What We Believe

We believe in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as being verbally inspired and completely inerrant in the original writings and of supreme and final authority in faith and life (Matthew 5:17-18; Luke 24:27,44; II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:21; 3:15-16).

We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:26; Isaiah 6:8; Matthew 28:18-19; Mark 12:29; John 3:34; John 6:27; Hebrews 1:8; II Corinthians 13:14)

We believe that Jesus Christ was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary and is true God and true man (Matthew 1:16, 20-25; Luke 2:40-52, 7:48; Philippians 2:5-8).

We believe that man was created in the image of God; that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death but also that spiritual death which is separation from God; and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature and indeed practice sin in thought, word and deed (Genesis 1:26, 2:17, 6:5; Psalm 14:1-3; Isaiah 53:6; Romans 3:10-19, 5:12-14; 6:23, 8:6-7 Ephesians 2:1-3).

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood (John 1:29, 3:16; Romans 3:25-26, 5:1,6-8; II Corinthians 5:21; Ephesians 2:8-10).

We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into Heaven and His present life for us as High Priest and Advocate (John 20:20; Acts 1:9-11; I Corinthians 15:2-8; Hebrews 7:25; I John 2:1).

We believe in the Second Coming – the personal, physical and imminent return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in power and glory as He promised (John 14:1-3; I Corinthians 15:51-57; I Thessalonians 4:13-18 Revelation 20:4-6).

We believe that all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God, a relationship in which they are eternally secure (John 1:12, 10:28-30; Acts 16:31; Romans 8:28-39; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5; Jude 24).

We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and of the unjust; the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost; and the eternal blessings of fellowship with God for the saved (Luke 16:19-26; John 5:25-29; II Thessalonians 1:7-9; Revelation 20:11-15).
