Our core beliefs

We believe in Jesus Christ, God's one and only Son, our one and only Savior, who was born Jesus of Nazareth, both fully human and fully divine, conceived of the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary.  Who suffered and was crucified under Pontius Pilate.  Who died and was buried and who rose again bodily from the dead on the third day.  Who ascended into Heaven and now sits at the right hand of the Father; and who will return to earth to judge both the living and the dead.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, who encourages, guides, comforts and transforms believers

into the way of Christ.

We believe the Bible is the inspired, written Word of God and the authoritative rule from all

matters of faith and practice.

We believe that Man, created by God, willfully sinned against God and is consequently lost and

without hope apart from Jesus Christ.  

We believe that Salvation is a gift offered to us by God's grace apart from any personal work or achievement.  Salvation from sin is the common need of all people and can only be found through belief in Jesus Christ.

We believe the response to God's offer of salvation is to receive Jesus as Lord and Savior through confession of that truth. In that confession, we become washed cleaned of sin by His blood and become a new creation. This truth is  outwardly demonstrated through baptism, as the old life is buried and new life is born. 

Our lives, through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, lead us in our new nature as we become

transformed in Jesus and live according to His Word and will.

We believe that God has ordained that the elders are to exercise spiritual leadership and authority

over the local church.

We believe in the personal and visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ to earth and the establishment of His kingdom.  We believe in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment, the eternal happiness of the righteous, and the endless suffering of the wicked.
