We believe the Bible is the inspired and only infallible Word of God. The divine inspiration and infallibility of Holy Scripture as originally given, and its supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct. II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20,21; Mark 13:31; John 8:31,32; John 20:31; Acts 20:32
We believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons; that these are equal in divine perfection, and that they execute distinct but harmonious roles in the work of creation, providence and redemption. Genesis 1:1,26; John 1:1,3; Matthew 28:19; John 4:24; Romans 1:19,20; Ephesians 4:5,6
We believe in God the Father, an infinite, personal spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love. We believe that He infallibly foreknows all that shall come to pass, that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men, that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ. Luke 10:21,22; Matthew 23:9; John 3:16; 6:27; Romans 1:7; I Timothy 1:1,2; 2:5,6; I Peter 1:3; Revelation 1:6
We believe in the full deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, the incarnate Son of God, His virgin birth and his real and sinless humanity. We believe in His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, continuous intercession for His people, and personal visible return to earth. Matthew 1:18-25; Luke 1:26-38; John 1:1; 20:28; Romans 9:5; 8:46; II Corinthians 5:21; I Peter 2:21-23; John 20:30, 31; Matthew 20:28; Ephesians 1:4; Acts 1:11; Romans 5:6-8; 6:9,10; Hebrews 7:25; Hebrews 9:28; I Timothy 3:16
We believe in the Holy Spirit who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify, and empower all who believe in Jesus Christ. We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Christ, and that He is an abiding helper, teacher and guide. We believe for the need for the Holy Spirit to make the work of Christ effective to individual sinners, granting them repentance toward God and faith in Jesus Christ. Regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely vital to personal salvation. We believe in the full operation of the gifts of the blessed Holy Spirit as promised by the Lord Jesus Christ functioning in the Body of Christ. John 14:16,17,26; 15:26,27; John 16:9-14; Romans 8:9; I Corinthians 3:16; 6:19; Galatians 5:22-26
We believe in the universal sinfulness and guilt of human nature since the fall, rendering everyone subject to God’s wrath and condemnation.
We believe in the redemption from the guilt, penalty and power of sin only through the sacrificial death once and for all time of our representative and substitute The Lord Jesus Christ the only mediator between God and humanity.
We believe that justification is God’s act of undeserved mercy, in which sinners are pardoned all their sins and accepted as righteous in God’s sight, only because of the righteousness of Christ imputed to them, this justification being received by faith alone.
We believe in the one holy universal church is the Body of Christ, and to which all true believers belong.
We believe in the future personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ who will judge everyone executing God’s just condemnation on the impenitent and receiving the redeemed to eternal glory.
We believe that Marriage is God-ordained. “The creator made them male and female, and said, “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh” (Matthew 19:4-5). Marriage is to be an exclusive relationship, a lifelong faithful union between a man and a woman. This relationship between a husband and wife should parallel the relationship between Christ and the Church (Ephesians 5:23-30).
We practice two ordinances: (1) Water Baptism by immersion after repenting of one’s sins and receiving the gift of salvation. And (2) Holy Communion (the Lord’s Supper) as a symbolic remembrance of Christ’s suffering and death for our salvation.
