The Word of God
The Bible occupies a very important place in our Christian life. We encourage daily Bible reading, Bible Study and meditation on the Word.
Autonomy of Each Local Church
Christ is the recognized head of our church, not any person, group, or religious organization. While recognizing the value of fellowship with other Christian groups, we believe every local church should be self-governing and independent from any denominational control.
The Function of Every Believer in the Church
The Bible teaches that every Christian is called to ‘full time” Christian service, regardless of his or her vocation. We practice the truth that every believer should be encouraged to find a place of service and ministry. Every believer can function in the church by using the spiritual gift they received from the Lord.
Giving in Secret
We practice giving for the support of Christ’s body, the Church, as God commands. We recognize that giving 10% of our income is the biblical standard of giving.
Baptism by Immersion
We practice baptism by immersion under water—the way Jesus was baptized and the way the Bible commands.
We believe the only way possible to live the Christian life is by God’s power within us. So we seek to practice a daily dependence on God’s Spirit to enable us to do what is right.
Telling Others About Christ
It is the responsibility of every Christian to share the Good News with those whom God brings us into contact. We practice personal sharing about Christ and inviting friends to church meetings.
