OUR BELIEFS

 
The Bible
     We believe that the Bible is God’s inspired Word. It is our guide in faith, in practice of life, and worship. In short, we believe the Bible and do our best to follow its teachings.
One God
     We believe there is One God, eternally existing as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Baptism
     We believe that baptism is necessary for forgiveness of sins and to become a disciple of Christ. We also believe that baptism is accomplished by fully immersing a person in water because every example of baptism in the Bible was done in that way. We also believe that baptism is for people who are mature enough to understand right from wrong and decide that they want to be followers of Christ.
Communion
     The Bible instructs us to meet on the first day of the week and take part in communion in remembrance of the sacrifice that Christ made for us on the cross to forgive us of our sins. We do this with unleavened bread as they did in the Bible and fruit of the vine (grape juice).
Singing
     The Bible instructs us to sing and make music in our heart. We do this by singing a Capella, (which means voices without other musical instruments). Our normal practice is to have one of the men be our song leader and songs may come from a song book, or may be projected up on the screen for easier viewing.
Prayer
     We believe that prayer is an important part of our relationship with God. We pray publicly during our services, and privately in our every-day lives.
