Doctrinal Beliefs

For a full explanation of our church’s theology and doctrine, please click on The Westminster Confession of Faith. A summary of our beliefs are stated below.

We believe the Bible is the inspired and inerrant Word of God, the only infallible rule of faith and practice.

We believe there is one God, eternal and self-existing in three persons Father, Son and Holy Spirit) who are to be equally loved, honored, and adored.

We believe all mankind participated in Adam’s fall from his original sinless state and is thus lost in sin and totally helpless to save himself.

We believe the Sovereign God, for no other reason than His own unfathomable love and mercy, has chosen lost sinners from every nation to be redeemed by the quickening power of the Holy Spirit and through the atoning death and resurrection of His son, Jesus Christ.

We believe those sinners whom the Spirit quickens, are born again to eternal life, come to believe in Christ as Savior by the Word of God, become sons of God, and will persevere to the end.

We believe justification is by faith alone, and through it the undeserving sinner is clothed with the righteousness of Jesus Christ.

We believe the goal of God’s salvation in the life of the Christian is the glory of God as we are conformed to the likeness of Jesus Christ.

We believe at death the Christian’s soul passes immediately into the presence of God and the unbeliever’s soul is eternally separated from God unto condemnation in hell.

We believe baptism is a sign of God’s covenant of grace and is properly administered to those who come as adults to trust in Christ, and to the children of believers in their infancy.

We believe Jesus Christ will return to earth, visibly and bodily, at a time when He is not expected, to consummate history and the eternal plan of God.

We believe the Gospel of God’s salvation in Jesus Christ must be proclaimed to all nations before Jesus Christ returns.
