DOCTRINAL STATEMENT

  1. The Bible is inspired of God, inerrant, and the final authority in all matters of faith and practice. (II Timothy 3:16)There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Deut. 6:4; John 1:1)
  2. The Lord Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man, was born of a virgin and is perfectly sinless.  He died for our sins, was bodily resurrected from the grave by God the Father, and has ascended into Heaven interceding for us as our eternal High Priest at the Father’s right hand.  (Phil. 2:5-8; Matt. 1:18; II Cor. 5:21; Matt. 28:5-7; Acts 1:9; Heb 3:1, 4:14-16, 5:5-9; Mark 16:19)
  3. Each member of the human race is fallen, sinful, and lost.  Redemption is wholly by the blood of Christ, and salvation is by grace, through faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit indwells the believer upon conversion and thus empowers a godly life. (Rom. 3:23; Eph. 1:7; Rom 5:9; Eph. 2:8-9; Eph. 1:13-14)
  4. There are two Christian ordinances, baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Baptism by immersion identifies the Believer with Christ in death, burial, and resurrection.  The Lord’s Supper is a memorial feast, instituted by the Lord Himself exclusively for His own. (Acts 8:26-38; Matt. 28:19; I Cor. 11:23-26)
  5. The Church began with the descent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost and is composed of all true believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, with each local group led by a plurality of Elders.  Our hope is the personal, imminent return of the Lord Jesus Christ. (Acts 2:1- 42; Acts 20:28; I Tim. 3:1-7; Titus 1:5-9; I Peter 5:1-3; I Thess. 4:13-18; Rev. 22:20)

The Lord's Supper

On the night on which He was betrayed, the Lord Jesus instituted the Lord’s Supper with His disciples. He did so on the night of the Passover feast, anticipating His coming sacrifice as the true Lamb of God. As He passed the bread and cup to His disciples, He commanded “This do in remembrance of Me.” (Luke 22:19)

Prayer Meeting

We believe that gath­er­ing together in cor­po­rate prayer is of utmost impor­tance for believ­ers in a local church and that an effec­tive prece­dent was set by the early church as they con­tin­u­ally devoted them­selves to prayer (Acts 2:42).
