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
"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).
