believe that every
word in the original writings of the Holy Scriptures is inspired by God and
therefore without error. We accept the Holy Scriptures as the supreme and
final authority on all matters on which it speaks.
We believe there is one true God, eternally existing in three Persons:
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, each of whom possesses equally all the
attributes of Deity and the characteristics of personality.
We believe that man was originally created in the image of God but
fell into sin through disobedience to a divine command and, therefore,
brought all mankind under condemnation. Man's nature is, therefore, such that
he is totally unable to please God for acquisition of a right standing before
We believe that Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became perfect
Man without ceasing to be perfect Deity through His miraculous conception by
the Holy Spirit. He voluntarily paid for the sins of all people by dying on
the cross as their substitute, thus satisfying divine justice and accomplishing
salvation for all who trust in Him alone. The third day, He arose from the
dead in the same body, though glorified, in which He had lived and died. He
ascended into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God the Father, where

We believe that salvation is a gift received only through a personal
trust in Jesus Christ Who was man's substitute for sin. This gift is given by
the unmerited favor of God and is given without regard to any and all human
works or goodness. All those who accept this gift by faith are eternally
secure in Him.
We believe that the Holy Spirit has come into the world to reveal and
glorify Christ and apply the saving work of Christ to people. He convicts
sinners of their need for Christ, baptizes them into the Body of Christ,
imparts new life to them, indwells them and seals them until the day of
redemption. Each believer is called to live in the power of the indwelling
Spirit and in so doing, his faith will be manifested
in works pleasing to God.
We believe that God admonishes His people to assemble together
regularly for edification through the Scriptures and for mutual encouragement
and when not assembled to be involved in evangelism.
We believe in the imminent return of Christ for His Church, the
eternal state of punishment for the unsaved and the eternal state of blessing
for the saved.
