Our Beliefs

We believe in the one true and living God who exists eternally in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Each person of the Trinity is fully and completely God, with distinct attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being.
We believe that mankind was created in the image of God to have a relationship with Him but became alienated in that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, man is incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through his own effort.
We believe that salvation is the greatest need of all people. Salvation is only possible through the shed blood of Jesus Christ that He willingly offered as the only perfect sacrifice and substitutionary atonement for sin. Salvation is freely offered to all but is only received when one surrenders their life to Christ through repentance and faith in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus as the only sufficient payment for sin.
We believe the church is the body of Christ, of which Jesus is the head. The members of the church are redeemed, baptized believers who have placed their faith and trust in the finished work of Christ. The purpose of the church is to bring glory to God through reaching people with the gospel, teaching people the Word of God, and ministering to people through the love of Christ.
We believe evangelism and missions are our ultimate priority in fulfilling our ultimate purpose of bringing glory to God. Jesus came to seek and save that which was lost and following His commission we are to go and make disciples. This is the privilege and responsibility of every believer locally, nationally, and internationally.
We believe that the family is ordained by God as the foundational institution of society and principle location of spiritual development. Marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in covenant with God for life. The husband and wife are of equal worth before God each fulfilling distinct roles according to His gifts and calling. Children, from the moment of conception, are a blessing and heritage from the Lord.
