Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
We believe that the Bible is sufficient for all matters pertaining to a life of righteousness and Godliness. It is our primary source for teaching, reproof, correcting, and training.
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return to power and glory.
We believe that salvation is a gift of grace to be received and not something that can be earned by the works of man.
We believe that salvation (the forgiveness of sins) and new life comes to a person who acknowledges that:
- They are sinful before a Holy God.
- They cannot do anything to earn, merit or deserve salvation.
- Jesus Christ is fully God.
- He paid the price for sin in His sacrificial death on the cross.
- He rose again victorious.
- And that believing these things put their faith in Him alone.
We believe that a regenerate person will bear spiritual fruit in his life as a result of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the resurrection of the saved unto the resurrection of life.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly victorious life.
Unity of Believers
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

By Jeremy Stalnecker What is freedom, to you? I think most of us would define freedom or “being free” as having the ability to do what we want to do. I am only free, we might say if there are no limitations on my rights and if I can, without hurting others of course,...Read More
By Jeremy Stalnecker Several events this week reminded me of something that I have always known to be true. It’s funny how we can learn something and then forget we know it until, for some reason, it once again comes to our attention. What was that “thing” for me...Read More
By Mike Sanders Even though the conversation was 14 years ago, I remember it like it was yesterday. I guess the intensity of the moment, and the love and respect I had for the person I was speaking with, is what makes the memory seem so near and dear. At the time, I...Read More
