There is one, and only one living and true God. He is the sovereign Creator and Sustainer of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God, as Father, reigns with providential care over His universe, His creatures, and the flow of the stream of human history according to the purposes of His grace. God is Father, in truth, to those who become children of God through faith in Jesus Christ.
Jesus is God the Son, equal with the Father and the Holy Spirit. He took the form of human flesh in which he was both fully God and fully man. He was born of the Virgin Mary by the Holy Spirit and lived a sinless life, confirming all He taught with mighty works, wonders, and signs. He offered His life as payment for the sins of all people; was crucified, died, and was resurrected on the third day. He returned to the Father’s right hand in heaven where He prays for all of His followers. He will come again personally, bodily, and visibly to judge the living and the dead and to establish His kingdom.

ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit is God, coequal with the Father and Son. He exalts Jesus Christ and He acts to draw persons to salvation in Jesus Christ by convicting them of sin, righteousness and judgment. He indwells all believers at the moment they are saved, and makes available to each Christian power, understanding, and discernment for victorious living, as well as gifts and anointing for service.

ABOUT GOD'S WORD
All Scripture is self-attesting and being Truth, requires our unreserved submission in all areas of life. The infallible Word of God, the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments, is a complete and unified witness to God’s redemptive acts culminating in the incarnation of the Living Word, the Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible, uniquely and fully inspired by the Holy Spirit, is the supreme and final authority on all matters on which it speaks. It stands alone among all the literature in the world in revealing God, the way to fellowship with Him, the lifestyle that pleases Him, and truth.

Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer. In its broadest sense salvation includes regeneration, justification, sanctification, and glorification.
Romans 10:9-10, Matthew 10:32, Romans 14:9
Man is the special creation of God, in His own image. He created them male and female as the crowning work of His creation. By his free choice, man sinned against God and brought sin into the human race. The sacredness of human personality is evident in that God created man in His own image, and in that Christ died for man; therefore every person of every race possesses dignity and is worthy of respect and Christian love.

ABOUT THE CHURCH
A New Testament church, of the Lord Jesus Christ, is an autonomous local congregation of baptized believers, associated by covenant in the faith and fellowship of the gospel, observing the two ordinances of Christ, governed by His laws, exercising the gifts, rights, and privileges invested in them by His Word, and seeking to extend the gospel to the ends of the earth.
Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water. It is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer’s faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior, the believer’s death to sin, the burial of the old life, and the resurrection to walk in newness of life in Christ Jesus.
Communion, also referred to as The Lord’s Supper, is a symbolic act of obedience in which Christians remember the death of the Jesus, our redeemer, and anticipate the time of His second coming.

ABOUT EVANGELISM & MISSIONS
We as a church, and as individuals, have the responsibility to tell others how they can be saved. We believe that God calls us to reach beyond the walls of our church, working together with other Christians to touch the entire world with God’s love and truth.
We are committed to missions. We believe in becoming involved in and supporting ministries whose goal is to reach people for Christ outside of our community, as well as uniting with other churches and ministries to meet the needs of and reach people for Christ within our community.
