our core beliefs

We believe in the Trinity: The Father, The Son, and the Holy Spirit all existing in One. All being equal and all being God.

We believe that we are all sinners, all in need of a Savior, and Jesus was and is the propitiation, the substitute, for our sins.

We believe there is a hell. Jesus Christ, believing in Jesus Christ, is the only way to escape the torment of hell. By believing we mean that if one believes in Christ, then he picks up his cross daily, he is a new creation, old things have passed away and all things become new. This results in our becoming more like Jesus. 

We believe in the Holy Bible being the true inspired Word of God. It is incapable of error, and no error exists in it. It was written through men by the Holy Spirit working through them. There are no other Holy Scriptures.

We believe the fullness of God, the Holy Spirit, resides in us the very moment that we accept Christ into our lives. The same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead resides in us.

We believe that only those who accept Christ are our brothers and sisters, however, everyone else is our neighbor and we are to love our neighbors as ourselves.

We believe the sacraments ordained by God for His followers are to receive communion, which we do monthly, baptism which we do yearly, and marriage which is between a man and a woman. We believe that water baptism isn't necessary for salvation, but very important in one's committment to Christ. 

Accountability. We are accountable for our actions, and we can't use the excuse "the devil made me do it"! We are not perfect, but should be quick to repent, quick to forgive, and quick to love.
