We think these are essential beliefs. That is, in order to be in alignment with one another as a church body a person must agree with these essential beliefs.

We Believe…

1. The Bible is God’s word to us and is to be the final authority in all matters of faith and practice. 2 Timothy 3:16-17. 2 Peter 1:19-21.

2. God exists as God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, that the Three are separate, equal yet one. Genesis 1:1-2, Colossians 1:15-20, John 14:15-25.

3. Jesus is the only way for man to be saved. John 14:6, Acts 4:12.

4. Salvation is by grace not works. Ephesians 2:8-9, John 6:44.

5. People will exist for all eternity, either in Heaven or Hell. Ecclesiastes 3:11, Revelation 20:14-15.
