The Bible

We believe the Scriptures as originally given by God, both Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired Word of God, infallible, entirely trustworthy, and the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

God the Father

We believe God the Father, the first person of the Trinity, orders and disposes all things according to His own purposes and grace. He has decreed for His glory all that comes to pass. He has graciously decreed the plan by which mankind might receive forgiveness of sin and be reconciled to Him, and has chosen from eternity those whom He would save from sin through Jesus Christ. (Psalm 8:1-4, John 3:16, Romans 5:8, Ephesians 1:5)

Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ is true God and true man. He is without sin as to nature, unable to sin in principle, and did not sin in fact. We further believe in His vicarious and atoning death by crucifixion, in His bodily resurrection, and in His ascension to the right hand of God the Father. He will personally return in power and glory, and He is the final judge of all. (John 1:1-3, Romans 1:3-4, 1 Peter 2:24, 1 Corinthians 15:3-4, John 14:1-7, 2 Corinthians 5:10, Revelation 22:12)

The Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit convicts the world of sin, regenerates with spiritual life those who believe in the gospel, indwells the Christian and seals their salvation the instant they receive the gift of eternal life by trusting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. At that same moment, the Spirit places the Christian into the Body of Christ in spiritual union with Jesus Christ and other Christians, and He sanctifies the Christian in holiness and gifts. He enables the Christian to serve in a way that bears spiritual fruit for God and the Church of Jesus Christ. (John 16:8, Titus 3:5, Ephesians 1:13, 1 Corinthians 12:4-13, Galatians 5:21-23)


We believe that the first man and woman were directly and immediately created by God in His image, free from sin. Man subsequently fell into sin by a voluntary act of willful disobedience to the revealed will of God. As a result, every human being of all ages is a sinner by divine pronouncement, nature, and deed, subject to the wrath of God. (Genesis 1:26-28, Genesis 2:15-17, Romans 3:10-18, 23)


We believe that mankind is utterly unable to save themselves from the power or penalty of sin. Each person must receive eternal life and forgiveness of sin on the basis of the grace of God through faith in the work that Christ accomplished in dying for the sin of mankind and resurrecting from the dead. It is only those who believe in Jesus Christ who become born of the Holy Spirit and thus become children of God. (Ephesians 2:8-9, Romans 6:23, Romans 10:9-10, John 1:12)

The Church

We believe that in the ultimate sense, Christ’s church is composed of all who have been saved and will be with Him in heaven. The local expression of the church, therefore, is to be a group of people who are genuinely saved, trusting in the Lord Jesus Christ and His atoning death for their salvation. (Ephesians 1:7, 1:22, 3:10, 5:23, Romans 10:9-10)

Spiritual Gifts

We believe that all spiritual gifts are in operation and that the Holy Spirit bestows spiritual gifts on all Christians for the purpose of winning the lost and strengthening believers for godly service to the glory of God. (1 Corinthians 12-14)

Our Enemy

We believe that Satan is a personage, and a fallen angel with a host of fallen angels with him. He is a powerful but limited creature, subordinate to God. He is the chief enemy of God and the accuser of mankind who continually seeks to counterfeit and pervert the works and truth of God. (Isaiah 14:12-14, Ezekiel 28:11-19, John 10:10, 1 Peter 5:8)


We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead; of believers to everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord; and of unbelievers to judgment and eternal punishment. (1 Corinthians 15:35-49, Revelation 20:11-15)

The Kingdom of God and Final Judgment

We believe that God’s Kingdom has come in the ministry of our Lord Jesus Christ, that it continues in the ministry of the Spirit through the Church, and that it will be consummated in the glorious, visible and triumphant appearing of Christ (His return to earth as King). After Christ returns to reign, He will bring about the final defeat of Satan all of his minions and work, the resurrection of the dead, the final Judgment, and the eternal blessing of the righteous and eternal conscious punishment of the wicked. (Colossians 1:18-20, Revelation 20:7-15)

Finally, God will be all in all and His Kingdom, His rule and His reign, will be fulfilled in the new heavens and the new earth, recreated by His mighty power, in which righteousness dwells and in which He will forever be worshiped. (Revelation 21:1-4)
