Proclaim the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ (John 3:16)

Make disciples of Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:18-20)

Build up believers to grow in relationship with Jesus and each other (Ephesians 4:11-13)

Statement of Faith
and Practices

The Bible:
We believe the Bible in its original text is the divinely inspired, inerrant, and infallible Word of God. It is the supreme authority for faith and life: sufficient, true, relevant and useful in the world today and always. Scripture reveals the character and love of God to us, His will for our lives, and the path by which we can receive salvation. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Deuteronomy 4:2; Deuteronomy 10:17; John 3:16; Romans 12:2)

The Triune God:
We believe there is one true God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is the infinitely perfect Creator, Sustainer, and Ruler of all things. (Ephesians 4:4-6; Matthew 28:19; Revelation 1:8; Genesis 1:1; Hebrews 1:3; 1 Chronicles 29:11)

We believe Jesus is the Son of God who became human and dwelt among us. We believe in His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His atoning death on the cross, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father in heaven, and His physical and visible return to this earth in power and glory as Judge of the living and the dead. (John 1:14; Matthew 1:23; Hebrews 4:15; Acts 2:22-24; Romans 8:34; Acts 1:11; Philippians 2:5-11)

The Holy Spirit:
We believe at the moment of salvation the Holy Spirit dwells within each believer, making us a new creation, born again in the Spirit of Christ. The Holy Spirit enables us to understand spiritual truth, convicts us of our sins, guides us to live a godly life and seals us in Christ for the day of redemption. (2 Corinthians 5:17; John 3:5-8; 1 Corinthians 2:14; John 16:8; Galatians 5:22-23; Ephesians 1:13)

We believe Adam (the first man) and Eve (the first woman) rebelled against God’s perfect plan in the Garden of Eden. As a result, all people inherit a sinful nature which separates us from the Holy God. All fall short and are in desperate need of a Savior and forgiveness. (Genesis 2:7, 17, 21-22; Genesis 3:6-13; Romans 5:12; Romans 3:23-24)

We believe that all people will stand before the judgement seat of Christ. On our own, we would all be found guilty. Salvation cannot be earned by way of good works, but only through faith in Jesus. God graciously offers the gift of salvation and eternity with Him to all who believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who died on the cross and rose from the dead to pay the penalty for our sins. (2 Corinthians 5:10; Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 14:6; Acts 4:12; Titus 3:4-7)

The Church:
We believe Christ is the head of the Church which consists of all true believers, who through faith have received Christ as their Savior. As His Church, we must dedicate ourselves to spurring each other on toward love and good deeds; meeting together; and encouraging, teaching and admonishing one another as we submit to His authority over our lives. (Ephesians 1:22-23; 1 Corinthians 12:27; Hebrews 10:24–25; Colossians 3:16)

Evangelism and Discipleship:
We believe that the ministries of evangelism (proclaiming the message of salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ) and discipleship (helping followers of Christ grow up into maturity in Christ) are the responsibilities of all followers of Jesus Christ. (Matthew 28:18–20; Romans 10:9– 15; 1 Peter 3:15)

Water baptism is an outward expression of an inward commitment to the Lord. We believe in full immersion baptism, as it symbolically represents the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ. It is a declaration made to show an intent to walk with Him in newness of life. (Matthew 28:19, Acts 10:47–48, Romans 6:4).

The Lord’s Supper is a symbol and remembrance of His suffering and sacrifice on the cross. (1 Corinthians 11:26). All who have professed faith and accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior are welcome to participate in communion.

Tithes and Offerings:
Tithing is an opportunity for an individual to honor God with a portion of the financial wealth that God has provided. This is a voluntary opportunity to show God we understand He has blessed the work of our hands (Deuteronomy 2:7) and we honor Him and His work in the world. Offerings are over and above the tithe and an expression of praise to Him for providing above and beyond our needs. We are further commanded by God to share with those who teach us, giving unto the teacher, “all good things.” (Galatians 6:6).

Missions and Service:
We believe that God has called the Church to work together to spread the gospel message to all nations. We believe His word calls us to make disciples according to the teachings of Jesus Christ regardless of the social or financial status, and to minister to the needs of all through sacrificial giving and service. (Isaiah 58:6–12; 61:1; Matthew 5:1–7:28; 28:18–20; Luke 4:18; 21:1–4; Galatians 2:10; 1 Timothy 6:8)

Sexuality and Marriage:
We will teach and uphold God’s design for marriage as found in the scriptures. Marriage is the union of a man (husband) and a woman (wife) through a covenant designed by God. God created humankind in His image, intentionally male and female, each bringing unique and important qualities to relationships. We are all broken people and all fall short of God’s standards and we will not turn away anyone seeking to develop a relationship with the Lord and will minister with love and compassion, while fully teaching and upholding the word of God. (Genesis 1:27, Hebrews 13:4, I Corinthians 7:35, Matthew 19:4–6)

Sanctity of Life:
We believe that God created man from “the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life.” (Genesis 2:7) He made men and women in his image (Genesis 1:26–27), formed us in our mother’s womb, and He knew us in the beginning, even before we were formed. (Psalm 139:13–16) For that reason, we believe that all life is sacred from beginning to its natural end.
