Who Are We?
We are a congregation of believers united in faith and by our desire to be “Christians only.” We believe that God has spoken finally and authoritatively through His Son, Jesus, the Christ, who was crucified, died, was buried, rose from the dead and has ascended again into heaven where He remains until His return to claim His bride, the church and to judge the world. This Jesus, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, has revealed His will to us in Scripture, which we diligently seek to use as our only guide for belief and practice.
We understand the New Testament teaching that persons become Christ’s followers by personal faith in Jesus (Rom. 5:1-2), turning away from sin (what the Bible calls “repentance”—Acts 17:30-31), confessing with the mouth and with action that Jesus is Lord, (Romans 10:9-10), and baptism (immersion in water) for the forgiveness of sins (Acts 2:38; Rom. 6:1-4). We understand that when one becomes a follower of Christ, they receive the gift of God’s Spirit (Acts 2:38; 5:32), and enter Christ’s body, the church (Acts 2:47). Then we are to remain faithful (Rev.2:10).
We believe that God works in our lives through His Spirit to transform us into Christ’s likeness (2 Cor. 3:18) and that we are called to put out of our lives things like sexual immorality, hatred, jealousy, selfishness, and rage, (Colossians 3) and to replace them with what the Bible calls the fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Gal. 5:19-26). We believe that as a congregation—and as individuals—we are called to serve others (Gal. 6:10).
When we meet each Sunday, our worship—like that we read about in the New Testament—we partake of the Lord’s Supper, and this worship includes singing, prayer, giving, and the study and proclamation of God’s Word.
We invite you to visit us anytime and to join us in pursuing the heart of God!
