STATEMENT of faith

We believe Jesus Christ died on a cross, was buried, then rose from the grave. He lives today and stands ready to give abundant and eternal life to all those who repent of sin and place their faith in Him.


OUR beliefs

By Scripture Alone. The Bible is the only inspired and authoritative Word of God, is the only source for Christian doctrine, and is accessible to all — that is, it is clear and self-interpreting. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

By Grace Alone. Salvation comes by God's grace or "unmerited favor" only — not as something merited by the sinner. Salvation is a gift of God brought to man by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. This means that salvation is an unearned gift from God not based on human merit. (Romans 3:23-24)

By Faith Alone. Justification for the sinner is only by faith alone, which is a gift of God, not by works, so that no one can boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9)

By Christ Alone. Christ Jesus is the only mediator between God and man and salvation is by none other. (Acts 4:12)

Glory to God Alone. God is sovereign over all things, therefore, all glory is due to God alone, since salvation is accomplished solely through his will and action—not only the gift of the all-sufficient atonement of Jesus on the cross but also the gift of faith in that atonement, created in the heart of the believer by the Holy Spirit. (Romans 11:36)


Clearly Expressed

The Bible is the written word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit and without error in the original manuscripts. It is the revelation of God’s truth and is infallible and authoritative in all matters of faith and practice. There is one God, who exists eternally in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit referred to as the Holy Trinity.

All are sinners and totally unable to save themselves from God’s displeasure, except by His mercy. Salvation is by God alone and is based on His grace, not on any human individual merit, or foreseen faith.

Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, who through His perfect life and sacrificial death atoned for the sins of all who will trust in Him, alone, for salvation. The Holy Spirit indwells God’s people and gives them the strength and wisdom to trust Christ and follow Him.
