WHAT WE BELIEVE

We affirm the Holy Bible as the inspired and inerrant word of God and the basis for our belief.  This church subscribes to the doctrinal statement of The Baptist Faith and Message as adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention in 2000.  We voluntarily band ourselves together as a body of baptized believers in Jesus Christ personally committed to sharing the good news of salvation to lost mankind.  The ordinances of the church are the believer's baptism and the Lord's Supper.


We welcome all who desire to worship Christ with us! As we come together for worship, discipleship, and mission, here are a set of core beliefs that form the essence of our faith and practice.

 

We believe in one true God, eternally existent in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. 

Matthew 28:18-19, 2 Corinthians 13:14, Hebrews 1:1-4

We believe in the ministry of the Holy Spirit who indwells every Christian's life for the purpose of living a God-reflective life.

John 16:7-11, 1 Corinthians 12:13, Ephesians 4:30

We believe the human race is sinful and separated from God and therefore must experience the work of Christ by faith in order to have a relationship with God.

Romans 3:10-20, Ephesians 2:1-3, 1 Colossians 1:13-14

 

We believe in the full deity and full humanity of Christ.

Philippians 2:5-8, Luke 2:40, John 1:1-5, Hebrews 4:15

We believe in the substitutionary atonement of Christ.

Romans 5:6-9, Galatians 3:13-14, Philippians 3:8-11

We believe in the authority and holy inspiration of Scripture.

2 Timothy 3:16, Romans 15:4, 2 Peter 3:1-2

We believe that the church is the Body of Christ and is to be about His work of making disciples of Christ in the world.

Ephesians 1:15-23, Matthew 28:16-20, 1 Corinthians 12:12-31

 

We believe that believers baptism by immersion and the Lord's Supper are the two ordinances of the church.
