A Christ Centered, Caring Church
What We Believe

We believe in the following truths:
  • Christ established the church.   He is its head and gave the church His promise of perpetuity and blessing.
    Matthew 16:13-20, Colossians 1:15-18

  • Salvation is given by God in grace apart from human works and merit.   It is received by man through repentance and faith.   Salvation is not just an assent of the mind but must be from the heart.
    Ephesians 2:8-10, Romans 10:9-15

  • The Bible is God's inspired word.  It is "truth without any mixture of error".   The Bible teaches us about God and His will for us.
    II Peter 1:20-21, II Timothy 3:16-17
