WHAT WE BELIEVE
As recorded in the second chapter of the Book of Acts, the Church of Christ was established in Jerusalem on the day of Pentecost after the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Christ serves as the head of His church; where those who have been saved make up His body. The Church is organized so that Elders serve to shepherd, mentor, and equip its members, deacons carry out various aspects of work assigned to them, and evangelists preach the word of God both publicly and privately. All members are to live faithfully, exemplify Christ in their daily lives, and have both the great privilege and responsibility to share the life-changing Gospel with others.
We believe there is one true God who has created all life and makes Himself known to the world as Father, Son and Spirit. (1 Tim. 2:5-6)
We believe the Bible is the inspired word of God (2 Timothy 3:16-17). Teaching the word of God is an important part of our services and functions as a guide where reference is repeatedly made in our sermons and classes.
We believe salvation is available only by grace through faith in Christ Jesus who died for our sins and was raised from the dead (Romans 3:23-25). The Bible teaches us that we are saved by this grace of God and includes the following:
Hearing the Gospel (Romans 10:17)
Believing the Gospel (Hebrews 11:6)
Repenting of Sins (Luke 13:3)
Confessing Christ (Matthew 10:32)
Being immersed in baptism (Mark 16:16)
Continuing to live a faithful life (2 Peter 1:5-11)
We believe that by obeying the gospel plan of salvation, we have forgiveness of sins, the gift of the Holy Spirit, membership in the church of Christ, and are made heirs to the blessings found in Jesus Christ. These acts of obedience make us a Christian.
We believe we have been commissioned by Jesus to make disciples of all nations, baptize them in the name of the Father, Son and Spirit, and teach them to obey everything he has commanded (Matt. 28:18-20).
