According to the Bible, God’s Word, those who believe in Jesus Christ as the one and only Son of God, believe that He died on the cross as the payment for their sin, and confess Him as their Lord and Savior, are saved – and considered members of God’s family, the Church. We welcome all who hold this belief as our brothers and sisters in Christ.

We believe Christ builds His Body, the Church, through His Word, His Spirit, and His people. The Word builds us up by teaching us the ways of God; by strengthening, comforting and giving us hope; by keeping us from sin; and by guiding us in righteousness. God uses the Holy Spirit and His people to build the Body. Therefore, all believers are ministers for Christ. We believe in the bodily resurrection of all people for judgment. Believers will be judged, but will be found blameless because of the covering of the blood of Christ, and will enjoy eternal life with God. Unbelievers will be judged according to what they have done and will not inherit the kingdom of God.
