About Us


Eternal life in the family of God, serving with Christ in His Kingdom, helping to bring others into the family of God. (1 John 3:1-2, 1 Corinthians 15:22-24, Revelation 1:6)


  • To take advantage of the opportunities given to us to proclaim, collectively and individually, the "Good News of the Kingdom of God;" to make disciples of all people, to baptize them, and to teach them the teachings of Jesus. (Matthew 28:19-20)

  • To create a warm and loving environment in our local congregation, which will enhance each and every person's spiritual maturing, and enable each person to use his or her God-given talents in a mutually beneficial way. The environment should be uplifting, inspiring and motivational to all individuals in the congregation. (Hebrews 10:24-25, Philippians 4:8, 1 John 2:8-10)

  • For all members of the congregation to find ways to help each other "grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ" through continually growing in Biblical understanding, fellowship opportunities, and living God's way of love toward Him and others. (Matthew 6:33, 2 Peter 3:18, 2 Timothy 3:16)


  • There is one God and Father of all, who is above all, immortal and eternal.
  • Jesus Christ, as the Word, existed in the beginning, as God, with the Father, and shared the Father's glory. He voluntarily gave up that glory to become the Son of God, live a sinless human life and be crucified, after which he was resurrected and ascended to heaven. He will return to restore the government of God to the earth and establish the Kingdom of God, which will last forever.
  • The Holy Spirit is the gift of God, power of God, and presence of God in believers.
  • The Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, are the divinely inspired and authoritative Word of God containing the revelation of God essential for salvation.
  • Angels are spirit beings, created by God to serve Him and assigned by God to serve those who will receive salvation. Disobedient (or fallen) angels are called demons, and their leader, Satan the devil, is the accuser of the brethren, and deceiver of all mankind.
  • Humans were created in the image of God for the purpose of becoming His children, yet have no eternal life apart from God's gift. Humans are free to make choices, and since all have sinned, death now reigns over all mankind.
  • Man's only hope for life beyond the physical lies in a resurrection from the dead. Those who are in Christ (dead or alive) will be resurrected to spirit life at his return. A second resurrection, one thousand years later, will provide an opportunity to accept Christ to those who previously lived without having that opportunity. The punishment for those who refuse to repent is death.
  • The Ten Commandments summarize the eternal law of God, and are in full force under the new covenant, being written in the hearts of believers.
  • Repentance involves remorse for past sins and a resolve to walk according to the eternal law of God- a process known as conversion.
  • Baptism by immersion is a commanded ordinance outwardly demonstrating a believer's repentance of sin and acceptance of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. The believer receives the gift of the Holy Spirit through the laying on of hands.
  • Salvation is the deliverance from sin and death, and it is a gift of God personally received through a believer's faith in God.
  • The spiritual body of all believers, whose Head is Christ, is called the church, and it is commissioned to make disciples.
  • The Sabbath (seventh day) is a weekly holy day for rest from work, and participation in collective worship and fellowship.
  • The annual festivals given by God to Israel are illustrative of God's plan, were kept by Jesus and the early church, and will be observed in the future. It therefore follows that they are to be kept today.
