WHAT WE BELIEVE
WE SUM IT UP LIKE THIS
We are a Christian church. Our desire is to enjoy life in the body of Jesus to the fullest. This life is meant to be shared, as all good things are. But in order to share anything, you must know what it is you have to give. In that light we consider these to be the foundation stones of the life God offers in Jesus.
We believe that the Bible is the only infallible, final authority for all faith and practice.
We believe that every man, woman, and child is a sinner, having transgressed the high standards of God's character and moral law. Salvation, therefore, is only possible through faith in the life, death, burial, resurrection, ascension, and enthronement of Jesus Christ.
We believe that we can do nothing to earn God's favor: my new life in Jesus is nothing if not the free gift of God.
We believe that this grace only comes through faith in the work of Jesus: faith that my sins were covered on the cross; faith that Jesus' righteousness covers me.
We believe that all of life is to be lived for the glory of God alone, fully satisfied with all that He is, and all that He has done for me in Jesus.
We believe that all of life is lived in the presence of God: as a child of the Father, you have full and free access to the throne of grace.
A TRINITARIAN CHURCH
At TBC we exalt our Triune God above all else. We are defined by the love of the Father, the life of the Son, and the liberty of the Spirit. As members of the body of Jesus Christ, we are members one with another. As all things must be, this is a life founded on the living and active Word of God. The Bible rests as our foundation for worship and ministry, and is the cornerstone of all we do.
Our desire is to enjoy this body life to the fullest. That life is meant to be shared, as all good things are. We invite you to join us, even over the web, as we lift the name of Jesus on high and grow in grace and in dependence on our Triune God.
We stand joyfully with the company of all those who have gone before us in living faith in the One, only Triune God. With the historical Church of Jesus Christ, we stand on the Biblical Truths expressed in the NICENE CREED.
A REFORMATIONAL CHURCH
TBC is rooted to the rich theological heritage of the Protestant Reformation of the 16th & 17th Centuries, when God's people risked their lives standing firm for the sufficiency of His Word and the purity of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We exist to exalt and magnify Jesus in all of His sufficiency as our Savior and Lord, and to promote His sovereign grace and love to the world.
