About the Godhead We believe that the Triune God exists eternally and equally in three persons: God the Father; God the Son; and God the Holy Spirit.

About Jesus We believe that Jesus Christ was miraculously conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin. We believe that Jesus was fully human and fully divine. We believe that Jesus lived a sinless and perfect life. We believe that Jesus suffered and died for the redemption of all humanity and that He was dead for three days. We believe that after three days Jesus resurrected from death and He ascended into heaven where He sits at the Father’s right hand.

About the Holy Spirit We believe that the Holy Spirit affects those who believe and do not believe. We believe the Holy Spirit gives direction to and lives in those who have faith in the Triune God. We also believe the Holy Spirit convicts the world of sin, righteousness and judgment.

About the Scriptures We believe the Scriptures to be fully inspired by God, without mistakes. We believe the Scriptures are the basis for faith and the authority for life. As a result we are devoted to studying, teaching and obeying Scripture and encourage everyone to participate in daily Bible reading.

About Baptism We believe in baptism by immersion for the forgiveness of sins and to receive the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. We believe baptism is an obedient response to faith in Christ through which the believer identifies himself or herself with Christ.

About the Lord’s Supper We believe the Lord’s Supper is a time to remember Jesus’ death, which allows for our redemption and salvation. We choose to honor this memory by participating in the Lord’s Supper every Sunday in our time of congregational worship.

About the Church We believe that the Church is beloved of Christ and is chosen to carry on Jesus’ ministry as part of the Kingdom of God.

About Unity We believe that Christ calls us to unity. We believe that God’s kingdom is much further reaching than our local church or denominational ties. Because we believe in unity, we choose to partner with other individuals and churches throughout our community and the world because what we have in common with them (Jesus Christ) is far greater than any differences of our opinion.
