What We Believe
We believe the entire Bible, all sixty six books of the combined Old and  
New Testaments are verbally inspired by God and are inerrant in the original  
writings. Through the providence of God, the Word of God has been protected and
preserved, and is the only infallible and authoritative rule of faith and practice.
 (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21).
 
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born
of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed many miracles, shed His blood on the cross as a
vicarious substitute, was buried, bodily resurrected, ascended to the right hand of  the
Father, and will return literally, visibly, and personally in glory and power.
(John 1:1-3, 14; Matthew 1:18-25; Philippians 2:5-9; Colossians 1:15; 
1 Corinthians 15:1-8; Acts 1:11).
 
We believe that Jesus Christ is “the way, the truth, and the life.” 
(John 14:6)
 
We believe that there is only one true, living sovereign, holy, and eternally existent
God. He exists in three co-equal persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit - each
 being a distinct person and with a distinct function, but all of one essence and all
possessing the same nature, perfection, and attributes. God is the creator and
sustainer of all things, the source of all truth, and is worthy of worship, confidence,
and obedience.
(Deuteronomy 6:4-5; Genesis 1:31).

We believe that the Holy Spirit is God, co-equal and co-existent with the Father and the Son.
 He is the chief convictor of sin, the chief agent of regeneration and sanctification.
The Holy Spirit indwells every believer and empowers every believer to live a godly life.
 (John 14:16-19; 16:7-15; 1 Corinthians 6:19-20; Romans 8:9, 11; Titus 3:5).
 
We believe that “our citizenship is in heaven and we eagerly await a Savior from
 there the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables Him to bring everything
 under His control, will transform our lowly bodies so they will be like His glorious body.”
(Philippians 3:21)
 
“And so shall we forever be with the Lord.”
(1 Thessalonians 4:17)
We believe that “salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under 
 heaven given to man by which we must be saved.”
 (Acts 4:12)

We believe “if we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not
in us.”
 (1 John 1:8)

We believe “if we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our
sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”
(1 John 1:9)

We believe that “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” and can fully
 redeem and powerfully use even those who consider they have been “the worst.” 
(1 Timothy 1:15)

We believe God “the Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness,
 but is long suffering toward us,not willing that any should perish but that all should come
 to repentance.”
(2 Peter 3:9)

We believe that all scripture is “God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking,
correcting and training in righteousness.”
 (2 Timothy 3:16)

We believe that every believer in Christ is the “temple of the Holy Spirit.”
(1 Corinthians 6:19)

We believe we have been “baptized by one Spirit into one body.”
(1Corinthians 12:13)
 
We believe we have “different kinds of gifts but the same Spirit.”
(1 Corinthians 12:4)

We believe we are to strive to “live holy and Godly lives as we look forward to
the day of God.”
 (2 Peter 3:11,12)
