What We Believe

The Word of God

We believe that the Bible is the complete written Word of God, fully inspired in every word without error as given by God. We believe that the Bible was written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit and is the final and supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct. (Joshua 1:8; Matthew 4:4; 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Matthew 5:18)

The Trinity

We believe there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons (the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit); that they are equal in divine perfection; and that they execute distinct but harmonious offices in the work of creation, providence and redemption. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; Acts 5:3-4; Ephesians 1:13-14; 1 Peter 1:1-2)

God the Father

We believe in God the Father, perfect in holiness, infinite in wisdom, measureless in power. He is the Sovereign ruler in creation, providence, and redemption. We rejoice that He concerns Himself mercifully, justly, and righteously in the affairs of men, that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and death all that come to Him through faith in Christ Jesus. (Psalm 89:11; Matthew 3:17; John 15:7; Ephesians 1:3-6)

God the Son

We believe in Jesus Christ, the second person of the triune God, the eternal Word and only begotten Son. Only begotten is not talking about a being created who is inferior to God. Instead, He is of the same kind, the same essence of God; He is God! We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles and teachings. We believe in His substitutionary atoning death on the cross, His bodily resurrection from the grave, His ascension into heaven, His perpetual intercession for His people, and His visible return to earth to set up His millennial kingdom upon this earth. (John 1:1-4; 3:16; 20:28; Philippians 2:5-11; Romans 8:34; Hebrews 7:25; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4; Romans 8:34)

God the Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is a divine equal with the Father and the Son. We believe He convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment. He regenerates, baptizes, seals, indwells, and anoints all who become children of God through Christ. He guides, teaches, sanctifies, and fills believers whom moment by moment, surrender to Him. While the baptism and the sealing of the Holy Spirit take place at the moment of salvation, all believers are exhorted to be filled with the Holy Spirit on a daily basis. (John 14:26; 16:8-13; Acts 5:1-4; 1 Corinthians 12:13; Ephesians 1:13-14; 5:18)

Man

We believe that mankind is the direct creation of God, being made in His image and likeness. By personal disobedience to the revealed will of God, mankind became a sinful creature and a fallen race which is universally sinful in both nature and practice. Thus, mankind is alienated from the life and family of God, is placed under the righteous judgment and wrath of God, and have, within themselves, no possible means of salvation. (Genesis 1:26-27; Romans 1:1-23)

Salvation

We believe that the only escape from the condemnation of sin is through the redemption brought by Jesus Christ. God says that everyone has sinned and falls short of His glory and righteous requirements for salvation. Our sin, which can never be erased by good deeds, condemns us to hell. All people, from the moment of birth, are alienated from God and are enemies of Him, lost and without hope in what the Bible calls a “crooked and depraved generation.” Paying the price for sin, Jesus Christ died in our place. He demonstrated His great love for us, even when sin removed us far from Him. Everyone who repents and believes in Jesus Christ will have eternal life, which can never be lost. Those who put their trust and confidence in Christ are called “new creations;” the old sin nature is gone and has been replaced with the new nature of the redeemed. (Romans 3:23; 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 5:8; John 3:16; 1 John 5:11-13; 2 Corinthians 5:17)
