We believe the 66 books of the Bible to be the inerrant, infallible written Word of God. Christians are obligated to submit to its teaching in matters of belief and conduct.
We believe in one God eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He is our Creator, Redeemer, Sustainer, and Judge.
We believe that Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on the cross as a substitutionary sacrifice to pay for the sins of man, rose bodily from the grave and ascended to heaven where He is the only mediator between God and man.
We believe that people are created in the image of God and therefore have supreme value, but are fallen due to sin and naturally exist in the present age in a state of guilt and alienation from God. Through personal repentance and faith in Christ as Savior and Lord, one is born again into God’s family and receives His salvation. Salvation is based on God’s love and grace. It is received personally by faith alone apart from good works, which are the outgrowth of salvation and not its basis.
We believe that all Christians who are born again by faith into God’s family are spiritually one as members of the Body of Christ, the universal church. That relationship ought to be expressed by membership and involvement in a local congregation. All Christians are gifted by God for participation in a ministry of the Church.
We believe that Jesus Christ will visibly return to this earth to raise the dead and bring salvation and judgement to completion. We believe that all men are eternal creatures who will experience the judgement of separation from God in hell or the blessings of salvation in heaven.
