What We Believe
Together, we are his house, built on the foundation of the apostles and the prophets. And the cornerstone is Christ Jesus himself.
– Ephesians 2:20
We believe in one God…
Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe in God the Father Almighty,
Creator of all things visible and invisible.
We Believe in Jesus Christ…
…God’s one and only Son, my one and only Savior …
… Who was born Jesus of Nazareth, both fully human and fully divine, conceived of the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary.
… Who suffered and was crucified
We believe in the Holy Spirit…
… Who is an active and operative part of the triune God
… Who indwells every Christian
We believe in the Bible…
– God’s Holy Word, Scripture. We believe God inspired the autographs (original writings) of the Scripture and those autographs were consequently without error.
– We accept the Bible as the final authority for all matters of faith and practice.
We believe the Bible teaches that salvation – the forgiveness of sins – is only obtained by grace through the shed blood of Jesus Christ (Matthew 26:28; Romans 5:9; Ephesians 2:8-9; 1 Peter 1:18-1 9; 1 John 1:7)
We believe the Bible teaches that one receives God’s grace as a free gift (Ephesians 2:8-9) by putting faith in Christ (Mark 16:16; John 3:16; Romans 5:1-2), repenting of sin (Acts 2:38,3:19,17:30; 2 Peter 3:9), confessing Christ (Romans 10:9-10, Matthew 10:32-33), and being immersed into Christ (Acts 2:38, Matthew 3:15,1 Peter 3:21, Romans 6:1-7), but that none of these is sufficient in and of itself for the assurance of salvation.
