What We Believe:
We believe Jesus is the Son of God, He became man, lived a perfect sinless life, died on a cross, then rose to life on the third day. We believe He is now living in Heaven and will return to earth one day as He promised.
We believe in the inerrancy of the Holy Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments. We believe they were authored by the Holy Spirit through His servants. We believe these 66 books are the complete divine revelation given to His church and they contain everything needed for instruction in this life and walk of faith.
We believe in one God triune, three distinct persons in one essence – God the Father, God the Son & God the Holy Spirit. We believe God has no beginning or end.
We believe the Father is the Creator of all things and is Sovereign over all things.
We believe the Son is the long-promised Christ sent to save all who believe.
We believe the Holy Spirit is given to guide all who believe.
We believe the Church is the community of believers joined together in the common faith throughout the ages, sustained by the Holy Spirit, maintaining the fellowship of love as Jesus taught us.
We believe salvation is by Grace alone through faith alone.
We believe good works are the natural outcome of faith.
