Our Beliefs & Practice

We believe:

•There is one God, Creator of all things, who is perfect and eternal. God exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. 

•Jesus Christ is truly God and truly man.  He lived a perfect life and died on the cross as the Substitutionary Atonement for our sins.  He arose bodily from the dead and ascended into Heaven. 

•Every individual is a sinner and needs God’s forgiveness.  Trusting Christ for forgiveness and salvation, they become a member of the body of Christ. 

•The Holy Spirit guides, indwells, instructs, and empowers believers for godly living and service. 

 •Everyone will experience bodily resurrection and judgment.  Those who have faith in Christ will live eternally with God. 


Why we dedicate children: 

In the New Testament, Luke chapter 2 says that following Jesus's birth, Mary and Joseph took the infant child to the temple and dedicated him to God.  The dedication of children is a public commitment made before God, your family, and the church.  The dedication service provides parents the opportunity to publicly express their intention to nurture and lead their child to a personal relationship with God.  


Why we practice believer’s baptism: 

We believe the Bible clearly teaches baptism by immersion.  The meaning of baptism is shown in passages such as Romans 6:1-10.  Baptism symbolizes a person’s acceptance of God’s forgiveness by death, burial, and resurrection (2 Corinthians 5:17).  In the New Testament, baptism always followed conversion as a testimony rather than a means of salvation.  It is a simple act of obedience by a believer. Baptismal services are conducted throughout the year.
