We are a Christ centered, Bible Teaching and Bible
believing church.
(Matthew 6:33; John 5:39; 2nd Timothy 2:15)
We believe in the inspiration, inerrancy and preservation of God's Word, the Bible. (2nd Timothy 3:16; 2nd Peter 1:21)

  • We believe in the blood atonement of Christ as the ONLY sacrifice man's sin. (1st John 1:7b)

  • We believe that Salvation is by grace through faith alone plus and minus nothing from works, goodness, or religion. (Ephsians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5)

  • We believe in the glorious resurrection of Christ from the grave in bodily form, declaring Him to be the Son of God with power over death and the grave. (Matthew 28:18; 1st Corinthians 15:3-4)

  • We believe in water baptism; and that immersion into water is an act of obedience to Christ NOT required for salvation. (Mark 16:16)

  • We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ being both 100% God and 100% Man. (John 1:1; 13-14)

  • We believe in the Person and Work of the Holy Spirit and that HE indwells (lives) within the saints and empowers the saints. (John 14:26; Acts 1:8; 1st Corinthians 6:19)

  • We believe in the one eternal and infinite God of creation who has revealed Himself as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19; 1st Peter 1:2; 1st Corinthians 2:13)

  • We believe in the bibical authority of the Pastor-Teacher as the biblical expositor, under-sheperd and overseer of this local church. (Acts 20:28-30; Hebrews 13:7;
       Ephesians 4:11-12; Jeremiah 3:15)

  • We believe in the Biblical Principles of Stewardship which includes the giving of Tithes and Offerings as a means of supporting both the MINISTER and the MINISTRY. (Leviticus 27:30; Numbers 18; Malachi 3:6-12; 1st Corinthians 9:1-14; Galatians 6:6) - we do not believe in selling as a means of support for God's Church.

  • We will not tolerate or allow anyone or any group of persons to teach or infiltrate the Body of Christ by means of unsound doctorines that are not rightly interpreted through the means of proper biblical hermeneutics. (Titus 1:9-13; 2nd Peter 2 & 3)
