We are a Christ-centered church located in Sanford, North Carolina. These basic beliefs represent what we hold to be essential elements of biblical teaching.
God – We believe God is the creator of all things and He exists eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 64:8; Matthew 28:19; John 16:7-15
Bible – We believe the Bible to be God’s Word with the purpose of showing us the way to Him by having a personal relationship with Jesus.
2 Timothy 3:15-17; 2 Peter 1:19-21
Sin and Salvation – We believe God created us to worship Him and live for Him. Any action that does not agree with God’s Word is sin, and sin separated us from God. That is why God sent his only son, Jesus, to die on the cross, so we can have an opportunity to invite Jesus into our hearts and lives through repentance and trusting in Jesus.
Romans 3:23; John 3:16
Church – We believe the church is where we can come together as fellow believers and worship God. We believe every believer should be active in a local church.
Discipleship – We believe every believer should continually grow in their faith and knowledge of Jesus. We believe every believer should be ready and willing to serve the Lord wherever He has called the believer to serve. The church can reach more people in the community with the gospel by serving together as one family.
Matthew 28:18-20; Philippians 2:5-7.
Baptism – We believe every person who has called upon Jesus as their personal Savior should be baptized by immersion.
