Who We Are
We’re trying to keep things simple and about Christ. We treasure communion with God, the fellowship of the saints, and love for the lost. We love the Bible and the gospel of Jesus Christ. Everything we do flows from what God has said and done.
What We Do
On the Lord’s Day we gather together as God’s people to hear, sing, pray, preach, and receive God’s Word. We do these things through the Holy Spirit and are then sent as God’s witnesses in the world.
What We Believe
We hold to the historic orthodox Christian faith and stand in the stream of Protestantism. A summary of our beliefs is found in the statement of faith below.
Statement of Faith
We believe that the Bible is the written word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit and without error in the original manuscripts. The Bible is the revelation of God’s truth and is infallible, sufficient, and authoritative in all matters of faith and practice.
We believe in the Holy Trinity. There is one God, infinite and unchanging, who exists eternally in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, who through His perfect obedience and sacrificial death as the representative and substitute of his people, atoned for the sins of all who would trust in Him alone for salvation.
The Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells God’s people and enables them to trust Christ and follow Him. Faith is the gracious gift of God.
Man and Sin
We believe that all people are sinners by nature, are guilty in God’s sight, and are totally unable to save themselves from God’s displeasure of sin. His free grace alone provides a way of salvation.
We believe that this salvation is a gift of God. He sovereignly chooses whom He will save. We believe that His choice is based solely on His grace, not on any merit found in His people, their foreseen faith, or their religious activity.
We believe that the only way to acceptance with God is by God’s grace alone, through faith alone, in Jesus Christ alone.
We believe that the church is the covenant community of God and the sphere within which the grace of God is available to all, through the preaching and teaching of the Bible, and the administration of the sacraments of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
Perseverance of the Saints
We believe that having come to saving faith in Christ, believers can never be lost, but persevere to the end, being kept by the power of God through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. This perseverance is both the responsibility of every believer, and the infallible promise of God to all his people.
The Return of Christ
We believe that Jesus will return at the last day, bodily and visibly, to judge all mankind and to receive His people to Himself.
Living the Christian Life
We believe that all aspects of our lives are to be lived to the glory of God under the Lordship of Jesus Christ as we wait for the day of his glorious appearing.
