We believe that the Holy Bible is the Word of God, written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and that it is the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct. (Mk. 12:26-36; 1 Cor. 2:13; 2 Tim. 3:16-17; 2 Pet. 1:21).
We believe in one God, eternally existing in three equal persons: God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ), and God the Holy Spirit. We believe that they execute distinct but harmonious offices in the work of creation, providence, and redemption. (Gen. 1:26; Matt. 28:19-21; 2 Cor. 13:14; Heb. 1:1-3).
We believe in God the Father, the infinite, personal spirit, perfect in every respect including (but not limited to): holiness, wisdom, power and love. We believe that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of all people, that He hears and answers prayer, and that He gives, by grace, salvation from sin and eternal death to all who come to Him through faith in Jesus Christ apart from works. (Rev. 4: 8-11; Lk. 18:1-8; Jn. 5:24; Eph. 2: 8-9).
We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, miracles and teachings, and that He lived a sinless life. We believe in His substitutional atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, intercession for His people, and His imminent return. We believe Jesus Christ to be the only mediator between God and man. (Matt. 1:18-23; Jn. 5:37; Acts 1:11; 17: 2-3; 28:23, 1Tim. 2:5).
We believe in the Holy Spirit, who proceeds forth from the Father and the Son (Jesus Christ) to reprove the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment. He regenerates, sanctifies and empowers all who believe in Jesus Christ. We believe that the Holy Spirit dwells within every believer in Christ and that He is an abiding helper, teacher and guide. (Jn. 7:14; 14:16-17; 15:3-15; Acts 1:8; 2:1-4).
We believe that all people are sinners by nature and by choice, and are, therefore, under eternal condemnation. We believe that those who repent of their sins and trust in Jesus Christ are regenerated by the Holy Spirit. (Jn. 5:40; 1 Tim. 5:6; Rom. 5:12-19; Eph. 1:13; 2:8-9).
We believe in His church as a living, spiritual body, of which Christ is the Head, and that all who have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit are members. We believe in the local church consisting of a company of believers in Jesus Christ, who are associated for celebration, community, edification, evangelism, prayer and stewardship. (1 Cor. 12:12-27; Jn. 4:23; Heb. 10:24-25; Matt. 4:11-13; Rom. 10:13-15; Acts 2:42; 1 Tim. 6:17-19).
We believe that a Christian should live for the glory of God and the well being of others, that one should be a faithful steward, that one should seek to realize for oneself and others the full stature of maturity in Christ, and that one should be committed to obeying the Holy Bible. (1 Cor. 6:12-18; Lk. 19:11-27; Jn. 14:15; Col. 1: 28-29; 2 Tim. 3:16).
We believe in the personal, physical return of Jesus Christ and the establishment of His kingdom. We believe in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment, the everlasting blessedness of the righteous, and the everlasting punishment of the unrighteous. (1 Thess. 4:13-18; Jn. 5:24; Rev. 20:11-15).
We believe in the biblical account of creation and that man came by direct creation of God. (Gen. 1:1-2)
