Bible: We believe the Bible to be the inspired and infallible Word of God. It is our supreme authority in all matters of faith and practice. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:21; Romans 15:4)

The Trinity: We believe in one God, creator and sustainer of all things, eternally existing in three persons; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. They execute distinct but harmonious roles in the work of creation, providence, and redemption. (Matthew 28:19; Romans 8: 16-17; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Galatians 4:4-6)

God The Father: We believe in God the Father, perfect in holiness, infinite in wisdom, measureless in power, and abounding in love. We rejoice that He concerns Himself mercifully in human affairs and hears and answers prayer. (Leviticus 11:44; 1 Kings 8:27; Job 38-41; Psalm 139; Isaiah 40:6-7; John 3:16;n 1 John 4: 8-10)

God The Son: We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, born of a virgin, and sinless in His life, who, because of His love for the lost, through His death on the cross bore the punishment for the sins of the world. We believe in His bodily resurrection, His ascent into heaven, and His future personal, visible return to judge the world according to His promise. (Romans 1:4 & 3:25-26; Matthew 1:18; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Hebrews 7:25)

God The Holy Spirit: We believe that the Holy Spirit works in us to convict, sanctify, teach, and empower us for the glory of the Lord Jesus Christ. He leads us into righteousness, peace, and joy as we await our inheritance as children of God. We believe He has gifted every believer as He wills for the benefit of the Church. (John 15:26; 16:8 & 13-15; 1 Corinthians 12:1-14; 1 John 2:26-27)

Human Nature: We believe that all people everywhere are sinners both by nature and by choice and are lost and face the judgment of God, that Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation, and that repentance of sin and faith in Jesus Christ results in regeneration by the Holy Spirit and salvation. (Luke 24:46-47; John 14:6; Acts 4:12; Romans 3:23; 2 Corinthians 5:10-11; Ephesians 1:7 and 2:8-9; Titus 3:4-7.)

The Church: We believe that the Church is the spiritual body of which Christ is the head. We believe that the true Church is composed of all persons who, through saving faith in Jesus Christ, have been baptized and regenerated by the Holy Spirit. We believe that this body manifests itself in local assemblies whose members have associated themselves for worship, for instruction, for evangelism, and for service. We also believe in the interdependence of local churches and the mutual submission of believers to each other in love. Church also must go forth into the whole world to proclaim the Gospel to the lost through word and action. (Matthew 28:19; Romans 10:9-15; 1 Corinthians 1:21; 1 Thessalonians 5:11-14; 2 Timothy 4:1-2)
