What we Believe


Gospel-Centered

At our church, you will hear the word “gospel” repeatedly because it is the most important truth that we can know and experience. The gospel is not merely a message that needs to be shared with non-Christians, but also with Christians. It is not something that mature Christians move on from, but rather something that they move deeper into. The gospel is the lens in which we should view theology, ministry, and all aspects of life.


The Apostle Paul defined the word “gospel” concisely in 1st Corinthians 15:3-5 when he wrote, “Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve.” Simply put, the gospel is all about Jesus’ life, death and resurrection, and the implications it has for us.

Basic beliefs

We are a part of the Southern Baptist Convention. Therefore by association, our beliefs are linked as well.

We believe that:

    • the Scriptures are true, authoritative and sufficient.
    • there is only one true God, Creator of heaven and earth, who eternally exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
    • all things exist for the glory of God.
    • all humanity - Christ excluded - is sinful by both birth and action.
    • the deserved penalty for sin is physical and spiritual death.
    • Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, was born of a virgin and is both fully God and fully human.
    • Jesus Christ died as the sacrificial substitute to pay the penalty for sin.
    • Jesus Christ physically rose from the dead, ascended into heaven and will one day physically return.
    • there will be a future physical resurrection of the dead. Only those who turn from sin and to Jesus in faith and repentance will be raised to eternal reward. Those who do not turn from sin and to Jesus will be raised to eternal punishment.
    • only through faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ and repentance from sin can one be reconciled to God and experience true life and joy.
