God

We believe there is one God who eternally exists in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

Jesus

We believe that Jesus is the virgin-born Son of God who is fully God and fully man. He lived a perfect life, died a sacrificial death on the cross, was buried, rose from the grave, and ascended into heaven. He will one day return to earth.

The Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit calls people to repent of sin and believe in Jesus for salvation. He also comforts and guides every believer.

The Bible

We believe the Bible is God’s Word without any error and serves as the only authority for both life and faith.

People

We believe that people are a unique creation of God, made in His own image, and have worth. Because of Adam’s sin, all are born sinners and stand in need of salvation.

Salvation

We believe salvation is a gracious gift that is received by repenting of sin and placing faith in Jesus Christ as Lord. We believe that everyone who has truly trusted in Jesus has an eternally secure salvation. We believe that people who die without a relationship with Jesus spend eternity separated from Him in hell. However, those that have trusted in Jesus spend eternity with Him in heaven.

Baptism

We believe that baptism is by immersion following salvation and is an act of obedience to the command and example of Jesus.

The Church

We believe the church is a local body of baptized believers that are led by Jesus.
