We believe in ...
The Triune God
God is one being who is expressed in three distinct persons, namely, God, the Father, God, the Son, Jesus Christ and God, the Holy Spirit. (Isaiah 44:6; Matthew 3:16-17; Matthew 28:19)
The Old and New Testaments of the Bible
The Bible is the Word of God and without error in its original form. It reveals who God is and His plans and purposes for our lives. (Proverbs 30:5; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20; Psalms 119:105)
God created humankind, man and woman, in His original image as pure and faultless
Sin entered the world through humankind’s disobedience and resulted in all peoples having a sinful nature/condition and thereby separated from God and in need of salvation and transformation. (Genesis 1:26; Romans 5:12; Isaiah 59:2; Romans 6:23)
God provided the necessary salvation from sin and its consequences by sending His only Son, Jesus Christ to live on this earth and die on a cross in our place
His death and subsequent resurrection was more than sufficient to redeem us from our bondage to sin and all its consequences. (John 3:16; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Romans 8:3-4; Titus 2:13-14)
We receive this salvation when we choose to turn from our sinful lifestyle (to repent) and instead choose to believe (have faith) in the person and work of Jesus Christ and follow Him all the rest of our days
This salvation is a free gift from God, it cannot be obtained through self-improvement or good deeds. (Acts 3:19; Acts 16:31; John 3:36; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:3-7)
God's Holy Spirit who lives inside of every saved person in a spiritual, yet very real way
The Holy Spirit’s presence and power helps transform us into the kind of people that God desires us to be and gives us the power to serve God with effectiveness (Romans 8:9-11; Galatians 5:16-25; 1 Corinthians 12:1-11; Acts 1:8)
The Church is the tangible expression of the body of Christ, both universally and locally
The Church is made up of all peoples who have received salvation from their sins by faith. The Church’s primary purpose is to be active in extending the kingdom of God on earth by telling of the gospel and the love of God in both word and action. (Ephesians 1:22-23; Ephesians 2:19-22; Matthew 28:18-20 and 1 Corinthians 12)
One day, Jesus Christ will return to earth in a visible way
His imminent return is what gives believers hope for life in the present hardships as well as the future glory that awaits. Those who have chosen to put their faith in Christ will spend eternity in a real place, called heaven; while those who do not receive Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord, will spend eternity in a real place called hell. (1 Thessalonians 4:13-17; Titus 2:11-14, Romans 8:17; Philippians 3:21; Luke 16:19-31)

Our church is ...
We worship God because of who He is and what He has done for us. We value worship. Therefore, we provide opportunities for people to gather together to give credit and honor to God for who He is (all powerful, wise, merciful, etc.) and what He has done for us (giving us salvation from sin, eternal life in heaven) (Daniel 2:20-23; James 5:11; John 3:16-17).
We live by God’s Word, the Bible because it guides us to intimacy with God and a life that ultimately satisfies. We value the Bible. We believe it is the very words of God. It is like a guidebook for how to live our life in this world in a way that not only pleases God, but also gives us the most fulfillment. The Bible is divine – a holy book, it is timeless – it transcends time; it is alive – it relevant to meet the issues of today; it is truthful – the standard for absolute truth; and it provides spiritual nourishment to our souls (Psalms 119:105; 2 Peter 2:20-21; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; Matthew 24:34-35; Hebrews 4:12; Psalm 33:4; Matthew 4:4).
We share the story of Jesus because it is the only way to receive salvation from sin and have a relationship with God. We value the Gospel. It is a message about Jesus Christ; who he is and what he did for us by dying on a cross. It is a message that is worth telling to others. There are lots of things that we can do as a church, but our main mission is to tell the story of Jesus to anyone who will listen. Man and woman’s deepest need is salvation from sin and all its consequences. We receive that salvation by faith in the person and work of Jesus (Romans 3:23; 6:23; 1 Peter 2:21-24; 1 Corinthians 15:3-5; Acts 4:12).
We use our God-given resources to serve others because it demonstrates God’s love clearly. We value serving others. God has given each of us resources that He desires us to put to use. He wants us to be active and wise in the use of our resources, which skills, talents, gifts, or possessions that He has given us. We act most like Jesus when we use what we have to serve others, rather than to serve ourselves. The people whom we are to serve are those not only in the church, but those in the community around us as well (1 Corinthians 4:7; Matthew 25:14-30; Luke 10:30-42; Mark 10:45).
