Our reason for being is to fulfill the Great Commission of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To do this, we teach His Word, reach out to the world with His Gospel and seek to advance His Kingdom.
✚ There is one God — the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit who exist in unity and as three distinct persons.
✚ Jesus Christ is God’s only Son, who was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died for the sins of mankind, was buried, rose again, ascended into Heaven and who will return to Earth one day.
✚ The Holy Spirit works to reveal Christ, to convict people of their sins and lead them to repentance, to give comfort and to guide believers.
✚ The Bible is God’s perfect Holy Word. It has no errors and is the authority for life.
✚ God made all people in His image. Because of Adam’s sin, all people are sinners and need salvation.
✚ Salvation is a gift from God through faith and cannot be earned. Everyone who accepts the gift will spend eternity in Heaven. Everyone who rejects it will spend eternity in Hell.
✚ Baptism by immersion after salvation is done in obedience to Jesus’ command.
✚ All believers have access to God through Jesus.
✚ The church is a local body of believers with Jesus as its head.
