Our Beliefs

SCRIPTURE

The Bible is God’s divine Word written and recorded by human authors under the direct supervision of God without error in their original writings, containing the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of man along with the divine and authoritative teachings for Christian faith and life.

GOD AS TRIUNE

There is one God, eternally existing in Three Persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, each fully God and of the same divine essence.

The Father is the Creator of the heavens and the earth. The Father begets the Son and sends the Spirit.

Jesus Christ is the Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, and of the same essence as the Father. The Son is fully human and fully divine, united within the single person.

The Spirit maintains His own personhood and deity as the third person of the Trinity.

HUMANITY

Man was created in God’s image in the form of two sexes (male and female) without sin.

God is the author of marriage according to the teachings of the Bible. Marriage is to be defined as between one man and one woman.

All of humanity is fallen because of the entrance of sin through Adam. Man is totally lost and separated (presently and eternally) from God, utterly unable to remedy his lost condition.

SALVATION

Humanity is ultimately restored through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, who has brought us from death to life. Salvation from our fallen state is found in the grace of God and received through faith alone.

There will be a bodily resurrection of all people, the saved to eternal life, and the unsaved to judgment and everlasting punishment. Christ’s return is imminent, at which time He will gather the elect, both those alive and dead in Christ and transform them with resurrected bodies like Him who is the firstfruits from the dead.

CHURCH

The Church universal is expressed in local churches - a group of believers in a particular location - where these members not only attend services, but are active members of Christ’s body which is called to make disciples in this world. Local churches are the gathering of God’s people, the household of God, the bride of Christ, and the body of Christ.
