What We Believe
We believe in the trinity; God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. -John 1:1-14, John 10:30; John 14:15-18
We believe that Jesus is the Christ the Son of the living God. -Matthew 16:13-20
We believe He was born of a virgin, died for our sins, and arose bodily from the grave. -Luke 1:26-38, I Corinthians 15:3, Romans 14:9
We believe that the Bible is God’s perfect Word useful for teaching, correcting, and training in righteousness.
2 Timothy 3:16-17
We believe the blood of Christ cleanses us from all sin. -1 John 1:7-9
We believe that the Lord’s Supper (Communion) is a memorial that should be taken each week. The bread represents the Lord’s body and the cup represents His blood. -Matthew 26:26-29 & Acts 20:7
We believe that a person becomes a Christian by:
1. Hearing the word (of the gospel) - Acts 15:7, John 17:20, Romans 10:17
2. Believing in Christ – John 20:31; Acts 8:37
-Believing the gospel (the death, burial, resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ) – Acts 2:14-42; Acts 1:9
3. Repenting of their sins – Luke 24:46,47; Acts 2:38; Acts 17:30
4. Confessing Christ openly – Romans 10:9; Matthew 10:32; Acts 8:37
5. Being baptized (by immersion) for the remission of sins – Acts 2:38 ;Acts 8:38,39; Romans 6:4,5.
We believe in the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the presence and power of God in our lives. We receive the Holy Spirit when we become a Christian. The Holy Spirit helps us to understand Scripture and live the Christian life. -Acts 2:38 & Romans 8:10-14)
We believe that the church is the body of Christ with Christ as our head. Jesus is Lord over His church.(Colossians 1:18)
We believe in the power of prayer. God hears our prayers and answers them. (1 Timothy 2:8 & James 5:16)
We believe in the Great Commission. We are to take the gospel to all of the world. (Mark 16:15-16; Matthew 28:18-20)
Where the Bible speaks, we speak. Where the Bible is silent, we are silent. No book but the Bible, No creed but Christ.
