A statement of faith
This summary of what we believe is not exhaustive or exclusive. Rather, it states some key scriptural convictions that we as a church agree to. Please search the Scriptures for yourself. If you have any questions or desire further teaching on these issues, we’d love to get in touch.
1. We believe in one God eternally existing as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Genesis1:26; Deuteronomy 6:4-5; John 3:16; Romans 8:1-17; II Corinthians 13:14; I Timothy 3:16, I John 1:7-8
2. We believe that God has revealed himself in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, the inspired Word of God, and supremely in his Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Psalm 19; Luke 24:27-44; John 1:1-16; John 20:31; Romans 1:19-20; Hebrews 1:1-2
3. We believe that in the beginning God created all things by His Son. He made man in the divine image, with free will, moral character, and a spiritual nature.
We believe the account of origins presented in Genesis is a simple but factual presentation of actual events. We believe scripture teaches a recent origin for man and the whole creation, spanning approximately 6000 years from creation to now. Genesis 1-2; John 1:3; Colossians 1:14-17; Hebrews 11:3; Psalms 104
4. We believe that man fell into sin, bringing depravity and death upon the race; that as sinner, man is self-centered and self-willed and unable to break with sin.
We believe that there is one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, who died to redeem us from sin and arose for our justification. Genesis 3:1-19; Matthew 18:1-14; Romans 3:23; Romans 512-21; Ephesians 2:1-5; I Timothy 4:10
5. We believe that salvation is by grace through faith in Christ, a free gift bestowed by God on those who repent and believe. Luke 19:10; John 3:16; John 10:27-29; Romans 5:11; II Corinthians 5:21; I Timothy 2:5;
6. We believe that the Holy Spirit convicts of sin, affects the new birth, gives guidance in life, empowers for service, and enables perseverance in faith and holiness.
We believe that the church is the body of Christ, the brotherhood of the redeemed, a disciplined people obedient to the Word of God, and a fellowship of love, intercession, and healing. John 16:7-15; Acts 1:8; I Corinthians 6:19; Ephesians 1:13-14; John 3:1-21
7. We believe that Christ commissioned the church to go into all the world and witness of Him. In Matthew 28:18-20, he says;
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
8. We believe that there should be established and ordained leadership in the church, called by God and affirmed by the brotherhood. The elders or ministers serve as overseers, pastors, and teachers. The deacons primarily serve in arranging to meet material needs that arise in the congregation and community. Serving together with each member of the body, the church is thus joined together, growing into the fullness of Christ, edifying itself in love. Acts 20:28; I Corinthians 9:14; Ephesians 4:11-16; I Timothy 3:1-13; Titus 1:5-9; Hebrews 13:17
9. We believe that baptism as exemplified by the apostles is to conversion (repenting of sin and accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior) as evidence of our commitment to follow Christ and to work in His Kingdom. Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 22:16; Romans 6:4-6; I Corinthians 12:13
10. We believe that Jesus instituted the Lord’s Table in remembrance of his death, resurrection and looking forward to his coming again. We must therefore personally examine our walk with God and love toward our fellow men as we worship and partake in the Lord’s Table. Luke 22:19-20; I Corinthians 11:23-34
11. We believe that in washing each others’ feet, we show our willingness to serve each other in whatever service God would call us to render, even the most menial of tasks. John 13:1-17; I Timothy 5:10
12. We believe that God has established unique roles for men and women, symbolized by a man’s uncovered head, and a woman’s covered head while praying and prophesying, recognizing God’s divine order. I Corinthians 11:2-24
13. We believe that Christian marriage is intended by God to be the union of one man and one woman for life and that Christians shall marry only in the Lord. Matthew 19:3-9; II Corinthians 6:14; 1 Corinthians 7; Luke 16:18
14. We believe that Christians are not to be conformed to the world, but seek to be conformed to Christ in every area of life. Matthew 7:13-14; Luke 9:23-26; Romans 12:1-2; I Corinthians 6:14-18; Ephesians 4:20-32
15. We believe that Christians are to be open and transparent in life, always speaking the truth. Christ-like love and meekness should guard our speech and actions as we work together as brothers and sisters in the Kingdom of God.
I Corinthians 13:4-8; Titus 3:1-2; James 4:11; II Timothy 3:16-17
16. We believe that the church of God (the bride of Christ) is to be pure and unspotted by the world. Eph.5:27, II Peter 3:14, James 1:27
If a brother falls into sin we are to maintain that purity by speaking to him about it in a manner that shows our love and concern as taught by scripture, our desire being restoration and reconciliation to God. Galatians 6:1; II Timothy 4:2; Titus 2:13-15; Matthew 18:15-17
Scripture is also clear that the one being approached must be open to correction. Proverbs 9:7-8; Proverbs 19:25; John 3:20-21; Proverbs 15:31-32
17. We believe that it is the will of God for Christians to refrain from force and violence in human relations and to show Christ-like love to all men. Matthew 5:38-48; John 18:36
18. We believe that the state is ordained of God to maintain order in society and that Christians should honor rulers, be subject to authorities and be a Christ-like witness and pray for all in authority over us. Romans 13:1-7; I Timothy 2:1-3; Acts 5:29
19. We believe that after death the unsaved enter into everlasting punishment and the saved into their eternal reward with Christ, who is coming again, and will raise the dead, sit in judgment, and bring in God’s everlasting kingdom. Matthew 25:31-46; Mark 9:43-48; Luke 16:19-31; I Thessalonians 4:13-18; 1 Thessalonians 5:1-4; I Peter 1:4
