What We Believe
We believe that all scripture is inspired by God and that both the Old and New Testaments are inerrant in the original writings and are the supreme and final authority for faith and life.
(2 Tim. 3:15-16)
We believe that the Godhead exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and that these three persons are one God.
We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and his eternal existence as God; His incarnation and virgin birth; His death on the cross and the substitutionary atonement for sin; His literal bodily resurrection from the dead; and his present ministry of intercession in heaven.
(Luke 1:34-38; I Peter 3:18, Heb. 2:9, Romans 5:9, Acts. 2:23-24; Heb. 8:1; Matt. 26:64)
We believe that the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Godhead, convicts men of sin and regenerates, baptizes, indwells, seals, and sets apart believers into a holy life. We believe that the Holy Spirit also keeps and empowers believers day by day and that He is the teacher of the Word of God and the guide for daily living. We believe that all the gifts of the Holy Spirit as recorded in scripture are available for use by the church today.
(John 14:15-18, John 16:13; Acts 1:8; John 16:7-11; Romans 12:48, Eph. 4:11; I Cor. 12:1-31: 14:1-40)
We believe that man was created innocent and pure and Adam fell through the sin of disobedience. Therefore, all men are corrupted in body, soul, and spirit and all men need to be born again.
We believe that salvation is by grace, a free gift of God apart from works. Salvation is through personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and his blood shed on the cross for our sins. All who receive Jesus Christ are regenerated by the Holy Spirit and become children of God. True salvation will be manifested by a changed life.
(I Cor. 15:20-13; John 3:35-36)
We believe in the personal, visible, return of Jesus Christ to the earth; the bodily resurrection of the just to the eternal abode in the glory of God’s presence.
(Heb. 10:37; Luke 21:27; Titus 2:11-14)
We believe marriage is a covenant, a sacred bond between one man and one woman.
(Gen. 2:22-24; Matt. 19:4-6; Mark 10:6-9)
