We believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old Testament and New Testament are the inerrant, inspired, and infallible Word of God. God’s Word is the final authority for faith and life.
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit.
We believe man was created in the image of God and the sin of Adam marred that image, creating an eternal divide between God and man. Every person is born in sin.
We believe the only way a person can have a true, forgiven relationship with God is through Jesus Christ’s sacrifice on the cross. Jesus was born of the Virgin Mary and conceived by the Holy Spirit. Jesus became man without ceasing to be God. Our right standing with God is made sure because of His literal, physical resurrection.
We believe God offers eternal life as a free gift and that it must be received by faith alone through God’s grace alone. The life that comes from this gift is a permanent possession of the one receiving it.
We believe in the gifts of the Spirit expressed in 1 Corinthians 12-14. The spiritual gifts (including speaking in tongues) are just as relevant today as they were when the early Church began.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
We believe the church of Jesus Christ is a local body of believers on mission to enlarge God’s kingdom.
We believe believer’s baptism and the Lord’s Supper are the two ordinances of the church.
We believe in the literal, physical return of Jesus to judge the living and the dead.
