what we believe
We believe that the Church is the Body of Christ and that every other body is foreign to the will of God through the New Testament scriptures. We believe the church to be not a physical building but the universal body of baptized believers living in relationship and harmony under the direction of the head, Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 6:15; 2 Corinthians 1:1; Romans 16:5; 1 Peter 2:4-5; Ephesians 2:19-22; 1 Corinthians 12:12-31; Romans 12:4-5; Ephesians 4:11-16.)
We believe there is one God, manifested in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God is the Creator of all things and the Ruler of the Universe (Philippians 2:6; Matthew 3:16-17; John 10:30).
We believe Jesus Christ is alive. He is Son of God, God the son and head of the Church. He existed before the beginning, came to earth through a virgin birth, fully God and fully man. He was crucified and He rose again three days later, providing salvation for all mankind. (John 1:1; Isaiah 9:6, Acts 1:9-11).

The HOLY SPIRIT
We believe the Holy Spirit dwells in the hearts of all believers. He gives us the power to live the Christian life, guides us into what is right, and reveals all truth (John 15:26; 2 Corinthians 3:17, Ephesians 1:13).
We believe the Bible is the inspired infallible Word of God. It is our final authority in determining what we believe, what we practice and how we live (2 Tim. 3:16; I Thess. 2:13; 2 Peter 1:21).
We believe that because of sin, all men are separated from God and in need of salvation. The free gift of salvation is made possible through Jesus Christ, His death on the cross, and His resurrection from the dead. Salvation is available to all, received by grace through obedient faith, and no other way. (Rom 3:23, 2 Cor. 7:10; 1 John 5:12; John 3:3-5).
