What we believe about...
We believe the sixty-six books of the Bible to be the infallible, written Word of God, verbally inspired by the Holy Spirit, inerrant in the original manuscripts, and the final authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
2 Timothy 3:16; Hebrews 4:12
We believe in the unity of the Godhead, eternally existing in three Persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – each of whom possess equally all the attributes of deity and the characteristics of personality.
Deuteronomy 6:4; Ephesians 1:3-14
The Person of Christ
We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, that He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and became incarnate through the virgin birth, and that He unites forever in His Person perfect deity and true humanity.
Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:18-25
The Work of Christ
We believe that Jesus Christ lived a sinless life, that He was crucified as the substitutionary sacrifice for the sins of all people, that He rose bodily from the dead, that He ascended into heaven where He is now exalted at the right hand of the Father where He intercedes for the believer.
Matthew 28:6; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18
We believe that man was originally and directly created in the image of God and that through disobedience fell. Consequently, all were brought under divine condemnation and are born sinners, unable to please God in their natural state.
Genesis 1:27; Isaiah 53:6; Romans 3:23
The Holy Spirit
We believe in the work of the Holy Spirit in the conviction and regeneration of the sinner. We believe in His indwelling presence and ministry in the believer to glorify Christ.
John 14:16-17, 26; 1 Corinthians 12:8-13; Ephesians 1:13-14
We believe that eternal salvation is wholly a work of God’s grace and that, upon repentance and personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, sinners are forgiven and divine righteousness is imputed to them.
John 3:3-6, 16-18; Ephesians 2:8-10; Hebrews 4:1-2
We believe that the Church, the Body of Christ, consists only of those who are born again, having been baptized into Christ by the Holy Spirit at the time of regeneration.
Acts 2:41-42; 1 Corinthians 12:12-14; Ephesians 1:22-23
The Second Coming
We believe that Jesus Christ will return personally, visibly, and bodily to receive His own and to establish His kingdom, and to rule in righteousness and peace.
John 14:1-6; Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
We believe in the bodily resurrection of the believer to eternal life and conscious fellowship with God. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the unbeliever to conscious separation from God in eternal punishment.
1 Corinthians 15:20-28, 50-58; Revelation 20:11-15
The Great Commission
We believe that Christ commissioned the Church to proclaim the Gospel throughout the world and to make disciples in every nation.
Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:4-8
