1. The Word of God – The Bible
We believe the Bible is the verbally inspired Word of God, without error and infallible in the original manuscripts. We believe the Bible is the final authority in faith and life of the Christian.
We believe there is one God, existing eternally in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and possessing the same attributes and perfections.
3. Jesus Christ
We believe that Jesus Christ is true God and true man. We believe in: His virgin birth; His sinless life; His miracles; His vicarious and atoning death; His resurrection; His ascension to the right hand of the Father.
We believe in the certainty of the personal and imminent return of Christ. At His return He will fulfill all prophecies made concerning His final and complete triumph over evil.
4. Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit, the Third Person of the Trinity, dwells in every true believer. We believe that the Holy Spirit seals and indwells every believer, spiritually uniting them with one another. We believe the Holy Spirit came to convict the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgment.
We believe the Holy Spirit enables the trusting, obedient believer to live a godly life and continues to endow believers with gifts for the purpose of building up the body, for the common good, just as He wills.
5. The Condition of Man
We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, in innocence, and without sin. In Adams’s sin humanity fell, inherited a sinful nature, became spiritually dead and alienated from God. We believe that, within himself, man is incapable of redeeming himself from his lost and depraved condition.
6. The Work of Jesus Christ
We believe that God’s eternal Son, Jesus Christ, became man, without ceasing to be God, in order to reveal God and redeem sinful man. We believe Christ voluntarily offered Himself as our sacrificial substitute on the cross, satisfying God’s righteous judgment against sin. We believe God’s only provision for our sin is Christ’s death on our behalf, through which God reconciles us to Himself.
We believe that salvation from the penalty of sin is a gift of God’s grace, cannot be gained by any work, and is provided on the single ground of faith in Christ’s work on the cross. All who trust Christ in this way are forgiven of their sins and are born again into God’s family by the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit.
8. The Church
We believe that the church, called in Scripture the Body of Christ, is a spiritual organism and that every true believer is a member of His Body. We also believe that Scripture affirms the establishment and continuation of local churches, groups of Christian believers called together for worship, for edification through the word of God, for prayer, fellowship, the proclamation of the Gospel and observation of the ordinances of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper and service.
9. Eternal State
We believe that at the moment of death, the souls of all who trust in Christ for salvation immediately enter Christ’s presence, awaiting the resurrection of life. We believe that at death the souls of all who do not trust Christ for salvation immediately enter into conscious separation from God, awaiting the resurrection of judgment and condemnation, the eternal consequence of unbelief.
To reach and win people, develop them to Christ-like maturity, and equip them for a meaningful ministry in the church and a life mission in the world in order to magnify God.
