What we believe:

We believe…  that the Bible is the Word of God without error, the sole authority for life. That there is one God, manifest in three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. That Jesus is the Son of God, was born of a virgin, was wholly God and wholly man, lived a sinless life, died as a substitutionary sacrifice for the sin of mankind, was buried, arose bodily from the grave and ascended into Heaven and we believe in the literal, imminent return of Jesus Christ to earth. We believe that man is a special creation of God, made in His image;  and that mankind fell through the sin of the first man, Adam, and that all men are sinners in need of salvation. Salvation is a gift given through repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and that every person who truly is saved is eternally secure in the Lord Jesus Christ. Also, persons who die in their sins will spend eternity in Hell and those persons who die with their sins forgiven will spend eternity in Heaven. We believe that the church is a local body of baptized believers with the Lord Jesus Christ as the Head.
