What We Believe
We believe in the verbal inspiration, total inerrancy and authority of the Scriptures in the original autographs.
We believe in one God, creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity, virgin birth, vicarious substitutionary suffering and death of Jesus Christ, His bodily resurrection and His premillennial return to earth.
We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, and during this age to convict men, regenerate the unbelieving sinner, indwell, guide, instruct and empower the believer for godly living and service.
We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God but voluntarily fell from his sinless state. As a result, all men are sinners and hopelessly sinful in themselves, apart from the grace of God.
We believe that salvation is received by grace alone through faith in the vicarious, substitutionary death of the Lord Jesus Christ; that for our sins He died and was resurrected for our justification; that every true believer, born of the Spirit, can have full assurance of salvation and is eternally secure in Christ.
We believe that water baptism and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances to be observed by the church during the present age. They are, however, not to be regarded as means of salvation.
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, and that every local church has the right under Christ to decide and govern its own affairs.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead: of the believer to everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord, of the unbeliever to judgment and everlasting conscious punishment.
