Our Doctrinal Statement

We  believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of  God.  It is as relevant today as the day it was recorded.

  We believe that there is one God who has always been and will always be existent in three persons: the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit.

   We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death.

     We believe that His shed blood is the total payment for our righteousness, that He was bodily raised from the dead and that He now sits at the right hand of God the Father.

   We believe that you are saved by grace alone and that good words are evidence of the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit.

   We believe in the present work of the Holy Spirit in all the ways described in the Bible.

   We believe in the resurrection of all people to stand judgment for the lives they lived here on earth.  Those who have refused Christ to be sent to eternal damnation and the saved to their reward in heaven.

   We believe that all believers share in a common heritage as God's children.
