Confession of Faith

GROWING disciples who MAKE disciples.

What We Believe

We believe that the Bible is “given inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, and for instruction in righteousness.”  The Bible is inerrant, infallible and inspired Word of God and is our sole authority for faith and practice.

We believe one true living God revealed in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and without division of nature, essence or being.  He is the Creator, Redeemer, Preserver, and Ruler of the universe.

We believe that God has revealed Himself to us through His Son.  In His incarnation as Jesus Christ, He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.  He completely fulfilled the law of God as man and was temped like man, yet without sin.  He voluntarily died for the sins of man on a cross at Calvary and was buried in a tomb.  He was victoriously resurrected from the grave with a glorified body. He appeared to His disciples and ascended to the Right Hand of the Father.  He will return visibly to earth.

We believe that man was created by God from the dust of the ground and that God breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and that man became a living being.  By his free choice, man sinned against God and brought sin into the human race.  Unregenerated man is a sinner by nature and by choice.  The wages of sin is death.

We believe that a person is saved by God’s grace through faith, and not of works, lest anyone should boast.  At the moment of faith, the believer is sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise until the day of redemption.  Therefore, the believer is eternally secure in Christ Jesus.  At the Second Coming of Christ, the believer will receive a glorified body like that of Christ.  Each believer is a priest before God and has Jesus Christ as his intercessor before the Father.

We believe that a New Testament Church is a local body of baptized believers who are associated by covenant in the faith and fellowship of the gospel, observing the two ordinances of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper, committed to His teachings, exercising the gifts, rights, and privileges invested in them by His Word, and seeking to extend the gospel to the end of the earth.

We practice believer’s baptism by immersion in water because a believer’s sins have been forgiven by the blood of Jesus Christ.  We observe the Lord’s Supper, with the fruit of the vine and bread, in remembrance of Christ’s death until he returns to earth.

We believe that God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male or female.  Therefore we believe the term ‘marriage’ has only one meaning: A one flesh union instituted of God where a man and a woman live in a covenant relationship for life that pictures the relationship that Christ has with His Bride, the Church. The man, as the husband, in the covenant relationship pictures Christ and His love for the church. The woman, as the wife, in the covenant relationship pictures the Church and her submission to Christ.

  • Mark 11:1-11 
The Triumphal Entry
11 Now when they drew near to Jerusalem, to Bethphage and Bethany, at the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two of his disciples 2 and said to them, “Go into the village in front of you, and immediately as you enter it you will find a colt tied, on which no one has ever sat. Untie it and bring it. 3 If anyone says to you, ‘Why are you doing this?’ say, ‘The Lord has need of it and will send it back here immediately.’” 4 And they went away and found a colt tied at a door outside in the street, and they untied it. 5 And some of those standing there said to them, “What are you doing, untying the colt?” 6 And they told them what Jesus had said, and they let them go. 7 And they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their cloaks on it, and he sat on it. 8 And many spread their cloaks on the road, and others spread leafy branches that they had cut from the fields.9 And those who went before and those who followed were shouting, “Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! 10 Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David! Hosanna in the highest!” 11 And he entered Jerusalem and went into the temple. And when he had looked around at everything, as it was already late, he went out to Bethany with the twelve.

Jesus Heals Blind Bartimaeus
46 And they came to Jericho. And as he was leaving Jericho with his disciples and a great crowd, Bartimaeus, a blind beggar, the son of Timaeus, was sitting by the roadside. 47 And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out and say, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” 48 And many rebuked him, telling him to be silent. But he cried out all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” 49 And Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.” And they called the blind man, saying to him, “Take heart. Get up; he is calling you.” 50 And throwing off his cloak, he sprang up and came to Jesus. 51 And Jesus said to him, “What do you want me to do for you?” And the blind man said to him, “Rabbi, let me recover my sight.” 52 And Jesus said to him, “Go your way; your faith has made you well.” And immediately he recovered his sight and followed him on the way.
