What do we believe?

  • We believe that the Holy Bible is God’s Word and that His will is revealed to us there in written form.
  • We believe that all people have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.
  • We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and that he has won salvation for us all.
  • We believe that those who have faith in Jesus Christ as their Savior and are baptized will be saved and have eternal life!
