We Believe


The fundamentals of what we believe can be summarized as follows:
A detailed copy of our “Articles of Faith” and our “Church Constitution” are available on request.

We believe that the Bible is God’s written Word. The Holy Scriptures are both infallible and inerrant in their original writings. The Bible is our final authority in all matters of faith and practice. 1 CORINTHIANS 2:13; 2 TIMOTHY 3:16-17; 2 PETER 1:20-21

We believe in the Triune Sovereign God: Father, His only begotten Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. All three are eternal in being, identical in nature, equal in power and glory, and having precisely the same attributes and perfections. DEUTERONOMY 6:4; 2:CORINTHIANS 13:14

We believe that Jesus Christ died for our sins as the only sufficient sacrifice, offering the atonement of sins for all people through his death, burial and resurrection" HEBREWS 9:14-28

We believe that salvation is the free gift of God offered to us by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and that this faith is shown in works pleasing to God. EPHESIANS 2:8-10; TITUS 2:11-14

We believe that Jesus Christ rose bodily from the grave, triumphing over death, assuring believers of their future resurrection (1 CORINTHIANS 15:1-20).

Sharing God's Word


Our pastor, David Christner, has a high view of God’s Word and preaches expository, verse by verse messages. We believe that the preaching ministry is of great importance because it is the announcement of God’s Word, His revelation to man.

Our Music


Our music style can best be described as “blended”. We sing primarily hymns, feeling that they capture the beauty of God’s Word, but we also like to incorporate newer songs that convey the theological depths of God’s Word as well. Our goal is to sing songs that reflect the truth of God’s Word accurately, however old or new.
