Our beliefs

Many handsBelow are a list of the key theological beliefs of our church. This will help you see clearly from the Bible what we believe. Check out the Bible verses for yourself on www.biblegateway.com.

  • The Bible is the inspired Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16).
  • God has revealed himself as existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit–separate in personality but still one.
  • The Lord Jesus Christ, the Savior of humanity, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, and was both totally God and totally human (Luke 1:26-35; John 1:18; Isaiah 7:14, 9:6).
  • Jesus died for our sins, was buried and rose again the third day, and personally appeared to his disciples (1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Romans 4:25, 14:9).
  • Jesus was raised to heaven, where he is now, and he will come a second time at the end of this age (John 14:2-3; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18).
  • The salvation of sinners is by grace, through repentance and faith in what Jesus did on the cross. It is by this alone that God removes the guilt and penalty of sin (Ephesians 2:8-9; Hebrews 9:12,22; Romans 5:11).
  • Water baptism is done by immersion in water as an act of obedience and public confession of the Lordship of Christ (Acts 2:34-38; 1 Peter 3:18-21).
  • The Holy Spirit evidences Himself in a believer through the gifts and fruit of the Spirit (Acts 2:4, 8:14-17; Galatians 5:22-23; 1 Corinthians 12:4-11).
  • The table of the Lord, also called Communion and the Lord’s Supper, is a practice exclusively for believers and is an important expression of our covenant with God and with each other (1 Corinthians 11:28-32).
  • Eternal life is for the believer and eternal death for the unbeliever (John 5:24, 3:16; 2 Thessalonians 1:9; Revelation 20:10-15).
  • The present-day operation of the ministries of apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor and teacher (Ephesians 4:11) is for the maturing of the Church as are the local governmental ministries of elders and deacons (1 Timothy 3; Titus 1; Acts 6).
