          Our Beliefs

          GOD is the embodiment of three separate and distinct persons; The Father, The Son, & Holy Spirit; Omnipotent, Omniscient, & Omnipresent; Perfectly Holy & Unified, Sovereign Creator & Sustainer of all things.  (Matthew  3:16, 17; 28:18, 19; 2 Corinthians 13:14; John 1:1,2; 14:26;  15:26; 17:11; Luke 3:22; Philippians 2:6; 1 Tim. 2:5; Hebrews 9:14)

          JESUS is God, the Son, the second person in the Godhead, the Word made flesh, who became God in man, for the purpose of standing in mankind's place as the sacrifice to cover our sin.  He is the only way to being in right standing with God, through faith in His death and resurrection alone.  (John 1:1,14, John 14:10 Romans 10:9, Ephesians 2:8, Philippians 2:6

          The Holy Bible is the Inspired Word of God, inerrant and eternal, containing the Complete revelation of His will for Salvation and instructions for living.  (2 Timothy 3:16)

          Man is Created by God, in His Image, & for His Pleasure, the apex of His creation. Because of sin man is born into a fallen state & hopelessly separated from God, powerless on his own to be saved from that condition.  (Genesis 1:26, Romans 3:23, Revelation 4:11)

          Sin is the state into which all people are born, since Adam and Eve and their original sin. (Romans 3:23)  Simply stated it is that which does not align with truth according to God and His Word, manifesting in both the things we do, and the things we do not do.  Jesus provides the remedy for sin through His death, burial, and resurrection, and is appropriated by a person through faith in Jesus and His finished work.

          Salvation is from God, through Jesus His Only Begotten Son, there is no other way to be saved and restored to right relationship with God. It is By Faith Alone, Through Grace Alone, Not Through Anything a Person can do, but Through the Work that Jesus has Done, It Is A Gift From God.

          Water Baptism In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Matt. 28:19) is an Ordinance of Christ, Symbolizing a Christian's faith in, and identification with, Christ's Death, Burial, & Resurrection by immersion in water.

          Communion also an Ordinance of Christ and a memorial to His Death & Resurrection, that is limited to those who Have Come to Salvation Through Christ.  (1 Corinthians 11:24-25)

          Sanctification is a progressive work of Grace, by the Holy Spirit in the life of a Believer. The process by which we are becoming Holy, as God is Holy.  (1 Peter 1:2, 2 Corinthians 3:18)

          Holy Spirit Baptism is the Promise of the Father, available to all who are saved  through Faith in Jesus Christ. It is Not required for Salvation, but rather for power, to follow and obey Christ.  (Matthew 3:11, Acts 1:8,; 2:39-39, Acts 10:44-46)

          The Church, whose Foundation is Christ, is the Body of Christ, Comprised of all people Who Are Saved Through Faith in Christ. Jesus' Will is That His Church Body be Unified, not denominated.  (Psalm 133, 1 Corinthian 12:27) 

          The Rapture is when, as Promised, Jesus will Return and "Catch Away" His Bride, the Church, and We Will Forever Be With Him.  (Matthew 4:32-44, 1 Thessalonians 4:17)

          Heaven is a Real Place, Reserved for Those Who Have Trusted In Jesus for Salvation. It is the Place From Which God Sovereignly Rules & Where Jesus Sits At His Right Hand ever interceding for us.  (Matthew 6:19-21, John 14:2, Revelation 22:1-5, Hebrews 11:16)

          Hell too is a Real Place, Reserved for Satan & His Cohort, and All People who die having rejected Holy Spirit's Drawing to Faith in Christ for Salvation.  (Matthew 5:22, Matthew 10:28, Revelation 21:8)

          Marriage, as ordained by God, is between one man, and one woman for life, and is a reflection of His image. (Genesis 1:26-28, 2:18-25, Malachi 2:16)

          Gender is not a fluid concept but a reality, determined in the womb according to God's design. Confusion is not the work of God, but of our adversary, Satan. (Genesis 1:27; 5:22, 1 Corinthians 14:33)
