church in its widest sense includes all believers of all ages.  The church is manifested visibly in the local body of believers who covenant together to worship, observe the ordinances, and evangelize.

We believe that Jesus Christ will eventually return visibly, at which time He will raise the dead and judge all people.  Believers will enjoy an eternal state of blessedness in Heaven, while unbelievers will experience eternal separation from God.

We believe that the church has been called to preach the gospel so that individual people can receive salvation. Also, the church is to become involved in the improvement of society by advocating biblical principles, which help eliminate poverty, racism, violence, and forms of injustice against humankind.

We believe that God’s design for men and women is either to be joined together in heterosexual monogamy (marriage) or to live in a celibate single state. All other sexual practices are incompatible with biblical teachings.
