We Believe

  • We believe the Bible, Old and New Testament, is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative written word of God.
  • We believe in one God, creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons:  Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe that Jesus Christ is true God and true man, conceived by and of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, died on the cross, was bodily resurrected and presently exalted at God’s right hand.
  • We acknowledge the reality of Satan, our adversary, and his present control over unsaved mankind.
  • We believe that man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and is therefore lost and only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained.
  • We believe the only means of salvation is through repentance of sin and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • We believe in the Atonement by the substitutionary death and shed blood of Jesus Christ our Lord.
  • We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ and during this age to convince men of sin, renew, indwell, guide, instruct and empower the believer for godly living and service.
  • We believe in the resurrection of the saved into everlasting life in the presence of Christ Jesus in Heaven and the resurrection of the unsaved into everlasting punishment in Hell, eternally separated from Christ.
  • We believe that the true Church is composed of all such persons who through saving faith in Jesus Christ have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the body of Christ of which He is the head.
  • We believe that all of the gifts of the Holy Spirit are valid and operative today.
  • We believe that water baptism and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances to be observed by the Church during this present age.  They are, however, not to be regarded as means of salvation.
  • We believe that Jesus Christ is the Lord and Head of the Church, and that every local Church has the right under Christ to decide and govern its own affairs.
