We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
We believe that the Bible is God’s Word. It is accurate, authoritative and applicable to our everyday lives.
THE HUMAN CONDITION
We believe that we are created in the image of God, but that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives.
THE PERSON OF CHRIST
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ as both God and man is the only One who can reconcile us to God. He lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory and empower us for life.
We believe that in order to receive forgiveness of sins and new life in Jesus we must repent of our sins, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and submit to His will for our lives.
We believe that in order to live the holy and fruitful lives that God intends for us, we need to be baptized into union with Christ and filled with the power of the Holy Spirit.
THE LOCAL CHURCH
We believe in the necessity of believers to meet regularly together as a church for fellowship, prayer, encouragement, and teaching.
We believe that God equips us so that we can successfully achieve His purpose for our lives which is to worship God, fulfill our role in the church, serve our community, make disciples among all peoples, and witness to the gospel through what we say and do.
THE SECOND COMING
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised.
We believe that the eternal destiny of the believer is to eternal joy with the Lord in the new heaven and earth and the unbeliever to an eternal hell.
