Lives being transformed through the Love of Jesus Christ

Our Mission

 

We are learning to love God and love our neighbors as ourselves.

Our Beliefs

We believe that it is God's desire for all people to be in relationship with Him. However, because of the sin that exists in our lives, we are separated from Him. This separation, left reconciled, will ultimately lead to an eternal separation in Hell. But God, out of His immense grace and unconditional love, has provided a means of reconciliation to us through the death of His Son, Jesus Christ. To those who will acknowledge their own sinfulness, and accept the sacrifice of Christ made on their behalf, God promises the gift of eternal life. 

 

The Bible

We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, fully inspired and without error in the original manuscripts; that it was written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit; and that it has supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.  2 Timothy 3:16-17
 
The Trinity
 
We believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons; that these are equal in every divine perfection; and that they execute distinct but harmonious offices in the work of creation, providence and redemption.  Matthew 28:19, 2 Corinthians 13:14
 
God, The Father
 
We believe in God, the Father, an infinite, personal spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power, and love.  We believe that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men, that He hears and answers prayer, and that he saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.  Acts 17:24-28
 
God, The Son
 
We believe in Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God the Father, conceived by the Holy Spirit.  We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles and teachings.  We believe in His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into Heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, and personal, visible return to earth.  John 1:1-3, Philippians 2:5-8, 1 Timothy 3:16
 
God, The Holy Spirit
 
    We believe in the Holy Spirit who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righeousness and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify and empower all who believe in Jesus Christ.  We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Christ and that He is an abiding helper, teacher and guide.  John 16:5-15
 
Regeneration
 
We believe that all men are sinners by nature and by choice and are, therefore, under condemnation.  We believe that those who repent of their sins and trust in Jesus Christ as Savior are regenerated by the Holy Spirit.  Ephesians 2:1-10
 
The Church
 
We believe in the universal Church, a living, spiritual body of which Christ is the head, and all regenerated persons are members.  We believe in the local church, consisting of a company of believers in Jesus Christ, baptized on a credible profession of faith, and associated for worship, work and fellowship.  We believe that God has laid upon the members of the local church the primary task of giving the Gospel of Jesus Christ to a lost world.  1 Corinthians 12:12-27
 
Christian Conduct
 
We believe that a Christian should live for the glory of God and the well-being of his fellow men; that his conduct should be blameless before the world; that he should be a faithful steward of his possessions; and that he should seek to realize for himself and others the full stature of maturity in Christ.  Romans 12:1-2,James 1:19-27
 
The Ordinances
 
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ has committed two ordinances to the local church:  baptism and the Lord's supper.  We believe that Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water into the name of the triune God.  We believe that the Lord's Supper was instituted by Christ for commemoration of His death.  We believe that these two ordinances should be observed and administered until the return of the Lord Jesus Christ.  Matthew 28:19, Acts 8:35-38, Romans 6:3-7, 1 Corinthians 11:23-26
 
Religious Liberty
 
We believe that every human being has direct relations with God and is responsible to God alone in all matters of faith; that each church is independent and must be free from interference by any ecclesiastical or political authority; and that therefore Church and State must be kept separate as having different functions, each fulfilling its duties free from dictation or patronage of the other.  Ephesians 2:13-18
 
Church Cooperation
 
We believe that local churches can best promote the cause of Jesus Christ by cooperating with each other in denominational organizations.  Such an organization, whether a regional or district conference is voluntary and may be terminated at any time.  Churches may likewise cooperate with interdenominational fellowships on a voluntary, independent basis.  Romans 15:26-27
 
The Last Things
 
We believe in the personal and visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ to earth and establishment of His Kingdom.  We believe in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment, the eternal felicity of the righteous, and the endless suffering of the wicked.  Matthew 24:29-31, 1 Corinthians 15:20-28, Mark 9:43-48
