WHAT DO WE BELIEVE?
We believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three Persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory; that this triune God created all, and governs all.
We believe in God the Father, an infinite, personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love; that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men, 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, God’s only begotten Son, God incarnate, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, and teachings, His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, and personal, visible return to 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, sanctify and empower for ministry all who believe in Jesus Christ; we believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ and that He is an abiding Helper, Teacher and Guide.
We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, fully inspired without error in the original manuscripts, and that they alone are the infallible rule of faith and practice.
We believe that all men are sinners by nature and choice, and therefore, under condemnation and that God regenerates by the Holy Spirit those who repent of their sins and confess Jesus Christ as Lord.
We believe in the universal Church, the living spiritual body, of which Christ is the Head and all regenerated persons are members.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ committed two ordinances to the Church; (1) Baptism, according to individual spiritual conviction; and (2) the Lord’s Supper, open to all believers.
We believe in the personal, visible return of Christ to earth, in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment, and eternal blessing of the righteous and endless suffering of the wicked.
