Our Beliefs:


1.       The Bible
The Bible is the inspired and only infallible Word of God
2.       The Godhead
We believe in one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit
3.       God the Father
We believe in the only one living and true God as the Holy, infinite, perfect Sovereign, and eternal Spirit, in whom all things have their source, being support, and end.  He is the Author of the plan of Salvation. He is the first Person of the Godhead, and the Father of all who choose to receive His Son Jesus Christ as personal Savior.
4.       Jesus
We believe Jesus is the eternal Son of God.  He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born Man of the virgin Mary and therefore, He was fully God and perfect man.  He was born into this world to fulfill the will of God to redeem us by making full atonement for our sins through His substitutionary suffering and death on the Cross.
 He took upon himself the likeness of sinful flesh but He was totally without sin. He was crucified, died as a penalty for our  sins, was buried and was raised bodily from the dead on the third day. Later, He ascended into Heaven and He will come again personally  and visibly to this earth.
5.       The Holy Spirit
We believe He is the Third Person of the Triune God. He convicts the world of sin and judgement, regenerates those who believe in Christ Jesus as Savior, indwells, baptizes, seals, empowers, guides, teaches, comforts , and sanctifies  all who become children of God through Christ.  He gives spiritual discernment so believers can understand the Bible, He leads them to do God’s will, and He glorifies the Lord Jesus.
6.       Satan
We believe in the existence of Satan; who originally was created a holy and perfect being, but rebelled against God through pride and unlawful ambition the great adversary of God and His people, the deceiver and god of this present world: that his powers are supernaturally great but strictly limited by the permissive will of God who over rules all his wicked designs and devices for good that he was defeated and judged at the Cross, and therefore his final doom is certain; that believers are able to resist and overcome him only in the armor of God and by the Blood of the Lamb.
7.       Man
We believe that mankind was created by God in His own image and likeness, in spirit, soul, and body; but that in Adam’s sin mankind fell and died spiritually, inherited a sinful nature, is universally sinful in both nature and practice and is alienated from the life and family of God, is under the righteous judgment and wrath of God, and has within himself no possible means to recover his original position with God nor to gain his own salvation.
8.       Human Sexuality
 We believe that God commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between a man and a woman.  We believe that any form homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexuality, incest, fornication, adultery, and pornography are sinful perversions of God’s gift of sex.
We believe that the only legitimate marriage is the joining of one man and one woman.
9.       Salvation
We believe that all who receive Jesus Christ as personal Savior by faith, trusting on His substitutionary death, His burial, and His resurrection, are saved instantly from eternal damnation into everlasting life, that salvation is found nowhere except in Christ Jesus, that salvation is a gift from God, apart from any works, and that true believers will reveal their salvation by changed lives.
10.   The Church
We believe that the true Church is composed of all such persons who through saving faith in Jesus Christ have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the Body of Christ of which He is the Lord and Head, that only those who are thus members of the true church shall be eligible for membership in the local church, and that every local church has the right under Christ to decide and govern its own affairs.
We also believe the mission of this church is to present the Gospel, teach sound Bible Doctrine for the equipping of the saints for the work of the ministry, and to bring believers to spiritual maturity
11.   Ordinances
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ instituted the Ordinances of Baptism by immersion and the observance of the Lord's Supper until His imminent return.
Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit It is an act of obedience and public testimony which symbolizes the believer's faith in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, his death to sin, the burial of his old self, and his resurrection to walk in newness of life in Christ- It is a prerequisite to the privilege of membership in the local church.
The Lord's Supper is a symbolic act of obedience whereby believers, through partaking of the bread and the fruit of the vine, remember and celebrate the atoning death of the Savior and anticipate His second coming- All believers in Christ are welcome at His table, but they are to first examine themselves in the Spirit, and confess and repent of any sin before partaking of the Lord's Supper (l Corinthians 1 1:23-32)
Neither of these ordinances are to be regarded as means of Salvation.
12.   Believer’s Responsibility
We believe that all Christians are called to live a life of intentional discipleship and commitment to Jesus Christ in which they are to worship God and His Son Jesus; support the Lord's work via the ministries of the local Church with their prayers, service, and their offerings; study and apply the Word of God to their lives; witness the gospel of Jesus Christ to a lost world; minister the love of Christ; submit to the Christ's authority and emulate His life; and war against the Adversary Satan in the authority and power of Jesus' Name.
13.   The Last Things
We believe in that “Blessed Hope”: the personal, imminent, pre-tribulation and pre-millennial coming of the Lord Jesus Christ for His redeemed ones, who will be rewarded at the Judgment Seat of Christ, and His subsequent return to earth, with His saints to establish His Millennial Kingdom. We believe in the bodily resurrection of all men, the saved to eternal life, and the unsaved to judgment and everlasting punishment.
