What We Believe

About God:

We believe in the one true and living God, manifested as the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost.  He is revealed as the Father in creation, the Son in redemption, and the Holy Spirit as God’s spirit dwelling in us. Deut. 6:9, John 10:30, John 14:9

About Baptism:

We baptize through immersion, following the model of Christ’s baptism, which signifies our union with Him in death to sin, burial of the old nature, and resurrection to new life.  Acts 2:38,  Acts 19:1-7, Acts 10:44-48, John 3:5,  Romans 6:4-5

The Bible:

We believe the bible is the inspired Word of God and the final authority for truth and salvation.  2 Tim. 3:15-17, 1 Thess. 2:13,  2 Peter 1:21

Worship and Prayer:

We believe God created us for fellowship with Him and worship of Him.   We believe worship is a lifestyle, not an event.  We believe prayer connects to God, communicates our love for and total dependence on Him, and is our intercession for our community.  We believe both individual and group prayer are vital parts of every Christian’s lifestyle. 1 Thess 5:17, Matt 21:22, Rom 12:1, Rom 12:12, Col 4:2, 1 Chron 16:29,  Psalm 66:4, Psalm 86:9, John 4:23-24
