Statement of Faith

Grow in Christ

The Holy Bible is the inspired word of God and is the basis for any statements of faith.  We unite as a body of baptized believers in Jesus Christ, each of us being personally committed to sharing the good news of salvation with mankind.  The ordinances of the church are Baptism and The Lord’s Supper.
Having been led, as we believe by the Spirit of God, to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior and, on the profession of faith, having being baptized in the name of the Father,  and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, we do now, in the presence of God and this assembly, most solemnly and joyfully enter into covenant with one another as one body in Christ.
The Scriptures
The Scriptures of the Old and New Testament were given by inspiration of God and are the only sufficient, certain, and authoritative rule of all saving knowledge, faith, and obedience.
GOD
There is but one God, the Maker, Preserver, and Ruler of all things having in and of himself all perfections, and being infinite in them all; and to Him all creatures owe the highest love, reverence, and obedience.
The Trinity
God is revealed to us as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, each with distinct personal attributes but without division of nature, essence, or being.
Salvation
Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, is the divinely appointed mediator between God and man.  Salvation is through grace alone and not by man’s works.
