Beliefs

God...

is the creator and sustainer of the universe. He is one in his essential being yet three in person - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ...

is the divine Son of God, the exact representation of the invisible God. He is the Savior and Lord of mankind, having purchased our redemption from sin through his death and resurrection.

The Holy Spirit...

is the divine Comforter and Counselor who convicts sinners and guides believers in whom He dwells. The fruit of the Spirit is the primary evidence of the Spirit’s work in the life of the believer (Galatians 5:22-23)

The Bible...

is inspired by God, and is His unique, full, and final authority on all matters of faith and Christian living (2 Timothy 3:16).

Salvation by faith...

is the result of believing in Jesus, repenting of sin, confessing Jesus as Lord, and being baptized by immersion (Acts 2:38).

Evangelism...

is our responsibility in sharing the gospel of Christ with people at home and around the world. We maintain that all believers are empowered by the Holy Spirit to participate in this task.

The Church...

is the body of Christ, made up of all who are born again, and is manifest to the world through the assembling of local congregations (1 Corinthians 12:27).

Racial Reconciliation...

is achieved as we open our hearts in Christ. As God has mandated reconciliation, the church must accept people of all ethnic backgrounds together as a part of one body (2 Corinthians 5:18-20).

The Return of Christ...

will be visible and physical, in power and glory to judge the peoples of the world and take his followers to a new heaven and earth (1 Thessalonians 5:16).
