We believe…the Bible to be the inspired, only infallible, authoritative, inerrant Word of God (II Timothy 3:15-16, II Peter 1:21).

 

We believe…there is one God, eternally existent in three persons-Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:1, Matthew 28:19, John 10:30).

 

We believe…in the deity of Christ (John 10:33), His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23), His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15, Hebrews 7:26), His miracles (John 2:11), His vicarious and atoning death (I Corinthians 15:3, Ephesians 1:7, Hebrews 2:9), His resurrection (John 11:25, I Corinthians 15:4), His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19), and His personal return in power and glory (Acts 1:11).

 

We believe…in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of human nature; that men are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ; that only by God’s grace and through faith are we saved; that our salvation is eternally secure (John 3:16; 5:24, Romans 3:24; 5:8-9, Ephesians 2:8-10, Titus 3:5, Philippians 1:6).

 

We believe…in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation (John 5:28-29).

 

We believe…in that “blessed hope,” the personal, premillennial, and imminent return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (I Thessalonians 4:16-18).

 

We believe… in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 8:9, I Corinthians 12:12-13; Galatians 3:26-28).

 

We believe…in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, who indwells every believer in Christ at the moment of salvation, and by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life (Romans 8:13-14, I Corinthians 3:16).

 

We believe… that Christians should live a holy life for the glory of God and the well being of others (I Peter 1:14-16, Ephesians 1:4, Ephesians 5:3).

 

We believe…that all who are in Christ face daily opposition on three continuously interacting fronts: the flesh, the world system, and the demonic (I Peter 5:8, I John 2:15-16, Galatians 5:17).

 

We believe…in the Church, the Body of Christ, whose mission it is to make disciples, which involves evangelizing the lost, growing, and equipping the believer (Matthew 28:19-20, Acts 1:8).

 

We believe…that the ordinances of the Church, given by our Lord, are Baptism (by immersion following conversion) and the Lord’s Table (communion) (Acts 8:36-39, I Corinthians 11:23-32).
