What We Believe
We believe in the Holy Scriptures as originally given by God, divinely inspired, infallible, entirely trustworthy, and the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus Christ, the Son, is truly God and truly human. He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin, Mary. His sinless life, voluntary substitutionary death, shed blood, and bodily resurrection were necessary and sufficient for the redemption of man. He will visibly return to earth in glory to consummate His Kingdom.
We believe that man 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; and that all human beings are born in sin and this sinful nature is the origin of all sinful acts in thought, word, and deed.
We believe in the person of the Holy Spirit and his work of conviction, regeneration, and sanctification. He indwells every believer, equipping them with gifts for service and witness.
We believe that the Gospel should be proclaimed to every person on earth, and that the responsibility of all who hear the Gospel is to repent of their sins and rebellion against God, to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and receive justification and the forgiveness of sins.
We believe that the only way of salvation is by faith alone in Jesus Christ.
We believe the redeemed will be resurrected bodily to the everlasting presence and enjoyment of God, and the unredeemed will be resurrected to judgment and everlasting punishment.
We believe that the true Church is composed of all such persons who have trusted in Jesus Christ for the salvation and that their involvement in a local church is normative for a growing believer.
