Our Core Beliefs

Every tree needs roots to live and to grow. In 1955, our community of faith began its story beneath this oak tree. Our core beliefs form the roots that give us life.


“Remain in Me, and I in you. Just as a branch is unable to produce fruit by itself unless it remains on the vine, so neither can you unless you remain in Me.”

John 15:4 HCSB

We Believe…

… the Bible is the inerrant, inspired, and infallible Word of God. God’s Word is the final authority for faith and life. The Bible is the only source we use to define our beliefs.

… there is only one God, and He has chosen to reveal Himself as God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He has eternally existed as three co-equal persons that are the one God.

… man was created in the image of God and the sin of Adam (the first man) marred that image, creating an eternal divide between God and man. Every person is born in sin.

… the only way a person can have a true, forgiven relationship with God is through Jesus Christ’s sacrifice on the cross. Jesus was born of the Virgin Mary and conceived by the Holy Spirit. Jesus became man without ceasing to be God. Our right standing with God is made sure because of His literal, physical resurrection. … in the literal, physical return of Jesus to judge the living and the dead.

… God offers eternal life as a free gift to all who would believe in His Son, and that it must be received by faith alone through God’s grace alone. We must acknowledge our sin before God, believe that Jesus is His Son, and unconditionally surrender our lives to Him in order to receive this gift. The life that comes from this gift is a permanent possession of the one receiving it.
