We are so glad you’ve taken the time to visit our website. We hope you find it full of the information you need and will visit often! Our worship, bible study and preaching of the Word of God, hopes to encourage and equip believers of all ages to be committed followers of Christ. Our goal is to create a church and community where all people have their needs met and their lives touched by the love of Christ. We invite you to join us this Sunday for worship and preaching of God’s Word.

What We Believe

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God. We believe that there is one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.

We believe that the lost and sinful man must be saved, and that man’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. We believe in and practice the holy ordinance of water baptism, which signifies the believer’s death, burial, and resurrection into new life with Christ Jesus, and the regular celebration of Holy Communion as commanded by our Lord.

We believe in the present ministry and baptism of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the unsaved; those that are saved into the resurrection of life and those that are unsaved into the resurrection of damnation.

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

Missions Ministry
