WE BELIEVE

  • in the scriptures of the Old and New Testament as verbally inspired of God the sole authority for life and inerrant in the original writings.
  • in one God, eternally existing as three persons:  Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • the Father sovereignly directs the affairs of the universe and man.
  • Jesus Christ, conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, is both fully God and fully man.
  • the Holy Spirit glorifies Jesus Christ and indwells Christians, guiding, instructing and empowering them for godly living and effective service.
  • all men by nature and choice are sinners and are spiritually dead.  Those who repent of sin and trust in Jesus Christ as their Savior through faith alone, are rescued from the penalty and power of sin.
  • Jesus Christ died as a substitute for the penalty of our sins and that all who receive Him by faith are forgiven of sin and will be in God’s presence eternally.
  • all Christians are to live a righteous life of faith dedicated to glorifying and loving God, manifest through loving and serving others.
  • that the church is the spiritual body of believers of whom Christ is the Head which meets in local assemblies for worship, fellowship and instruction.
  • in two ordinances, believer’s baptism by immersion and the Lord’s Supper.
  • in the personal, pre-millennial and imminent coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
  • in the bodily resurrection of the saved and the lost; the saved destined to a literal heaven, and the lost to a literal hell.
