What We Believe About...
Both Old and New Testaments, are the inspired Word of God, without error in the original writings, the complete revelation of His will for salvation of men, and the Divine and final authority for all Christian faith and life.
Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ is true God and true man, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He died on the cross a sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. Further, he arose bodily from the dead, ascended into Heaven, where, at the right hand of the majesty on High, He now is our High Priest and Advocate.
The Holy Spirit
The ministry of the Holy Spirit continues on in this present day. His mission is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, to convict men of sin, regenerate the believing sinner, indwell and fill, guide, instruct and empower for godly living and service. As He did at Pentecost, so He does today empowering the believer to do the work of the ministry, releasing His gifts to the Church, and filling the believer with power from on high.
Mankind was created in the image of God but fell into sin and is therefore eternally lost. Only through confession of sin, acceptance of the free gift of righteousness and the regeneration of the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained.
That the shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe, and only such as receive Jesus Christ are born of the Holy Spirit, and thus become children of God.
Water baptism and the Lord's Supper are ordinances to be observed by the Church during this present age. They are, however, not to be regarded as means of salvation.
On the first Sunday of every month, we observe communion as a collective church body. It may look a little different than you might be used to. We take communion in smaller family or home group units. You could call this more of a "family style" approach. All are welcome to partake of communion whether you are a member or a first time visitor. Our only request is that you be a Christian. Communion is available all other Sundays to the left of our stage during praise and worship. It is open to you as you feel led as an expression of worship.
The true Church is composed of all such persons who, through saving faith in Jesus Christ, have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the body of Christ of which He is the Head. Only those who are thus members of the true Church shall be eligible for membership in the local church. Every local church has the right under Christ, to decide and govern its own affairs.
We believe in the personal and imminent coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and that this "Blessed Hope" has a vital bearing on the personal life and service of the believer.
Resurrection From The Dead
At the end of time, Jesus Christ will resurrect the believer to everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord, and the unbeliever to judgment and everlasting conscious punishment.
