We believe:

  • The Scriptures are true, sufficient and our highest authority.
  • There is only one living and true God, Creator of heaven and earth, who eternally exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • All humanity is sinful both by birth and individual choice.
  • The penalty for sin is physical and spiritual death.
  • Jesus Christ was born of a virgin and is both fully God and fully man.
  • Jesus Christ died for the payment of the sins of the world.  He then physically rose from the dead, conquering death and providing salvation to all who believe.
  • Those who do not turn from sin and to Jesus will face eternal punishment.
  • Only through faith in Jesus and repentance from sin can one be reconciled to God and experience true life and joy.
  • Baptism is intended for those who have professed faith in Jesus Christ.  We baptize by immersion because of the actual meaning of the word, but also because it is a picture of the reality to which baptism points - our death and resurrection in Christ.
  • We believe followers of the Jesus should actually follow Jesus by obedience to the Word of God.
  • We believe the biblical position of marriage involved the union of one man and one woman.
  • For a detailed explanation of these beliefs, and others, review our constitution.
