What We Believe

We are a non-denominational New Testament Church. What roots we have would be from the “Restoration Movement” in the 1800’s. No book but the Bible, not the only Christians, but Christians only. We believe that the changing culture does not effect what the Scriptures say about moral issues.

The Trinity
We believe in God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit and that they are distinct personalities with distinct roles, but one God; and that One God is the creator of the universe.

Christ
We believe Jesus Christ is the Messiah, the Savior, the son of God who was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on a cross, and was raised bodily from the grave. He will return as our victorious Lord.

Salvation
We believe our salvation comes only through grace through faith in Jesus Christ and is not based on our goodness. It is a free gift of God. Our good works and sacrifice are in response to His love and sacrifice (death) on the cross. Salvation is provided when one trusts in Christ’s death as the payment for one’s sin and through faith in Christ alone, we can receive eternal life in Jesus Christ for now and eternity.

Repentance
We believe faith in Jesus Christ requires repentance, confession of that faith before witnesses, and obedience to His Word. Baptism by immersion demonstrates our faith and obedience while it depicts our union with Christ in His death and Resurrection.

Holy Spirit
We believe everyone who accepts Christ has the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit who acts as a Comforter, Guide, Helper, and Advocate.

The Bible
We believe that the Bible is our guide to faith and practice. It is inspired by God, authoritative, without error, complete and it is sufficient to meet our deepest needs. It is the final and absolute truth for all that God desires for the world and His people.

The Church
We believe the church, as the Body of Christ, is the extension of Jesus Christ’s character, attitude, behavior, and mission in our world today.

Spiritual Gifts
We believe God gives Spiritual Gifts to both men and women through the Holy Spirit for the benefit of the Church’s ministry and her common good.

Prayer
We believe that humility in prayer is the foundation for all we do and that celebrating communion together weekly is beneficial for all Christians.
