Core Beliefs

God

We believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory; that this triune God created all, upholds all, and governs all. (Genesis 1:1; Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 44:8; 48:16)


Scriptures

We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, fully inspired without error in the original manuscripts, and the infallible rule of faith and practice. (Isaiah 28:13; Nehemiah 8:8; John 17:17; 2 Timothy 3:16-17;
Hebrews 4:12; 1 Peter 1:23-25; 2 Peter 1:3-4 and 1:21)


How God Responds to His Children

We believe in God the Father, infinite, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love; that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men; that He hears and answers prayer; and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ. (Matthew 28:19-20; John 10:30; Hebrews 1:3; Romans 5:8)

Jesus

We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles and teachings, His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, and personal visible return to earth. (Isaiah 7:14; Micah 5:2; Matthew 1:23; Mark 16:19; Luke 1:34-35; John 1:1-2, 8:58 and 11:25; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; 1 Timothy 3:16; Hebrews 1:8; 1 John 1:2; Revelation 1:8)

Holy Spirit

We believe in the Holy Spirit, who comes forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, in righteousness and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify and empower for ministry all who believe in Christ; we believe that the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ and that He is an abiding Helper, Teacher and Guide. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and in the exercise of all Biblical gifts of the Spirit. (Acts 1:8; 2 Corinthians 3:18; John 16:8-11; Romans 8:26 and 15:13, 16; Hebrews 9:14)

Sin

We believe that all men are sinners by nature and choice and are therefore under condemnation; that God regenerates by the Holy Spirit those who repent of their sins and confess Jesus Christ as Lord; that Jesus Christ baptizes the seeking believer with the Holy Spirit and power for service, often subsequent to regeneration. (Acts 8:15-17; Ephesians 2:1-3 and 8-9; Romans 3:23 and 5:8; Titus 3:5)

Church

We believe in the universal church, the living spiritual body, of which Christ is the Head and all regenerated persons are members. (Acts 2:47; 1 Cor. 12:28; Eph. 5:24; Col. 1:18, 24)


Baptism

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ committed two ordinances to the church: baptism and the Lord’s Supper. We believe in baptism by immersion and communion open to all believers. (Matthew 28:19; Luke 22:19-20; Acts 2:38; Luke 22:19; 1 Cor. 11)


The Return Of Jesus

We believe in the personal, visible return of Christ to earth and the establishment of His Kingdom; in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment and eternal blessing of the righteous, and endless suffering of the wicked. (Matthew 16:27; Acts 1:11; Revelation 19:11-16, 20:11-15; Revelation 14:10-11 and 20:11-15)
