We believe the Bible to be the infallible, verbally-inspired Word of God, inerrant in the original writings, and final authority for faith and practice (II Tim. 3:16-17; II Peter 1:20-21).
We believe in one triune God, eternally existing in three coequal Persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Deut. 6:4; II Cor. 13:14).
Person and Work of Christ
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man without ceasing to be God, having been conceived by the Holy spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. We believe that He accomplished our redemption through His death on the cross as our Substitute, and that our justification is made sure by His literal physical resurrection from the dead. We believe that He ascended to heaven and is now exalted at the right hand of God as our High Priest (John 1:14; Romans 3:24-25; Acts 1:9; I John 2:1-2).
Person and Work of the Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit convicts the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment; that He baptizes all believers into the Body of Christ, indwelling and sealing them unto the day of redemption; and that He is the Divine Teacher who guides believers into all truth (John 16:8-13; I Cor. 12:13).
We believe that salvation is the gift of God received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose precious blood was shed on Calvary for the forgiveness of sin. We believe that all those thus redeemed are kept by God’s power and are secure in Christ forever (I Peter 1:5,18,19).
We believe that the Church, the Body of Christ, is a spiritual organism made up of all born-again persons of the present age. We believe that the establishment and continuance of local bodies of believers is clearly taught and defined in the New Testament (I Cor. 12:12,14).
