Statement of Faith

The Scriptures

We believe the Bible is the inspired, inerrant Word of God. We believe and accept the scriptures as our authority. (2 Timothy 3:16)

The Trinity

We believe in one God eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit; three in-one, co-equal, which is the Trinity. (1 John 5:7)

Jesus Christ

We believe Jesus Christ was the only begotten Son of God, conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. (John 3:16, Matthew 1:18, Matthew 1:22,23)

The Last Things

We believe in the bodily resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 15:3-4), His ascension into heaven (Acts 1:9) and His present life there as our High Priest and Advocate. (Hebrews 7:24-26, 1 John 2:1,2) We believe the Lord Jesus Christ will come in the clouds to catch up His saints (1 Thessalonians 4:15-17, 1 Corinthians 15:51-55) and will return to rule and reign for 1000 years. (Revelation 19:11-16)

The Holy Spirit

We believe the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Trinity, convicts the world of sin. He indwells the believer and empowers the preaching and teaching of the Word. (John 16:8, 1 Corinthians 6:19, Acts 1:8)

The Ordinances

We observe the two ordinances given by the Lord Jesus Christ: Baptism and Communion. Baptism is by full immersion to commemorate the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. (Matthew 28:19, Romans 6:3-4) Communion is a memorial of the New Testament, which commemorates the substitutionary death of the Lord Jesus Christ on the cross. The bread signifies His broken body and the fruit of the vine represents His shed blood. (Corinthians 11:23-26)

Salvation

We believe the death of the Lord Jesus Christ was according to scripture (Isaiah 53:10) and was a substitutionary sacrifice for the sins of all mankind (Romans 5:6-10) so that all who call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved (Romans 10:13) and be justified by His shed blood. We believe man was created directly by God in His own image. (Genesis 1:27) We believe man is a sinner, fallen from original righteousness; and, apart from God's redeeming grace, is hopelessly lost. (Romans 5:12, Ephesians 2:1-3) We believe man is justified solely by faith in the atoning blood of Jesus Christ; resulting in forgiveness of sin and his being born into the family of God by the regenerating power of the Holy Spirit. (Romans 5:1, Galatians 2:16, Hebrews 9:12, Ephesians 2:1)

Church Staff

Our Church staff plays a vital role in overseeing and supporting the operations of the Church and its Ministries. They work diligently to ensure the smooth functioning of our community, from organizing events to handling administrative tasks. Beyond their administrative duties, they also provide essential support and foster a sense of belonging among our members, making them an integral part of our Church’s mission and success.
