What do we believe?

Statements of Faith


We believe the Bible to be the only inspired, infallible Word of God.

We believe in one God. The Godhead consists of three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and these three are the same in essence, equal in power and glory.

We believe in salvation by grace alone through faith alone, to the glory of God alone.

We believe in the Deity of Jesus Christ, in His incarnation, His virgin birth, His atoning death, His bodily resurrection, and in His ascension to the right hand of the Father. All temporal and eternal blessings come to us from God and are mediated to us via the cross.

We believe in the perseverance of the saints by the grace of God.

We believe in the present day ministry of the Holy Spirit in regeneration, sanctification, baptism, sealing, filling and that He empowers the believer with spiritual gifts, for the building up of the body of Christ and the fulfillment of the great commission.

We believe in one holy united Church built upon the foundation of the Apostles and Prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone. He has given to the Church some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers for the equipping of the saints for the work of service to the building up of the body of Christ.

We believe that Christ has provided for the rule and care of His Church in elders and deacons and that the Church universal is made visible in the Church local.

We recognize two sacraments instituted by Christ in the New Testament; Baptism and the Lord’s Supper, which, by physical signs, Christ and the benefits of the New Covenant are represented, sealed and applied to believers by faith.

We believe in the personal Second Coming of Jesus Christ in power and great glory.

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, they that are saved unto the resurrection of eternal life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of eternal punishment.

We believe that sexual purity is a necessary expression for all of God’s children and requires abstinence from adultery, fornication, pornography, incest, homosexuality, or other sexual relationships or practices forbidden by Scripture.

We believe that marriage is a sacred institution established by God and is the uniting of one man and one woman in covenant commitment for a lifetime.

We believe in the sanctity of human life. Since man is created in God’s image, human life is of inestimable worth and significance in all its dimensions, from conception to the grave.
