Someone once said, “In essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; in all things, love.” We like that. There are certain non-negotiables we’re committed to as Christ-followers. Beyond that, there are many non-essentials to our faith, with freedom for varying interpretations of the Scriptures. Yet, whether we’re defending the essentials or working through the non-essentials, we’re committed to an attitude of love.

We believe…

  1. in the historic Christian faith as revealed in the Scripture and practiced by the early Christian church.
  2. that the Bible is verbally inspired by God and inerrant in the original writing.
  3. that the Bible reveals the ruin of man by sin and his redemption through the atoning death of the Lord Jesus Christ.
  4. in the virgin birth of Christ, His sinless life, substitutionary death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven and future return to earth to establish His kingdom.
  5. in the One church, the body of Christ, whose members are united to Him, the Head in heaven, by virtue of their faith in the Savior.
  6. that the local church is God’s unique provision for His people, who gather for the purpose of worship, prayer, teaching, preaching, fellowship, and evangelism.
  7. that every Christian is a member of the body of Christ, which is the one true church, and that every believer should commit to fellowship and service with a local church.
