"YOU  Matter to GOD!"

​​We believe these things:


In One God... Father, Son, Holy Spirit (Matthew 5:16,45; 6:1,4,8,9;  James 1:17 / John 1:1; 14:9 / Genesis 1:2;  John 4:24; 14:16-20;  II Peter 1:21)


In God the Father, Creator of all things visible and invisible (Genesis 1:1; Acts 17:24-28; Hebrews 11:3)


In Jesus Christ, God's one and only Son, and the only Savior (John 1:14; I John 4:9; / John 3:16; II Peter 3:18)


  • He was born both fully human and fully divine, conceived of the Holy Spirit to the Virgin Mary (Matthew 21:11;  John 19:19 / John 1:14;  Romans 5:15-17)

  • He suffered and was crucified (Luke 23:1-46)

  • He died and was buried, and rose again bodily from the dead on the third day (Luke 23:44 - 24:8; John 20:24-29;  I Corinthians 15:3-8)

  • He ascended into Heaven and now sits at the right hand of the Father (Luke 22:69: Acts 1:1-9; Colossians 3:1)

  • He will return to earth to judge both the living and the dead (Matthew 24:36-42; John 14:1-3;  Acts 1:10-11; 10:39-42;      I Peter 4:5)


In the Holy Spirit


  • Who is an active and operative part of the triune God (John 16:5-15; Acts 1:7-8; Romans 8:26-27)

  • Who indwells every Christian (I Corinthians 3:16;6:19; II Timothy 1:14)


In the Bible -- God's Holy Word, Scripture.  We believe God inspired the autographs (original writings) of the Scripture and those autographs were consequently without error (Mark 12:36;  John 14:26;  16:12-15; Acts 1:16; I Corinthians 2:12-13;           II Timothy 3:14-16; II Peter 1:20-21)


  • We accept the Bible as the final authority for all matters of faith and practice (Isaiah 40:8; Matthew 5:18; 24:35; Romans 15:4; Hebrews 4:12)


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


The Bible teaches that salvation --the forgiveness of sins--is only by grace through the blood of Jesus Christ (Matthew 26:28;  Romans 5:9; Ephesians 2:8-9; I Peter 1:18-19;  I John 1:7)


  • We believe the Bible teaches that one receives God's grace by putting faith in Christ, repenting of sin, confessing Christ as Lord, and being immersed (baptized) into Christ (Romans 5:1-2 / Luke 24:45-47; Acts 3:19; 17:30;  II Peter 3:9 / Matthew 10:32;  Romans 10:9;  Philippians 2:11;  I John 4:15 / Acts 2:38;  Romans 61-7; Galatians 3:27;  Colossians 2:12;  I Peter 3:21)
