Statements of Faith: What We Believe
About the Scriptures
We believe that the Bible is the inerrant, infallible, life changing, time altering Word of the Living God.
We believe in the Triune nature of God. That God exists in three distinct persons (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit). We believe that Jesus Christ is the second part of the Trinity who became flesh to reveal God to man and to become Savior of the lost world.
We believe that man was created in the image of God to live with God, give to God and glorify God forever, but because of sin became alienated from relationship and cannot get back into right relationship on his own effort.
We believe that through the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross, man is provided opportunity through grace only to be saved from the penalty, presence and power of sin.
About the Christian Life
We believe that every Christian should live for Christ and not for himself. By obedience to the Word and daily yielding to the Holy Spirit, every believer should mature and become conformed to the image of Christ.
About the Church
We believe the church to be the body of Christ which Jesus Christ is the Head. The members are those who trust by faith the finished work of Christ. The purpose of the church is to glorify God through prayer, praise and preaching.
About the Pastor
We believe the Pastor is the direct representative for God in the local assembly. The Pastor is the angel of the church who gives instructions to the body for its effectual and effective building. The Pastor is a gift given directly to the church by God for the building of the body.
