What We Believe
The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He is the creator and ruler of the universe. God is love and desires that all men be saved. God is also perfectly holy and cannot have fellowship with sin (Genesis 1:1, 1 Timothy 2:4, Habakkuk 1:13).
The Son of God. Through the miracle of the incarnation God sent his son into this world. He lived a sinless life, died on the cross for our sins, and was raised from the dead. (John 1:1, 1:14, 3:16, 14:6). He is the head of the church, which is His body (Ephesians 1:22-23, Colossians 1:18).
We believe the Bible is the word of God, and that it is how God speaks to us today. The Bible has all authority tto direct us in every area of our lives, especially guiding us in our relationship with God and in matters related to the church. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
The Greatest Commandments
Jesus said the greatest command is " 'You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. And the second is like it: 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' (Matthew 22:37-39).
Immersion in water. The Bible commands baptism along with belief and repentance as conditions of salvation. Our obedience shows our faith in God. (Mark 16:16, Acts 2:38). For more on this see an article: What We Believe About Baptism.
The Lord's Supper
A simple memorial feast we observe each Sunday. This time is intended to remind us of how Jesus died on the cross for us and is an opportunity to reflect on the life we are living for Him. (Matthew 26:26-30, 1 Corinthians 11:23-29, Acts 20:7).
We are a simple, independent group of Christians. The Bible is our authority in all things. Elders oversee the work of the church, functioning as shepherds to the flock of God (the church) and are assisted by deacons. (1 Timothy 3:1-7, Acts 20:28-29).
