While we believe the totality of the Scriptures (Bible), we only list what we consider our irreducibles. These are cardinal to our evangelical faith and let you know that we are a Bible-believing congregation. We hold dear the priesthood of every believer and emphasize shared ministry. We also stress the soul competency of every believer to interpret Scripture . . . but always under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Bible . . .
...is the inspired, written Word of God and the final and only basis for our beliefs, and it is our all sufficient rule of faith and practice.
God . . .
There is one and only one living and true God. He is an intelligent, spiritual and personal Being, the Creator, Redeemer, Preserver, and Ruler of the universe. He is infinite in holiness and all other perfections. The eternal God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being.
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. He is all powerful, all loving, and all wise. God is Father in truth to those who become children of God through faith in Jesus Christ. He is fatherly in His attitude to all men.
Jesus Christ is the Son of God . . .
...is co-equal and co-eternal with the Father and the Holy Spirit. He is "the Word that became flesh," was conceived of the Holy Spirit, was born of the Virgin Mary, lived a sinless life upon the earth, died vicariously for our sins, was resurrected on the first day of the week, ascended to heaven, and is the One Mediator between God and man, partaking of the nature of God and man, and in Him is effected the reconciliation between God and man. He will return in power and glory to judge the world and to consummate His redemptive mission. He now dwells in all believers as the living and ever-present Lord.
The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God . . .
He inspired holy men of old to write the Scriptures. Through illumination He enables men to understand truth. He exalts Christ. He convicts of sin. He baptizes all believers into the one Body of Christ. He seals the believer unto the day of redemption. He indwells each believer. He fills (controls) each believer as they yield to the Lordship of Christ. He cultivates Christian character, comforts believers, and bestows the spiritual gifts by which they serve God through His Church. He enlightens and empowers the believer and the Church in worship, evangelism and service.
Man . . .
...was created by the special act of God, in His own image, and is the crowning work of His creation. In the beginning man was innocent of sin and was endowed by his Creator with freedom of choice. By his free choice, after being tempted by Satan, man sinned against God and brought sin into the human race. Through this transgression of the law of God, man fell from his original innocence, whereby his posterity inherit a nature and an environment inclined toward sin, and as soon as they are capable or moral action become transgressors and are under condemnation. Only the grace of God can bring man into His holy fellowship and enable man to fulfill the creative purpose of God. 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 man possesses dignity and is worthy of respect and Christian love.
Salvation . . .
...which involves the redemption of the whole man, is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. It is the act of God's grace. It is not based on human merit, goodness, or other considerations. In its broadest sense salvation includes regeneration (new birth), sanctification, and glorification. Regeneration (new birth) is a work of God's grace whereby believers become new creations in Christ Jesus. It is a change of heart wrought by the Holy Spirit through conviction of sin, to which the sinner responds in repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. All sinners who repent and believe in Christ are justified before the Lord. Sanctification is the experience, beginning in regeneration, by which the believer is set apart to God's purposes, and is enabled to progress toward moral and spiritual perfection through the presence and power of the Holy Spirit dwelling in him. Growth in grace should continue throughout the regenerate person's life. Glorification is the culmination of salvation and is the final blessed and abiding state of the redeemed.
The Church . . .
...is the Body of Christ which includes all of the redeemed of all ages. This one, invisible, universal Body of Christ is visibly manifested in local congregations which teach the truth of God's word. A church of the Lord Jesus Christ is a local body of baptized believers who are associated by covenant in the faith and fellowship of the gospel, observing the two ordinances of Christ, committed to His teachings, exercising the gifts, rights, and privileges invested in them by His word, and seeking to extend the Gospel to the ends of the earth.
The two ordinances of Christ are Baptism and the Lord's Supper. Baptism is an act of obedience which symbolizes 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. Total immersion in water is the purest mode of baptism, symbolizing death, burial and resurrection. The ordinances are not sacramental, but symbolic in nature.
Last Things . . .
God, in His own time and in His own way, will bring the world to its appropriate end. According to His promise, Jesus Christ will return personally and visibly in glory to the earth; the dead will be raised; and Christ will judge all men in righteousness. The unrighteous will be consigned to Hell, the place of everlasting punishment. The righteous in their resurrected and glorified bodies will receive their reward and will dwell forever in Heaven with the Lord. Convictions about the rapture, in relation to the tribulation, and the millennium are not to be points of fellowship, but points of discussion. In these areas we agree to disagree agreeably.
Marriage and Family . . .
God has ordained the family as the foundational institution of human society. It is composed of persons related to one another by marriage, blood, or adoption.
Marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in covenant commitment for a lifetime. It is God's unique gift to reveal the union between Christ and His church and to provide for the man and the woman in marriage the framework for intimate companionship, the channel of sexual expression according to biblical standards, and the means for procreation of the human race.
Our church building is not a public space and our church ministers aren’t justices of the peace. We will marry and host weddings, only for those who have accountability to the people of Christ and to the Word of God.
