We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, every word inspired and inerrant in the original manuscripts and the final authority of our faith and practice.
2 Peter 1:20-21-2
2 Timothy 3:16-17
The Triune God
We believe in the Triune Godhead; The Father, The Son & The Holy Spirit. One in purpose and nature.
2 Corinthians 13:14
The Depravity of Mankind
We believe that all mankind are sinners by nature and by choice and apart from Jesus Christ, will be forever separated from God.
The Holy Spirit
We believe in the Holy Spirit who convicts the world of sin, regenerates the repentant heart and indwells the body of every child of God in order to transform us into the likeness of Jesus Christ.
2 Corinthians 3:17-18
We believe that Jesus Christ, God The Son, became a man being conceived through the power of The Holy Spirit, and that He was sinless in His life. We believe that He died on the cross for the sins of the world and that all who trust in Him are declared righteous in the sight of God.
We believe in His bodily resurrection, His ascension into heave, and His visible, physical return to earth according to His promise.
2 Corinthians 5:21
1 Corinthians 15:3-5
1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
The devil, Satan
We believe that the devil is a created and personal being and the declared enemy of God and man.
We believe that man is saved by faith and by alone in the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ. We believe that no man can be saved from his sins by works or ritual. We believe that true faith, however, will always result in repentance, in a changed life, and in good works pleasing to God.
2 Corinthians 5:17
We believe in the eternal preservation and everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the eternal punishment of the lost.
We believe in the universal church, a living spiritual body of which Christ is the head and of which all regenerated people are members. We believe that the local church is a company of believers in Jesus Christ, associated for evangelism and edification. We believe that baptism and The Lords's Supper have been committed to the local church for perpetual observance.
1 Corinthians 12:12-13
The Design of Humanity
In light of clear Biblical teaching on the matter, we believe that humanity is created in God's image and is distinct from all other animal life. In the creation, God intentionally created humans as male and female, fully equal to one another as intentional creations and, yet, distinct as well in design and roles. As a part of His design for humanity, God instated marriage as the lifelong union of one man and one woman. We deny, therefore, that gender, sexuality, and/or marriage are mere social constructs that may be changed or altered by any individual or society. We acknowledge that these gifts of God's creation are damaged by sin and are in need of the transforming work of The Spirit in sanctification, but hold that this is no license to alter God's design.
The Dignity of Life
We believe that every human is created in the image of God as such has dignity and value. By the commandment of God, human life must be protected at every stage of life. Persons are known to God from the womb and as such, we affirm that human life begins at conception and must not be intentionally destroyed in the womb. Human life continues until natural death and so every from of euthanasia and suicide is immoral as they destroy God's image. Further, as all humanity is created in God's image, we reject all forms of racism and affirm the dignity of all people with the hope of seeing individuals from every tongue, tribe and nation one day gathered around the throne of God in glad worship.
