As Christians, we simply gather in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ alone, and have no
denominational affiliation. (1 Co. 1:9-10)
We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16) in which He has
revealed Himself to His creatures. (Hebrews 4:12-13)
We believe that all need a Savior and that the Bible presents the Savior, the Lord Jesus
Christ, who made perfect atonement for our sins on the cross of Calvary. (Romans 3:23,
Acts 13:38-39, 1John 5:12-13). Further, we believe that all who accept the Gospel are
"born again" (1 Peter 1:23), sealed with the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 1:13), and members of
the body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:12-13).
We believe in the Lord's coming for His bride, the Church, which may occur at any moment
(1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, Ephesians 5:25-27). In view of this blessed home, (Titus 2:13),
we further believe that the greatest need in the world today is a return to the Word of God
through which alone can come spiritual awakening (Hebrews 4:12).
"Then those who gladly received His word were baptized...and they continued steadfastly
in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers and the
Lord added to the Church daily those who were being saved." (Acts 2:42-43, 47).
