What we believe:

  1. The Scriptures:  We believe that the entire Bible, all
    66 books are inspired by God and inerrant in the
    original writings.  Through the providence of God, the
    Word of God has been protected and preserved, and
    is the only infallible and authoritative rule of faith and
    practice.  (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Psalm
    119:11, 89, 105)
  2. God:  We believe there is only One true, eternally
    existent God.  He exists in three co-equal persons:  
    Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  The triune God is the
    Creator and Sustainer of all things, and is worthy of
    worship and obedience.  (Genesis 1:31, Luke 3:21-22;
    Matthew 28:18-20; Revelation 4:11)
  3. Jesus Christ:  We believe that Jesus Christ is God.  
    He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin,
    lived a sinless life, performed miracles, shed His
    blood on the cross to pay the debt for our sins; was
    buried, bodily resurrected, ascended to the right
    hand of the Father; and will return literally, visibly, and
    personally in glory and power.  (John 1:1-3; Matthew
    1:18-25; Philippians 2:5-9; Colossians 1:15; 1
    Corinthians 15:1-8; Acts 1:11)
  4. Holy Spirit:  We believe that the Holy Spirit is God, co-
    equal and co-existent with the Father and the Son.  
    He is the chief convector of sin and chief agent of
    regeneration and sanctification.  The Holy Spirit lives
    within every believer and empowers every believer to
    live a godly life.  (John 14:16-19, 16:7-15; 1
    Corinthians 6:19-20; Romans 8:9, 11; Titus 3:5)
  5. Salvation:  We believe salvation is a free gift of God's
    grace apart from human works, based solely upon
    Christ's atoning death, received only through faith in
    the person and finished work of Jesus Christ on the
    cross and His resurrection from death.  (Ephesians 2:
    8-10; 2 Corinthians 5:21)
  6. The Church:  We believe the church is the body of
    Christ and the family of God.  It is made up of saved
    and baptized believers, who regularly join together
    for worship, fellowship and ministry.  (Matthew 16:18;
    1 Corinthians 12:12-14; Hebrews 10:25)
  7. Evangelism:  We believe that it is the responsibility
    and privilege of every Christian to proclaim the Good
    News of Jesus Christ and to seek to make growing
    disciples.  (Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8)
