The Holy Scriptures
We believe that every word in the original manuscripts of the Holy Bible was inspired by God and is entirely without error or contradiction in all matters of which it speaks; therefore the Bible is our supreme and final authority for faith and practice. We use a literal approach to interpreting Scripture, which takes into account history, grammar and internal harmony.
Psalm 12:6-7; Isaiah 40:8; John 17:17; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; Hebrews 4:12; 2 Peter 1:21; Revelation 22:18-19
We believe in One Triune God, eternally existing in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God Holy Spirit.
Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ was born of the virgin Mary by the Holy Spirit and is fully God and fully Man, virgin born and lived a sinless and perfect life.
Isaiah 7:14; John 1:1; John 1:14; Philippines 2:5-8
We further believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died on Calvary’s cross, was buried and rose again on the third day. He later ascended into heaven, and is now seated at the right hand of God the Father; and He ever lives to make intercession for all that come to God by Him.
Acts 1:9-11; Romans 3:24-25; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Ephesians 1:7; Hebrews 7:25; 1 Peter 1:3-5; 1 Peter 2:24
We believe in the Deity of the Holy Spirit, that He is a person and not a force, that He regenerates, baptizes, seals, indwells, fills, teaches, guides, convicts, comforts, intercedes and sanctifies the believer.
John 4:24; John 14:16-17; John 14:26; John 16:8; 1 Corinthians 12:13; Ephesians 1:13; Ephesians 4:30; Ephesians 5:18; Titus 3:5
We believe that God created the heavens and the earth in six literal, 24 hour days, and that man was created on the sixth day.
Genesis 1:1; Genesis 1:24-31; Genesis 2:2; Exodus 20:11; Exodus 31:17
We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but in Adam all mankind fell into sin with the result that all men are sinners, hopelessly sinful in themselves, apart from the grace of God, and unable to save themselves.
Genesis 1:27; Genesis 3:1-14; Romans 3:23; Romans 5:12; Ephesians 2:8-9
We believe that salvation is by the grace of God, through faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross. Who, in taking the punishment of our sins upon Himself and in His bodily resurrection, provided complete redemption. We therefore believe that a person is declared righteous, by God, as he or she, by faith, apart from works, believes in Jesus Christ.
Romans 3:23; Romans 6:23; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4; Ephesians 2:8-9; 1 John 5:13
We believe in the eternal security of the believer. Simply stated that once you are truly saved, you can never lose your salvation.
John 10:28; Romans 8:1; Romans 8:38-39; 1 John 5:13
We believe that angels are spirit beings created sinless by God, but now existing in fallen and unfallen states. Psalm 34:7; Psalm 91:11; Psalm 148:2; Matthew 18:10; Hebrews 1:14; 2 Peter 2:4
We believe that Satan is a person, the author of the fall, and that he has been defeated on the cross, and shall be eternally punished in the lake of fire.
Genesis 3:1-6; Job 1:6-2:7; Hebrews 2:14; Revelation 20:10
The Christian Life
We believe that life is sacred and that it begins at conception.
Psalm 139:13-16; Jeremiah 1:5
We believe that God commands us to be holy, therefore the Christian is to live a life separated from the world unto God. We must therefore be daily in God's Word.
Psalm 1:1-6; 1 Peter 1:16; James 4:4; 1 John 2:15-17
We believe that marriage is a covenant that is ordained by God and is intended to be a model of Christ’s relationship to the Church. We believe marriage is to be between a man and a woman.
Genesis 2:24; Mark 10:6-12; Romans 7:2; 1 Corinthians 7:2-4; 1 Corinthians 7:10-11; Ephesians 5:28-31; 1 Peter 3:1-7
We believe that the Church is the Body of Christ which began at Pentecost and is made up of all true believers. Acts 2; 1 Corinthians 6:19-20; 1 Corinthians 12:12-18
We believe that the ordinances of Baptism by immersion and the Lord’s Supper are for all true believers and are to be practiced and performed by the local church. We also believe that the great commission is for the Church.
Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 8:35-38; 1 Corinthians 11:23-29
We believe that the music of this church should be Christ honoring.
1 Corinthians 10:31
We believe in the imminent return of the Lord Jesus Christ for His Church.

We believe in a pre-tribulational rapture of the church and the pre-millennial return of Christ in glory.
