Belief in One God
We believe in one God, creator and sustainer of the universe, who eternally exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ is Lord
We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, who is fully God and came in the flesh as fully man. He was immaculately conceived, born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on the cross for the sins of the world, and raised bodily, and exalted to God’s right hand where He makes intercession for His own. He will personally come again.
We Are All Sinners
We believe that God created humankind, male and female, in His own image. However, everyone has sinned and is guilty before God. As a result, all creation suffers the consequences of the fall and is under God’s judgment.
Jesus’ Death on the Cross
We believe that because of His love God sent His own son, Jesus Christ, who inaugurated His kingdom, provided atonement for sin, disarmed the powers of darkness, triumphing over them by the cross, reconciling the world to Himself. He will consummate His kingdom in righteousness, power, and glory.
The Holy Spirit’s Power
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Trinity, who glorifies Jesus Christ, convicts of sin, and works in individuals to bring them to believe and obey Christ. The Spirit dwells in those who have trusted Christ as their Lord. We believe that all the Spirit’s gifts are operative today and that it is God’s desire to continually fill believers with His Holy Spirit in order to manifest His fruits and empower them for lives of holiness and fruitful service.
The Authority of Scripture
We believe the Bible to be the divinely inspired and authoritative Word of God, the only infallible rule of faith and practice.
Born Again in Righteousness
We believe all who repent and believe in Christ are born again to eternal life, delivered from condemnation, and as His Church are called to communicate the Gospel, proclaim the Kingdom, make disciples of all nations, and seek to be instruments of His righteousness, justice, and healing, all for the glory of God.
Resurrection of the Body
We believe in the resurrection of the body, the eternal blessedness of believers in the presence of Christ, and the eternal separation of unbelievers from Him.
