We believe the Scriptures as originally given and that they are perfectly and uniquely authoritative in all matters with which they deal, including scientific and historical as well as moral and theological (2 Timothy 3:16; 1 Corinthians 2:13).
"Question everything taught here today."
We claim to be "Honest Seekers of Truth." As a result we want to have dialogue about what we believe and what happens during our worship service. We know from experience that we are capable of being wrong and not knowing it. So we are not afraid to seek truth since we are not bound to any human traditions. We also accept that our sincerity cannot determine truth. We believe Jesus when he said, "If you continue in My Word, then you are truly my disciples; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free." (John 8:31-32)
We believe in the Eternal Godhead who has revealed Himself as ONE God existing in THREE persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; distinguishable but inseparable. (Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14)
The Lord Jesus Christ
We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Savior of all people, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, both fully God and fully man. (Luke 1:26-35; John 1:18; Isaiah 7:14)
Christ’s Death and Resurrection
We believe Christ died for our sins, was buried and rose again on the third day and personally appeared to His disciples and to many. (1 Corinthians 15:14; Romans 4:25)
Salvation by Grace Through Faith
We believe in the salvation of sinners by grace, through repentance and faith in the perfect and sufficient work of the cross of Calvary by which we obtain remission of sins. (Ephesians 2:8-9; Hebrews 9:12, 22; Romans 5:11)
We believe in the necessity of water baptism by immersion in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in order to fulfill the command of Christ as modeled by the First Century Christians (Matthew 28;19; Acts 2:37-39; 19:1-6)
We believe that the local gathering of believers, known as the church, is Christ’s body meant to impact the world with the message of Jesus. We are an autonomous congregation, not governed by any other organization. Its primary function is to share life together, which includes encouraging one another, helping each other grow in Spirit and Truth, serving our community and worshipping regularly. (Acts 2:42-47)
We believe in a Spirit-filled life that empowers us to live counter-culturally while interacting within our culture. We strive to live holy lives as an expression of Christian faith. (Romans 8:9; 2 Corinthians 1:21-22; 2 Corinthians 7:1)
A Capella Style Worship
We choose to model the worship style of the early Christians who worshiped without instruments for over 600 years. The unique nature of this style of worship is incredibly personal and powerful in its simplicity. (Ephesians 5:19)
We believe in the regular observance of Communion, commonly called the Lord’s Supper, as an expression of worship. (1 Corinthians 11:28-32)
WHAT IS THE BIBLE PLAN OF SALVATION?
1. YOU MUST HEAR THE GOSPEL
(Acts 11:14) Who shall tell thee words, whereby thou and all thy house shall be saved.
2. YOU MUST BELIEVE THAT JESUS IS THE SON OF GOD
(John 8:24) I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.
(Acts 4:10, 12) Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. (12) Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
3. YOU MUST REPENT AND TURN AWAY FROM YOUR SINS
(Luke 13:3, 5) I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
4. YOU MUST PUBLICLY CONFESS THAT JESUS IS THE CHRIST, THE SON OF GOD
(Romans 10:9-10) That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
5. YOU MUST BE BAPTIZED FOR THE REMISSION OF YOUR SINS
(Acts 2:38) Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
6. YOU MUST LIVE YOUR LIFE FAITHFULLY TO THE LORD UNTIL THE END
(Matthew 24:13) But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
