What We Believe

We believe in one who exists in three Divine persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (I John 5:7-8). The Trinity, as God is called, though largely incomprehensible to the human mind, is a Biblical fact that must be accepted by faith. God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, has lived from eternity past and is eternal in nature. We believe in one Lord, one faith and one baptism. (Ephesians 4:5).

We believe that all humans are sinners and need to be saved (Romans 3:10-12, Romans 3:23). The enemy of God and adversary of all Christians is the Devil or Satan (I Peter 5:8). All who reject Jesus will be judged by God for their sins and condemned to eternal damnation.

We believe that the church is to be regenerated membership (John 3:3, Acts 2:41-44) and that it has the responsibility of spreading the Gospel to the world (Matthew 28:19-20, Acts 1:8).

We believe that Jesus Christ, the Son of God and Himself deity, became flesh (John 1:14). He was conceived and born of a virgin upon whom the Holy Ghost had come (Matthew 1:18-22). His purpose for becoming a man was to die for the sins of mankind. Man was alienated from God through sin and reconciliation was necessary. The form of that reconciliation was ordained that the Son of God be crucified on a cross (Matthew 16:21, Mark 8:31). On the third day after his crucifixion, Jesus was raised from the dead (I Corinthians 15:3-4). We believe that Christ is the founder of the church and its only head (Matthew 16:18, Colossians 1:18).

We believe in and support the rights of the individual. Everyone must seek God for himself or herself (Acts 17:26-27). Everyone must repent for himself (Acts 17:30). Everyone must confess for himself (Romans 10:9-10). Everyone must give an account for himself (Romans 14:11-12).

We believe in the democracy of the church and that every member is equal.
