We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, inerrant, authoritative Word of God (Psalm 119:105 & 160; Proverbs 30:5; II Timothy 1:13, 3:16; Hebrews 4:12; II Peter 1:20-21).
We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons. The eternal God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being. He is intelligent, spiritual, and a personal Being, the Creator, the Sole Redeemer of man, the Preserver, and the Ruler of the universe. God as Father reigns with providential care over His universe, His creatures, according to the purposes of His grace. He is all-powerful, all-loving, and all wise (Genesis 1:1, 26-27; Psalm 90:2; Isaiah 26:8; Acts 17:2-34; II Corinthians 13:14; I Peter 1:2).
We believe in the complete deity and humanity of 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, in His present rule as Head of the Church and in His personal return in power and glory (Isaiah 9:6; Matthew 1:22-23; John 1:1-14; Acts 1:9-11; Romans 1:3-4; I Corinthians 15:3-4; I Timothy 6:14-15; Titus 2:13; Hebrews 4:14-15).
We believe salvation involves the redemption of the whole man and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior by faith, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer. In its broadest sense, salvation includes regeneration, sanctification, and glorification (John 1:12, 14:6; Romans 5:1, 6:23; Galatians 3:36; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5).
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. The Holy Spirit acts in complete unity of the Trinity without division from the Father and the Son (John 16:7-14, 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; I Corinthians 2:12, 3:16; II Corinthians 3:17; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 1:13, 5:18; 1 Corinthians 12:4,11-14,18).
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation (Matthew 24:27, 30, 36, &44, 25:31-46; I Thessalonians 4:14-18, 5:1; II Peter 3:7; Revelation 1:18, 3:11, 20:1-22:13).
Unity of Believers
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (Ephesians 2:11-22).
