What We Believe

It is our desire to create disciple-making communities. We do this by reaching people, teaching them to love and serve Jesus, and sending them to reach, teach, and send others. We believe that: 

    • Jesus Christ is Lord to the Glory of God the Father And every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 3:10)
    • We believe the Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is a perfect treasure of heavenly instruction. (2 Timothy 3:15-17)
    • We believe that there is only one true God. He is revealed to us as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, each with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature. (John 4:23-24; Matthew 28:19)
    • We believe that man was created by God in a state of holiness but through the temptation of Satan, he transgressed the command of God by free choice and fell from his original state. (Genesis 1:27; 3:6-24;  Romans 5:19
    • We believe that salvation involves the redemption of the whole man and is offered to all through the Son of God, the Lord Jesus Christ.  (Ephesians 2:8,9; John 3:16)
    • We believe that justifiation is God's gracious and full acquittal upon principles of righteousness of all sinners who believe in Jesus Christ. (Romans 5:1, 2;Acts 13-38-39)
    • We believe that regeneration or the new birth is a change of heart brought by the Holy Spirit. (John 3:3; 2 Corinthians 5:17)
    • We believe that sanctification is the process by which we are made partakers of His holiness; that it is a progressive work; that it is begun in regeneration; and that it is carried on in the hearts of believers by the presence and power of the Holy Spirit. (1 Peter 1:2; I Thessalonians 5:23-24)
    • We believe that Christian baptism is the immersion in water of a believer.
    • The Lord’s Supper is the commemoration of the death of the Lord Jesus, preceded by solemn self-examination. (Acts 8:36-39; I Corinthians 11:23-26)
    • We believe that the Scriptures clearly teach that Jesus rose from the dead. He now exists in His glorified body at God’s right hand.
    • There will be a resurrection of the righteous and the wicked.
    • The bodies of the righteous will conform to the glorious spiritual body of Jesus Christ. (Matthew 20:17-19, Mathew 28:6-7; John 5:28-29)
