We are a Church that believes in Jesus & loves God & people

We believe that the Bible is God’s holy and perfect word (2 Timothy 3:16; Proverbs 30:5) and that is the guide by which we live.
 
We believe all people are sinful (Psalm 51:5; Romans 3:23) and, therefore, we deserve to suffer the eternal consequences of our sins (Romans 6:23).
 
We also believe the the Triune God loves us and he doesn’t want us to suffer, but rather to know Jesus as our Savior through faith (1 Timothy 2:3,4). This faith is not something we can earn, but rather it is a gift from God (Ephesians 2:8,9) through which he freely offers forgiveness of sins and eternal life to all who believe.
