THE TRINITY

We believe in the Trinity, that God is three: Father, Son and Holy Spirit who are one. 2 Corinthians 13:14

The Fall of Man

We believe that all people were created in the image of God, but that by voluntary disobedience fell from perfection. Proverbs 5:12

The Plan of Salvation

We believe that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us, offering forgiveness to all who believe on Him. John 3:16, Romans 5:6

Salvation through Grace

We believe that salvation is not a result of our efforts, but is the free gift of God. Ephesians 2:8-9

Daily Christian Life

We believe that God desires every believer to live for Him daily. Hebrews 6:1, Galatians 2:20

Baptism & Communion

We believe that baptism is an outward sign of an inward work and is encouraged by Christ as a public statement of faith. We believe in the commemoration of the Lord’s Supper by the use of bread and juice of the vine. Matthew 28:19, 1 Corinthians 11:24-25
