Statement of Faith

God
We believe in one God, Creator and Sustainer of the universe, Who is eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
God's Word
We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament are verbally inspired of God. They are without error in the original writings, and they are the supreme and final authority for faith and life.
God's Creation
We believe in the Genesis account of the creation. God created everything in the span of five literal days and on the sixth day created man in His likeness, followed by resting on the seventh day.
Fall of Men
We believe that all men have sinned and therefore are guilty before God and are under His condemnation.
God's Son
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. We believe in His deity, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His death to pay the penalty for our sins, His bodily resurrection, His exaltation at God’s right hand, His personal imminent, and pre-millennial return.
Salvation
We believe that, through the death and resurrection of Jesus, man’s sins are covered by His blood. A person need only call on the name of the Lord and repent of sins to be saved. His free gift is available to all who have ever been and ever will be. He foreknew who would be saved but did not pre-select them at any time. Salvation is by God’s grace alone and cannot be earned by any amount of deeds.At no time can a man lose or give back this salvation. God holds them in His hand until His return.
The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is divine and equal with God the Father and Jesus Christ. He convicts the saved person of sin and bears witness to the Truth of the Gospel of Christ through preaching and teaching. Once a person is saved, they are filled with the Holy Spirit. The Spirit then points out the sins of a believer and shows them how to live, pray, and worship.
The Church

A church is a body of baptized “called-out” believers set apart for His purpose. Acts 2 teaches that the church’s main function is to first see people saved through evangelism. Its second function is to see those people baptized. The third function is to disciple those saved and baptized to live for Christ and ultimately see others saved. The churches head is Jesus Christ. God appointed two offices. The Pastor to under-shepherd His flock and the deacons to serve and assist the Pastor.

God has given the Church two ordinances as well, Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Baptism is what a person does after being saved in order to identify with Christ. This submersion in water does not wash away sins or complete salvation.

The Lord’s Supper is to be done in remembrance of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The juice represents the shed blood of Christ while the unleavened bread signifies the broken body of Christ. The Lord’s supper is to be observed by saved and
baptized members of the local church after close examination of ones self.
