GOD

There is one and only one living and true God. We believe in God the Father, perfect in holiness, boundless in love, infinite in wisdom and measureless in power.

There is one and only one living and true God. We believe in Jesus Christ, God the Son, pre-existent with the Father, begotten by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary; His sinless life, making atonement for the world by His substitutionary death on the cross. We believe in His bodily resurrection, His  glorious return to earth with His saints after the Tribulation to set up His millennial reign.

There is one and only one living and true God. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God, fully divine. We believe he Indwells those who believe and enables believers to live godly lives.

HOLY SCRIPTURES

We believe that the Bible is the divine revelation, authoritative, infallible and complete Word of God, and that it is therefore our final authority in matters of faith and practice.
 
2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Proverbs 30:5-6
 

CREATION

We believe the Genesis account of creation is a literal, historical record of the direct acts of God.
 
Genesis 1:1-11
 

SIN AND MAN

We believe that man was created in the image of God; that he sinned and thereby incurred physical death and spiritual death, which is separation from God. We believe that all human beings are born with a sinful nature and are in need of salvation from their plight.
 

Genesis 1:27; Genesis 3:6-24; Romans 3:28; Romans 5:12-19

 

SATAN/DEVIL

We believe that Satan was created by God and enjoyed heavenly honors but through pride and ambition to be as the Almighty, he was cast out of Heaven by God. He is now the unholy god of this world, the enemy of God and man’s great tempter and accuser.
 
Isaiah 14:12-15; Ezekiel 28:14-17; Revelations 12:7-90; 20:1-3; 20:10
 

SALVATION

We believe salvation is offered to all men and involves the redemptive work of Jesus Christ on the Cross. God saves from sin and death, all who come to Him through Jesus Christ, His Son for Eternity.
 
Hebrews 9:14-22; John 6:44; 14:6; 1 Thessalonians 5:23; John 3:16; James 1:21
 

HEAVEN/HELL

We believe Heaven is the place of eternal blessedness for the saved and that hell is the place of eternal conscious punishment for the lost.
 
Revelation 20:11-21:8; John 5:28-29; Matthew 25:46
 

LOCAL CHURCH

We believe the Church consists of the those who have trusted Christ as Savior through faith in his Redemptive work on the cross. We believe the Church is God’s tool for reaching the world with the gospel by equipping believers with the tools and skills necessary to live out the gospel through their personal lives and that every believer should serve in the local church and to be a witness of Christ outside the church.
