What We Believe

  1. There is one God, who exists eternally in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit — the Trinity.
  2. Jesus Christ is 100% God and 100% man. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary.
  3. Jesus Christ died for our sins, rose bodily from the dead, ascended to Heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the Father as our great High Priest. And He shall return to this Earth as Judge of the living and the dead, and to establish His kingdom of righteousness and peace.
  4. The Holy Spirit is God, a divine person of the Trinity who was sent to indwell, guide, teach, empower the believer to produce the fruits of righteousness, and to convince the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgment.
  5. All of Scripture, the Old and the New Testaments, are inerrant as originally given, were verbally inspired by God, and are a complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men. They constitute the divine and only rule of Christian practice and faith.
  6. Man was originally created perfect in the image and likeness of God. But he fell through disobedience, incurring thereby both physical and spiritual death. All mankind are born sinners, are separated from the life of God, and can be saved only through the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ. The prospect of the impenitent and unbelieving person is existence forever in conscious torment in Hell, and that of the believer in Christ, is to have everlasting joy and bliss in the presence of God.
  7. Salvation is a gift received by faith alone in the Lord Jesus Christ, and expressed in the individual’s repentance, recognition of the death of Christ as full payment for sin, and acceptance of the risen Christ as Savior, Lord and God.
  8. It is the will of God that each believer should be filled with the Holy Spirit, and being consecrated in every respect, being separated from sin and the world and fully dedicated to the will of God, thereby receiving power for holy living and effective service. This is both a crisis and a progressive experience produced in the life of the believer following conversion.
  9. The universal church consists of all those who have received the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior, are redeemed through His shed blood and born again of the Holy Spirit. Christ is the Head of the Body, the Church, which has been commissioned to fulfill the Great Commission by declaring the Good News of salvation through Jesus Christ to all nations.
  10. The local church is a body of believers in Christ who are joined together for the worship of God, teaching through the Word of God to become disciple makers to help fulfill the Great Commission, prayer, fellowship, the proclamation of the gospel, and observance of the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
  11. There shall be bodily resurrection of the just and of the unjust; for the just, a resurrection unto life; for the unjust, a resurrection unto judgment.
  12. The second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ is imminent and will be personal and visible. This is the believer’s blessed hope and is a vital truth which is a motivation to holy living and faithful service.
