what we believe
We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ.
We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, and that Jesus voluntarily paid for our sin by dying on the cross as our substitute. This accomplished salvation for all who will trust in Christ alone and receive the free gift of eternal life.
We believe in His bodily resurrection.
We believe in His imminent pre-millennial return to earth. We believe in the Trinity of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. These three are one in essence but distinct in person and function.
We believe that God created man in His image, but man chose sinfulness and fell from grace. As a result, all men are sinners and must accept God's grace through Jesus Christ to be saved. We believe that lost people matter to God, and therefore, ought to matter to the church.
We believe in an eternal heaven for the saved and an eternal hell for the lost.
We believe that every Christian should tithe (ten percent) on their income to the Lord through the local church. Tithing on your time, talent, and tithes ought to be given back to God as an act of dedication and love to Jesus Christ. Giving to missions at home and around the world should be given above your tithes.
We believe that a church is a local assembly of baptized believers, under the discipline of the Word of God; organized to carry out the Great Commission to evangelize, to teach, and to administer the ordinances of believer's baptism and the Lord's Supper.
We believe that membership is a door of opportunity and a commitment to unity. Your attendance and involvement is essential. The discovery, development, and deployment of your spiritual gifts are necessary to build a healthy body of Christ. The pursuit of full devotion to Christ and His cause is normal for every believer.
How can I be saved?
JESUS IS MORE THAN JUST A MAN.
Jesus said He was God. He proved it by His life, His words, His deeds, and His perfect love. “But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)” (Ephesians 2:4–5). “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).
HE DIED FOR YOU.
Our sin separates us from God, relationally and eternally, and requires the payment of eternal death (Romans 3:23, 6:23). Yet, because Jesus died for you, God’s justice is satisfied, and your sin can be forever forgiven. You can be rescued, pardoned, and accepted into God’s grace and love by personally receiving what Jesus did on the cross. “…Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day…” (1 Corinthians 15:3–4). “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).
HE CAME TO SAVE YOU.
Here’s how Jesus said it: “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life…” (John 3:36). “…I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live” (John 11:25). An eternal home in Heaven and a personal relationship with God can only be received, never achieved. You can’t save yourself, but you can receive salvation as an unspeakable gift from God Himself. He loves you that much!
HE CAN SAVE YOU RIGHT NOW.
Knowing you have a relationship with God and a home in Heaven isn’t about being good or religious. It’s about trust—faith. Everyone is trusting something as an “ultimate thing.” The message of the Bible is that Jesus is the only source of ultimate and eternal hope—forgiveness and pardon from sin, acceptance and adoption into God’s family, and the promise of eternal life in Heaven. It happens the moment you call out to Jesus and ask Him to be your Saviour. In that moment, He will forgive your sin and give you His gift of eternal life. “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Romans 10:13).
