They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of His splendor.

Isaiah 61:3 (NIV)

Our Beliefs

Essential truths… they don’t change. These beliefs and this statement of faith are at the core of who we are as a family.

Jesus Christ is the one and only Son of God, who died for our sins and arose from the dead.
(1 Corinthians 15: 1-8; John 3:16)

The Bible is the inspired word of God – a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path.
(2 Timothy 3:16; Psalm 119:105)

Every person has worth as a creation of God, but all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
(Romans 3:23)

Forgiveness of sins and the promise of eternal life are available to those who trust Christ as Savior and Lord.
(John 3:16)

Those accepting Christ should repent of sin, confess their faith, and be baptized in Him.
(Romans 10:9; Acts 2:38)

The Church is the body of Christ on earth, empowered by the Holy Spirit to evangelize the lost and edify the saved.
(Ephesians 4:1-16)

Jesus Christ will one day return to earth and reign forever as King of kings and Lord of lords.
(Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)

Statement Of Faith

God has given us His Word, and we hold fast to it.  These core tenets and principles are central to our faith.

We believe in one God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  (Matthew 5:16456:1489James 1:17John 1:114:9Genesis 1:2Luke 1:26-38)

We believe in the Son, Jesus Christ, truly God and fully human:

We believe in the Holy Spirit, Who is an active and operative part of the triune God, and Who indwells every Christian.  (John 16:5-15Acts 1:7-8Romans 8:26-271 Corinthians 3:166:192 Timothy 1:14)

We believe in the Bible as God’s Holy Word.  We believe God inspired the autographs (original writings) of the Scripture and those autographs were consequently without error.  (Mark 12:36John 14:2616:12-15Acts 1:161 Corinthians 2:12-132 Timothy 3:14-162 Peter 1:20-21)

We accept the Bible as the final authority for all matters of faith and practice.  (Isaiah 40:8Matthew 5:1824:35Romans 15:4Hebrews 4:12)

We believe the Bible teaches that man, created by God, willfully sinned against God and is consequently lost and without hope apart from Jesus Christ.  (Acts 4:12Romans 3:23)

We believe the Bible teaches that salvation and the forgiveness of sins is achieved only by grace through the blood of Jesus Christ.  (Matthew 26:28Romans 5:9Ephesians 2:8-9; 1 Peter 1:18-191 John 1:7)

We believe the Bible teaches that one receives God’s grace by putting faith in Christ, repenting of sin, confessing Christ, and being baptized into Christ, but that none of these is sufficient in and of itself for the assurance of salvation.  (Romans 5:1-2Luke 24:45-47Acts 3:1917:302 Peter 3:9Matthew 10:32Romans 10:9Philippians 2:111 John 4:15Acts 2:38Romans 6:1-7Galatians 3:27Colossians 2:121 Peter 3:21)

We believe in the Church of Jesus Christ, founded on the Day of Pentecost and consisting of all Christians everywhere.  (Matthew 16:13-18Acts 2:14-47)

We believe the Bible teaches that the Elders are to exercise authority over the local congregation.  (Acts 20:28Philippians 1:11 Timothy 3:1-7Titus 1:5-91 Peter 5:1-4)

We believe that God has established marriage as a lifelong, exclusive relationship between one man and one woman. (Gen. 2:24-25; Ex. 20:14, 17; Ex. 22:19; Lev. 18:22-23, 20:13, 15, 16; Matt. 19:4-6, 9; Rom. 1:18-31; I Cor. 6:9-10, 15-20; I Tim 1:8-11; Jude 7).

We believe that God created the human race male and female.  (Gen 1:27; Deut. 22:5).

We believe that all human life, from conception to death, is sacred and created by God in His image.. (Ps 139.)

We believe that every person must be afforded compassion, love, kindness, respect, and dignity. (Mark 12:28-31; Luke 6:31.).

This Statement of Faith does not exhaust the extent of our beliefs. The Bible itself, as the inspired and infallible Word of God that speaks with final authority concerning truth, morality, and the proper conduct of mankind, is the sole and final source of all that we believe.  For purposes of the Church’s faith, practice, policy, and discipline, our Elders are the Church’s final interpretive authority on the Bible’s meaning and application.We believe in one God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
