Statement of Faith

We believe this Statement of Faith to be an accurate summary of what Scripture teaches. Doctrines that are not included should not be advocated by any member in such a way as to cause dissension. This church recognizes that it cannot bind the conscience of individual members in areas where Scripture is silent. Each believer is to be led in those areas by the Lord, being careful not to cause someone to stumble, and being aware that he or she is ultimately responsible to the Lord for both actions and example.

Our doctrine and beliefs are wholly based upon the principles and teachings of the Bible. We believe that the Holy Scriptures, composed of the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testament, originated with God and were recorded by chosen men. We hold that the Scriptures speak with the authority of God and are infallible and inerrant in the original manuscripts. They are the unique, full and final authority on all matters of faith and practice. There are no other writings similarly inspired by God. The central purpose of God's revelation in Scripture is to call all people into fellowship with Himself.
