HUGE QUESTION!

We believe a lot of stuff. It’s all important and it’s all from the Bible and I don’t think you want me to give you an exhaustive answer to your question. So, to give a brief outline is about all I can give. But, if you want more, you can always come to our church, ask a question, or read from one of the links listed…

We believe that God has revealed Himself to mankind and the words of the Holy Bible express some of those revelations for us to know Him.

Scriptures are the Inerrant, Infallible, God-breathed word as the authority in all things. We believe what it says, teach what it says, seek to practice what it says, and we don’t add to it or take away from it.

We believe in the Trinity, Jesus Christ – fully God and fully man, Salvation by grace through faith alone.

We believe Jesus died for the sins of all people throughout all the ages in every place. He also desires all to be saved.

We believe that Jesus was crucified, confirmed dead by government officials, placed in a tomb, rose from the dead in his physical body, and ascended to heaven. He is alive in His eternal body that will never die and still works to deliver people from their bondage to sin so that they can be free to live eternally.

We believe that the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God. That Spirit actually gives faith (belief) and trust in Jesus as the Savior to people. The Holy Spirit directs us to look to the cross of Christ for our salvation. He works to direct our ways and guides us in life by faith.

We believe in a literal 6-day creation. We believe that we are incapable of knowing God fully as He is infinite, all-knowing, everywhere-present, all-seeing, all-hearing, unequivocal, perfect, unlimited, immortal…and a bunch of other awesome words that are so beyond our abilities that we are incapable of uttering them. God is God and we are not.

We believe the Christian church was started by Jesus Christ to be the institution by which His true followers believe, teach, confess, evangelize, proclaim, and live according to His ways for the benefit of His many blessings.

We believe that humans are sinful from conception (Psalm 51), born as sinners, and enemies of God. We also believe that this is why we need to be given salvation from outside of ourselves. Salvation is a gift from God through Jesus Christ and can only be gained by His grace through faith that is given by the Holy Spirit. Only God gets the glory for any good thing.
