The Pastor's Study
Watch Sunday mornings at 11 a.m.
What We Believe
We believe in the Triune God, the one God who exists in three eternal Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe that God the Son became a man (Jesus), died for our sins and rose from the dead and through Him alone one can receive the forgiveness of sins and eternal life. We affirm the substitutionary atonement of Christ, namely, that Jesus lived a perfect life and suffered the wrath of God in our place to make payment for the sins of mankind. We affirm Christ’s bodily resurrection from the dead. We believe that faith in Christ is necessary for salvation and those without Christ will not be saved (John 14:6). We believe we are saved by the unmerited grace of God and not by our good deeds. We believe that good deeds are the evidence of our faith.
We believe the Bible is the infallible Word of God, the highest authority to which the Christian submits. All theology, morality, teaching and opinion should be judged by the Holy Scriptures. We reject attempts to rewrite Scripture to eliminate masculine references for God. We view pre-marital sex, abortion, and homosexual behavior as inconsistent with God’s Word. We believe there is forgiveness for these sins, and all sin, through repentance and faith in Christ.
