Our Beliefs






We believe that the basic and mandatory requirement for membership in this congregation is personal acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.




We believe that the local congregation has the power and competency to govern its own affairs and that interdependence is recognized in the voluntary association with denominational and interdenominational religious bodies.




We believe that the church should be free from interference by civil government.




We believe in the Holy Scriptures as the rule of faith and practice of our church and for our lives.




The two ordinances observed by the church are Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.




In baptism a person identifies publicly with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The act is witnessed by the church. While baptism is a man’s response, it is closely related to the grace of God, for only because God has acted in Christ is there a basis for our responding to Him. Baptism, normally done on first Sundays, but could be administered on any Sunday, is done by immersion and is administered on that scheduled basis when one or more candidates need to be baptized.



LORD’S SUPPER (Communion)


The Lord’s Supper is one of the highest expressions and holiest exercises of Christian worship. It is the second sacred ordinance instituted by Christ and is intended to be repeated frequently. It commemorates the finished sacrificial work of salvation by Christ which sustains the life of His church. The Lord’s Supper maintains a vital relationship between Christ and His Church. The elements of bread and wine point to the broken body and shed blood of Christ sacrificed in order that we can be forgiven for sins. They are visible symbols which reinforce the Gospel preached in words. We are reminded of His death, burial, resurrection, exaltation and that He is coming back again to reign on earth. The Lord’s Supper is administered on the first Sunday of each month during the morning worship period.
