The central focus of our faith and life is Jesus Christ. We believe He is God’s Son who lived a sinless life on this earth and paid for our sins by dying on the cross in our place. It is by the grace of God through Jesus Christ we are saved. We believe there is no other name but Jesus by which we must be saved (Acts 4:12).
All people must decide for themselves if they believe the wonderful story of Jesus and put their complete trust in Him. Our faith focuses on and responds to Jesus Christ and what he has done to save us by means of His life, death, burial and resurrection. An integral part of that faith response is baptism by immersion for the forgiveness of sins (Acts 2:38). Baptism is a declaration of one’s faith and the beginning point for one’s newness of life in Jesus Christ (Romans 6:3-4).
As a church, we believe we can be the body of Christ in this community. We are dedicated to imitating Jesus collectively and in our individual daily lives. We are empowered by the Holy Spirit to make a difference in every area of our lives. We gather as a church to praise God and to encourage one another so we can share the Good News of Jesus Christ with others every day. We learn about Jesus and God’s love for man primarily from the Bible. We believe the Bible is the inspired word of God and is to be used for instruction, encouragement and training (2 Timothy 3:16-17). The Bible is God’s authoritative revelation of His will for us. The Bible is our primary resource. Jesus is our Savior and model.
These beliefs are echoed more fully by our Elder's in their Statement of Faith.
