About Us

Statement of Faith

Scripture

We believe the Bible is God's Word written by men that were inspired by the Holy Spirit. The Bible is without error and the supreme and final authority on all matters upon which it teaches.

God

We believe that there is only one God, creator of all things, who exists eternally as three distinct persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (the Trinity).

Mankind

We believe that all people were created in the image of God to have a loving relationship with Him. However, through disobedience to God, we became alienated from Him and are incapable of restoring a relationship with Him through our own effort.

Jesus

We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, fully God and fully man, born of a virgin, sinless and perfect. We believe that He was crucified, died, and rose again. Through His sacrificial death, He atoned for the sins of all mankind. He now sits at the Right Hand of God the Father as the one and only Savior, Advocate, and Mediator between God and man.

Salvation

We believe that salvation (eternal life with God) is a free gift from God that cannot be earned through personal goodness or human effort. We believe that the only way to receive salvation is by repenting of your sins, placing your faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ as the sufficient payment for those sins, and accepting Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior.

The Church

We believe that the church is the living body of Jesus Christ. It is composed of people who have come to know Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior. The purpose of the Church is to glorify God by knowing Him in an intimate way, obeying all that He commanded, and making Him known to a lost world.

The Holy Spirit

We believe the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity. He dwells in the hearts of all who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. The Holy Spirit convicts the world of sin and guides, enlightens, comforts, and empowers all who follow Jesus Christ in life and service.
