WHO WE ARE
BUILDING SOLID LIVES
"Whoever comes to Me, and hears My sayings and does them, I will show you whom he is like: He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently against that house, and could not shake it, for it was founded on the rock."

(John 3:16; Romans 5:8)
Salvation Through Grace

(Revelation 20:10, 15)

(II Corinthians 5:17; Galatians 2:20)
We believe that all new believers should be baptized in water to publicly announce their new faith in Jesus Christ.
Daily Christian Life
We believe that God expects and Christians should desire to live in obedience to God's Word.
The Lord's Supper/Communion
We believe that Christians should partake of bread and grape juice as symbols, to remember what Christ accomplished for them on the cross.
