We believe that GOD’s command to make disciples is our greatest privilege and responsibility. We are therefore committed to fulfilling our purpose through ministry, mission, fellowship, discipleship, evangelism and worship. Our goal is to evangelize the unsaved, promote spiritual maturity and to make every member a minister of the Christ.

We believe
The entire Bible is inspired by God, without error and the authority on which we base our faith, conduct and doctrine.


We believe
In one God who exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God who came to this earth as Savior of the world.


We believe
Jesus died on the cross and shed His blood for our sins. We believe that salvation is found by placing our faith in what Jesus did for us on the cross. We believe Jesus rose from the dead and is coming again.


We believe
Water baptism is a symbol of the cleansing power of the blood of Christ and a testimony to our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.


We believe
In the regular taking of Communion as an act of remembering what the Lord Jesus did for us on the cross.


We believe
Every believer should be in a growing relationship with Jesus by obeying God’s Word, yielding to the Holy Spirit and by being conformed to the image of Christ.
