What We Believe

We believe that the Bible, both the Old and New Testaments, are the inspired, genuine Word of God.

We believe that God is eternally existent in three separate persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe that God the Father is the personal Creator of all things.
We believe that Jesus Christ is fully God and fully human, that He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, provided for the forgiveness of our sins by His death on the cross, and was bodily resurrected, went back to God the Father, and ever lives to pray for us.
We believe that all people are by nature separated from God and responsible for their own sin, but that salvation is freely offered to all by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. When a person repents of sin and accepts Jesus Christ as personal Savior and Lord, that person’s sins are forgiven, and he/she becomes a child of God, destined to spend eternity with Jesus.
We believe in the power of the Holy Spirit and the gifts of the Holy Spirit are valid for today.
We believe in the second coming of Christ.
We believe in a real heaven and eternal separation from God.
