Mission Statement: 

Changing lives through the power of Christ.

Organizational Statement of Faith: 

We believe in the verbal inspiration of the Holy Scriptures. We believe the Old and New Testaments are fully inspired by God and are inerrant in the original writings. Further, we believe these same Scriptures are of supreme and final authority in matters of faith and practice.

We believe that within the nature of the one true God there exists three eternal persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, and is true God and true man.

We believe that man was created in the image of God, that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death which is separation from God and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature; that when they reach the state of moral responsibility, they practice sin before God in thought, word, and deed.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures as our substitutionary sacrifice and that all that believe in Him are justified on the grounds of His shed blood.

We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into heaven, and His present life there for us as High Priest and Advocate.

We believe in that blessed hope, the personal and imminent return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

We believe that all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ, are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God.

We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost.
