Summary



We love seeing what happens in people's lives when they discover God through the study of His Word. We have Bible studies for all age groups and stages of life, from classes for toddlers and teens to classes for adults who are single and married. Together we explore the Bible and what it tells us about the God who has woven His story through history and is present with us now.

Statement of faith

WE BELIEVE that the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, is divine revelation and the inspired Word of God, inerrant in the original manuscripts. Its teaching is the final authority for all Christian life in matters of faith and practice.

WE BELIEVE in the unity of the Godhead, eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and yet identical in nature; all-powerful, all-knowing, everywhere present, and unchangeable; infinitely perfect in love, truth, righteousness, justice, goodness, grace, and mercy.

WE BELIEVE that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is both fully God and fully man, two natures in one person. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He performed miracles to manifest His deity, lived a sinless life, suffered, and died as a completely satisfactory sacrifice for the sin of the whole world. He arose from the dead on the third day, and His bodily resurrection guarantees the resurrection of all who believe in Him. He ascended to the right hand of God the Father, where He reigns over the universe and intercedes for believers, and from where He will return to earth to establish His kingdom.

WE BELIEVE that man was created in the image of God but fell into disobedience by a voluntary decision and, as a result, became separated from God, and therefore spiritually dead and subject to physical death. This fallen nature was transmitted to all humanity, except Jesus Christ, who lived a sinless life. The blood of Jesus Christ was shed for our redemption. Only those who receive Christ Jesus by faith are forgiven and born of the Holy Spirit; thus, they become children of God. Faith alone is the condition of salvation, but good works and righteous living should accompany such faith and furnish evidence of its existence.

WE BELIEVE that the Holy Spirit indwells and seals every believer at the moment of saving faith. The ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ and, during this age, to convince men of sin, regenerate the believing sinner, and indwell, guide, instruct, and empower the believer for godly living and service. We believe that all Christians should witness for Christ in His power and study the Bible with His help.

WE BELIEVE that the church, composed of all who genuinely believe in and accept Jesus Christ as Savior, is united together into one body, of which He is the Head. As members of the church, we have a responsibility to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace, supporting the local church and loving one another with pure hearts.
