The Bible

We believe that Scripture – consisting of sixty-six books in the Old and New Testaments – is the only divinely inspired and infallible Word of God. We believe that Scripture centers about the Lord Jesus Christ. Scripture is the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct. (2 Tm 3:16-17; 1 Thes 2:13; 2 Pt 1:19-21; 1 Tm 4:12-13; Jas 1:21-25)


We believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing as three persons – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit – who are equal in power and glory. This Triune God created all, upholds all, and governs all. (Dt 6:4; Mt 28:19; Eph 2:18)


We believe that Jesus Christ our Lord is the Son of God – both fully God and fully man – and the Savior of the world. Through His life, death, and resurrection, He atoned for sin and made provision for the redemption of mankind. (Mt 1:18-25; Jn 1:14; 3:16; Rom 3:25; 1 Tm 3:16; Heb 2:9; 1 Pt 3:18)

The Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit, the third person of the blessed Trinity, brings people into a saving relationship with God, and that He is the Comforter, Sanctifier, and Guide of all who receive Jesus Christ as personal Savior. (Jn 3:3-8; 14:16-18,26; 16:8-11,13,15; Ti 3:5; Rom 15:16; 2 Thes 2:13)

Man and Sin

We believe that man was created in the image of God, for the purpose of glorifying God. We believe that as a result of the Fall, sin entered into the human race as a universal condition, and that sin caused the whole human race to die. (Ge 1:27; 3:1-6; Rom 5:12,18; 3:10-12,23)


We believe that repentance for sin and reception of Jesus Christ as personal Savior is the one and only way whereby sinful man may be reconciled with God. (Acts 4:12; 1 Jn 5:12)

The Church

We believe that the Church is the body of believers united in Christ with Him as the head. The Church, invisible and universal, is composed of the redeemed of all ages. The local church is the visible manifestation of the Church. (Acts 2:46-47; Mt 16:18; Eph 4:4-6,11-16; 5:23)


We believe that baptism by water is the public confession of Christ as Savior and Lord. It is a symbol of one’s union, by faith, with Christ in death, burial, and resurrection. (Mt 28:19; Acts 2:38-41; Rom 6:3-5) We believe that the Lord’s Supper of partaking corporately of the bread and cup should be observed by all believers. (1 Cor 11:23-34; Lk 22:19-20)

The Return of Christ

We believe that at the end of the age, the Lord Jesus Christ shall descend from heaven to redeem His people into eternal life, and to judge the wicked into eternal death. (1 Pt 4:7; Acts 1:11; 24:15; Mt 25:31-46; 1 Thes 4:14-17)
