What We Believe

We believe the Holy Bible, and only the Bible, to be the verbal, inspired words of God, authoritative, and without error in the original manuscripts.  We believe that in all matters regarding sin, salvation, faith, the church, heaven, hell and right conduct; the scriptures and the scriptures alone are the authority to govern all life. 

2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:21; Proverbs 30:5

God the father

We believe there is only one true God, eternally existent in three persons: The Trinity. The Father, The Son, and the Holy Spirit; and that these three are one God.

Deuteronomy 6:4; Genesis 1:26; Matthew 28:19

We believe God, as Father, reigns over His entire universe with providential care.  He is all powerful, all loving and all knowing.  He is Father to those who have become children of God through Jesus Christ, who will deliver them into the Father's hands.

Genesis 1:1; 1 Chronicles 29:10; Jeremiah 10:10; Matthew 6:9; Acts 1:7; Romans 8:14, 15; 1 Corinthians 8:6, 15:24; Ephesians 4:6

God the Son: Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ is God the Son, the second person of the Trinity.  He came into the world that He might manifest God to men, fulfill prophecy, and become Redeemer of a lost world.  Jesus was 100% God and 100% man.  He is the only man ever to have lived a sinless life. He was born of the Virgin Mary, received a human body and a sinless nature without ceasing to be God.  He performed miracles, He voluntarily accepted His Father's will and became the divinely provided sacrificial lamb and took away the sins of the world.  He died on the cross for mankind and thus, atoned for our sins through the shedding of His blood.  He rose from the dead on the third day according to scriptures, ascended to the right hand of the Father, and will return again in power and glory.  We believe that He became head over all things to the church, which is His body, and in this ministry He does not cease to intercede and to be an advocate for the saved.

Luke 1:30-35; John 1:1, 14-18; Hebrews 4:15; Philippians 2:5-11; 1 Timothy 2:5; Romans 3:25-31; 2 Corinthians 5:14; Hebrews 10:5-14; Luke 1:35; 1 Corinthians 15:1-3; Ephesians 1:23; Philippians 2:6-8; 1 John 2:1-2.

God the holy spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit, the Third Person of the Trinity, dwells in every believer immediately after he places his faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and that God provides, through the Holy Spirit, power to live the Christian life.  The Holy Spirit is manifested through a variety of spiritual gifts to build and sanctify the church.  We believe that every believer receives grace from God in the form of a spiritual gift, which enables him to function as a member of the body of Christ.
