What We Believe

                                                    STATEMENT OF FAITH

* WE BELIEVE God is the Creator, Sovereign over creation.  He eternally exists in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

* WE BELIEVE Jesus Christ is the Son of God, equal with the Father.  Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for all by dying on a cross.

*WE BELIEVE the Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God.  He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ.

*WE BELIEVE the Bible is God’s Word.  Through the Bible God reveals Himself-His character and His will- to human beings.

* WE BELIEVE salvation is a gift from God.  Human beings can never put God in our debt so that He owes us salvation.

*WE BELIEVE baptism by immersion symbolizes the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  Baptism is the public declaration that one has accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

*WE BELIEVE communion, or the Lord’s Supper, is an ordinance given by Jesus Christ to remember His sacrifice for us and to symbolize the new covenant.
