What We Believe

The Bible

We believe that the Bible is the written Word of God; full and complete in the 66 books of the Bible; revealed through the ministry of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 2:7-14; 2 Peter 1:20-21). We believe that the Bible is verbally inspired in every word (2 Timothy 3:16), absolutely inerrant in the original documents (Isaiah 30:8).

God

We believe in a perfectly holy, just, infinitely loving and merciful God who is the creator and sustainer of all things (Genesis 1:1; Exodus 34:5-9; Job 38:4-30; Isaiah 42:5; Hebrews 11:3), worthy of honor, confidence and obedience. He has always existed, one in essence, and in three Persons (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) having precisely the same nature, attributes and characteristics.

The Father

God the Father, an infinite, personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love, orders and disposes all things according to His own purpose (Psalm 145:8-9; Isaiah 46:8-11; Romans 11:33).

The Son

Jesus Christ possesses all the divine attributes, and in these He is of the same substance, coequal, and coeternal with the Father (Micah 5:2; John 10:27-30, 8:58, 14:9).

The Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is a divine Person, eternal, undivided, possessing all the divine attributes, and in these He is coequal with the Father and the Son (Acts 5:3-4; 2 Corinthians 3:17-18).

Man

We believe that man was created by God in His own image for the purpose of enjoying fellowship with God (Deuteronomy. 6:4-5) and exercising dominion over God’s created order (Genesis 1:26-28).

Salvation

We believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross, was raised from the dead on the third day, ascended bodily into the presence of God the Father, and now lives to intercede on our behalf (Luke 24:36-39; 1 Corinthians 15:3-8; Romans 8:31-34; Ephesians 1:20).

Christian Growth

We believe that the believer is to live a life of increasing conformity to the will of God, becoming more and more like the Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 6:1-22; 2 Corinthians 3:18; Philippians 3:8-16).

The Church

We believe that all who place their faith in Christ are immediately baptized by the Holy Spirit into one united spiritual Body (1 Corinthians 12:12-13), of which Christ is the head (Ephesians 1:22; 4:15; Colossians 1:18).

The Future

We believe the personal and visible return of Jesus Christ could occur at any time (Matthew 24:29-44; Revelation 19:11-20:6).
