We believe the Bible in its entirety to be the
inspired Word of God and the infallible truth of faith and conduct. The Bible is God’s Word to all people.
Human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit, wrote it.
Deuteronomy 4:1-2; Psalms 119:11, 89, 105; Isaiah
40:8; Matthew 22:29; John 5:39; 16:13-15; 17:17; Romans
15:4; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; Hebrews 1:1-2; 4:12; 1 Peter
1:25; 2 Peter
We believe in one God. He is the
creator and ruler of the universe. He eternally exists in three persons: the
Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah
61:1; Matthew 28:19; Mark 1:9-11; Luke 1:35; John 5:21-23; 14:10, 16; Romans 8:9-11; 1 Corinthians
8:6; 2 Corinthians
13:14; Hebrews 1:8-10; James 2:19
God is great:
He is all powerful, all knowing, ever present, unchanging, completely worthy of
our trust, and above all, Holy. It is in Him that we live, move and exist. God
is good. He is our Father. He is loving, compassionate, and faithful to His
people and His promises.
Exodus 3:14; Numbers 23:19; Leviticus 11:44-45; 19:2; Psalm 11:4-6; Malachi 3:6; John 3:16; 4:24; 5:26; 14:1; Acts 17:28; Romans 3:3-4
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the only
begotten Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary,
was crucified, died, was buried, was resurrected, ascended into heaven, and is
now seated at the right hand of God the Father.
7:14; 53; Matthew 1:18-23; 3:17; 8:29; 14:33; 16:16; 28:5-6; Luke 22:70; 24:46-47; John 1:1, 14; 10:30; 11:25-27; 17:1-5; Acts 1:9; 2:22-24; 7:55-56; Romans 1:3-4; 3:23-26; 8:1-3; 10:4; 1 Corinthians

Spirit is God and His presence, in our hearts, assures us of our relationship
with Christ. He guides believers into all truth and exalts Christ. He convicts
people of their sin, God’s righteousness, and the coming judgment. He comforts
us, gives us spiritual gifts, and makes us more like Christ.
Genesis 1:2; Psalm 51:11; 139:7 ff.; Isaiah 61:1-3; Joel 2:28-32; Mark 1:10; Luke 1:35; 4:1; 11:13; 12:12; John 15:26; 16:7-14; Acts 1:8; 2:1-4; 13:2; Romans 8:9-11, 14-16, 26-27; 1

created to exist forever. He will exist either eternally separated from God, in
Hell, by sin or in union with God, in Heaven, through forgiveness and
John 3:16, 36; Romans
6:23; 1 John
2:25; 5:11-13; Revelation 20:15
We believe in personal salvation of believers
through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. When
people place their faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ as
sufficient payment for their sin, and confess it with their mouth, they are saved.
Salvation is a gift from God, and it cannot be earned through our own efforts.
1:18; 53:5-6; 55:7; Matthew
1:21; 27:22-66, 28:1-6; Luke 1:68-69; 2:28-32; John 1:12; 3:16, 36; 5:24; Acts 2:21; 4:12; 16:30-31; Romans 1:16-18; 3:23-25; 5:8-10; 6; 1

We believe in water baptism as an outward expression of
an inward confession that you identify with the death, burial, and resurrection
of Jesus Christ! According to the Bible, three things happen to believers who
die with Christ to their old self; (2) They
rise with Christ to become and are a new creation; and (3) They
are part of the kingdom citizenship
28:19; Romans 6:10
The Church is a local community of believers unified through faith in Christ. It is committed to the
teachings of Christ, obeying all of His commands, and it seeks to bring the
Gospel to the world. The Church works together in love and unity, intent on the
ultimate purpose of glorifying Christ.
