From the Word of God, we believe the following essential truths:
The Holy Scriptures
We believe the Bible is the inspired and inerrant Word of God, necessary, sufficient and authoritative for all matters of faith, life, and godliness.
We believe there is one God, infinitely perfect, eternally existing in three distinct persons, the Father, Jesus Christ the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
We believe Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man, was born of a virgin, lived a perfect life, died a substitutionary death on the cross for the sins of the world, was buried and after three days rose bodily from the dead, conquering sin and death, and is now seated at the right hand of God.
We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, rebelled against Him, and thereby incurred both physical and spiritual death. As a result, all are born with a sinful nature, are separated from the life of God, and in need of salvation.
We believe that God, by His grace and mercy, has provided salvation through Jesus Christ for all who repent of their sins and trust in Him. Those who repent and believe are forgiven of their sins and reconciled to God. This salvation is offered to all through the preaching of the Gospel.
We believe that as a result of man’s sinfulness, he is unwilling to follow God and unable to save himself; therefore, it is necessary that all should be regenerated by the power of the Holy Spirit in order to be saved.
We believe every believer is indwelt by the Holy Spirit and, empowered by His grace, will be led by the Spirit in a new life, obeying God and growing in Christlikeness.
We believe that all true believers, united through faith in Christ and submission to His Word comprise the universal Church. The local church gathers together for worship, mutual edification, and the proclamation of the Gospel.
The End of the Age
We believe that at the end of the age Jesus Christ will return to this earth visibly, physically, and suddenly, in power and great glory to take up His Church from this earth and so the saints shall always be with the Lord.
We believe in the coming Day of Judgment and the future bodily resurrection of those who have died; those who have not trusted in Christ will enter eternal punishment in hell and those who have trusted in Christ will enter eternal life in heaven.
