Our Church's Mission Statement = "We Preach Christ Crucified!" 1 Corinthians 1:23

Preaches the Gospel
We believe... that our primary purpose is to proclaim the good news that sins are freely forgiven before God through Jesus' sacrificial death on the cross in our place. Our purpose is not to promote social or political causes. The Apostle Paul says in 1 Corinthians 9:16, "For if I preach the gospel, I have nothing to boast of, for necessity is laid upon me; yes, woe is me if I do not preach the gospel!"
Is Faithful to Scripture 
We believe... that the Bible is God's Word, therefore it contains no errors or "myths." We regard the Bible as the source of truth for all spiritual teachings (2 timothy 3:16-17). Why is this so important? 2 Timothy 4:2-5 says, "Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. 3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; 4 and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. 5 But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry."
Is Honest About Sin 
We believe... that, by nature, all people are sinful and would be eternally lost without faith in Christ. We preach repentance of sins and forgiveness through Jesus, not the mere removal of "guilt feelings." Romans 6:23 is clear, "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Clings to Christ 
We believe... that faith in Jesus is the sure way to heaven. Good works, prayer, and holiness of life are the results of faith in Christ, but never the cause of faith or salvation. Jesus says this in John 14:6, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me."
