We Believe...

God is three persons in one: the Father, Who created and sustains the world; the Son, Who lived as a human being, died, and rose from the dead; and the Holy Spirit Who works God's will in the world.


The Bible is the infallible word of God, spoken through human writers. It is the sole authority, guide and standard for all that we do. Sin exists in every person. It is the cause of the bad things people do to each other. Everyone will have existence after death - either in heaven or hell - forever and without end.


God has a plan to end the world, when He will judge everyone - both the living and the dead. We believe in the sign of the cross; it as a symbol used by all Christians. The cross symbolizes the terrible death that Jesus suffered as punishment for our sins. The empty cross is a symbol of Jesus' victory over sin and death

We Believe in...

Grace alone - God loved the world, though we do not deserve His love. He sent His Son to love the unlovely and save the ungodly.


Faith alone - Jesus has provided for our forgiveness and life; those who hear this promise and believe it, have what it offers. People don't "get" faith; God gives it as He gives us His promises.


Scripture alone - The Bible is the only source that shows God's will and the only basis for faith.

We Believe That...

Baptism and Communion are a means by which God gives people His grace.


God is loving and that He offers forgiveness and eternal life as a free gift because of Jesus Christ.


Salvation Is a free gift - We believe that no matter how hard we try, we cannot earn God's forgiveness or a place in heaven. It is a free gift we receive only through faith in Jesus Christ.
