Faith is our belief in Christ and the foundation for a right relationship with God through Jesus Christ.  Without faith, one can not live the life that Christ has called him or her to live. We believe that faith comes from hearing the Word. Faith is what leads a person to salvation. Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer. In its broadest sense salvation includes regeneration, justification, sanctification, and glorification. There is no salvation apart from personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord.

Revelation 3:20


We believe that Scripture is the inerrant Word of God. The Holy Bible was written by men who were divinely inspired and is God's revelation of who He is to man. All Scripture is totally true and trustworthy. In it, one will find the ordinances by which God will judge man. This allows for a Christian to live the best life he can for God.  All Scriptures will point a person to Christ. The gospel story can be found in Scripture and can lead a person to a right relationship with God through Jesus Christ.

It is the duty and privilege of every follower of Christ and of every church of the Lord Jesus Christ to endeavor to make disciples of all nations. The new birth of man’s spirit by God’s Holy Spirit means the birth of love for others. Missionary effort on the part of all rests thus upon a spiritual necessity of the regenerate life, and is expressly and repeatedly commanded in the teachings of Christ. The Lord Jesus Christ has commanded the preaching of the gospel to all nations. It is the duty of every child of God to seek constantly to win the lost to Christ by verbal witness undergirded by a Christian lifestyle, and by other methods in harmony with the gospel of Christ.
