• We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God, embracing not only religious truth, but also the Bible’s scientific, historical and literary features. (2 Timothy 3:15, 2 Peter 1:21)
  • We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1, Matthew 28:19, John 10:30)
  • We believe that creation was an act of God. (Genesis 1-2:7, John 1:3, 1 Corinthians 15:45-49)
  • We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, 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. (John 10:30-33, Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:35, Hebrews 4:15, Hebrews 7:26, 1 Corinthians 15:3, Ephesians 1:7, Hebrews 2:9, John 11:25, 1 Corinthians 15:4, Mark 16:19, Acts 1:11, Revelations 19:11)

  • We believe that salvation is by grace through faith alone in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and not as a result of works. Faith that leads to salvation is evidenced by good works. Therefore, we believe that those who have repented of sin and have received by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again and shall be saved. (Ephesians 2:8-9, James 2:14-18, Acts 2:38, Acts 4:12, John 1:12, John 3:3)
  • We believe in the Holy Spirit who came forth from God to convict the world of guilt in regard to sin and righteousness and judgment.

  • We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost – that they are saved to the resurrection of life or lost to the resurrection of damnation. (John 5:28-29)
