WE BELIEVE in the inerrancy of Scripture, that the Bible, Old and New Testaments, is the inspired, inerrant, infallible, authoritative Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16).
WE BELIEVE that there is one God, eternally existent in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19).
WE BELIEVE that God the Father is the personal, transcendent, and sovereign Creator of all things (Genesis 1:1f).
WE BELIEVE that Jesus Christ is fully God and fully human, that He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, provided for the atonement of our sins by His vicarious death on the Cross, was bodily resurrected by the power of the Holy Spirit, ascended back to the right hand of God the Father, and ever lives to make intercession for His Church. (Matthew 1:18; John 3:16; Acts 1:9, 11; 2:1-41; Hebrews 4:15; 1 Peter 3:18; and the Gospels).
WE BELIEVE in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, who came forth from the Father and the Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and the coming judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify, and empower for service all who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ.
WE BELIEVE that God created man in His own image, and man as he was originally created, was innocent before God. But man chose to sin by disobeying God, and therefore was alienated from his Creator and came under divine condemnation. Thus, all people are by nature lost and separated from God and responsible for their own sin, but that salvation, redemption, and forgiveness are freely offered to all by the grace of God through our Lord Jesus Christ. When a person places his/her faith in Christ as his/her Savior, that person is immediately born again, sealed by the Holy Spirit, forgiven of all his/her sins, and becomes a child of God, destined to spend eternity with the Lord (John 3:16-19; 5:24; Romans 5:8-9; Ephesians 1:13-14; 2:8-10; Titus 3:5). Men and women are freed from the penalty for their sins not as a result, in whole or in part, of their own works, goodness, or religious ceremony, but by the undeserved favor of God alone. God declares righteous all who put their faith in Christ alone for their salvation.
WE BELIEVE in the bodily resurrection of all man, the saved to eternal life, and the unsaved to eternal punishment (Matt. 25:46; John 5:28, 29; John 11:25, 26; Rev. 20:5,6,21,13).
