Vision Statement

Our vision is to develop within us, as a congregation, the relationships that will
invite others to join us in our walk with the Lord.  As the Lord provides:

Our mission outreach will be effective in helping those who are giving
their lives and talents to the ministry of the gospel.

Our tithes, offerings, and talents will be used to minister to the needs of the
community and our world, as well as meeting the needs of our church family.

We will study the Word of God and teach it in such a way
that it is clear to all that hear.

We will live our lives so that the world will see that we love Jesus
and each other.

Our church facility will be available for use by our community.

Core Beliefs

We believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New testaments to be
the verbally inspired Word of God, the final authority for faith and life,
Infallible and God-breathed.  

We believe in the Triune God, eternally existing in three persons -
Father, Son and Holy Spirit; equal in being, power and glory,
identical in nature and having the same attributes and perfections.  

We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God.  
We believe He became man, without ceasing to be God,
was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary
in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful men.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption
through His death on the cross and that our justification is made sure
by His literal physical resurrection from the dead.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ ascended into heaven
and is now exalted at the right hand of God, where, as our High Priest,
he becomes our Representative, Intercessor, and Advocate.

We believe the Holy Spirit is a person who convicts the world of sin,
of righteousness and of judgment; and that He is the
Supernatural Agent in regeneration, baptizing all believers
into the body of Christ, indwelling and sealing them
unto the day of redemption.  We believe that He is the Divine Teacher
who guides believers into all truth, and that it is the privilege and duty
of all the saved to be filled with the Spirit.

We believe that salvation is the gift of God brought to man by grace
and received by a personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ,
whose precious blood was shed on Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins.

We believe every saved person possesses two natures,
with provision made for victory of the new nature over the old nature
through the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit.

We believe that God is sovereign in the bestowing of all His gifts.  
We believe that God does hear the prayer of faith and answers
in accordance with His own will.

We believe that the church, which is the body and espoused bride of Christ,
is a spiritual organism made up of all born-again persons of this present age.  
We believe that the establishment and continuance of local churches
is clearly taught and defined in the New Testament Scriptures.

We believe in the “Blessed Hope,” the personal imminent coming
of the Lord Jesus Christ for His redeemed ones,
and in His subsequent return to earth with His saints
to establish His Millennial Kingdom.

We believe in the bodily resurrection of all people, the saved to eternal life,
and the unsaved to judgment and everlasting punishment.
