Statement of Faith

The Bible is the divinely inspired and revealed Word of God. It is complete and without error.

God is the Holy Trinity: God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit. He is three in one.

Jesus is the Christ, the eternal Son of the Living God, the Savior of men, born of a virgin, equal with the Father in every divine perfection, and the Lord of every Christian. The Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross, was buried, rose again the third day, ascended to the right hand of God the Father, where he now sits in Glory as our Mediator. The return of the Lord Jesus Christ will be visible and personal. He has taught us to live in readiness to meet him.

The Holy Spirit is a person, equal with the Father and the Son in every divine perfection, who convicts of sin, regenerates, enlightens, endures for service, comforts and guides believers.

All have sinned and, therefore, are in need of salvation.

Salvation is by grace alone, is free to all who, through repentance and faith, surrender to the Lord Jesus Christ. All who have been born again are eternally secure and will persevere to the end.

Salvation precedes scriptural baptism and church membership. Christ personally instituted the church, which he commissioned to make disciples of all nations, to baptize believers, and to teach them to do all things that He had commanded. There are only two (2) scriptural ordinances: Believer's Baptism and the Lord's Supper.

There are only two (2) classes in God's sight: saved and lost. The saved shall live eternally in conscious blessedness in heaven; the unsaved in conscious punishment in hell forever.

We hold these distinctive Baptist principles: "the absolute Lordship of Christ:, the supreme authority " of the Holy Scriptures, the competency of the individual soul, the necessity of regeneration for church membership, the complete separation of church and state, and the autonomy of the local church". 

Statement on Marriage:

We believe that the term "marriage" has only one meaning and that is marriage sanctioned by God which joins one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture. We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to only occur between a man and a woman who are married to each other.

We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of marriage between a man and a woman.

We believe that any form of sexual immorality, such as adultery, fornication, homosexuality, bisexual conduct, bestiality, incest, pornography or any attempt to change one's sex, or disagreement with one's biological sex, is sinful and offensive to God.

We believe that in order to preserve the function and integrity of the church as the local Body of Christ, and to prove a biblical role model to the church members and the community, it is imperative that all persons employed by the church in any capacity, or who serve as volunteers, should abide by and agree to this Statement on Marriage and Sexuality and conduct themselves accordingly.

We believe that God offers redemption and restoration to all who confess and forsake their sin, seeking His mercy and forgiveness through Jesus Christ.

We believe that every person must be afforded compassion, love, kindness, respect and dignity. Hateful and harassing behavior or attitudes directed toward any individual are to be repudiated and are not in accord with scripture nor the doctrines of the church.
