About Us

WE BELIEVE

A detailed copy of our “Articles of Faith” is available upon request; the fundamentals of our faith may be summarized as follows:

  • Inspiration and Authority of Scripture – God authored the entire Bible – every word of it and every part of it (2 Timothy 3:16).
  • Deity of Jesus Christ – He is fully God and fully man. He has always existed as God, and will always be God (I John 1:1; John 20:31).
  • Christ’s Virgin Birth – Jesus was born of the virgin Mary (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1) and was sinless (Hebrews 4:15; 1 Peter 2:22).
  • Christ’s Blood Atonement for Sin – Jesus shed His blood as the payment for our sins. Without the shedding of His blood, there is no remission of sin (Hebrews 9:14-28).
  • Christ’s Bodily Resurrection – Jesus arose bodily from the grave, triumphing over death, assuring believers of their future resurrection (I Corinthians 15:1-20).
  • Christ’s Personal Return – Jesus assured His disciples that He will come again (John 14:1-3).
  • CHURCH MEMBERSHIP

  • We believe that membership in a local church is an important commitment that a Christian makes to a local body of believers. The local church provides a framework for growth, accountability and service—a place to lock arms together and do the work of the ministry…together.
  • Requirements for Membership

  • Evidence of salvation by a personal commitment to Jesus Christ.
  • Baptism by immersion as a public testimony and identification with Christ.
  • Completion of the Base 1 Discipleship seminar, a 10-week class scheduled during the 9 am discipleship hour (offered once or twice per year).
  • Willingness to abide by the doctrinal statement and covenant of the church.
  • Commitment to active participation and service in the church.
