What We Believe

There is One Body, the Church

The oneness of the church of Christ is taught by Jesus and the apostles beginning in Matthew 16:18. Jesus is the head of the church (Colossians 1:18). The church is composed by those who are added to Christ through obedience of faith (Acts 2:38-47).

There is One Spirit

"The Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom (2 Corinthians 3:17). He shares deity with the Father. The scriptures teach that the Spirit is given to all who obey the gospel (Acts 5:32). He is the seal of our salvation and the guarantee of our inheritance in Christ (Ephesians 1:13-14). 

There is One Hope

When Jesus said, "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life," he announced our only hope. "No one comes to the Father except through Me" (John 14:6). Jesus is our only hope because he was the only one who could take our shame and defilement and make us right with God.

There is One Lord and One God

The deity of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are plainly taught in Scripture. The resurrection of Jesus Christ proves his deity and qualifies him to be Lord and Christ (Acts 2:36). Jesus is fully human and fully God (John 1:1,14; 20:28; 1 John 5:20).

There is One Faith

The faith into which we have been delivered is by grace through obedience of faith (Ephesians 2:8-9). This faith is a system of belief based in the historical event of the resurrection of Jesus. Our faith is confirmed the eyewitness testimony of the apostles. 

There is One Baptism

Baptism is by immersion in water with faith in the completed work of Jesus Christ for our salvation. In baptism we re-enact the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. As he was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we are raised out of water to live a new life in Christ (Romans 6:1-7).

What to Expect When You Visit Us

A Friendly Welcome

We are a loving, caring, and friendly congregation. It has been said that it's impossible to visit without several walking up to greet, welcome, and visit. Our hope is that, you can't wait to come back.

A cappella singing, or singing without accompaniment of instruments

Singing prepares the human heart to receive the word of God. The church in the first century did not use musical instruments in praise, only their voices. There is something special about harmonizing and blending voices that lifts the heart to God in worship.

The Lord's Supper

The Lord's Supper, or Communion, is central in our worship. Jesus instructed  this observance to be often. In the Books of Acts we read that it was weekly (Acts 20:7). The men of the congregation help us to focus on its purpose and serve the congregation.
