Our Church Constitution
Here you will find a copy of our church constitution. This defines who we are and how we organize our church. click here.
We believe the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the verbally inspired Word of God, inerrant in the original writings, infallible, and the final authority for faith and life.
We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons--Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, became man without ceasing to be God. He accomplished our redemption through His substitutionary sacrifice on the cross. Our justification is made sure by His bodily resurrection.
We believe God created man in His image, but in Adam's sin the race fell, inherited a sinful nature and was alienated from God. Man outside Christ is totally unable to save himself.
We believe that salvation is the gift of God given to men by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Once redeemed we are kept secure in Christ forever by God's power alone.
We believe in the Blessed Hope, the personal, imminent, pretribulational and premillennial return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of all men, the saved to eternal life, and the unsaved to judgment and everlasting punishment.
