"Where two or three come together in my name, I am there with them." — Matthew 18:20

WE BELIEVE there is only one true God. God is omnipotent (all-powerful), omnipresent (present in all places at the same time), and omniscient (knowing all things). He is the sovereign God. God exists, simultaneously and eternally, and reveals Himself to us as one in three distinct personalities biblically called the ‘Godhead’: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. God is without division of essence, nature, mind, or will. We believe that the economy of God moves in concert executing the will of God the Father fulfilled by Christ the Son, by the power of the Holy Spirit. Genesis 1:1, 26-27; 3:22 Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; Acts 17:29; Romans 1:20; Colossians 2:9; I Peter 1:2; II Corinthians 13:14

WE BELIEVE God as Father reigns with providential care over His universe, His creatures, and the flow of the stream of human history according to the purposes of His grace. He is all-powerful, all-knowing, all-loving, and all-wise. God is Father in truth to those who become children of God through faith in Jesus Christ. He is fatherly in His attitude toward all men. Genesis 1:1; 2:7; Exodus 3:14; 6:2-3; Leviticus 22:2; Deuteronomy 6:4; 32:6; 1 Chronicles 29:10; Psalm 19:1-3; Isaiah 43:3,15; 64:8; Jeremiah 10:10; 17:13; Matthew 7:11; 23:9; 28:19; Mark 1:9-11; John 4:24; 5:26; 14:6-13; 17:1-8; Acts 1:7; Romans 8:14-15; 1 Corinthians 8:6; Galatians 4:6; Ephesians 4:6; Colossians 1:15; 1 Timothy 1:17; Hebrews 11:6; 12:9; 1 Peter 1:17; 1 John 5:7.

WE BELIEVE Jesus Christ is the eternal and only begotten Son of God. He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He died on the cross and in His substitutionary death; He made provision for the redemption of men from sin. God raised him from the dead, he appeared unto His disciples ascended into heaven, and is now exalted at the right hand of God where He is the One Mediator, our High Priest and Advocate. Matthew 1:22-23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5; 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14-15; I Corinthians 15:3-4; Romans 1:3-4; Acts 1:9-11; I Timothy 6:14-15; Titus 2:13

WE BELIEVE The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God, complete and divine. Through illumination, He enables men to understand and receive the truth. He inspired men of old to write the scriptures. The ministry of the Holy Spirit is to exalt the Lord Jesus Christ, convict men of sin, regenerate the redeemed sinner, indwell, guide, instruct, and empower the believer for Godly living, worship, and service. He enlightens and empowers the believer and the church in worship, evangelism, and service. Judges 14:6; Job 26:13; Psalms 51:11; Isaiah 61:1-3; Joel 2:28-32; John 16:7-13; 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; 2:4; I Corinthians 2:12, 3:16; II Corinthians 3:17; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 5:18

WE BELIEVE The Bible is the infallible Word of God, that it is Holy and perfect instruction. It is divinely inspired, salvation is its end, and truth is its matter. It is food for the spirit that sustains us in all circumstances. All scripture is a testimony to Christ, who is Himself the focus of divine revelation. It is the supreme and final authority. II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20-21; II Timothy 1:13; Psalms 119:105, 160; 12:6; Proverbs 30:5

WE BELIEVE In the image of God was man created but fell into sin and therefore is lost, and only the grace of God can bring man into His Holy fellowship and enable man to fulfill the creative purpose of God. All men need to come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ through His shed blood on the Cross. The sacredness of humanity is evident in that God created man in his image, and in that, Christ died for man; therefore, every person of every race possesses full dignity and is worthy of respect and Christian love. Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a; Romans 3:23; Isaiah 59:1-2

WE BELIEVE Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man. It is freely offered to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Salvation is eternal redemption for the believer through the shed blood, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. In an all-inclusive sense, salvation includes regeneration, justification, sanctification, and glorification. There can be no salvation apart from personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord. John 3:16; Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9 John 14:6, 1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1

WE BELIEVE the believer is secure in eternity by reason of salvation through Jesus Christ as a gift from God the Father. Salvation is maintained not by the self-effort of the Christian, but by the grace and power of God. It is the keeping power of God’s grace that gives the believer this security. John 10:28-30; II Timothy 1:12; Hebrews 7:25; 10:10-14; I Peter 1:3-5; Romans 8:35-39

WE BELIEVE Baptism of the believer should be by immersion in water, in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It is an act of obedience that we publicly identify with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is the prerequisite to the Lord’s Supper. Matthew 3:13-17, 28:19-20; Mark 1:9-11, Luke 3:21-22; John 3:23; Acts 2:41-42; Romans 6:3-5; Colossians 2:12

WE BELIEVE The Lord’s Supper is a symbolic act of obedience whereby members of the Church partake of the bread and the fruit of the vine to commemorate the death of the Lord Jesus Christ until He comes again. Jesus Christ instituted it. Matthew 26:26-30; Mark 14:22-26; Luke 22:19-20; I Corinthians 11:23-29

WE BELIEVE Worship is reserved for the Lord God. We believe in the complete worship of the Lord God in Spirit and truth; that we are to worship Him with our whole being and instrument without reservation. Psalm 9:1-5, 34:1-3, 95:1-3, 96:1-4a, 100:1-5, 105:1-3, 150:1-6; John 4:23; Acts 16:25

WE BELIEVE Family is the matrix and foundation of society. We believe that the family is a God-ordained institution for humanity. Its composition is made up of people related to one another by marriage, blood, or adoption. We further believe that family begins with the Holy matrimony of one man to one woman in covenant for a lifetime with God, before God. The husband and wife are equal in value to the Lord God. The husband/father is to be the priest, protector, and provider of his home. The wife/mother is to be supportive of her husband first, collaborating with him in managing the affairs of the home and nurturing the development of the children. Parents are to teach and demonstrate to their children God’s pattern for Christian living, moral values, character and integrity, and a strong work ethic through loving discipline and biblical teaching. Children are to honor and obey their parents. Exodus 20:12; Proverbs 23:24, 31; Malachi 4:6; Ephesians 5:21-6:4, I Timothy 3:4-5
