About the Bible

We believe that the Bible is completely true, is uniquely and fully inspired by God and is the ultimate authority on all issues in the faith and practice of Christianity.


About God

We believe in only one God, the Creator of all things, perfect and existing as three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The three equal persons of God have different qualities and functions.  


About Jesus Christ

We believe Jesus Christ is truly God and he became truly man, united in one person.  Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born by a virgin.  He died on a cross, the sacrifice for our sins.  Three days later, he physically rose from the dead and ascended into the presence of God.


About the Holy Spirit

We believe in the Holy Spirit’s presence in the life of every Christian.  He provides godly guidance and godly power in our lives.


About People

We believe all people are created in the image of God and eternally loved by Him.  However, because of our rebellion against God, we became separated from God, and if we remain apart from Christ, we are forever condemned by our own choices.


About Salvation

We believe that salvation is both the forgiveness of our sins and the restoration of a proper relationship with our Creator.  Our salvation is from God and is a free gift found only in Jesus Christ.  God transfers his purity to us when we put our faith in only Christ for our salvation. 


About the Church

We believe the Church consists of everyone who has received forgiveness through Jesus Christ.  The universal Church is expressed in local congregations throughout the world.  We value and respect all of God’s people and desire to partner with other churches in love and unity.


About the Return of Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ will physically return to the earth to judge all who have ever lived, and to complete history and the eternal plan of God.  Jesus will establish a new heaven and new earth where we will live and God will reign forever.
