We know that what a church believes is important, since it will influence the content of the church's entire ministry. We hold the Bible as the ultimate authority and the only rule for faith and practice.

We are a congregation of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA), which subscribes to the Westminster Confession of Faith as an accurate summary of biblical doctrine.

Below is a summary of our core beliefs. While this list is not exhaustive, we hope it provides you a brief introduction and leads you to want to learn more.

God and the Bible

  • We believe there is one eternal God existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe the Bible is the Word of God, verbally inspired and inerrant, and is the supreme and final authority in faith and life.

Creation and Mankind

  • We believe God created the heavens and the earth and created mankind in His image.
  • We believe that God wonderfully and immutably creates each person male or female. These two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God.
  • We believe that at Creation God designed marriage as the union of one man and one woman, and that He intends sexual intimacy to occur only in this relationship.

Sin and Salvation

  • We believe that humankind, by disobedience, fell from a sinless state at the suggestion of Satan. This fall plunged humankind into a state of sin and spiritual death and brought upon all humanity the sentence of eternal death. From this condition, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely necessary for salvation.
  • We believe Jesus Christ is God manifested in the flesh, born of a virgin; He lived a sinless life, suffered and died on our behalf, and He arose bodily from the grave, ascended to the right hand of the Father and is coming again in power and glory.
  • We believe there will be a bodily resurrection of the saved to life and of the lost to damnation.
  • We believe that God offers redemption and restoration to all who confess and forsake their sin, seeking His mercy and forgiveness through Jesus Christ. By God's grace only, through faith in Christ alone, we are saved from our sin.
  • We believe faith without works is dead. The present ministry of the Holy Spirit is to indwell (live within) the Christian, enabling him to live a godly life.
