Why Our Beliefs

Concerning God.

We believe that God exists as Trinity. He is one God who exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 64:8; Matthew 3:16–17, Matthew 28:19; John 16:7–15; Hebrews 1:2–3

Concerning Scripture.

We believe that the Bible is God’s inspired and inerrant word written for humanity.

Psalm 19:7–10; 2 Timothy 3:15–17; 2 Peter 1:19–21

Concerning Humanity.

We believe that all people were created in the image of God. He created them as male and female with equality in personhood and importance yet with differences in roles.

Genesis 1:26–27, Genesis 2:18; Isaiah 43:7; Psalm 96:9; Matthew 4:10; Galatians 3:28; 1 Timothy 2:11–15

Concerning Salvation.

All of humanity is born into sin and begin separated from God. But God has provided a way to get rid of sin and begin a relationship with himself through belief in His Son Jesus Christ. Salvation is God’s gift to humanity through grace. We could never make up for our sin through self-improvement or good works. We can only be saved by accepting the grace of God extended to us by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offering for sin.

John 3:16; Acts 2:22–39; Romans 3:21–24

Concerning the Church.

We believe that the Church is the body of Christ on earth. It is made up of individual disciples who live on mission and in covenant with other local believers to point others to God and bring him glory.

1 Corinthians 12:12–31; Ephesians 4:11–16; Colossians 1:18–20, Colossians 3:12–25; 1 Peter 2:9; Hebrews 10:24–25

Concerning Baptism,

We believe that baptism is the immersion of someone who has repented and believed in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Baptism does not save anyone, but it is the first step of obedience of a disciple who has identified with Christ’s death and resurrection.

Matthew 3:6, Matthew 13–17; Acts 2:38-41, Acts 22:16; Romans 6:4–11; 1 Peter 3:21

Concerning Elders & Deacons.

We believe that God has instituted two distinct offices within the local church, that of the elder and deacon. Deacons are a group of qualified men and women who serve the physical needs of the congregation. Elders, which includes pastors, are the spiritual leaders of a congregation who serve to preach the Word, preserve the flock, and protect against false teaching.

Romans 16:1; 1 Timothy 3:1–7; Titus 1:6–9; 1 Peter 5:1–5
