People who attend our church come from many types of different experiences and backgrounds. Some come from churches of different types such as Catholic, Presbyterian, Methodist, etc. Others come with no church or religious background at all. We are unique. We are a Christian evangelical church–a church whose primary purpose is to share the good news of Jesus Christ.
Our belief about Jesus?
We believe the Son, fully man, also fully God and co-eternal with the Father, entered time when He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin, Mary. He was crucified on a cross to make atonement for the sins of all mankind and then His body was resurrected from the dead, signifying that payment for sins has been made in full. He then ascended to heaven to return to His rightful place at the right hand of the Father and will someday return to earth to establish His absolute Kingdom here.
Our belief about the Holy Spirit?
We believe the Holy Spirit, also fully God and co-eternal with the Father and the Son, is of the same substance and nature. He convicts the world of sin, righteousness and judgement and upon conversion He indwells every believer and is the seal and the agent of their redemption and new birth. He sanctifies, guides, comforts, fills, witnesses to and is the source of infinite power for every believer to enable each one to fulfill all God desires for them to become and do.
Our belief about the Church?
We believe Jesus Christ is the Head of the Church and is building into a single Body those He has justified by His death, burial and resurrection. The Church is a living spiritual body of which Christ is the sovereign Lord both locally and world wide. The Church’s obligation is to seek out and gather in others to the kingdom of God, and to join together regularly for worship, fellowship, teaching, and prayer. It is to be characterized with bearing with one another’s weaknesses, burdens, and failures. It is also to minister to those who are in need with the abilities and resources that God has given to it. The Church is to grow in spiritual maturity, encourage one another to love and to good works, and to maintain the ordinances established by Christ. The ordinances of the Church are Baptism, signifying our identification with Him in His death, burial, and resurrection and the Lord’s Supper, commemorating and proclaiming the Lord’s death, burial and resurrection until He comes.
Our belief about the Bible?
We believe the Bible is the living and Spirit inspired revelation of God. As God’s verbal and complete Word to mankind, the Bible is inerrant, accurate, infallible, and the final authority in all matters of faith and practice.
Our belief about Human Beings?
We believe God created man in His own image with the full capacity to enjoy fellowship and communication with Him. The first man, Adam, chose to disobey God, thereby sinning and breaking this fellowship. In doing so he brought upon himself and upon all generations of humanity after him condemnation and eternal separation from God and left mankind with no capacity to reestablish that relationship.
Our belief about God?
We believe there is one living God and He is revealed to be three Persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; sharing one divine nature they are equal in every way yet having different works that they do.
The Father is absolute in Holiness and authority, infinite in love, power, knowledge, and wisdom. He is actively involved in the affairs of men and is sovereign in all areas of rule and life; He is the source of all that exists.
Our belief about Salvation?
We believe Jesus, the Christ, the Son of God, lived a sinless life on earth and chose to please His Father by submitting to death on a cross and to having His blood shed. This gruesome death was accepted by God as a substitutionary sacrifice to make atonement for the sins of mankind. Therefore, all who submit to the Lordship of Christ and trust in the death of Jesus to pay for their sins are justified before God and are assured of being welcomed to Heaven upon their own deaths.
