What We Believe

What We Believe

If you are interested in a fuller statement and discussion of what we believe, feel free to take a look at the 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith.

  • We believe that all of Scripture is inspired by God and is our final authority in all matters of faith, our only fully reliable guide to true godliness.
  • We believe that there is only one God and that this one God has revealed himself to us in Scripture in three Persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
  • We believe that the second Person of the Trinity came in the flesh to offer himself as a sacrifice for sin, and that it is only through faith in Jesus that salvation is made available to anyone.
  • We believe that salvation to eternal life is the sovereign work of God in a person’s life and given entirely apart from any good works that may be done by the sinner.
  • We believe that while our good works have no role to play in earning salvation, that the one who is saved by grace has been created in Christ Jesus to do good works and thus will always be involved in doing good.
  • We believe that the greatest duty of any person is to worship the Lord in the manner God has set forth in Scripture, and that this includes gathering weekly with the saints in public worship.
  • We believe that Jesus is going to return some day in bodily form to judge all people, and that the righteous will go with him to enjoy eternal life while the wicked will be sent to endure eternal punishment.
