We believe the Bible is the word of God, breathed out by the Holy Spirit and recorded through human authors. The truth of Scripture harmoniously agrees with itself from beginning to end, and is without error as it was originally written. Scripture is sufficient for all we need to know, and is the supreme authority for all of life.
We believe there is one God, existing in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Each person is fully God. God is the Creator and Designer of the universe and life. He is eternal, all-powerful, all-wise, and all-good.
We believe the Holy Spirit is a Divine Person, not an impersonal force. He seals each believer for salvation at the moment of true faith, indwells believers, and leads and empowers believers for lives of ministry.
We believe Jesus is both fully God (uncreated, eternal, all-powerful, all-wise, all-good), and fully man, being born of a virgin, indwelled by the Holy Spirit, descended from David, and living a perfectly righteous life.
We believe the Lord Jesus Christ died an atoning sacrifice for our sins on the cross, and by His blood He washes us clean, giving us His righteousness and obtaining for us eternal redemption.
We believe that after Jesus died, He was buried in a tomb and remained there for three days, but on the third day He rose, leaving the tomb empty. Over the next forty days He appeared first to a group of women, then His apostles, and then to more than 500 eyewitnesses, before He ascended into heaven, and in heaven He lives as our High Priest and Advocate.
Condition of Mankind
We believe that mankind is made in the image of God, but is now corrupted through sin and is totally depraved, and in the necessity of regeneration, being born again of the Spirit.
We believe that salvation is the free gift of God, entirely apart from our works or goodness, and is possessed permanently by all who have by faith received the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior. However, true salvation will always produce fruit in a person’s life, which we can look to for assurance.
We believe in the personal, imminent return of our Lord Jesus Christ, and that no one knows the day or the hour when He will return.
