Core BeliefsWhat We Believe

The Priesthood of All Believers

We believe every Christian has direct access to God through Jesus Christ - access to God is not restricted by considerations of person or position.  Therefore, each person is free to interpret the Scriptures by aid of the Holy Spirit for themselves.  All Christians are ministers.  Though individual members serve different roles of leadership in the church (such as pastor, deacon, teacher, etc.), every Christian is called to minister according to his or her gifts.  Therefore, we have a place for you to join us in serving the Lord.

1 Timothy 2:5-6; Hebrews 10:19-26

The Authority of Scripture for Faith and Practice

We believe the Bible is the divinely inspired Word of God, giving instruction and insight for the way we practice our faith in moral responsibility, treasure our theological beliefs, and nurture relationships with God and with each other - therefore, it should be read by everyone.
The Bible is perfect truth from cover to cover, and all Scripture in the Old Testament through the New Testament points to Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, the Ultimate Word of God.

2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21

Satan

We believe it is satan’s desire to destroy mankind.  

John 10:10

Heaven and Hell

We believe in heaven and hell.  Those persons who die without faith in Jesus Christ spend eternity in Hell and those persons who die with their sins forgiven, through faith in Christ, spend eternity in Heaven.

Revelation 20:14-15; John 3:16
