WHAT WE BELIEVE
The sole basis of our beliefs is the Bible, God's infallible written word, the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments. We believe the Holy Spirit uniquely, verbally, and entirely inspired it. Further, we hold the scripture to be without error. It is the supreme and final authority on all matters which it speaks. the following statements describe our understanding of God's truth revealed through His word.
There is one true God. God eternally exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Each person equally possesses all the attributes of deity and the characteristics of personality.
God created Adam and Eve in His image. Adam and Eve sinned by disobeying God and were alienated from their Creator. That historic fall brought all people under divine condemnation.
Sin has corrupted human nature. As a result, all people are unable to please God. Everyone needs regeneration and renewal by the Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ is God, the living word. He became flesh through His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit and His virgin birth. He is perfect deity and true humanity united in one person forever.
Jesus lived a sinless life and voluntarily atoned for human sins by dying on the cross as a substitutionary sacrifice. Jesus satisfied divine justice and provided salvation to all who trust in Him alone.
Jesus rose from the dead in the same body, though glorified, in which He lived and died.
Jesus ascended bodily into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God the Father, where He, the only mediator between God and humanity, continually makes intercession for His own.
Salvation is wholly a work of God's free grace and is not the work, in whole or in part, of human works or goodness or religious ceremony. God imputes His righteousness to those who put their faith and trust in Christ alone for their salvation and thereby justifies them in His sight.
It is the privilege of all who are born again of the Holy Spirit to be assured of their salvation from the very moment in which they trust Jesus Christ as their Savior. This assurance is not based upon any human merit but is produced by the witness of the Holy Spirit, who confirms in the believer the testimony given by God through His written word.
The Holy Spirit has come into the world to reveal and glorify Jesus Christ and to apply the saving work of Jesus Christ to individuals. He convicts and draws sinners to Jesus Christ, imparts new life to them, continually indwells them from the moment of spiritual birth, and seals them until the day of redemption. God provides His fullness, power, and control in the believer's life through faith.
It is the call of all believers to live in the power of the Holy Spirit, bearing fruit for the glory of God.
Jesus Christ is the head of the church, which is His body. The church is comprised of all people, living and dead, who have been joined to Him through saving faith.
God admonishes His people to assemble regularly for worship, for participation in ordinances, for edification through scriptures, and for mutual encouragement.
At physical death, the believer enters immediately into eternal, conscious fellowship with the Lord and awaits the resurrection of the body to everlasting glory and blessing.
At physical death, the unbeliever enters immediately into eternal conscious separation from the Lord and awaits the resurrection of the body to everlasting judgment and condemnation.
Jesus Christ will come again to the earth-personally, visibly, and boldly- to complete the eternal plan of God.
The Lord Jesus Christ commanded all believers to proclaim the gospel throughout the world and to disciple people from every nation. The fulfillment of the Great Commission requires that all worldly and personal ambitions be subordinated to a total commitment to Jesus Christ.
Baptism is the first of two ordinances given by Jesus to His church. It is a prerequisite to church membership, for the local church is comprised of believers who have been baptized by immersion. Baptism is the outward expression of the inward reality of faith in Jesus Christ.
The Lord's Supper is the second of the two ordinances given by Jesus to His church. It is to be observed at regular intervals by baptized believers. The bread and cup are symbols of Jesus' body and blood, shed for the forgiveness of our sins
Marriage is a covenant between a man and a woman. Marriage is a picture of Christ and His bride, the church.
