What We Believe

We believe in one God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Matthew 5:16, 5:45, 6:1, 6:8-9; James 1:17; John 1:1, 4:24, 14:9, 14:16-20; Genesis 1:2; 2 Peter 1:21

We believe in God the Father Almighty, Creator of all things visible and invisible.

Genesis 1:1; Acts 17:24-28; Hebrews 11:3

We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s one and only Son, our one and only Savior,

John 1:14; 1 John 4:9; John 3:16; 2 Peter 3:18

who was born both fully human and fully divine, conceived of the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary, and who lived a sinless life

Matthew 21:11; John 1:14, 19:19; Romans 5:15-17; Colossians 2:9; 1 John 1:1; Matthew 1:18; Luke 1:26-38

who suffered and was crucified,

Luke 23:1-46

who died and was buried, and who rose again bodily from the dead on the third day,

Luke 23:44, 24:8; John 20:24-29; 1 Corinthians 15:3-8

who ascended into Heaven and now sits at the right had of the Father,

Luke 22:69; Acts 1:1-9; Colossians 3:1

and who will return to earth to judge both the living and the dead.

Matthew 24:36-42; John 14:1-3; Acts 1:10-11, 10:39-42; 1 Peter 4:5

We believe in the Holy Spirit, who is a personal and active part of the triune of God,

John 16:5-15; Acts 1:7-8; Romans 8:26-27

and who indwells every Christian,

1 Corinthians 3:16, 6:19; 2 Timothy 1:14

who indwells us in order to develop within us the fruit of the Spirit,

Galatians 5:16-26

and also to release through us the gifts of the Spirit.

Romans 12:3-8; 1 Corinthians 12

We believe in the Bible – God’s Holy Word as inspired Scripture.

Mark 12:36; John 14:26, 16:12-15; Acts 1:16; 1 Corinthians 2:12-13; 2 Timothy 3:14-16; 2 Peter 1:20-21

We accept the Bible as the final authority for all matters of faith and practice.

Isaiah 40:8; Matthew 5:18, 24:35; Romans 15:4; Hebrews 4:12

We believe that people created by God willfully sin against God and are consequently lost and without hope apart from Jesus Christ.

Acts 4:12; Romans 3:23

We believe that all humanity was marred through the sin of Adam, but that whatever was lost – with or without our consent – in Adam, we have no regained – with or without our consent – in Christ, and mankind is now able to respond in faith to the message of the Gospel.

Romans 5:12-17

We believe that salvation – the forgiveness of sins – cannot be earned, but is given to us only through the blood of Jesus Christ and by God’s grace.

Matthew 26:28; Romans 5:1-11, 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-10; Hebrews 10:19-22; 1 Peter 1:18-19; 1 John 1:7

We believe that we must respond to God by admitting our sin and our need for God’s grace,

Romans 3:23; Titus 3:3-7

believing and confessing the truth about Jesus,

Matthew 10:32; Romans 10:9-10

turning away from sin and idolatry,

repenting — Luke 24:45-47; Acts 3:19, 17:30

trusting Jesus as both Savior and Lord,

Romans 10:11-13; Philippians 2:11

and expressing our faith and allegiance by being baptized (immersed) into Christ.

Acts 2:38; Romans 6:1-4

We believe the church of Jesus Christ consists of all Christians everywhere who can truly call on the Lord.

Matthew 16:13-18; Acts 2:14-47

We affirm the early church’s practice of celebrating the Lord’s Supper weekly as a proclamation of the death, burial, resurrection, and continuing presence of Christ.

Acts 2:42, 20:7; 1 Corinthians 11:24-30

We affirm the principle of Christian stewardship and practice tithing as an essential habit of a fruitful life and ministry.

Leviticus 27:30; Malachi 3:8-10; Luke 6:38

We believe in the church’s mission; to glorify God by going out and making disciples of all people groups, immersing them into the reality of our Trinitarian God, and teaching them to obey all of Jesus’ commands.

Matthew 28:18-20
