Creed

We believe the Bible is the verbally inspired, infallible word of God. It is the true and complete revelation of God's will for salvation; it is the final, supreme authority on faith and practice for every believer.

We believe in one true God who is creator of and perfect in all things, eternally existing in three distinct persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.We believe Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. We believe in His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His substitutionary death on a cross, His atonement for our sins, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, His imminent return to earth, His ultimate judgment of all humanity. Through faith in Him, we receive forgiveness and eternal salvation.

We believe the Holy Spirit ministers to and through His church, indwelling, regenerating, sanctifying, equipping and empowering believers to glorify God.

We are all sinners by nature and because of our disobedience, we are condemned and separated from God. Jesus is God's plan to reconcile his church back to Himself. The Christian church (the body and bride of Christ) is composed of all people who believe in Jesus Christ. Corporately and individually, these members strive to glorify God with their whole being, which is evidenced by love through good works.
