What We Believe

What We Believe

We want to simply be Christians, followers of Jesus Christ and do all things to the glorification of God.

We desire to be un-denominational, avoiding religious division by trying to just be the church of Christ we read about in the Bible. We take only the name of Christ, honoring Him as the Son of God, the savior of the world, the head of the church, and the center of our lives.

What visitors are often interested to hear about God’s truth

God – All things were created through God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. We believe in striving to please God not just in a few things, but in all things. Jesus’ example shows us that loving God will produce a life that wants to give God exactly what He has commanded in all things.

Scripture – We believe Scripture is inspired by God as it claims to be (2 Tim. 3:16-17), and that God through the Holy Spirit guided the thoughts and writings of those who wrote the Bible to give us His words. The Old Testament is our tutor, is no longer in effect and tells us about the coming of Christ. The New Testament tells us that he came as God promised and provides us with his commandments for us to live in order to be with God forever.  As the word of God, Scripture has the power to shape us, judge us, and strengthen us, and so we hold it up as the only authoritative voice in religious matters.

People – We believe that we are to love our neighbor as ourselves. In so doing we are to teach seekers God’s word, edify each other and provide assistance to those in need.

Salvation/Baptism – We believe the New Testament teaching of how to become a Christian is the only teaching that has the promises of God attached to it. Thus, like the apostles in the New Testament, we teach that salvation through Christ comes when our faith in Jesus leads us to take the step of conversion to Christ: in repentance, confession of Jesus as Lord, and baptism into Christ for the forgiveness of sins (Matt. 28:18-20, Acts 2:37-38, Gal. 3:26-27, Col. 2:12-13, 1 Peter 3:21). Baptism is not a work of merit (Tit. 3:5), but is the act in which God unites us with Jesus and His death (Rom. 6:3-4)

Church – We believe that we do not “join” a church but are “added” to the church, Christ’s body, by being baptized into Christ, his death and resurrection.

Spiritual Growth and Transformation -We are told in Romans 12:1-2 that we are to grow spiritually and not be conformed to this world but be transformed so we can prove the will or word of God through our lives.
