We Believe

  • God allowed Jesus Christ, His only Son, to come to earth to redeem from sin those who choose to serve him.  Jesus is the only source of salvation, and is the perfect model of how we should live.


  • The Holy Spirit is a part of God which is given to believers at baptism, to guide and strengthen the believer.Salvation is the forgiveness of sins through Jesus Christ, in faith, grace and baptism.

  • Heaven is the eternal inheritance in God’s presence that is promised to Jesus Christ’s followers.


  • ​Prayer is our avenue of communication with God for the purpose of praise, petition, thanksgiving, admitting sin, and asking forgiveness.

  • The Bible is the complete and only written word of God that provides our guide for living and salvation.
