There is one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
The Bible is the completely inspired Word of God, without error in its original manuscripts. The Bible is our supreme and final authority in faith and life.
Man was created without sin in the image of God, but he chose a sinful path and thereby incurred both physical death and spiritual death, which is separation from God. All human beings since have been born with a sinful nature, expressed through thought, word and deed.
Despite our sinful nature, God loves us and has offered us grace – a path to return to Him and enjoy everlasting life. God’s grace has been delivered to us through His son, Jesus.
Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and is fully God and fully man.
Through His life on earth, Jesus provided an example of how we should live.
Through His death on the cross, Jesus gave himself as a sacrifice for all of our sins, substituting his death for our permanent physical death.
Through His resurrection and return to Heaven, Jesus offers us the promise of victory over death and eternal life.
It is up to each individual to accept the offer of salvation. We believe this is a conscious decision to be made upon reaching an age of accountability – when one is old enough to express faith in Jesus Christ and make choices for their own life. This decision is a spiritual re-birth and therefore is referred to as being “born again.”
Baptism is an ordinance of the church, an important symbol and a public acknowledgement of the decision that’s been made. We practice baptism by full immersion in water.
Communion is another ordinance of the church, also an important remembrance of Christ’s sacrifice and a bonding of believers in His spirit. We practice open communion, and invite all those who have accepted Christ to join us.
Jesus will return to earth. Those who are saved will have everlasting joy and those who are not will have everlasting punishment.
The Holy Spirit dwells in those who have been saved, guiding their lives and providing each person with talents and gifts that are meant to be used to build the church and help spread the Word.
