We believe that the Bible, both the Old and New Testaments, is the Word of God; that it was written by men who were inspired by God; and that it is without error in its original writings; and is, therefore, the complete and final authority in all matters of faith and life.
We believe that there is only one true God who eternally exists in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Each is co-equal in all aspects of His divine nature and personality and is worthy of our worship, praise and adoration.
We believe that God the Father is spirit and that He is infinite and perfect in holiness, love, mercy, grace, righteousness, wisdom, power, and glory.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God; that He was sent by the Father; conceived by the Holy Spirit; born of the virgin Mary; fully God and fully man; that He lived a sinless life; and that He shed His blood and died on the cross as the atoning sacrifice for the sins of the world. We believe that Jesus Christ was buried; that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures; that He ascended to Heaven; that He is now seated at the right hand of the throne of God where He forever lives to make intercession for the believer; and that He is the only mediator between God and man.
We believe that the work of the Holy Spirit is to convict mankind of sin, righteousness, and judgment; that He regenerates, seals, indwells, sanctifies, teaches, enlightens, empowers, and intercedes for believers; and that He has gifted every believer as He wills for the good of the church to accomplish its mission.
We believe that mankind was created in the image of God; that Adam disobeyed God and sin entered the world; that sin resulted in Adam's immediate spiritual death and separation from God; that every person has inherited this sin nature as evidenced by our sinful deeds; and that all persons are deserving of God's wrath and in need of salvation.
We believe that salvation is the free gift of God's grace to all who put their faith in Jesus Christ, the One who paid sin's penalty for us by dying on the cross. We believe that there is absolutely nothing a person can do to merit God's favor. We believe that every person who repents of their sin and confesses that Jesus Christ is Lord experiences a spiritual rebirth whereby they are born again into God's family and become a child of God. We believe that at that moment God gives His Holy Spirit to every believer as a seal to preserve that individual until the Day of Redemption, and that such a person is eternally secure by the keeping power of God Himself.
We believe that the Church is the Body of Christ, with Christ being its head, and that it exists in two states: 1. as the universal church, which is comprised of all true believers, in all locations, throughout all history; and 2. as the local church, an organized body of believers in a particular location who have banded together for worship, teaching, fellowship and witness. As public expressions of our faith in Christ, our local church will provide for communion and believer's baptism by immersion. We believe that each church is under the authority of Christ alone. We will comply with the laws of our government as long as they do not restrict our worship and obedience to the Great Commission of Christ. We will be free from all control by religious entities outside of our local church.
We believe in the imminent return of Jesus Christ for His Church; that His return will be personal and visible; that believers, both living and dead, will be joined together with Christ in the air and be taken to heaven with Him; and that all mankind will appear before the Judgment of Christ resulting in everlasting joy in God's presence for the believer and eternal punishment for the unbeliever.
