What We Believe

For our Church Constitution, click here.

We believe...

  • The Bible to be the inspired Word of God, complete and without error in the original autographs.
  • In one God, existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, co-equal in every way.
  • Jesus Christ was born of a virgin, that He was divine and sinless; that He died vicariously, atoning for our sins; that He rose bodily, ascended to heaven, and is imminently and personally coming again.
  • The divine Holy Spirit convicts, convinces, and converts the believer, and that He seals, indwells, fills, motivates, teaches, and comforts the believer.
  • God created man in a sinless state, but man fell when he chose to disobey God.  As a consequence, every man is born a sinner by nature and is totally depraved, unable to save himself from hell.  Only by faith alone in the shed blood of Christ, can man find forgiveness of sin and a home in heaven.
  • The local church to be independent and autonomous; we practice two ordinances: Believer's Baptism by immersion (see below for more on Believer's Baptism) and the Lord's Table.

A Gift For You

Am I going to heaven when I die? 

God says in the Bible that in order to go to heaven you must be born again or "saved" (John 3:7). 

Why must I be saved? 

God created man to be perfect, but Adam, the first man, sinned. As a result, all of his descendants are sinners by nature as well as by choice. Sin is any word, thought, or deed that falls short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). 

The punishment, or wages, for sin is death (Romans 6:23) or eternal separation from God. This means that of our own merit, we don’t deserve heaven; we deserve eternal separation from God in hell. 

"And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgement." (Hebrews 9:27) We each get one chance to live, and then we all will die. What happens to you after death will depend on whether you were saved from your sinful nature. 

How do I get saved? 

The Apostle Paul answered this question with this statement: "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved." (Acts 16:31). 

Jesus Christ is God’s Son. He took the form of a man so He could die on the cross and pay the penalty for our sin—death. But Jesus did not stay dead (I Corinthians 15:3-4). Jesus conquered death and sin when He rose again three days after He was crucified. 

When we place our hope of heaven in Christ’s payment for sin, we become saved. John 3:16 says, "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." This means if we believe in Him, we are both saved from hell and sent to heaven.

Watch this video to see what the Bad News/Good News is about you and God:

God was willing to send His Son because of His love for us. (Romans 5:8) The best way to show our love for Him is to accept His Son, as our Savior from sin. You can do this through a simple prayer acknowledging you are a sinner and the only way to heaven is through Jesus Christ. This is the greatest GIFT you could ever receive. 

What if I still have questions? 

You can find out more about God and His plan for you by reading His Word (the Bible), attending His church, or talking to His children (others who have already received this gift).

Believer's Baptism

For Believers

The Bible teaches that only those that have trusted Christ as Savior should be baptized (Acts 2:41, 8:12, 18:8). This means that you have admitted that you are a sinner, that Jesus Christ died for your sin and rose again on the third day. The only way for you to be saved is by placing your trust in Christ’s work on the cross. (Acts 16:31).

A Step of Obedience

Christ commanded us to make disciples and baptize them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19). Jesus Christ set the example for all believers when He was baptized in the Jordan River.

By Immersion

The word baptize means to immerse. This is a way of publicly identifying yourself with Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection. Biblical examples of baptism were done in the water (Matthew 3:16; Acts 8:38).

If you have not followed Christ’s example in Believer’s Baptism by immersion, contact a Bible-believing church about taking this important step and making a public profession of your faith in Christ.
