What We Believe We believe in the triune God who has revealed Himself to mankind through the inspired Scriptures;
We have experienced the spiritual birth through faith in Christ and acclaim Him as our Lord and Savior;
We cherish the Scriptures as sole and authoritative guide for our faith and conduct, the Holy Spirit being our interpreter and advocate;
We enjoy personal access to God through our Lord Jesus Christ and devote ourselves to the ministry of the priesthood of the believer;
We affirm the Church to be a fellowship of believers who have experienced spiritual birth and have been baptized in accordance with New Testament teaching, celebrating the Lord's Supper as a memorial until He comes again;
We minister to the Church by the gifts of God's grace and direct her action prayerfully and democratically;
We hold ourselves responsible and accountable to God as well as to man, carrying out the Great Commission of Jesus Christ and respond in Christian love to the needs of man and society;
We foster the fellowship of like-minded churches and participate in the larger tasks of Christ's mission to reach those who are without the knowledge of the Gospel;
We avow the liberty of each Christian believer and safeguard the separation of church and state;
We believe that God has not left Himself unattested and, therefore, seek religious freedom for all persons everywhere.
