Our Beliefs

Accepting the Bible to be the very Word of God to man through men, and understanding the importance of knowing and obeying its truths, our church is committed to study and teach with diligence and authority. We strongly seek to teach the Scriptures to people that they may know God and serve Him in worship and ministry.


We teach the entire Bible, all 66 books of the combined Old and New Testaments are verbally inspired by God (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21).

  1. GOD
    We teach that there is only one true, living sovereign, holy, and eternally existent God. He exists in three co-equal persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – each being a distinct person and with a distinct function, but all of one essence and all possessing the same nature, perfection, and attributes (Deuteronomy 6:4-5; Genesis 1:31).

We teach that Jesus Christ is God. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed many miracles, shed His blood on the cross as a vicarious substitute, was buried, bodily resurrected, ascended to the right hand of the Father, and will return literally, visibly, and personally in glory and power (John 1:1-3, 14; Matthew 1:18-25; Philippians 2:5-9; Colossians 1:15; 1 Corinthians 15:1-8, Acts 1:11).


We teach that the Holy Spirit is God, co-equal and co-existent with the Father and the Son. He is the chief convictor of sin, the chief agent of regeneration and sanctification. The Holy Spirit indwells every believer and empowers every believer to live a godly life (John 14:16-19; 16:7-15; 1 Corinthians 6:19-20; Romans 8:9, 11; Titus 3:5; Eph. 4:11-16).

    We teach that in the beginning God created mankind in His image, and is not in any sense the product of evolution(Genesis 1:17, 31).
  2. SIN
    We teach that Adam, the first man, sinned by disobedience. This act resulted in the fall of all mankind, therefore, all people have sinned and lost their ability to live for the glory of God. Mankind’s fall has incurred both physical and spiritual death on all until there is forgiveness and salvation by the grace of God (Genesis 3:1-24; Romans 3:10-23; 5:12-21; 6:23).

We teach that election assures that those chosen will be saved, but it alone does not save them. People are saved through faith in the substitutionary death of Christ (Romans 8:28-30; Ephesians 1:4; 1 Peter 1:2; Romans 10:9-10, 13).


We teach that since God gives us eternal life through Christ, the believer is secure in that salvation forever (John 10:29-30; 2 Timothy 1:12; Hebrews 7:25; 1 John 5:11-13).

    We teach that the church is the body of Christ and the family of God. It is made up of a body of believers, who join together on the Lord’s Day for worship, fellowship, and ministry (Matthew 16:18; 1 Corinthians 12:12-14; Hebrews 10:25).
    We teach that it is the responsibility and privilege of every Christian to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ and to seek to make growing disciples (Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8).

In addition to these important beliefs, we also teach that God has given the parents and the home the responsibility to bring up their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord (Ephesians 6:4; Proverbs 22:6).


We teach that man was created to exist forever. He will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or in union with God through salvation (John 3:16; Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:15).

We teach Jesus instructed His followers to remember His death and resurrection. He gave the church two visible symbols (called “ordinances”) as reminders. These two ordinances are baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Neither of these ordinances contains any saving grace (Matthew 28:18-20; Matthew 26:26-29; 1 Corinithians 11:23-32).

Our Purpose

A sound heart [is] the life of the flesh: but envy the rottenness of the bones.

 1 Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   2 He that walketh in his uprightness feareth the LORD: but [he that is] perverse in his ways despiseth him. [gsn] [jfb]   3 In the mouth of the foolish [is] a rod of pride: but the lips of the wise shall preserve them. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   4 Where no oxen [are], the crib [is] clean: but much increase [is] by the strength of the ox. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   5 A faithful witness will not lie: but a false witness will utter lies. [gsn] [jfb]   6 A scorner seeketh wisdom, and [findeth it] not: but knowledge [is] easy unto him that understandeth. [jfb] [jwc]   7 Go from the presence of a foolish man, when thou perceivest not [in him] the lips of knowledge. [jfb]   8 The wisdom of the prudent [is] to understand his way: but the folly of fools [is] deceit. [jfb] [jwc]   9 Fools make a mock at sin: but among the righteous [there is] favour. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   10 The heart knoweth his own bitterness; and a stranger doth not intermeddle with his joy. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   11 The house of the wicked shall be overthrown: but the tabernacle of the upright shall flourish. [jfb]   12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof [are] the ways of death. [jfb] [jwc]   13 Even in laughter the heart is sorrowful; and the end of that mirth [is] heaviness. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   14 The backslider in heart shall be filled with his own ways: and a good man [shall be satisfied] from himself. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   15 The simple believeth every word: but the prudent [man] looketh well to his going. [jfb] [jwc]   16 A wise [man] feareth, and departeth from evil: but the fool rageth, and is confident. [jfb] [jwc]   17 [He that is] soon angry dealeth foolishly: and a man of wicked devices is hated. [jfb] [jwc]   18 The simple inherit folly: but the prudent are crowned with knowledge. [jfb] [jwc]   19 The evil bow before the good; and the wicked at the gates of the righteous. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   20 The poor is hated even of his own neighbour: but the rich [hath] many friends. [jfb] [jwc]   21 He that despiseth his neighbour sinneth: but he that hath mercy on the poor, happy [is] he. [jfb] [jwc]   22 Do they not err that devise evil? but mercy and truth [shall be] to them that devise good. [jfb]   23 In all labour there is profit: but the talk of the lips [tendeth] only to penury. [jfb] [jwc]   24 The crown of the wise [is] their riches: [but] the foolishness of fools [is] folly. [jfb] [jwc]   25 A true witness delivereth souls: but a deceitful [witness] speaketh lies. [jfb] [jwc]   26 In the fear of the LORD [is] strong confidence: and his children shall have a place of refuge. [jfb]   27 The fear of the LORD [is] a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death. [jfb] [jwc]   28 In the multitude of people [is] the king’s honour: but in the want of people [is] the destruction of the prince. [gsn] [jfb]   29 [He that is] slow to wrath [is] of great understanding: but [he that is] hasty of spirit exalteth folly. [jfb] [jwc]   30 A sound heart [is] the life of the flesh: but envy the rottenness of the bones. [jfb] [jwc]   31 He that oppresseth the poor reproacheth his Maker: but he that honoureth him hath mercy on the poor. [jfb] [jwc]   32 The wicked is driven away in his wickedness: but the righteous hath hope in his death. [jfb] [jwc]   33 Wisdom resteth in the heart of him that hath understanding: but [that which is] in the midst of fools is made known. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   34 Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin [is] a reproach to any people. [jfb]   35 The king’s favour [is] toward a wise servant: but his wrath is [against] him that causeth shame.
