Our Beliefs


What We Believe


The Bible is God's inspired word to us. It's the final authority on doctrinal truths, infallible and inerrant.

II Timothy 3:15-17, I Peter 1:23-25, Hebrews 4:12


There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. These three are coequal and co-eternal.

Genesis 1:26, Matthew 28:19, I John 5:7, John 1


Man was created good and upright, for God said,”Let Us make man in Our image,after Our likeness.” But man, by his transgression, fell. His only hope of redemption in Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

Genesis 1:26-31, Genesis 3:1-17, Romans 5:12-21.


Our only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. On the cross, Jesus became sin and took on our disease providing both salvation and divine healing for all.

Psalm 103:3 Ephesians 2:8-9, Romans 10:8-10, Romans 3:24


Water baptism, being a type of burial with Christ, should be observed as commanded in the scriptures by all who have repented and in their hearts truly believe in Christ and have accepted Him as Savior and Lord.

Matthew 28:19, Acts 8:36-37, Romans 6:4


We believe that Communion is an ordinance of the church established by Jesus. It is a time of remembering Christ’s sacrifice for us.

1 Corinthians 11:23-31, Matthew 26:26-30

Baptism of the Holy Spirit

All believers are entitled to and should expect the baptism of the Holy Spirit. With it, come power for life and service and the ability to pray in other tongues.

Luke 24:49, Acts 1:4-8, 2:38, 10:44-46, 11:14-16, 19:1-6, 1Cor. 14:1-6


The Church is the Body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointments for fulfillment of the Great Commission. Each believer, born of the Spirit,is an integral part of the church.

Ephesians 1:22, Ephesians 2:19-22, Hebrews 12:23

Marriage & Sexuality

We Believe that God creates each person as male and female. These two distinct, complimentary genders together reflect the image and nature of God. We believe that the term “marriage” means the uniting of one man and one woman in the exclusive union.

Genesis 1:26-27

Blessed Hope

Jesus is coming again to gather His saints to Himself and together they will reign with Him in His everlasting Kingdom.

Dan 2:44, Dan 7:14, Rev 11:15, 1 Corinthians 15:51-52, 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, 2 Thessalonian 2:1, Titus 2:13


Hell is a place created by God for the devil and fallen angels. People choose Hell when they reject Jesus Christ as Lord. Separation from the love of God is the result of purposefully rejecting the finished work of Jesus Christ.

Matthew 25: 34-46, 2 Thessalonians 1:6-9
