  • Doctrinal statement


    He is God in the flesh; He is the Son of God: one of the three persons of the Godhead; He was the sinless perfect sacrifice to take the sins of all mankind upon Himself, through Him we can have forgiveness and eternal life.


    There is only 1 God, but that 1 God has 3 persons (God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit) God the Father sent His only son into the world to die for the sins of mankind.

    Holy Spirit

    He is the third person of the Trinity. When a person places their faith and trust in what Christ did for them, the Holy Spirit indwells the believer, He comforts, illuminates truth, and teaches & leads us in God's ways.


    The Bible is inspired by God, and is the complete word of God. We require no more revelation.


    Salvation is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. There is nothing we can do to merit salvation, it is a gift of God.

    Eternal Security

    A believer cannot lose their salvation. Salvation is promised by God and kept by His power.


    God created everything in a literal 6 days, and it was good. Then sin entered the world.

    Second Coming

    Pre-millenial second coming of Christ to earth and His saints with Him.
