Our Beliefs & Practice

We believe:

We believe that there is only one, living and true God, infinite, intelligent, the maker and Sovereign Ruler of heaven and earth; inexpressibly glorious in holiness, eternal, and unchangeable; Immeasurable and infinite in all wisdom, power, holiness, justice, goodness, and truth. God is fully omniscient, omnipotent, and omnipresent. He alone is worthy of all honor, confidence, and love. In the unity of the Godhead, He is one God in His essence and three Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit – equal in nature, distinct in person, and submissive in duties.  

Apostles Creed

We believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.

We believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended to hell. On the third day, he rose again from the dead. He ascended to heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty. From there, he will come to judge the living and the dead.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Christian church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

Why we dedicate children: 

In the New Testament, Luke chapter 2 says that following Jesus's birth, Mary and Joseph took the infant child to the temple and dedicated him to God.  The dedication of children is a public commitment made before God, your family, and the church.  The dedication service provides parents the opportunity to publicly express their intention to nurture and lead their child to a personal relationship with God.  


Why we practice believer’s baptism: 

We believe the Bible clearly teaches baptism by immersion.  The meaning of baptism is shown in passages such as (Romans 6:1-10).  Baptism symbolizes a person’s acceptance of God’s forgiveness and a public profession of the Gospel - the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17). In the New Testament, baptism always followed conversion as a testimony rather than a means of salvation.  It is a simple act of obedience by a believer. Baptismal services are conducted throughout the year.
