Statement of Faith

The following section is the adopted Statement of Faith of this church, representing the core beliefs that will govern decision making. 

  • The Bible: The Bible is God’s Word to us. It was written by man under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the source of truth and the only perfect rule for faith, doctrine, and conduct.

  • God: God is the ruler of all. There is only one God, and He is eternally existent in three coequal persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. God is love, He is perfect, He has all power and knows all things.

  • God the Father: God the Father created all things in the way He saw fit. He created man in His own image with intrinsic dignity and worth. He is the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible.

  • God the Son: Jesus Christ is the Son of God and is coequal with the Father and the Holy Spirit. He is the Messiah as told in the Old Testament. Jesus lived a sinless life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven and will return again someday to reign as King.

  • God the Holy Spirit: The Holy Spirit is present in the world to make us aware of our need for Jesus Christ. He lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. Every believer has access to the Holy Spirit’s gifts when they are saved. As Christians, we seek to live under His guidance daily. 

  • Eternity: Eternal life is a unique gift from God through the resurrection of Jesus Christ whose death conquered sin. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life which begins here on earth and continues in Heaven. Heaven and hell are real places of eternal existence.

  • Sin: God created people in innocence. By willful disobedience people sinned and because of this, all people are sinners with an inherited sinful nature. Sin is not just wrong doing, but wrong being. Humanity is under just condemnation without defense or excuse. 

  • Salvation: Salvation is God’s gift to us. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. Everyone who turns from their self-ruled life and places their trust and faith in Jesus receives salvation. Anyone who is united with Christ gets a fresh start and is created new.

  • Church: All Christ followers should belong to His body, the Church. There is one true Church universal, comprised of all those who acknowledge Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. The Scripture commands Christ followers to gather together to devote themselves to worship, prayer, the teaching of the Word, the observance of Baptism and Communion, fellowship, service to the body, and mission to the world. Wherever God's people meet regularly in obedience to this command, there is the local expression of the church. Under the watchful care of pastors, elders, deacons, and other supportive leadership, its members are to work together in love and unity, intent on the one ultimate purpose of loving God and loving people.

  • Missions: God has given the Church a Great Commission to proclaim the Gospel to all nations so that there might be a great multitude from every nation, tribe, ethnicity and language group who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. All followers of Jesus have a role in mission locally, regionally, and also globally.

  • Sacraments: 

    1. Communion: Communion is a sacred time of fellowship with God and one-another where believers remember the sacrifice of Christ by partaking of bread and the fruit of the vine. Communion is open to anyone who is a follower of Jesus and who is living in obedience to God.

    2. Baptism: Anyone who repents of their sin and believes in Christ as their Savior is to be baptized in water. Baptism is an outward testimony of the inward change in a believer’s life. By doing this, they declare to the world that they have died with Christ and have also been raised to live a new life with Him. Any baptism conducted at a church of like faith is recognized as a legitimate baptism and a public milestone in a person’s walk with Christ.


The Statement of Faith does not exhaust the extent of our faith. The Bible itself is the sole and final source of all that we believe. We do believe, however, that the foregoing Statement of Faith accurately represents the teaching of the Bible, and therefore, is binding upon all members.
