What We Believe

  • The divine inspiration and authority of the Scriptures as originally given, and their supreme authority in
    all matters of faith and conduct.

  • The unity of God in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

  • The creation of all things, both visible and invisible, by the Word of God; all creation being in, through
    and for, Jesus Christ the eternal Son of God.

  • The universal sinfulness and guilt of man since the Fall, rendering him subject to God's wrath and
    condemnation and necessitating the regeneration of his whole being.

  • Redemption from the guilt, penalty and power of sin only through the sacrificial death
    (as our Representative and Substitute) of Jesus Christ, the incarnate Son of God.

  • The bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.

  • The expectation of the personal return of Jesus Christ.

  • The resurrection of the just and the unjust.

  • The eternal punishment of the impenitent.

  • The necessity of the word of the Holy Spirit to make the death of Christ effective to the individual sinner,
    granting him repentance toward God and faith in Jesus Christ
    .
  • The indwelling and work of the Holy Spirit, granting new life to the Believer and making gifts to the church.

  • The unity and common priesthood of all believers, who together form the one Universal Church, the body
    of which Christ is the head.
