What We Believe
With the Bible as our supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct, we believe:
…in one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
…that all persons are sinners, and are therefore under condemnation, but that those who repent and trust in Jesus Christ as their Savior become children of God by the Holy Spirit.
…in the universal Church, a spiritual body of which Christ is head and all regenerated persons are members.
…that the local church is to be a company of believers in Christ, baptized by immersion on a credible profession of faith, and associated in worship, fellowship, discipleship, and evangelism.
…in a God-honoring lifestyle, religious liberty, voluntary cooperation in the cause of Christ, the personal and visible return of Jesus Christ, the resurrection of the body, and the final judgment of all persons.
