What We Believe
We believe that the Bible is the complete and verbally inspired Word of God and without error in its original manuscripts, and therefore, the supreme standard for faith and conduct (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:21).
We believe in the absolute deity and perfect humanity of the Lord Jesus Christ; that He had two natures, divine and human united in one person without mixture or confusion and He did not sin; His virgin birth and vicarious death through the shedding of His blood for the forgiveness of sins; His bodily resurrection and ascension; His present High priestly ministry; and in His coming again for His redeemed ones (John 1:1, 2, 14; Luke 1:35, Romans 3:24-25; Ephesians 1:7; Hebrews 7:25; Revelation 19:11-16).
We believe in the absolute deity of the Holy Spirit; that He is a person who convicts the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment. To the believer He is the agent in regeneration, baptizing all believers into the body of Christ, indwelling and sealing them unto the day of redemption; and that He exercises a ministry of comfort and teaching (John 16:8-11; 1 Corinthians 12:12-14; Romans 8:9; Ephesians 1:12-14; 1 Corinthians 2:13).
We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but in Adam’s sin the race fell, inherited a sinful nature, became alienated from God, and that man is totally depraved, and of himself, utterly unable to redeem his lost condition (Genesis 1:26-27; Romans 3:22-23; Romans 5:12; Ephesians 1:1-3, 12).
We believe that the salvation of the sinner is wholly of grace through personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and that all the redeemed once saved are kept by God’s power and are secure in Christ forever (Ephesians 2:8; John 6:37-40; 1 Peter 1:5).
