Cross Backlight

God is real. He is all-powerful, all-knowing, and totally inc charge of the direction history is moving. He is Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He created everything and everyone, and every person matters deeply to Him. Everyone has sinned, so everyone needs Jesus, who died for our sins, rose again from the dead, and is coming back. Salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Jesus Christ alone. Once you're saved, you're always saved!

We believe:

  • Heaven and Hell are real. Angels,demons, and Satan are real.
  • The Holy Spirit lives in every Believer and empowers and gifts us to live and to serve.
  • The Bible, which is God's Word, is both true and powerful.
  • Baptism is when Believers are immersed in water, not for salvation, but to tell the world we follow Jesus.
  • Communion (aka The Lord's Supper) is a memorial to Jesus' death.
  • Jesus started the Church before His death, protects the Church though every age, and commissioned the Church to tell the world about Him.
