WHAT WE BELIEVE

We affirm our confidence in the Bible, consisting of the Old and New Testaments, as the verbally inspired Word of God without error in the original manuscripts and the supreme and final authority for faith and life.

GOD

We believe that the Scripture teaches that there is only one true living God, Creator of all things and eternally existing in three manifestations: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

JESUS CHRIST

We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His death to pay the penalty for our sins, His bodily resurrection, and His exaltation at God’s right hand where he serves as our high priest and advocate.

THE HOLY SPIRIT

We believe in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling will enable the Christian to live a holy life. The ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ and to convict men of sin and regenerate the believing sinner.

FUTURE EVENTS

We believe that all mankind is subject to the death of the body as a result of original sin. The soul and the spirit do not die, but immediately after death enter into a conscious state of happiness or misery according to rejection or acceptance of the Savior. We believe in the bodily resurrection of both the saved and the lost; the saved to everlasting life and the lost without Christ to everlasting damnation.

MAN

We believe that man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and is therefore in need of redemption, and only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained.

SALVATION

We believe that the shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe, and only such as receive Jesus Christ by faith are born of the Holy Spirit and thus become children of God.

THE RETURN OF JESUS CHRIST

We believe in the personal, imminent return of our Lord Jesus Christ.

SPIRITUAL GIFTS

We believe in Jesus Christ as the sovereign giver of spiritual gifts to the church. We believe spiritual gifts are given for the perfecting of the Saints, for the work of the ministry, and for the edification of the body of Christ.
