We believe that the Bible is the inspired, truthful, and authoritative word of God.
We believe that there is one God, the creator and ruler of the universe. He exists eternally in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God and co-equal to the Father. He lived a sinless human life, yet willingly sacrificed himself to pay the penalty for sin by dying on a cross. He was raised from the dead, ascended to the right hand of the Father, and will return in power and glory.
THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe in the the Holy Spirit, co-equal to the Father and the Son. He indwells all believers, guarantees their salvation, empowers them with gifts that build up the church, and teaches them to think and act rightly.
We believe humanity is the pinnacle of God's creation, made in the image of God to reflect his character and authority. That image was marred by the disobedience of Adam and Eve, and mankind became alienated from God. Through Adam, the stain of sin spread to the entire human race so that all commit sin, deserve judgment, and need the gracious salvation of Christ.
We believe that salvation is a gift of God brought to man by grace and received by all who repent and place their faith in the atoning work of Christ. Genuine repentance and faith are characterized by a changed life.
We believe that the church is a global spiritual community made up of all born-again persons. It is given local expression through individual congregations, which exist wherever the saints gather, the gospel is preached, and baptism and the Lord's Supper are administered.
We believe that the church’s mission is summarized by Christ’s command to “make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:19-20).
MINISTRY AND SPIRITUAL GIFTS
We believe that the gifts of the Holy Spirit exist today, are distributed as he determines, and are intended to build up the church. Particular gifts are not essential to prove the presence of the Holy Spirit, who indwells each believer at conversion.
We believe that God does hear and answer the prayer of faith, in accordance with his own will, for the sick and afflicted.
We believe that it is the privilege and responsibility of every believer to minister according to the gifting and grace of God given to them.
THINGS TO COME
We believe that Jesus Christ will return bodily to judge the living and the dead.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and lost; the saved to life with God forever, and the lost to everlasting destruction.
