What We Believe/Salvation/Church

What We Believe

One God, in three, Father, Son and Holy Spirit

The Scriptures of both the Old and New Testament were divinely inspired and written by man. In its original writing it is inerrant and the final authority in matters of faith and life.

God the Son, became flesh in the person of Jesus Christ, who was begotten by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, Jesus was fully God and Man.

Jesus died on the cross for our sins as a substitutionary sacrifice. All who believe in Jesus are Justified by Grace through faith and not by any kind of works.

Salvation is not earned but is a Free Gift to everyone who chooses to acknowledge Jesus Christ as Lord.

In the resurrection of the crucified body of the Lord Jesus Christ, in His ascension to Heaven and in His present life as High Priest, Intercessor and Advocate.

Jesus Christ ordained water baptism and the observance of the Lord’s Supper.

Jesus Christ will return.
