In The Gospel
We Believe In The GospelThat man, created by God, willfully sinned against God and is consequently lost and without hope apart from Jesus Christ. That salvation—the forgiveness of sins—is only by grace through the blood of Jesus Christ. That one receives salvation by putting faith in Christ, repenting of sin, and confessing Christ, and that the Bible commands every believer in Christ to be baptized. That those who have received salvation through faith in Jesus Christ are sent into the world to proclaim the Gospel and to love and serve the world just as Jesus Himself did.
We Believe In One God: Father, Son, and Holy SpiritWe believe in God the Father Almighty, Creator of all things visible and invisible. We believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the eternal Word, the one and only Savior. He Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, both fully human and fully divine. He lived a sinless life. He suffered and was crucified as an atonement for sin. He rose again bodily from the dead on the third day. He ascended into Heaven and He will return in victory to rule forever. We believe in the Holy Spirit. Who convicts of sin. Who indwells every Christian. Who helps us in our weakness and intercedes for us in prayer. Who empowers us to a fruitful Christian life.
We Believe In The Bible: God's WordWe believe God inspired the original writings of the Scripture and those original writings were consequently without error. We believe that the Bible is the final authority for all matters of faith, truth, morality, and Christian living. We believe the Bible teaches that God is the Creator and Sustainer of human life; that God creates each person in His image; and that life is therefore sacred, from conception to natural death.
We Believe In The ChurchWe believe in the Church of Jesus Christ, founded on the Day of Pentecost, consisting of all Christians everywhere, and organized into local assemblies, called churches. We believe the Bible teaches that every Christian should be an active member of a local church. We believe that the Elders of the church are the overseers of its affairs and the shepherds of its members and that they participate in the oversight, instruction, edification, discipline, and restoration of church members. We believe that the Bible instructs church members to: - Meet together for fellowship, worship, teaching, & the Lord's Table. - Use their natural abilities and spiritual gifts to serve one another. - Love one another, accept one another, and forgive one another. - Seek unity, agreement, and peace with one another. - Encourage and build up one another. - Share each other's burdens and pray for one another. - Support the church financially. - Pursue personal holiness and obedience to God's Word. - Strive together to fulfill the Great Commission - to proclaim the Gospel.
