We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God and that the study of His Word helps us grow in our understanding of God and become closer to Him. We glorify God through joyful song, prayer, giving, fellowship and meaningful worship and service to Him. “Time With The Children” is part of our regular morning worship service. After the children’s sermon children 4 years old through fourth grade are invited to attend Children’s Church, an adult-led learning experience. We provide nursery care for children 3 years old and younger.
*** The Holy Bible ***
We believe and confess the canonical Scriptures of the holy prophets of both Testaments to be the true Word of God, and to have sufficient authority of themselves, not of men. For God himself spoke to the fathers, prophets, apostles, and still speaks to us through the Holy Scriptures.
And in this Holy Scripture, the universal Church of Christ has the most complete exposition of all that pertains to a saving faith, and also to the framing of a life acceptable to God; and in this respect it is expressly commanded by God that nothing be either added to or taken from the same.
The Bible is the most authoritative source for faith and practice for all people.
*** The Trinity ***
We believe and teach that the same immense, one and indivisible God is in person inseparably and without confusion distinguished as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Thus there are not three gods, but three persons, consubstantial, coeternal, and coequal. For according to the nature or essence they are so joined together that they are one God, and the divine nature is common to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
*** Jesus Christ ***
We believe in Jesus Christ, Son of God and Son of man, the gift of the Father’s unfailing grace, the ground of our hope, and the promise of our deliverance from sin and death. He was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; he descended into hell; the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty.
*** Holy Spirit ***
We believe in the Holy Spirit; the Lord and Giver of Life; who proceedeth from the Father and the Son; who with the Father and the Son together is worshiped and glorified; who spoke by the prophets.
We believe in the Holy Spirit as the divine presence in our lives, whereby we are kept in perpetual remembrance of the truth of Christ, and find strength and help in time of need.
*** The Church ***
The Church universal consists of all persons in every nation, together with their children, who profess faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and commit themselves to live in a fellowship under his rule.
The unity of the Church is a gift of its Lord and finds expression in its faithfulness to the mission to which Christ calls it. The Church is a fellowship of believers which seeks the enlargement of the circle of faith to include all people.
There is one Church. As the Bible speaks of the one body which is the Church living under the one Spirit of God known through Christ, it reminds us that we have “one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of us all.”
*** Return of Christ and God’s Triumph ***
As Christ came once in humility, he will return in glory for the final judgment and for the consummation of his universal Kingdom. The work and promises of Jesus Christ give assurance that the age-long struggle between sin and grace will in God’s good time have an end; all the power of evil will be destroyed, and God’s holy, wise, and loving purposes will be accomplished.
