Bible is God's Word to us. We believe the entire Bible is inspired by
God, without error and the authority on which we base our faith, conduct
2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; 2 Timothy 1:13; Psalm 119:105, 160, 12:6; Proverbs 30:5
believe in one God who exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son
and Holy Spirit. We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God who came to
this earth as Savior of the world.
is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in
three personalities: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These
three are equal and are one God.
Genesis 1:1, 26, 27, 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14
believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless
life, His miracles, His atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His
complete conquest over the powers of Satan, His ascension to the right
hand of the Father, and His imminent return in like manner as He went
Matthew 1:22-23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5, 14:10-30; Hebrews
4:14-15; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Romans 1:3-4; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Timothy
6:14-15; Titus 2:13
Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present
in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also
lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the
Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and
guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer spiritual gifts
when they are saved. As Christians we seek to live under His control
2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13, 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 2:12, 3:16; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 5:1
believe Jesus died on the cross and shed His blood for our sins. We
believe that salvation is found by placing our faith in what Jesus did
for us on the cross. We believe Jesus rose from the dead and is coming
Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 14:6, 1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1
believe water baptism is a symbol of the cleansing power of the blood
of Christ and a testimony to our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Colossians 2:12; Acts 2:41; Ephesians 2:8-9; Matthew 28:19-20
or the Lord’s Supper, is an ordinance given to all believers by Jesus
Christ to remember His sacrifice for us and to symbolize the new
covenant. Communion is not a means of salvation. Rather, it is a
testament of a believer’s faith in the atoning work of the cross.
Matthew 26:26-30; Mark 14:22-26; Luke 22:19-20; 1 Corinthians 11:23-29
were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated
from God by sin or eternally with God through forgiveness and
salvation. To be eternally separated from God is hell. To be eternally
in union with Him is eternal life in Heaven. Heaven and hell are real
places of eternal existence.
John 3:16, 14:17; Romans 6:23, 8:17-18; Revelation 20:15; 1 Corinthians 2:7-9
is made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. He
is the supreme object of God’s creation. Although man has tremendous
potential for good, he is marred by an attitude of disobedience toward
God called "sin." This attitude separates man from God.
Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a; Romans 3:23; Isaiah 59:1-2
believe the church consists of all those who truly believe in Jesus
Christ and in His atoning death, and who trust in Him as their personal
Lord and Savior.
We believe every believer should be in a growing
relationship with Jesus by obeying God's Word, yielding to the Holy
Spirit and by being conformed to the image of Christ.
