What We Believe

Our Statement of Faith

We believe that the Great Commission of Jesus Christ should be the main focus of our church.

This commission is built on three basic steps: Go make disciples, baptize, and teach. Our church has a deep desire to reach lost souls and make a positive impact in our community by showing our love for those around us. Below are some basic beliefs of what our church stands for. This is not a comprehensive list just a general idea for those that may be searching for a church to attend. More information on these beliefs can be found by visiting our Church and speaking with our pastoral staff.

Love

We believe that love for one another as Jesus loves every believer shows our true love for God and symbolizes our authority as a New Testament Church. Love is therefore the greatest commandment of the Lord Jesus Christ upon which all others are dependent. Matt. 22:35-40; John 13:34,35; John 15:12; I John 5:13

Scripture

We believe scripture is fully accurate and without any errors and that the Bible is the all-sufficient rule of faith and practice in our everyday lives. (Ps. 119:160; II Timothy 3:16-17).

Satan

We believe that Satan is a fallen angel, the archenemy of God and man, the unholy god of this world, and that his destiny is the eternal lake of fire. His job is to deceive those that have not accepted Jesus as savior and try to keep them from true salvation. (Isa. 14:12-15; Ezek. 28:11-19; Matt. 25:41; II Cor. 4:4; Eph. 6:10-17; Rev. 20:10).

Jesus

We believe in the virgin birth and sinless life of Jesus Christ. These two facts are what separates Jesus as the only one sufficient to redeem mankind. (Matt. 1:18-20; II Cor. 5:21; I Peter 2:22).

Man

We believe that man was created in the image of God and lived in innocence until he fell by voluntary transgression from his sinless state. This means that all mankind are sinners and in need of personal salvation only found in Jesus Christ. (Gen. 1:26; Gen. 3:6-24; Rom. 5:12-19).

Grace through Faith

We believe that the only way to obtain personal salvation is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. The requirements for this are repentance toward God for our sin and putting our genuine faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. (Luke 13:3-5; John 3:16-18; Acts 20:21; Rom. 6:23; Eph. 2:8-9)

Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit convicts sinners, regenerates, seals, secures, and indwells every believer to aid us in sanctified living. (John 3:6; John 16:8-9; Rom. 8:9-11; I Cor. 6:19-20; Eph. 4:30; Titus 3:5).

Eternal Security

We believe that all who trust Jesus Christ for salvation are eternally secure in Him and shall not perish. Each believer will possess a genuine desire to serve Jesus Christ and produce spiritual fruit that shows forth this new life in Christ.  (John 3:36; John 5:24; John 10:27-30; Rom. 8:35-39; Heb. 10:39; I Peter 1:5).

Lordship of Christ

We believe in the Lordship of Jesus Christ, this means that God deals with all believers as His own children. God works in the hearts of those living in disobedience to come to repentance and He rewards the ones being obedient to His word. (Matt. 16:27; Matt. 25:14-23; John 1:12; Heb. 12:5-11; II John 8; Rev. 22:12)

Ordinances

We believe that there are two ordinances to obey: Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Scriptural baptism is the act of putting born again believers fully under water as an outward showing of the inward change being done in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The Lord’s Supper is a memorial ordinance remembering what Christ accomplished on Calvary. (Matt. 28:19, 20; Acts 8:12, 38; Rom. 6:4; 1 Cor. 5:11-13; 1 Cor. 11:1, 2, 17-20, 26).

Resurrection

We believe in the bodily resurrection and ascension of Christ and the future bodily resurrection of His saints. This means that one glorious day all those that receive Jesus as their personal savior will be caught up in the clouds and shall forever be with The Lord. (Matt. 28:1-7; Acts 1:9-11; I Cor. 15:42-58; I Thess. 4:13-18).
