What We Believe

It is our intent and purpose to be New Testament Christians and a congregation of the Lord’s church — nothing more, nothing less. There are many names and creeds in the religious world that have arisen over the years since the New Testament. We want to follow only Christ, accept no authority but the Bible, and wear no name but Christian. We believe that when we follow the Bible only, we will be Christians only.

This does not mean that we are perfect people. We have shortcomings and faults as everyone does but we want to do better. We don’t know everything. We want to treat others as we should, and we are trying to improve on this by following the example of Christ. We haven’t arrived — we are just on the journey.

We are a diverse group of people coming from varied backgrounds and at different stages of knowledge and spiritual growth. We are brought together by our recognition that we are sinners and in need of the cleansing blood of Jesus Christ (Mark 2:17; Romans 5:6-9; Ephesians 1:7). That is the reason we can worship together, stick together and, with God’s help, accomplish some things that make a difference. You will find us to be a people who love God, love his son Jesus, love His Word the Bible, and love all people. Above all, we wish to obey God in all things and reflect His love to all mankind.
