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.


  • Psalm 77 
In the Day of Trouble I Seek the Lord
To the choirmaster: according to Jeduthun. A Psalm of Asaph.
77 I cry aloud to God,  aloud to God, and he will hear me.
2 In the day of my trouble I seek the Lord;  in the night my hand is stretched out without wearying;  my soul refuses to be comforted.
3 When I remember God, I moan;  when I meditate, my spirit faints. Selah

4 You hold my eyelids open;  I am so troubled that I cannot speak.
5 I consider the days of old,  the years long ago.
6 I said, “Let me remember my song in the night;  let me meditate in my heart.” Then my spirit made a diligent search:
7 “Will the Lord spurn forever,  and never again be favorable?
8 Has his steadfast love forever ceased?  Are his promises at an end for all time?
9 Has God forgotten to be gracious?  Has he in anger shut up his compassion?” Selah

10 Then I said, “I will appeal to this,  to the years of the right hand of the Most High.” 11 I will remember the deeds of the Lord;  yes, I will remember your wonders of old.
12 I will ponder all your work,  and meditate on your mighty deeds.
13 Your way, O God, is holy.  What god is great like our God?
14 You are the God who works wonders;  you have made known your might among the peoples.
15 You with your arm redeemed your people,  the children of Jacob and Joseph. Selah

16 When the waters saw you, O God,  when the waters saw you, they were afraid;  indeed, the deep trembled.
17 The clouds poured out water;  the skies gave forth thunder;  your arrows flashed on every side.
18 The crash of your thunder was in the whirlwind;  your lightnings lighted up the world;  the earth trembled and shook.
19 Your way was through the sea,  your path through the great waters;  yet your footprints were unseen.
20 You led your people like a flock  by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
