What We Believe


WE BELIEVE the Bible to be the inspired, only infallible, authoritative, inerrant, Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16-17;  2 Peter 1:21).

WE BELIEVE there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:1;  Deuteronomy 6:4;  Matthew 28:19;  John 10:30).

WE BELIEVE in the deity of Christ (John 10:30);  His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14Matthew 1:23Luke 1:34-35);  His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15;  7:26);  His miracles (John 2:11);  His vicarious and atoning death on the cross (1 Corinthians 15:3;  Ephesians 1:7;  Hebrews 2:9);  His resurrection (John 11:25Revelation 19:11-16);  His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Revelation 19:11-16);  and His personal return to earth in power and glory (Acts 1:11Revelation 19:11-16).

WE BELIEVE in the necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the sinfulness of human nature, and that all are justified on the single ground faith in the shed blood of Christ, and only by God’s grace through faith alone, are we saved (John 3:16-19, 5:25Romans 3:23, 5:8-9Ephesians 2:8-10Titus 3:5).

WE BELIEVE in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost;  those who are saved unto the resurrection of life and those who are not saved unto the resurrection of damnation (John 5:28-29John 3:16-18, 36).

WE BELIEVE in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 8:91 Corinthians 12:12-13Galatians 3:26-28).

WE BELIEVE in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by Whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life (Romans 8:13-141 Corinthians 3:166:19-20Ephesians 4:30, 5:18).
