Our Message

We cling to the truth

that the gospel of Jesus Christ changes everything. We are everyday people who love the word of God and endeavor to live in community. Please join us for transforming study of the Bible, God-focused worship, and hospitable fellowship to the glory of God.

Doctrine of the Scriptures

We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, in which the Holy Spirit actively superintended the writing down of Scripture by the human authors so that it is verbally, plenarily, and authoritatively preserved from error in the original autographs (II Tim. 3:16; Mark 12:36; II Peter 1:20-21).

Doctrine of God

Genesis 1:1, “In the beginning God…” We believe this is the absolute, sovereign, and eternal ruler of the universe who has His existence, substance, and being in Himself (Deut. 4:35, 39; Psalm 90:2). We believe God exists with all of His attributes totally, all being necessary to His existence. We believe there is only one God, but in the unity of the Godhead there are three eternal persons, each distinct and equal: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Deut. 6:4; Matt. 3:16-17; 28:19; II Cor. 13:14; I Peter 1:2).

Doctrine of Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ is God. He is the Son of God, equal to the Father and the Holy Spirit (Gen. 22:11-15; Exodus 3:2-6; Joshua 5:13-15; John 1:1-5; 8:58; Phil. 2:6; Col. 1:13-17). We believe that Jesus Christ was born of the virgin Mary, being conceived by the Holy Spirit (Isaiah 7:14; Matt. 1:16-20). While He is really man, He is also truly God (Matt. 4:2; 28:18-20; Luke 2:52; 23:46; John 1:3, 48; 4:6; 5:25; 10:30; 14:23; 19:28; Gal. 4:4; Phil. 2:7-8, 10; Col. 1:17; Heb. 1:6-8; 13:8). We believe Jesus Christ died voluntarily on the cross, was buried, and rose again (I Cor. 15; II Cor. 5:21; Col. 1:14; I Tim. 4:10; I Peter 2:24; I John 2:2). We believe that Jesus Christ ascended to heaven and took His place at the right hand of God and is there preparing a place for us and making intercession for the saints (Acts 1:9-11; Eph. 1:20-21; Heb. 7:25; 9:24; I Peter 3:22; John 14:2-3). 

Doctrine of the Holy Spirit

We believe the Holy Spirit is God. The Holy Spirit possesses all the attributes of deity and of personality, being equal and of the same nature as God the Father and God the Son. This is proved by His being equally associated with other persons of the Godhead (I Cor. 6:11, 19-20; II Cor. 13:14), by His characteristics (Psalm 139:7; Luke 11:13; I Cor. 2:10-11), and by His works (Gen. 1:2; Luke 1:35; John 3:5-6; II Thess. 2:13; II Peter 1:21). Believers are encouraged to be filled with the Holy Spirit (Eph. 5:18). All believers are baptized by the Holy Spirit once, at the moment of conversion into the body of Christ (Romans 8:9; I Cor. 12:13; Eph. 4:5).

Doctrine of Salvation

We believe that salvation is the free gift of God offered to sinful men. This gift cannot be earned or deserved but comes only by the grace of God through faith in Jesus Christ, who alone was able to provide the payment for the penalty of sin. When a sinner trusts in the finished work of Christ, the fact that Christ died for his sins and rose again from the dead, he is born into the family of God. (John 3:16; Acts 16:31; Eph. 2:8-9; I John 5:1).

Doctrine of the Church

We believe the universal church is the “Body of Christ” which is composed of all regenerated people from Pentecost until the Rapture, and of which Christ is the Head (Matt. 16:18; Eph. 1:22-23; 3:10; 5:24-25). We believe the local church is a local body of believers gathered together for fellowship, worship, teaching, and partaking of the ordinances and worldwide proclamation of the Gospel (Acts 2:41-42; 20:28; I Cor. 11:23-26; I Tim. 3; Heb. 10:25). 

Doctrine of Last Things

We believe in the pre-tribulational, pre-millennial return of the Lord Jesus Christ. After the tribulation, Christ will bodily return to earth to establish His Kingdom for a thousand years. Christ will cast all who have rebelled against Him into the lake of fire, and a new heaven and earth will be established for all eternity (John 14:3; I Cor. 3:11-17; 15:51-53; II Cor. 5:10; I Thess. 4:13-17; Rev. 19:11-21; 20:11-15; 21:1)
