We Believe

We are committed to helping people discover a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and enthusiastically become His disciples. As we whole-heartedly recognize Jesus as Lord, we look to His Scriptures as our rule and authority. Therein we learn that;

· God is the Creator and Sustainer of our world.  One day He will intervene in the course of history, and call upon every person to account for his or her actions.  (Gen. 1:1-28; Ps. 19:24:1-2; Acts 17:24-31)
· Jesus is the divine Son of God sent to live in our world.  We call upon each person who would serve with us to confess that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God. (Mt. 16:13-20: John 1:1-5; Phil. 2:5-11)
· Jesus died on the cross for the sins of mankind and rose from the dead to guarantee the eternal life of those who believe in Him.  He ascended into heaven and will someday return in glory. (Mt. 16:27; Luke 18:31-34; John 20:1-23; Acts 1:9-11; Rom. 3:21-26; 1 Co. 15:3-8)
· The Holy Spirit of God is active within our world and abides within the heart of each Christian, and guides our lives daily. (John 7:37-39; 14:26; Ro. 8:1-17)
· Christians come to salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ.  Faith is expressed  through belief, repentance, confession,     baptism by immersion, and living under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. (Acts 2:36-41; 16:29-34; Ro. 6:1-7; 10:9; Heb. 11:1-6; 1 John 1:7)
· The Bible is the divinely inspired Word of  God, and it reveals God’s will for His Church. (Is. 55:8-11; John 5:39; Acts 4:25; Heb. 4:12-13)
· The Lord’s Supper is the central act in  Christian worship.  The loaf and the cup represent the body and blood of our Lord. It is observed each Lord’s Day. (Mt. 26:26-30; Acts 20:7; 1 Co. 11:23-30)
· The church is the Body of Christ.  It is a living organism which Christ, as He is head of the Church, rules. (Eph. 1:20-23; 2:19-22; Col. 1:15-23;1 Co. 12:12-31)
· All that we are and all that we have is a gift from God.  We return our tithes and offerings to His church in thanksgiving for what we    have received, seeking His continual blessing in order that we might be an even greater blessing to Him. (Mt. 6:19; 23:23; Mal. 3:6-11; 2 Co. 9:6-11)
· As a body of believers we seek the highest level of commitment to Christ and His church in our lives.  Half-hearted commitment is  offensive to God and never the pattern taught, or exemplified by Jesus. (Rev. 3:15-16; Rom. 12:9-13; Col. 1:28-29)
