We believe there is one God, Creator of the heavens and earth, who eternally exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1, Matthew 28:19)
We believe God came to earth in the person of Jesus Christ. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, death, resurrection, that Christ is Heaven with God, and will return to earth in power and glory. (John 1:14)
We believe the Holy Spirit works on the earth in the hearts of believers, helping us to live according to God’s Word. We believe the baptism of the Holy Spirit is an endowment of power available to every Christian through the laying on of hands so spiritual gifts may be manifest including, but not limited to, prophecy and tongues. (Acts 2:1-4, 2 Timothy 1:6)
We believe the Bible is the inspired and true Word of God.
(2 Timothy 3:16-17)

We believe salvation only comes by God’s grace through faith in Jesus Christ. (Romans 10:9-10, Ephesians 2:8)
We believe the church is the primary God-established instrument of praise, worship, nurture and fellowship. (Matthew 18:20, Acts 2:42)
We believe marriage, as defined by an orthodox interpretation of the Bible, is the covenant union of one man and one woman exclusively. (Genesis 2:24, Matthew 19:4-6, Ephesians 5:31)
We believe that the ministry of the church should be funded through tithes and offerings in order that our church’s needs be met and our households are blessed in accordance with 2 Corinthians 9:6-11 and Malachi 3:8-12.
