What We Believe
WE BELIEVE the Bible is the written word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit and without error in the original manuscripts. The Bible is the revelation of God’s truth and is infallible in all matters of faith and practice.
WE BELIEVE in one God, eternally existing in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
WE BELIEVE that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, who through His perfect life and sacrificial death atoned for all who will trust in Him alone, for salvation.
WE BELIEVE in the deity of the Holy Spirit as a Person distinct from the Father and Son, and possessing all of the divine attributes. He exalts Christ, convicts people of sin, enlightens, gifts, and empowers believers and the church in worship, evangelism, and service.
WE BELIEVE that all sinners since the fall of Adam are totally unable to save themselves and therefore salvation is by God alone as He sovereignly calls those before the foundation of the world to be His people. We believe His choice is based on His grace, not on any human merit or effort.
WE BELIEVE in the eternal life of the saved with God in heaven and the eternal separation of the lost in hell.
WE BELIEVE the Lord Jesus is coming again to this earth, personally, bodily, and visibly to consummate history and the eternal plan of God.
WE BELIEVE in the biblical definition of and instructions pertaining to sexual relationships in all circumstances and in the biblical definition of marriage as being between one man and one woman for one lifetime.
WE BELIEVE that God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male or female. These two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God.
WE BELIEVE that all human beings are made in the image of God and thus endowed with intrinsic value. Therefore, we believe in promoting respect for and protecting the worth and dignity of every individual human being, born or unborn, including unborn children from conception; those newly born; persons with disabilities; the elderly; and other vulnerable people, especially those who cannot defend themselves.
WE BELIEVE that all aspects of our lives are to be lived to the glory of God under the leadership of Jesus Christ.
