We believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory; and that this triune God created all, upholds all and governs all.
We believe in God the Father, an infinite, personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love; He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men; He hears and answers prayer; and He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.
We believe in Jesus Christ, God's only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles and teachings, substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, and His personal, visible return to earth.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, who comes forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify and empower for ministry all who believe in Christ; the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ and that He is an abiding helper, teacher and guide. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and in the exercise of all the biblical gifts of the Spirit.
We believe all people are sinners by nature and choice and therefore are under condemnation; by the Holy Spirit, God regenerates those who repent of their sins and confess Jesus Christ as Lord; Jesus Christ baptizes the seeking believer with the indwelling of the Holy Spirit and power for service, often subsequent to regeneration.
We believe in the universal Church, the living spiritual Body of Christ, of which Jesus Christ is the Head and all regenerated persons are members.
We believe the Lord Jesus Christ committed two sacraments to the Church: 1) baptism, and 2) the Lord's Supper. We believe in baptism by immersion and communion open to all believers.
We believe the sacrament of marriage has been and is ordained by God. This Church defines “marriage” as the exclusive covenantal union of one genetic man and one genetic woman, each in the gender determined by God at the individual’s conception. Sexual relations are to be exercised solely between a husband and wife in such a marriage.
We believe in the personal, visible return of Christ to earth and the establishment of His kingdom; in the resurrection of the body; and in the final judgment, eternal blessing of the righteous, and endless suffering of the wicked.
We believe in and identify with the doctrinal statements of the Apostles’ and Nicene Creeds as embodying fundamental tenets of the Christian faith.
We believe the Old and New Testament scriptures are the Word of God; fully inspired without error in the original manuscripts; and are the trustworthy standard for faith and practice.
