We are a historically Christian,
Reformed, Evangelical, Baptist Church.

We are historically Christian in that we believe what Christians have historically (throughout history [as expressed in the Apostles, Nicene, and Athanasian creeds]) believed: that God is an eternal Trinity; that He created all things; that humanity sinned against their Creator; that sin has wrecked us and the world we live in; that Jesus was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed genuine miracles like walking on water, multiplying food, and raising the dead, and was crucified on a cross for the forgiveness of sins, was buried, rose again on the third day, ascended into heaven, and that he's coming back again someday to judge the world, and that through the Gospel God is making all things new.

We are Reformed because we believe the great doctrines of the Protestant Reformation: that we are justified (or made right) before God by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone to the glory of God alone and that the Bible alone has the final say in all things related to what we believe and how we should live. We also believe that God loves and chooses to save sinners who could neither save themselves or choose to love him on their own. And because this salvation is of the Lord (Jon 2:9), those whom God saves (and are truly saved) can never lose their salvation. 

We are Evangelical because we believe and teach the Bible is trustworthy and without error and teaches us that "unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God" (John 3:3). So, we want to tell people everywhere that Jesus died for sins and rose again, that they are seperated from God on account of their sin, and that God calls all people everywhere to repent and trust in Jesus. All those who turn from their sin and embrace Christ are accepted by God, adopted into his family, and granted the gift of eternal life. This is the best news ever! And we believe everyone in the world needs to hear it.

We are Baptist because we believe only Christians who have consciously decided to trust in Christ should be baptized and become church members; that each local church should be independent of outside governance; that pastors/elders and deacons are the two recognized leadership positions in the church; that baptism and the Lord's Supper are the only two ordinances (or sacraments) given to the church; that no one can be forced into being a Christian; and that the government should not hinder the freedom of Christians to worship.
