We believe that the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, is the complete and revealed Word of God, fully inspired by God and without error in the original writings, and that it has supreme authority in all matters of faith and practice.
GOD THE FATHER
We believe in God the Father, an infinite personal spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love. We believe that He is intimately involved in the affairs of mankind, that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.
We believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. These are equal in every divine perfection and perform distinct, but harmonious functions in creation, redemption and providence.
We believe that Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man, God's only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, and His personal and visible return for His people.
THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe in the Holy Spirit who came from the Father and the 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 at the moment of salvation and that He is an abiding helper, teacher and guide.
We believe mankind was created in the image of God; that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death--which is separation from God; that all human beings are born with a sinful nature, under the judgment of God, sinners in thought, word and deed; whose only hope of salvation is through the finished work of Jesus Christ.
We believe that Christ-followers should love the Lord God with all their heart, soul, mind and strength, and live for the glory of God and the well-being of others; that their conduct should be blameless before the world; that they should be faithful stewards of their possessions; that their goal should be the glory of God and full maturity in the stature of Jesus Christ.
We believe in the universal church, a living spiritual body of which Christ is the head, composed of people, who, through faith in Jesus Christ, have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit. We believe in the local church, whose membership consists of a company of believers in Jesus Christ, and who are associated for worship, Bible study, prayer, the ordinances, fellowship, and evangelism of a lost world.
We believe that the only way of salvation for sinners is by "grace alone, through faith alone in Christ alone;" made possible by the substitutionary death of the Son of God, who, having shed His precious blood on the cross, arose bodily from the grave and ascended to reign in heaven. All must come to recognize that their sin has put them under the judgment of God and that all who place their faith in the death, burial and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ as the only payment for their sin are justified, their sin is pardoned, and the perfect righteousness of Christ is imputed to them.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ has given two ordinances to the church to be observed until the return of Jesus: baptism by immersion and the Lord's Supper. Through baptism, followers of Jesus Christ declare their new life and identity with Christ. In the Lord's Supper, believers are dramatically reminded of the sacrifice of Christ for our sin. We believe that these two ordinances are not means for salvation, but rather the act of those who have already received salvation in Jesus Christ.
THE LAST THINGS
We believe in the personal and pre-millennial return of our Lord Jesus Christ to earth. We believe His coming to be visible for the establishment of His Kingdom. We believe in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment, the endless suffering of the wicked, and the eternal blessedness of the believer.
