Church Doctrine About Jesus Jesus, the son of God, existed eternally as God, was born of a virgin, died on the cross to atone for our sins, and rose to victory over death, so all who believe are justified. About God’s Word We believe that verbal plenary inspiration by God compiled the Bible and that it is inerrant in its original writings. About Mankind and Salvation Man was created in God’s image and sinned, causing separation from God. Salvation is offered to everyone by grace and received by putting your faith in Christ. About the Holy Spirit The Holy Spirit convicts us of sin, righteousness, and judgment. He’s the life of each believer and empowers the preaching of the gospel. About Resurrection The Lord Jesus Christ rose bodily from the tomb on the third day after his crucifixion and death, before ascending to heaven 50 days later. About the Church We believe God’s command to be baptized by immersion and to celebrate communion. The church’s mission is to share the gospel, and its endeavors should be supported financially by the church’s members. About the Enemy We believe Satan is the author of sin and the declared enemy of God and man. He still works to destroy men, and all who don’t believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior will spend eternity separated from God.
