Scripture

We Believe that the Scriptures are contained in the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments. They are God-breathed, inerrant in content, and they serve as the only infallible and sufficient rule for faith and godliness.

The Godhead 
We Believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons-- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Each possesses all of the divine perfections, including, but not limited to, holiness, love, omnipotence, omniscience, omnipresence, immutability, faithfulness, righteousness, freedom, sovereignty and truthfulness. We Believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who was born of a virgin, fully human and fully divine, yet without sin. Who took our sin--with all its guilt and shame-- and paid its penalty. His substitutionary death satisfied the wrath of God against sinners. Who was raised from the dead, ascended to heaven, and lives today at the right hand of God the Father, interceding for His church. Who will return again to claim His bride--the church--and establish the fullness of His kingdom on earth. We Believe in the Holy Spirit Who convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment. Who regenerates and indwells every child of God. He is the "Spirit of adoption", nurturing our adoptive relationship with God. Who enables us for all acceptable worship, service, and holiness. Who gifts each believer for ministry to the church. Who keeps us secure in faith for the day of redemption.

Man
We Believe that man was created by God in His image-- holy and upright, with the ability to know and enjoy Him, and with the responsibility to be a steward over His earthly creation. We Believe the entire human race fell in the sin of Adam. Thus, we are all by nature born in subjection to sin and death (including separation from God). The image of God in man was marred, but not entirely lost. The restoration of that image is the goal of redemptive history, the hope of every believer, and the delight of our Sovereign King.

Salvation
We Believe that all who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ are justified on the basis of His substitutionary death. Redemption, forgiveness, adoption, and reconciliation are the experience of all who receive Him by faith.

The Church
We Believe that the church is the focal point of God's redemptive work on earth. The church is called by God to assemble for worship, prayer, encouragement and ministry, and to reach the lost by proclaiming and living the truth of His redeeming love. The church has two ordinances, instituted by Christ: water baptism and the Lord's Supper.

The Future
We Believe that God will consummate His sovereign plan with the future rapture of the church, the Tribulation, and the return of Christ to establish His kingdom on earth for one thousand years. Then comes the eternal state. And so shall we ever be with the Lord.
