We believe the Bible is God’s word to us, written by human authors as they were guided by the Holy Spirit. In it, God reveals Himself so that He may be known. It is the final word on Christian belief and lifestyle, and is without error in its original manuscripts.
We believe in one God who exists eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Each person is fully God, possessing the nature, the power, and the attributes of the divine, particularly God’s steadfast, undying love, and his tender, compassionate mercy toward humanity.
We believe we are created in God’s image to glorify God, to worship God, and to mutually enjoy fellowship with God. This is God’s purpose and intent for us.
We believe all people are sinful by nature because of the fall of man through Adam’s disobedience, and are unable to return to fellowship with God on their own; they need a savior.
We believe Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, was conceived by the Holy Spirit, was born of the virgin Mary, lived a sinless life on earth, died on a cross, was buried, was raised from the dead on the third day, ascended into heaven, and will personally and visibly return from heaven.
We believe salvation is a gift from God. It is undeserved and cannot be earned or gained by one’s own means. It requires faith alone in Jesus Christ alone, that the blood he shed and his death on the cross is full payment for the sin that prevented fellowship with God. Through Jesus there is forgiveness for sin.
We believe the church is composed of the people who have trusted Jesus Christ for salvation from sin. Jesus is the head of the church and the church follows after him. The church worships God, makes Jesus known, and lives by the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
We believe both the saved and the unsaved will be resurrected bodily when Jesus Christ returns from heaven – the saved resurrected to eternity in heaven by faith in Jesus Christ and the unsaved resurrected to an eternity in hell by rejection of Jesus Christ.
