Articles Of Faith


  1. We believe that Jesus is The Way, The Truth and The Life and no man comes to the Father except through him.
  2. We believe the Holy Bible is the inspired Word Of God, without any error, the all-sufficient authority in matters of faith, doctrine, and Christian living.
  3. We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons: The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit.
  4. We believe in the virgin birth of Jesus Christ and that he is 100% God and 100% Man. He died on the cross for our sins. He rose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven where he sits on the right hand of the Father and is now our High Priest and Advocate.
  5. We believe that man was created in the image of God, but fell into sin and therefore lost. Only through regeneration by the work of the Holy Spirit can man's salvation and spiritual life be obtained.
  6. We believe that eternal salvation is the free gift of God, entirely apart from man's works and is possessed by any and all who have faith In and receive Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior.
  7. We believe that a person is old enough to understand their need for Jesus Christ and of their own free will can and may accept Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior.
  8. We believe baptism is by immersion and the Lord's Supper is a memorial to his suffering and death on the cross. They are however, not to be regarded as the means for man's salvation.
  9. We believe in the personal, bodily, imminent and glorious return of the Lord Jesus Christ and service for him while waiting for his return.
  10. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead, the everlasting blessedness of the saved in heaven and the everlasting punishment and separation from God of the unsaved in hell.
  11. We believe in the autonomy of the local church. The church shall manage its own affairs and shall not be subject to any other religious body or organization.
