  • doctrinal statement


    Jesus is the only Son of God who died to pay for our sins on the cross and by His blood atonement, we are saved! Revelation 5:9


    God is the Sovereign creator of the world. He does what He chooses. Psalm 115:3

    Holy Spirit

    The Holy Spirit is the 3rd person of the Trinity. (Acts 5:3-4) He is omnipresent. (Psalm 129:7-8) The Holy Spirit reveals the thoughts and intentions of God to us (2 Corinthians 2:10-11). 


    2 Timothy 3:16 The Scripture is given by God to lead, guide and direct out lives. We believe in the verbal plenary inspiration of Scripture. 


    Salvation is given by grace and received through faith in Jesus Christ. (Ephesians 2:8-10)

    Eternal Security

    Our Salvation is sealed until the day of redemption. It cannot be lost, denied or walked away from. (John 10:28) 


    God created the world in 6 days and created all that exists therein. (Genesis 1) 

    Second coming

    The Lord will return for His Bride, the church. We refer to this as the Rapture. (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17/John 14:1-4) He will then return to establish His Kingdom following the Judgement Seat and the Great Tribulation. (John 5:25-29) Satan and his demons will be sentenced to the furnace of fire. (Matthew 13:40-43)
