What we

Believe

If you declare with your mouth,

"Jesus is Lord,"

and believe in your heart 

that God raised him from the dead,

you will be saved.

Romans 8:9

We affirm

and believe

the

following

9

core,

historic beliefs

#1

There is one triune god

There is only one true and living God who is the Creator of the universe.

 

He exists eternally in three persons – the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.​

#2

The bible is God's word

The Bible is God’s written revelation

of Himself to mankind,

divinely given through human authors who were inspired by the Holy Spirit.

 

It is entirely true,

totally sufficient,

and completely authoritative

for matters of life and faith.

#3

People are created in god's image

Human Beings are created by God

to bear His image.

They are the crowning work of His creation worthy of love,

dignity,

and respect

regardless of matters like

age, race, gender, or class.

#4

People are in need of redemption

Because of the Fall,

the image of God in people

is distorted but not lost.

 

All people have disobeyed God

willfully through sin;

thus inheriting both physical and spiritual death and the need for redemption.

 

All human beings are born with a sin nature

and into an environment inclined toward sin.

 

Only by the grace of God, through Jesus Christ, can they experience salvation.

#5

Jesus is both lord and christ

Jesus is both fully God and fully human.

 

He was born of a virgin,

lived a sinless life,

died on the cross

as a substitute for mankind,

was raised from the dead,

ascended into heaven,

and will one day return.

#6

Jesus is the only way of salvation

Salvation comes only through Jesus Christ,

the only mediator between God and man.

 

No other religion, belief, or person

can reconcile God and man.

 

He alone can provide

forgiveness and eternal salvation.

#7

Salvation is by faith alone

Salvation comes only through a faith relationship with Jesus Christ, the Savior,

as a person repents of sin

and receives Christ’s forgiveness and eternal life.

 

Salvation is instantaneous and accomplished solely by the power of the Holy Spirit

through the Word of God.

 

This salvation is wholly of God

by grace on the basis of

Christ’s life, death, and resurrection,

not on the basis of human works.

 

All the redeemed are secured in Christ forever.

#8

The Church is christ's body

The Holy Spirit immediately places

all people who put their faith in Jesus Christ

into one united spiritual body, the Church,

of which Christ is the head.

#9

Jesus Christ will return

God will bring the world

to its appropriate end

in His own time and in His own way.

At that time, Jesus Christ will return

personally and visibly in glory to the earth.

 

Christ will judge both the saved and unsaved.

 

Those who have trusted Christ

will receive a glorified body

and dwell forever with the Lord.
