WE BELIEVE . . . that the Bible is the inspired Word of God and without mistakes as originally written in Hebrew and Greek. It is the absolute revelation of His will for salvation and the only rule of faith and practice for the Christian life. (2 Peter 1:20-21, Matthew 5:18; 2 Timothy 3:16).
WE BELIEVE . . . in one God, Creator of all things, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and that these three are co-eternal and of equal dignity and power. (Isaiah 45:5-7; Genesis 1:1-31; Ephesians 3:9; 2 Corinthians 13:14)
WE BELIEVE . . . in the deity of Jesus Christ; His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit; His virgin birth; His sinless life; His substitutionary death on a cross; His bodily resurrection; His ascension to the right hand of the Father; and His personal, imminent return. (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23, 25; Luke 1:26-35; Romans 3:21-26; 1 Peter 2:24; Colossians 1:15-17; Romans 6:5-10; Acts 1:9-11; I Corinthians 15:1-8)
WE BELIEVE . . . that man was created by and for God; that by man's disobeying God, every person incurred spiritual death, which is separation from God, and physical death as a consequence; and that all people are sinners by nature and practice outside of a relationship with Christ. (Genesis 2:7, 15-25; Genesis 3:1-7; Romans 3:23, 6:23)
WE BELIEVE . . . the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins and that all who believe in Him are declared righteous because of His sacrificial death and are, therefore, in the right relationship with God. Those accepting Christ should repent of sin, confess their faith and be baptized by immersion into Him. (Romans 10:9-10, Acts 2:38, John 3:16-17, I Corinthians 12:13)
WE BELIEVE . . . in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit indwelling all believers and thus enabling and empowering the life and ministry of the believer. By obedience to the Word of God and daily yielding to the Holy Spirit, every believer should mature and be conformed to the image of Christ. (Galatians 5:16-25, 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, Romans 12:1-2)
WE BELIEVE. . . in the bodily resurrection of everyone who has lived, the everlasting blessedness of those in right relationship with God, and the everlasting punishment of those who have rejected God's forgiveness in His Son. (1 Corinthians 15:12-58; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, Matthew 25:31-46)
WE BELIEVE… that the church is the body of Christ, of which Jesus Christ is the head. The members of the church are those who have trusted by faith the finished work of Christ. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by loving him and by making him known to the lost world. (Colossians 1:15-20; Ephesians 4:11-16, 5:23)
