We believe in the verbal inspiration and inerrancy of the Scriptures and the
authority of both the Old and New Testaments.
We believe that God eternally exists in three Persons—the Father, the Son and
the Holy Spirit-and that these three are one God, having the same nature,
attributes, and perfections, and worthy of the same worship, reverence and
We believe man was created in the image of God, but sinned and fell through
disobedience, and that the entire human race shares in man's lost and depraved
We believe Jesus, the eternal Son of God, took upon Himself the form of a man by
means of the virgin birth, lived a sinless life, yet retained His absolute
deity, being at the same time 100 percent God and 100 percent man.
Atonement for Sin
We believe that atonement for sin was made by the sacrificial and
substitutionary death of Jesus Christ.
We believe in the literal resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His
ascension into heaven, and His priestly intercession.
We believe salvation is the gift of God by grace alone and received by personal
faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and that this faith is manifested in works
pleasing to God.
The Holy Spirit
We believe the Holy Spirit is the Promise of the Father, the Comforter who
indwells and places every believer in the Body of Christ, bestows spiritual
gifts upon the Church and convicts the world of sin and the judgment to come.
Indwelling of the Spirit
While all believers are in-dwelt by the Spirit of God (Romans 8), we believe the
baptism of the Holy Spirit is a definite endowment of power for service and is
separate from conversion.
Ordinances of the Church
We believe that the ordinances of the church, by the command of Christ, are
Water Baptism by immersion and the Lord's Supper, both of which are administered to those who are born again.
We believe in the eternal salvation of the believers and in the eternal
damnation and punishment of the nonbelievers. We believe that the consummation of all things includes the visible, personal and glorious return of Jesus Christ the "Blessed Hope" of the Church.
