What We Believe
We believe the Bible has been preserved throughout time by God and is divinely inspired of God, written down by men chosen of God. The Bible is the Final Authority over all matters of Christian faith and practice. We believe that God has preserved his word using the King James Bible. (2 Timothy 3:16)
We believe there is one and only one living and true God. God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Ephesians 4:4-6)
We believe that man is the special creation of God, made in His own image. He created them male and female as the crowning work of His creation. We believe that all have willfully sinned, and as a result, are lost with no hope apart from Jesus Christ. (Genesis 1:27, Romans 3:23)
We believe in salvation by grace, through faith. Salvation, which is the forgiveness of sin, is offered to all people who willingly choose to accept Jesus Chris as Lord and Savior. One must acknowledge one’s sinfulness and believe in Jesus Christ as God’s Son, that He died, was buried, and rose again to pay our price for sin. (Acts 4:12, Ephesians 2:8-9)
Baptism & The Lord's Supper
We believe the Lord left two ordinances that must be followed by His Church, those being Baptism and the Lord's Supper. We believe Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The Lord’s Supper is a symbolic act of obedience whereby believers in Jesus Christ, through the un-leavened bread and the grape juice, memorialize the death of our Redeemer. (Matthew 3:13-17, Matthew 26:26-30, Romans 6:3-5)
God's Simple Plan of Salvation
1) MAN'S NEED
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
2) SIN'S PENALTY
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
3) GOD'S PROVISION
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
4) MAN'S RESPONSE
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
5) GOD'S RESPONSE
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
6) GOD'S PROMISE
Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ
Your Goodness Is Not Enough
Jesus is The Way, The Truth, and The Life and no man commeth to the Father but by Him. Accepting Jesus does not give us a hall pass to sin, but rather, frees us from the bonds of sin and the penalty it requires, which is death, to all that believe on His Name!
Since Jesus paid our penalty and finished the work on the cross, by accepting Him as Lord and Savior is acknowledging that only His Righteousness will satisfy Gods judgement on your behalf.
