What we believe...

 

  • There is one God, creator of heaven and earth, eternally existent in three persons (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) the same in essence and equal in attributes.

 

  • This triune God has revealed Himself in the Bible which He inspired. As originally written, the Bible is inerrant and complete.

 

  • Jesus Christ in the flesh was both God and man, born of a virgin, and sinless. He died as a penalty for our sins and was raised from the dead bodily on the third day. Later He ascended to the Father’s right hand in heaven, where He is head of the church and intercedes for believers, and from where He is coming again, personally and imminently.

 

  • The Holy Spirit convicts people of sin, convinces them to believe in Jesus Christ and converts those who believe. He makes them new creatures in Christ, incorporates them into the body of Christ (the Church), and seals and indwells them until the day of redemption. When Christians acknowledge their own inadequacy and by faith yield to His control, He gives them power for victorious living and service.

 

  • A Christian is one who acknowledges he is a sinner, has repented of his sin, believes that Jesus Christ died as the only atonement for his sin, and has received Him by faith into his life to be Savior and Lord as the only way into reconciliation with God. To know God in this way is to have eternal life.

 

  • The local church is God’s vehicle for developing spiritual maturity, responsible freedom, fellowship among Christians, and equipping them to relate the Gospel to the world.

 

  • There is a resurrection of both the Christian and non-Christian - the Christian to the resurrection of life and the non-Christian to eternal separation from God.

 

  • Satan is the primary adversary of God, His work, and of His people, but is always under the controlling restraint of God.
