What We Believe

We are a Christ-centered congregation grounded in the following traditional doctrines:

Inspired Scriptures
The Bible is the inspired Word of God, a revelation from God to man, the living, infallible and everlasting rule of faith and conduct, and is superior to conscience and reason. (2 Timothy 3:15-17; 1 Peter 23-25; Hebrews 4:12)

One, True Godhead
The triune Godhead is comprised of three separate and distinct personalities, The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit, who are eternally self-existent, self-revealed and function as one entity. Jesus Christ, who is God manifested in the flesh, is the second member of the Godhead, co-eternal with the Father and the Holy Spirit. (John 1:1-5; 10-14; Matthews 28:18-20)

Fall and Redemption
Man was created good and upright, for God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness”. But, man, by voluntary transgression, fell, and his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God. (Genesis 1:26-31, 3:1-7; Romans 5:12-21)

Salvation of Man
(a) Man’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ (Romans 3:24; John 3:3). On the cross Jesus Christ became sin and sickness providing both salvation and divine healing for all mankind (Psalm 103:3), being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. For by grace we are saved through faith (Ephesians 2:8). “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart; that is, the word of faith, which we are preaching, that if you confess with your mouth and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved; for with the heart man believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.” (Romans 10:8-10).
(b) The Evidences of Salvation. The inward evidence to the believer of his salvation is the direct witness of the Spirit. (Romans 8:16, 1 John 3:18-19, 24) The outward evidence to all men is a life of righteousness and true holiness. “You will know them by their fruits.” (Matthew 7:16-20)
