We believe the Bible is the inspired and inerrant word of God. We believe the Holy Scriptures are the only authority for what the Church believes, teaches, and practices. We believe our purpose in life is to glorify the Lord. We believe we should strive for righteous and holy living. We acknowledge that our only righteousness is in Christ. We believe the Lord is most honored and most pleased when we acknowledge the authority of His Holy Scriptures and apply its teachings to our lives.

The coming of Christ will be a glorious occasion and we look forward to that day when there will be no more sorrow, no more pain, and no more sin. When Christ returns, those who are in the graves will be raised in incorruption and reunited with their soul and spirit.

What is salvation? In general terms, salvation is deliverance. When we speak of ‘salvation by grace’, we mean deliverance from the wrath of God, the everlasting punishment that we deserve because of our sins.
