What We Believe

The theology of the present aims at the deification of man, but the truth of all time magnifies God.  - C.H. Spurgeon

We believe that the main purpose of the church is to glorify God.

While conformity in all doctrine is not essential to membership, these beliefs are what you will hear from the pulpit.

As we read the Scriptures, we see the overarching themes of a triune God’s sovereignty, providence,
power, and provision to redeem mankind and the created order to Himself through Jesus Christ.

WE BELIEVE IN:
  • The divine inspiration of the scriptures, the Holy Bible, inerrant and infallible in their original autographs as the revelation of God to mankind, and they are of supreme and final authority on all matters including marriage, family, sexuality, social roles, morality and ethics.
  • The literal six-day, special creation of the universe and all it contains as good, as a result of the spoken word of God as recorded in Genesis.
  • The fall of all mankind into sin and its consequences due to the willful disobedience of the first created man, Adam. 
  • The total depravity of mankind and their inability to work, merit, or earn righteousness in and of themselves.
  • The virgin birth and deity of Jesus Christ, the Perfect Man, and the eternal Son of God.
  • The sinless life and impeccable character of Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son.
  • The willing sacrificial death of Jesus Christ as a substitutionary atonement for the penalty of our sin.
  • The bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ.
  • The ascension of Jesus to the right hand of God in heaven, and His present life there as High Priest and Advocate for us.
  • Salvation by grace alone through faith alone in the finished work of Jesus Christ alone.
  • The divine empowering and birth of the church on the day of Pentecost, with the power and presence of the Holy Spirit.
  • The empowering and anointing of each follower of Christ, with the baptism of the Holy Spirit and the continuing operation of the gifts of the Spirit for the purpose of edification, encouragement, strengthening and building up of the church enumerated in 1 Corinthians 12-14.
  • The lifestyle of obedience as the greatest expression of our love and devotion to God being both Creator and Redeemer.
  • The establishing of a vibrant, glorious, and victorious church as a vital instrument for reaching the world for Jesus Christ.
  • The visible and bodily return of the Lord Jesus Christ at the end of the age as the Scriptures have promised.
  • The future resurrections of both the redeemed to eternal life, and of the unregenerate to judgment and destruction.
  • The ordinances of the Church, given by the Lord being water baptism and the Lord’s Table (Communion).
