In essential beliefs — we have unity.
There is one Body and one Spirit; there is one Lord, one faith, one baptism, and one God and Father of us all.
In non-essential beliefs — we have liberty.
Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters… So then each of us will give an account of himself to God…. So whatever you believe abut these things keep between yourself and God.
In all of our beliefs — we show love.
If I have the, gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains but have not love, I am nothing…
1 Cor. 13:2
The Bible as our Sole Authority
God’s Word is the only completely reliable and truthful authority,therefore, we accept the Bible as our manual for living.
Autonomy of the Local Church
Christ is the recognized head of our church, not any person,group, or religious organization. While recognizing the value of associating and cooperating with other groups of Christians, we believe every local church should be self-governing and independent from any hierarchal control.
Priesthood of Every Beliefer
The Bible teaches that every Christian is called to “full time” Christian service, regardless of his or her vocation. We practice the truth that every believer is a minister by encouraging every member to find a place of service and ministry. Every believer has direct access to God through daily prayer and Bible reading.
Spirit Lead Living
We believe the only way possible to live the Christian life is by God’s power within us. So we seek to practice a daily dependence on God’s Spirit to enable us to do what is right.
Baptism through Full Immersion
We practice believer’s baptism in water through full immersion — the way Jesus was baptized and the way the Bible commands.
