We believe and teach that the Bible is the infallible word of God and is the foundation that the church is built on. We do not have a denominational structure and are under the oversight of local elders. We do not promote ourselves as being “the only Christians” but rather “Christians only” and “In essentials unity, in non-essentials liberty, and in all things love."
Jesus Christ is the one and only Son of God who died for our sins and arose from the dead. (1 Corinthians 15:1-8)
JESUS IS THE CHRIST
That the Bible is the inspired word of God. (2 Timothy 3.16)
THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED
ALL HAVE SINNED
That every person has worth as a creation of God but that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.(Romans 3:23)
We have a set list of statements we believe based on the Bible. We hold these things close to us with a closed hand. They are truths that we believe and will not budge on them as they are foundational to our faith. The list of "Closed Hand" items are listed below.
We all have things that we believe about Christianity that fall into the area of opinion. Each one of our journeys has allowed us to own our faith and that is okay and right. We hold these things of opinion with an open hand. We will not fight about things that are "Open Hand" issues.
