We believe the Bible teaches that salvation is received only by God's grace through Jesus Christ's death, burial, and resurrection ( I Corinthians 15:3-4).
Love God Love Others
Love is the number one thing God asks us to do. First, that we love Him, next that we love others. We believe the love we have for others symbolizes the love Jesus had for us. It shows our discipleship, proves our love for God, and indicates our authenticity as a New Testament church (Matthew. 22:35-40; John 13:34-35; John 15:12; 1 John 4: 7-21; 1 John 5 1-3; Rev. 2:4-5).
The Bible is Truth
The Bible in its entirety is without error. It is inspired by God Himself as our guide of faith and practice (Psalms 119:160; 2 Tim. 3:16-17).
Once someone has truly accepted Christ as their personal Savior, that Salvation cannot be lost. Jesus Christ's salvation is eternal. Salvation is by God's grace alone and not by any work of man (John 10:27-30).
Jesus Christ established His church during His ministry on earth and it is always a local, visible assembly of scripturally baptized believers carrying out the Great Commission (evangelizing, baptizing, and teaching) (Matthew 4: 18-22; Mathew 16:18; Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 1:14-20).
God created man in his own image. Just as man is made up of three parts (mind, body, and spirit), so too is our creator (Father, Son, and Spirit). All three are equally one God (Genesis 1:26; Matthew. 28:19; John 10:30).
