Our Basic Belief
We hold the Holy Scriptures to be given to us by God and our guide for life and faith. We believe in the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as being One and the only God. We believe that believing in Jesus Christ, His death on the cross for our sins, and His resurrection is the only door into an eternal relationship with God. We believe that Christians are called into active relationship with each other as part of their growing relationship with God in Jesus. We share communion monthly and encourage each believer to be baptized.
