What We Believe


We believe in one God (one unified, divine nature; Deuteronomy 6:4; Galatians 3:20). This nature is shared by three distinct, separate, but equal personalities (Galatians 1:1-3; John 1:1-3, 14; Acts 5:3-4). They can and do assume individual roles in their work and sometimes that involves subordination (Mark 13:32; John 14:16-17; Matthew 12:32). The Scriptures identify these personalities as God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit (Matthew 3:16-17). They are eternal, almighty and supreme.  They are responsible for the creation of our universe and worthy of our praise (Genesis 1:26; Matthew 4:10).


We believe God sent the Son, Jesus, to this world to redeem man from sin (John 3:16; Luke 19:10). Jesus, the Son of God, was born of a virgin (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23) and lived a sinless life (1 Peter 2:21-22). In Jesus we have one who is fully divine and fully man (Colossians 2:9). Jesus was crucified, died and rose again on the third day to live eternally (Matthew 26-28; Mark 14-16; Luke 23-24; John 18-21). He ascended back up to heaven where He waits to come to this earth again for judgement (John 14:11-13; Acts 1:11; 2 Peter 3:10).


We believe the Holy Spirit dwells in Christians and they receive Him at baptism (Acts 2:38). We do not believe the Spirit allows us to perform miracles like those in the New Testament. We believe the Spirit used miraculous powers to prove the messenger was from God, but now that we have the Bible, we do not need things like prophecy, tongue speaking, ect. (Acts 2:22; 1 Corinthians 13:9-12). Today, the Spirit is a seal on us (Ephesians 1:13). He makes intercession in prayer for us (Romans 8:26), ect.


We believe the Holy Spirit inspired over forty different writers to write God's will for us in the sixty-six books of the Bible. We believe the Bible to be complete, inspired, without error and applicable to our lives in all generations. It is the authority for what we do and how we live. The Bible is how God communications with us today (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21).


We believe sin entered this world when Adam and Eve chose to reject God's word. Since that time, people have been choosing to sin, which separates them from God (Isaiah 59:1-2; James 1:14-15). There is absolutely nothing we can do, in and of ourselves, to remedy our sin problem, which will send us to hell if we die in it (Romans 6:23). This is why Jesus was crucified. Now, in Christ, all people can be saved from their sins.


We believe the Bible teaches us how to get in Christ. First, one should hear about Jesus and what He has done (Romans 10:17). Once an individual has heard the gospel (good news about Jesus), they need to decide if they believe what the Bible teaches (John 8:24). If they believe, they need to be willing to confess Jesus as Lord (Matthew 10:32-33) and repent of their sins (Luke 13:3, 5; Acts 17:30-31). Then one must be willing to be baptized for the forgiveness of their sins (Acts 2:38; 22:16). We believe the Bible teaches that baptism is a full immersion into water (Acts 8:38). After being baptized, the Bible calls us to be faithful to God (Revelation 2:10).


We believe the Bible teaches us to sing without the use of mechanical instruments. (Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16). We believe the Bible teaches us to pray (Colossians 4:2; Ephesians 6:18). We believe the Bible teaches us to give (1 Corinthians 16:1-2; 2 Corinthians 9:6-8). We believe the Bible teaches us to take the Lord's Supper every first day of the week (Matthew 26:26-29; 1 Corinthians 11:23-28; Acts 20:7). We believe the Bible teaches us to study the Bible (2 Timothy 4:1-2). See                             for more information.


We believe the Bible teaches that God created the first marriage int he garden of Eden between Adam and Eve (Genesis 2:24-25). Since God is the creator of marriage, He is the only now with the right to tell us what is right in marriage. We believe through His work, He teaches us marriage is between one man and one woman (Matthew 19:4-6). God's plan for marriage is until death separates those in the marriage (Romans 7:2-3). The Bible also teaches that the only acceptable reason to divorce and marry someone else is for adultery (Matthew 5:32; 19:9).


We believe the Bible teaches male leadership in worship (1 Timothy 2:11-14). It is not because women are any less valuable or because male or female salvation is different but in accordance with God's designed roles in worship for genders (Galatians 3:27-28).
