Core Principles

Our fervent desire and steadfast commitment is to have a biblically sound church whereby the glorious gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ is preached.

Our intention is to operate on Scriptural principles and guidelines that control how we function both as individuals and as a church. Our aim is not to please men, nor follow worldly practices; rather, we aim to please our Lord and Master, the Head of the church, Jesus Christ.

We believe without reservation that the Scriptures are the word of God. They are inerrant (without error) and infallible (incapable of leading astray). The Scriptures speak with authority in all matters, and our desire is to submit to that authority.

We believe that preaching is God's chosen method of saving the lost and transforming the believer into Christ-likeness. Our intention is to teach the word of God accurately. By rightly dividing the word of truth we will guide our fellow believers and ourselves into sound doctrine and practice. Therefore, the preaching of the word of God is central to our worship of Him.

We believe that salvation comes from God alone according to His good pleasure. Only by the grace of God can a sinner be transformed from the corruption, wickedness, and enmity with God that marks unregenerated man. This transformation results in new affections—love for God and hatred of sin. It also results in a new desire to be obedient to God and His word. Because the Holy Spirit indwells genuine believers their lives will be marked by an increasing conformity to the image of Christ.

Furthermore, we believe that the church should be kept pure. Therefore we will follow our Lord’s instructions on dealing with sin in the church. We will continue to preach the word of God, evangelize the lost, disciple the faithful, baptize by immersion, and partake of the Lord's Supper.
