About Us

What We Believe

  • There is one God, who is infinitely perfect, existing eternally in three co-equal persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. I Peter 1:2
  • Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He lived a sinless life and offered himself as the perfect and sinless sacrifice for all sins on the Cross. He arose from the dead after three days to conquer sin and death. He ascended to the right hand of the Father and will return again. Matthew 1:22,23; 1 Corinthians 15:3,4; Hebrews 4:14,15
  • The Holy Spirit is a divine person, sent to reveal all truth to the apostles, to empower the believer, and convict the world of sin, of righteousness and judgment. John 16:7-13; Romans 5:5; Ephesians1:13
  • The Bible, inerrant as originally given, was inspired by God and is a complete revelation of His will for all men. It constitutes the divine and only rule of Christian faith and practice. 2 Timothy 1:13; 3:16
  • Salvation is about reconciling man to God. It is evidenced by repentance, confession, baptism by immersion, and a life committed to His service. John 1:12; Galatians 3:26; Titus 3:5
  • All people are made in the image of God but have been marred by sin. Sin is what separates us from God, and we must be reconciled to God through Jesus Christ. Genesis 1:27; Romans 3:23; 5:12
  • Baptism is an act of obedience commanded by Christ. We believe in baptism by immersion as practiced by the apostles. Matthew 3:13-17; Acts 2:38, 10:47-48
  • Communion is a memorial, new covenant, and proclamation. It is a sacred event for those who have a biblical relationship with Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 11: 23-30
  • We are an Independent Christian Church. While recognizing the value of associating with other groups of Christians, we believe the local church should be elder-governed. Acts 14:23; 1 Timothy 5:17
