We believe in the verbal and plenary inspiration of the Bible, consisting of the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments, the Word of God, inerrant in the original writings, the complete and unalterable special revelation of God, and our final authority.
We believe in one Triune God, eternally existing in three persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – co-eternal in being, co-identical in nature, co-equal in power and glory, and having the same attributes and perfections. God is from everlasting to everlasting the same, the direct creator of all things, omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent.
THE PERSON & WORK OF CHRIST
We believe the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man, without ceasing to be God, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He lived a sinless life unto the revelation of God and the redemption of man. We believe the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption through His death on the cross as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice. He completed our justification by His literal and physical resurrection from the dead. He ascended to heaven and is now exalted at the right hand of God.
THE PERSON & WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe the Holy Spirit convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment; He regenerates and baptizes into the body of Christ those who believe; and He indwells and seals them unto the day of redemption. The Holy Spirit endows teachers to equip the saints for the work of the ministry and bestows spiritual gifts upon believers for Christian service.
THE TOTAL DEPRAVITY OF MAN
We believe man was created in the image and likeness of God; in Adam’s sin the race fell, inherited a sinful nature, and became alienated from God; and man is totally depraved and unable to remedy his lost condition.
SALVATION AND SECURITY
We believe the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice for all people. All who trust Him are saved by grace through faith on the grounds of His shed blood; they are accepted in the beloved, kept by God’s power, and thus secure in Christ forever.
We believe the Church, which began on the day of Pentecost, is the body and bride of Christ. It is the spiritual organism made up of all born‑again persons in this present age and that the establishment and continuance of local churches is clearly taught and defined in the New Testament Scriptures.
We believe the Lord Jesus Christ established two ordinances for the Church. These are believer’s water baptism, practiced by immersion, and the Lord’s Supper, observed as a memorial of His death.
THE PERSONALITY OF SATAN
We believe Satan is a created being, the author of sin, the tempter in the fall, the declared enemy of God and man, and the god of this age. He shall be eternally punished in the lake of fire.
We believe the triune God, by a free act and for His own glory, without the use of existing materials or secondary causes, created the universe immediately and instantaneously in six days by the word of His mouth.
THE RETURN OF CHRIST
We believe in the personal, imminent, pre-tribulational and pre-millennial coming of the Lord Jesus Christ for His redeemed ones. We believe that at the end of the seven‑year tribulation as revealed in the Book of Revelation, He will return to earth with the saints in power and glory to reign for a thousand years.
THE ETERNAL STATE
We believe in the bodily resurrection of all men: the saved to eternal life, and the unsaved to judgment and everlasting punishment. We believe that the souls of the redeemed are, at death, absent from the body and present with the Lord, where in conscious bliss they await the first resurrection, when spirit, soul, and body are reunited to be glorified forever with the Lord.
