Our Theology

JESUS CHRISTis the foundation and cornerstone of the church. He came to restore man’s broken relationship with God. His finished work on the cross made that possible. Because of His love demonstrated on the cross by dying for our sins, we now have reason to fellowship with one another and proclaim salvation through His life, death, and resurrection. (1 Corinthians 3:11, Ephesians 2:20, Romans 5:6-10)

 THE BIBLE – is the inspired, infallible, word of God and is relevant and applicable to man today. Therefore, we place great emphasis upon teaching it in public, studying it in private, and using it as a guide for our daily lives. (1 Timothy 4:13, 2 Timothy 3:16-17, 1 Thessalonians 2:13)

 WORSHIP – We believe God is worthy of all praise, reverence, and love. We take special time to worship Him in church through song. It is our goal to worship Him with our whole lives as well: at home, at work, and at play. (John 15:5, Romans 8:29, Ephesians 4:15)

CHRISTIAN GROWTH – Our supreme desire is to know Jesus and to be conformed to His image, likeness, and example by the power of the Holy Spirit. We encourage this by abiding in Jesus Christ through His Word, prayer, fellowship, and by yielding our lives to the Holy Spirit. (John 4:23 Colossians 3:16, 1 Thessalonians 2:13)

 LOVE – is the greatest virtue and demonstration of the reality of Christ Jesus. We endeavor to show a Christ-like love to all men. Love should be exhibited in our lives by our words as well as our actions.
(John 13:34-35, 1 Corinthians 13:13, Philippians 2:3-5)

 CHRISTIAN SERVICE – is a part of the Christian life and is the responsibility of all believers. Our goal is to develop the ministry of every member to the benefit of all.
(Ephesians 4:11-13, 1 Corinthians 12:4-7)
