What We Believe

While our statement of faith discusses our doctrine, there is one overriding factor which forms and governs our belief:
The Word of God, written and living!

We are a Bible Based Church

We believe the Bible is God’s Word to mankind. In it we can find all the necessary instructions for life and spiritual health. It is this Word that is the foundation for everything we do.

We are a Bible Preaching Church

The Bible tells the Good New of Jesus Christ coming to earth, His death and resurrection, which provides an entrance for man to a new relationship with God. This alone is our message. We believe it, and preach it.

We are a Bible Teaching Church

The world is filled with many good books, but there is only one “Good Book!” The Bible is so important to us that we believe in teaching it to both young and old. Imagine what a great community we could have if politics and philosophies were put aside and everyone knew and followed the instruction of the Bible – God’s Word.
