We believe the Scriptures, both
Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired Word of God, without error in the
original writings, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of
men, and the divine and final authority for all Christian faith and life.
We believe in one God, Creator of
all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons-Father,
Son, and Holy Spirit.
The Person and Work of Jesus
We believe that Jesus Christ is
God in the flesh, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the
virgin Mary. He is completely God and completely man. He lived a sinless life,
and he died on the cross as a sacrifice for our sins according to the
Scriptures. Further, He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, where
at the right hand of the Father, He now is our High Priest and Advocate.
The Holy Spirit
We believe that the ministry of
the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, and during this age to
convict men, give life to the believing sinner, indwell, guide, instruct and
empower the believer for godly living and service.
Man and Sin
We believe that man was created
in the image of God but fell into sin and is therefore separated from God both
physically and spiritually and only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can
salvation and spiritual life be obtained.
We believe in salvation by grace
through faith in Jesus Christ. That He paid for our sins, not based on human
merit, works, or religious ceremony. We believe that anyone who has placed
their faith in Christ is eternally secure, has everlasting life, will not come
into condemnation, and shall never perish. We believe that assurance comes to
the believer from three primary sources: trusting the Word of God’s promises,
the witness of the Holy Spirit, and a persevering walk with the Lord.
