What do we believe?

ABOUT THE BIBLE

We believe . . . that the Bible is the verbally inspired Word of God, without error as originally written. It is God's complete revelation of His will for salvation and the only unfailing rule of faith and practice for the Christian life.

ABOUT GOD

We believe . . . in one God, Creator of all things, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and that these three are co-eternal and of equal dignity and power.

ABOUT JESUS CHRIST

We believe . . . in the deity of Jesus Christ; His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit; His virgin birth; His sinless life; His substitutionary death on a cross; His bodily resurrection; His ascension to the right hand of the Father; and His personal, imminent return.

ABOUT MANKIND

We believe . . . that man was created by and for God; that by man's disobeying God, every person incurred spiritual death, which is separation from God, and physical death as a result; and that all people are sinners by nature and practice, and are in desperate need of God's only provision for sin - Jesus Christ.

ABOUT SALVATION

We believe . . . that God has provided one and only one sacrifice for man's sin, the Lord Jesus Christ, who is the perfect Son of God, and the "Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world." Therefore, God declares all who believe in Him to be righteous. That declaration is the result of Jesus' sacrificial death, which brings those who believe, into a right relationship with God.

ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT

We believe . . . in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, who indwells all believers, enabling and empowering their life and ministry.

ABOUT THE RESURRECTION

We believe . . . that all mankind will be raised from the dead, resulting in the everlasting blessedness of those in right relationship with God, and the everlasting punishment of those who have rejected God's forgiveness in His Son.
