We believe that the Bible is the inspired, only infallible, authoritative Word of God. It is the supreme and final authority for faith and practice. We believe in one God, eternally existing in three Persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, who are of one substance and equal in power and glory. We believe that Jesus Christ, the second Person of the Trinity, was both fully man and fully God. We believe in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. We believe that man was created in the image of God, sinned, and thereby incurred both physical and spiritual death, which is separation from God.
We believe that salvation is a free gift of God and is received by grace alone and faith alone – that genuine faith always leads us to do good works. We believe we are saved by repentance of our sin and making a decision to receive Jesus Christ as Savior (Jesus Christ saved us from sin by dying on the cross for our sins) and Lord (Jesus Christ takes first priority in all the areas of our lives). We believe in the importance of Water Baptism as obedience to Jesus’ teaching and a recognizable step in our willingness to serve Christ.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life, and be empowered to operate in the various Gifts of the Spirit to accomplish God’s Purpose here on earth. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; those who are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of condemnation.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Head of the Church. The Church is comprised of the universal church and local church. The universal church is the worldwide body of believers. The local church is a specific body of believers established for worship, instruction, fellowship and expression of our faith.
