What We Believe

what-we-believeWe believe the Bible is the Word of God, supernaturally inspired. It is inerrant in the original manuscripts and preserved by God in its verbal, plenary inspiration; and that it is a divinely authoritative standard for every age and every life.

We believe the Godhead exists eternally in three persons; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and that these three are one God.

We believe God is the absolute and sole creator of the universe and that creation was by divine command.

We believe God, by sovereign choice and out of love for all people, sent Christ into the world to save sinners.

We believe that Jesus Christ in the flesh was both God and man. He was born of a virgin and lived a sinless life; He was crucified, died in our place and for our sins, and was raised from the dead bodily on the third day. Later, He ascended to the Father’s right hand where He is the head of the church and intercedes for believers.

We believe Jesus Christ is coming again personally, bodily, and visibly to this earth to set up His kingdom.

We believe the Lord Jesus Christ made a perfect atonement for sin, through his sacrificial death and shed blood, and has redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us. Human beings are saved and justified on the simple and single ground of His shed blood.

We believe that salvation through Jesus Christ, with its forgiveness of sins, its impartation of a new nature, and its hope of eternal life—is entirely apart from good works, baptism, church membership or human effort and is of pure grace.

We believe that it is the goal of every Christian to become a disciple of Christ by growing toward spiritual maturity through the knowledge of and obedience to the Word of God and submission to the Holy Spirit, who indwells, baptizes and seals all believers at the moment of salvation.
