What We Believe. . .
-We believe the Bible - both the Old and New Testaments - are the inspired, inerrant Word of God. This provides the only true principles on which to build a solid foundation for daily living.
-We believe in a Triune God -- the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
-Jesus Christ took on human form to be crucified for our sins, to rise from the grave and return to the Father so that all who believe could have eternal life (Isaiah 53:1-6, John 3:16).
-We believe in salvation through grace and repentance (1 John 1:9, Acts 2:38).
-We believe the Holy Spirit indwells every person who confesses with their mouth and believes in their heart that Jesus is Lord (Romans 10:9-13).
-Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. There is no other path to the One True God except through Him (John 14:6).
-Our mission is to glorify God and proclaim His Word in order to bring others to faith in Christ (Matthew 28:19-20).
-The church observes two ordinances which originated with our Lord: Baptism and the Lord's Supper (Communion).
What is "Worship"?
Our full "worship" to the Lord means praising Him through not only music or our time on Sunday morning, but in every opportunity we have to serve Christ through prayer, Bible study, helping others, having fellowship together, and building godly families and individuals within and outside church walls.
