We believe that the Bible

is the Word of God, the record of God’s revelation of Himself to mankind, fully inspired by the Holy Spirit so that it contains truth without mixture of error, intended to testify of Christ and His redeeming work, and meant to be the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

We believe that there is only one living and true God.

He is the Creator of all things, infinite in holiness and all other perfections, eternally existing in three persons; that these three are equal in every divine perfection, and that they execute distinct but harmonious offices in the work of creation, providence and redemption.

We believe in God, the Father,

an infinite personal Spirit, who concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men. We believe that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.

We believe in Jesus Christ,

in whom the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily. We believe that He is God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles and teachings. We believe in His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, and ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, and future personal visible return to the earth.

We believe in the Holy Spirit

who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and to regenerate and sanctify all who believe in Jesus Christ. We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Christ, that He is an abiding helper, teacher and guide, and that He imparts spiritual gifts to believers for the benefit and edification of the church.

We believe that all men

are sinners by nature and therefore are under condemnation. Those who repent of their sins and trust in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord are saved by grace through faith. They are regenerated by the Holy Spirit.

We believe in the universal church,

a spiritual body made up of all regenerated persons of which Christ is the head. We believe in the local church, consisting of a body of believers in Jesus Christ who worship, serve, fellowship, and observe baptism and communion. We believe every believer should be identified with a local church. We believe God has given the members of the local church the primary task of making disciples and sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with a lost world.

We believe that Christians

live for the glory of God. Their conduct is to be blameless before the world. They should be faithful stewards of their possessions which involves seeking to “lay up treasure in heaven”; they should have concern for the spiritual, physical and social needs of others. They seek to realize for themselves and others full maturity in Christ.

We believe in the personal and visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ

to earth and the establishment of His kingdom. We believe in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment, the eternal joy and well being of the righteous in Christ, and the endless suffering of those without Christ.
