What We Believe
THE WORD The Old and New Testaments of the Bible are the inspired Word of God in the original writings without error and full revelation of His will for the salvation of men. They are the divine and final authority for Christian faith and life.
GOD There is only one true God, who created all things, infinitely & perfectly existing in three Manifestations: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
JESUS Jesus Christ being true God and true man, was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He died on the cross, the complete and final sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. Furthermore, He rose from the dead and ascended into heaven to perfect all things.
HOLY SPIRIT The Holy Spirit is the supernatural power of God available to all believers, empowering them to walk in newness of life.
MAN Man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and is therefore lost, and only through repentance of sins and regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained.
SALVATION The shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only means for justification and salvation for all who believe, and only those who receive Jesus Christ by faith are born of the Holy Spirit and therefore become children of God.
BAPTISM Water baptism by immersion soon after accepting Christ as personal Savior, is a testimony of death to sin and resurrection to a new life.
CHURCH The true Church is composed of all such persons, who through the saving faith in Jesus Christ, have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the body of Christ of which He is the head.
