What We Believe

What We Believe About God

We believe there is only one true and living God. He is immutable, and infinite. He is not only a reality. He is the Ultimate Reality, an intelligent Spirit, and the Creator of all. We believe in the unity of the Godhead, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit; revealed in three distinct persons, coequal in divine perfection, executing distinct but harmonious offices in the great work of redemption.

What We Believe About Jesus

We believe Jesus is Savior, Lord Christ, and the incarnate reality of God. He was the walking revelation of God’s love to humanity. He embodied grace. He died on the cross for the redemption of God’s creation. He got up on Resurrection Sunday morning to confirm to the world that God is still in control of Heaven and Earth.

What We Believe About the Holy Spirit

We believe in the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is Christ in present tense empowering the believer, energizing the church and encouraging Christians that God is still with us. He convicts us of sin. He points us to truth. He leads us into righteousness.

What We Believe About the Scripture

We believe that the scripture is God’s Word. God is the author and salvation is it’s end. It is his written authority for the Church. The scripture was given to ordinary men through inspiration. The scripture is inerrant in principle and infallible in content.

What We Believe About Salvation

We believe in God’s saving grace; that the blessings of salvation are free to all through the Gospel; that the requisite of acceptance is a thankful, penitent and obedient faith; that nothing interferes with the salvation of the sinner except his refusal of the Gospel. Man’s disbelief is his condemnation.

What We Believe About Justification

We believe that justification is being brought into a right relationship with God. His position is accomplished without consideration of good works (of righteousness). That justification is the pardoning of sin, the gift of eternal life displays God’s love for human-kind, and that by faith in the redemptive blood of Jesus Christ was His righteousness given to us.

What We Believe About Baptism and Communion

We believe baptism is a visual demonstration of God’s inward renewal in the life of the believer. We believe that Christian baptism is the immersion in water of a believer into the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. It is the symbol of Christ’s death, burial and resurrection to a new life.

It is a prerequisite to the privileges of the church in relation to the Lord’s Supper. Jesus Christ took bread and wine established them as the imperishable symbols of the church. The Lord’s table is open to all people in the faith who desire to fellowship with Him.

What We Believe About the Church

We believe in the church. The visible church of Christ is a congregation of baptized believers. The church is the prolonged incarnation of Jesus Christ; His body, bride and building witnessing to the world through word and sacrament. We believe the only scriptural offices of the church are Pastors and deacons whose qualifications, claims and duties are defined in Paul’s epistles to Timothy and Titus.
