Our Beliefs 2018-01-04T21:35:10+00:00

We believe in the one true living God, revealed in three distinct persons, the Holy Trinity of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ

We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the Word of the Father, and is both wholly Divine and wholly Human. Jesus is the Messiah who suffered, was crucified, died, and was buried in order to reconcile his Father to us for the original and actual sins of humanity. We believe Jesus Christ rose from the dead and ascended into heaven.

Holy Spirit

We believe in the Holy Spirit which was sent by the Father and Son and is of one nature with them.

The Bible

We believe that the Bible is Holy Scripture and contains all things necessary for salvation. We believe that both the Old and New Testaments are authoritative and important for sturdy. We find that the Old and New Testaments are not contrary, as Christ offers salvation to humanity in both, acting as the only mediator between God and humanity.

Humanity

We believe in Original Sin, that the nature of Humanity has been corrupted from the original righteousness in which we were created; without God, we can achieve no good. Humanity cannot know God or performs good works without the Grace of Jesus Christ working first in us.

We are saved by the merit of Jesus Christ and not our own works, thus being justified by faith only. Good works are the fruit of our faith after our Justification and are pleasing before God. We believe that one can depart from grace once given, falling back into sin and by the Grace of God can be redeemed again if necessary.

The Church

We believe that the Church is the Body of Christ and a necessary part of faith where the Word of God is preached and the Sacraments of Baptism and Communion are administered.

Baptism

Baptism is a sign of profession and mark of Christians and is also a sign of regeneration or new birth. Baptism is recognized as God’s action in our lives, and therefore young children may be baptized.

Communion

Communion, the Lord’s Supper, is a sign of love that Christians share with each other and also the sacrament of our redemption by Christ’s death. We serve an open table open to all who desire a closer relationship with Jesus Christ.
