About Us

what we believe

Jesus

Above all else, we believe that Jesus Christ is God's only Son and the world's only Savior. "Thomas said to him, “Lord ... how can we know the way?” Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really knew me, you would know my Father as well." (John 14:5-7)

The Bible

We believe that the Bible is the word of God which communicates His plan for our lives; therefore, we strive to make sure that everything we do is in obedience to His word.

Salvation

We believe that the Bible teaches clearly what one must do in order to be saved:

  • Believe-“I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life." (John 5:24)
  • Repent- Acknowledge the sin in your life and and turn away from it. Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. (Acts 2:38)
  • Confess- Outwardly proclaim that you believe in Christ.
  • “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?” Peter

    answered, “You are the Christ.” (Mark 8:29)

  • Be Baptized- "And now what are you waiting for? Get up, be baptized and wash your sins away, calling on his name." (Acts 22:16)
  • Remain in Christ- Hold Christ as your hope and salvation throughout the rest of your life. “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you.
  • Now remain in my love. (John 15:9)

    Christ's Return

    We believe that Jesus Christ will physically, literally,and visibly return to this earth. On that day he will exercise judgment against evil and bring salvation to those who have accepted his gift.

    The Church

    We believe that the church exists on earth to seek the lost, serve others, and faithfully preach and live out the truth.
