Who is god?

We believe in God the Father, Jesus Christ His Son, and the Holy Spirit as the Trinity revealed in the Bible

the love of God, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.                                        - 2 corinthians 13:16


God's plan

We believe that people, although created in God image, are separated from God because of our sin. God is just and merciful and offers salvation to everyone through the atoning death of Jesus Christ on the cross

salvation is a gift that is available to all, but is received by personal belief or faith, turning from sin and trusting our lives to Jesus

and the testimony is this, that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his son. he who has the son has the life; he who does not have the son of God does not have the life                                                            - 1 john 5:11-2


god's word

We believe That the Bible is God’s Holy Word. It is the authority for our beliefs and our morals. Each person is accountable to God to discern God’s Will through the indwelling Presence of the Holy Spirit

all scripture is inspired by god and profitable for teaching. for reproof, for correction. for training in righteousness                                   - 2 timothy 3:16


god's people

We believe that the Church is the Body of Christ. We are God’s people living in the world today for the purpose of glorifying him. THE CHURCH IS called to WORSHIP, DISCIPLESHIP, EVANGELISM, MINISTRY, AND FELLOWSHIP. we observe the Biblical ordinances of  Baptism and the Lord's Supper

go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the father, and the son, and the holy spirit, teaching them to observe all that i commanded you. and I am with you always, even to the end of the age.                                                                               - matthew 28:19-20
