1. We believe the Holy Bible is the only inspired, infallible, and authoritative source of Christian faith and practice. The Bible is the supreme revelation from God, superior to conscience and reason, though not contrary to reason. (2Timothy 3:16-17)
2. We believe that there is one God, eternally present in three persons; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
(Genesis 1:26; Matthew 3:16-17, John 1:1-4)
3. We believe that man was created in the image of God, but as a result of sin is lost and powerless to save himself.
(Genesis 1:26; 2:16-17; Romans 6:23)
4. We believe that the only hope for man is to believe on Jesus Christ, the virgin born Son of God, fully God, fully man. Through faith in Christ's life, death, and resurrection, mankind is redeemed.
(Romans 10:9-10l, 13; John 3:16; Ephesians 2:1-10)
5. We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells all believers, and through the Holy Spirit believers are empowered for Christian service, and gifted for this service.
(Luke 11:13; Acts 1:8, 2:1-4, 8:17, 10:44-46, 19:6; Galatians 5:22-23; 1 Corinthians 12)
6. We believe that the Church is the Body of Christ, both universal and local, and is composed of individuals who through faith in Jesus Christ have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit. We believe that Christ Jesus is the Head and Lord of the Church. The mission of the Church is worship, evangelism, discipleship, and the nurturing and care of one another.
(Matthew 28:1-20; Colossians 1:18; Ephesians 2:19-22)
7. We believe that eternal life in heaven is the reward of all who believe and receive Christ as their Lord.
(Jn.3:16-17; Lk.23:43; Jn.14:2-3)
We also believe that those who do not accept Christ are condemned to an eternity apart from God’s presence, which the Bible declares to be the second death.
(Jn.14:6; John 3:18; Revelation 21:8)
8. We believe that salvation is by faith and through grace alone. No amount of good works will produce justification before God. We further believe that the manifestation of faith and grace is a holy life expressed through righteous works.
9. We believe in the calling and gifting of various ministries in the Church, including but not limited to apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, teachers, and deacons. We believe that the Church has responsibility for recognizing, equipping, and commissioning these various ministries for the edification of the Body of Christ.
(Ephesians 4:11-13; 1 Corinthians 12:12-30; Romans 12:3-8)
10. We believe that divine healing; physical, emotional, and spiritual is included in the atonement of Christ.
Isaiah 53:4; Matthew 8:17; 1 Peter 2:24-25)
11. We believe in two sacraments of the Church; a) The Sacrament of Water Baptism. b) The Sacrament of Holy Communion.
(Acts 2:38; Matthew 26:26-30)
12. We believe in the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ, the consummation of the Kingdom of God, and the restitution of all things spoken by the mouth of all the prophets since the world began.
(Matthew 24:42-44; Acts 1:11; 3:19-21; Revelation 11:15)
