Our message is that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God. We have no creed other than this.

We are a Church of Christ Jesus

Christ is the foundation, the head the Savior and Lord of His church, the one He promised to build (matthew 16:18). We are His church, sinners saved by grace. We are knit together by God's Spirit into "a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God" (1 Peter 2:9)

We are a Church Seeking Unity

As much as possible we are trying to follow the basic biblical principles of the apostles' teaching, fellowship, breaking of bread, and prayer (Acts 2:42). That is why our baptism is by immersion for the forgivieness of sins (Acts 2:38), our communion is every Lord's Day (Acts 20:7), our leaders are called elders (Titus 1:5-9), our preaching is about Christ (John 3:14-16), and our prayers are in Jesus' name (John 15:16). Like the earliest disciples who were called Christians first at Antioch (Acts 11:26), we use the name Christian.

We are a Free Church

Like the earliest churches, ours is an independent cangregation. We have no denominational headquarters to determine our policies. As a congregation, we elect our own leaders, select our ministers, decide what missions we will support, and in every way determine the direction of this church by seeking God's will.

We are a Restoration Church

God's goal is restoring people. He wants to restore our souls (psalm 23:3). He has left His church with the mission of leading others to Him through Christ (Matthew 28:18-20). As we are faithful in this ministry, "the God of all grace" promises to restore us and mke us "strong, firm, and steadfast" (1 Peter 5:10).

We are Not the Only Christians but Seek to Be Christians Only

It is our desire to speak where the Bible speaks, and be silent where the Bible is silent. We have no book but the Bible, no creed but Christ and no law but love.
