We believe that all who are united to the risen and ascended Son of God are
members of the church, which is the body of Christ universally and locally (Eph. 1:15-23).

We believe that the church as a group, gathers together for practical instruction in the Scriptures, fellowship with God and with other believers, and for corporate witness to the unsaved world. Our common spiritual goal is to grow toward Christ’s likeness (Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 2:42; Ephesians 2:11-18, 4:13-16).

We believe that the explicit message of our Lord Jesus Christ to those whom He has saved is to make Him known to the whole world and that is the focus of the church as individuals (Rom. 1:16, 17; 1Cor. 1:18-25).

We believe the primary purpose of the church is to glorify the character attributes and perfection of God (Rom. 5:1, 2; 1Cor. 10:31; 2Cor. 3:18; Gal. 1:3-5; Eph. 1:6, 12, 14; Phil. 1:11; Col. 1:27; 1Thess. 2:12; 2Thess. 2:14; 1Tim. 1:17; 2Tim. 4:18; Heb. 13:21; 1Pet. 1:6-8, 4:11; 2Pet. 3:18; Jude 1:24, 25; Rev. 1:6).

We believe Jesus gave gifts to the church (Eph. 4:11) to equip the body to help each other grow, resist false doctrine, and speak the truth in love (Eph. 4:12-15).

We believe through what He supplies to each of us, we do our share for all of us (Eph. 4:16).

We believe in the biblical structure of servant leadership (Exodus 18:13-27; Acts 6:1-7; 1Timothy 2:8-3:16; Titus 1:1-16; Hebrews 13:7 & 17).

We believe that church discipline must be applied in cases where a believer fails to maintain holiness and unity within the local assembly (Matt. 18:15-20; 1Cor. 5; Titus 3:9-11).
