What We Believe

ONE TRUE GOD

We believe the one true God has revealed Himself the eternally self-existent "I AM", the creator of Heaven and Earth.  Genesis 1:1; Exodus 3:14; Isaiah 43:10 - 11

THE LORD JESUS CHRIST

We believe that Jesus Christ is the "Image of the invisible God" and that in Him "all deity dwells in bodily form." We believe in His virgin birth, His sinless life, His death on the cross as the substitutionary atonement for sin, His literal bodily resurrection from the dead, His present ministry of intercession in Heaven, and His personal future return to the earth.

Colossians 1:15-22; I Thessalonians 4:16; 1 Peter 3:18

THE HOLY SPIRIT

We believe the Holy Spirit convicts men of sin and regenerates, indwells, seals, sets apart, and empowers believers for service and for holy living and a holy life. We believe that "God is at work within us both to will and work to His good pleasure" and that "He will continue to perfect us until the day of Christ Jesus."

John 14:16; Romans 8:14, 16; Ephesians 1:13; Philippians 1:6; Philippians 2:13

THE GODHEAD

We believe in the unity and trinity of the Godhead existing in three persons: The Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit. These three persons are One God having the same nature, attributes, and perfection.

Genesis 1:26; John 1:14, 15:26, 17:21; Ephesians 4:4-6

 

MAN

We believe that man was created in the image of God but was separated from God by sin and shall be judged; and that only through the Blood of Christ and regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained.

Genesis 1:27; Genesis 2:22; Romans 3:23; Hebrews 9:27; Romans 5:12

 

SALVATION

We believe in salvation by grace, a free gift from God apart from works.  Salvation comes through repentance, a turning from one’s own way to God’s way, and accepting Jesus Christ in personal faith.

Ephesians 2:8-10; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; John 1:12

 

THE SCRIPTURES

We believe both the Old and the New Testaments of the Bible to be the inerrant Holy Word of God, inspired in every part by the Holy Spirit.  The Bible is the revelation of God for the equipping of man and is the supreme and final authority of faith and life.

II Timothy 3:15-17; II Peter 1:19-21
