We believe That there is but one Living and true God, an infinite, all-knowing Spirit. God is perfect in all His attributes. God is one in essence. God eternally exists in three Persons — the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – each equally deserving worship and obedience.
We believe the Bible is God’s written revelation to humanity. It is verbally inspired in every word, and absolutely without error in the original documents. We affirm the infallibility, sufficiency, and authority of Scripture.
We believe man was created in the image of God, but rebelled against God and through disobedience was alienated from God. The entire human race justly deserves God’s punishment for rejecting Him.
We believe in the deity of Jesus, the eternal Son of God, who became a man by means of the virgin birth. He lived life in perfect union with God and was, therefore, without sin. Jesus performed miracles and was executed on a cross at Calvary.
When Jesus died on the cross, God punished Jesus for our sins. He was punished in our place and through His sacrificial death, therefore, Jesus makes it possible for anyone who believes in Him to be reconciled to God. Jesus arose bodily from the dead and ascended to the right hand of the Father in heaven. Jesus will personally return to earth in power and glory at the end of this age.
We believe salvation is accomplished instantly and solely by the power of God, when any person, enabled by the Holy Spirit, forsakes their sin and believes in the Person and work of Jesus. God forgives the repentant sinner based completely on the redeeming work and merit of Jesus Christ and not on the basis of human works or merit. Believers are secure in Christ forever because of His power and will manifest a life that honors God in thought, word, and deed.
We believe the Holy Spirit baptizes all believers into the Body of Christ at the moment of salvation. The Holy Spirit regenerates, indwells, instructs, empowers, equips for service, sanctifies and seals believers for the day of redemption. The Spirit-filled life is a reality for all who are in Christ.
We believe Jesus Christ is the head of the church. The church is one unified spiritual body, the Body Of Christ and is comprised of all those who are saved from God’s wrath through faith in Jesus Christ. The purpose of the church is to praise God’s name, preach God’s word, proclaim God’s salvation to those without Christ, practice God’s love by serving others and promote community and unity among believers while observing the ordinances of baptism and communion as commanded by Jesus.
We believe that both the saved and unsaved will experience bodily resurrection at the consummation of this age. The saved will be raised to experience life forever with Jesus and the unsaved will be raised to experience God’s judgment and eternal hell.
1Timothy 1:16 “Yet for this reason I found mercy, so that in me as the foremost, Jesus Christ might demonstrate His perfect patience as an example for those who would believe in Him for eternal life. “
