What We Believe

We believe that the Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God, and that it shall remain to the end of the age the only complete and final revelation of the will of God to man.  We interpret it literally and accept it as the supreme and final authority in faith and life.

We believe that there is one God, Almighty, Creator, and Sustainer of the universe and eternally existent in three persons:  Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

 

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in the virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His death and bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father and His imminent personal return to earth in power and glory.

 

We believe that the Holy Spirit is a divine person, equal with God the Father and God the Son; that He was active in the creation, participated in the inspiration of the Scriptures, and is presently engaged in convicting the world of sin, judgment and righteousness; and that He bears witness to the truth of the Gospel and indwells Christians to enable them to live Godly lives.

 

We believe in the Genesis account of creation; that man was created directly in God's own image and after His own likeness, and not by evolution; and that man was created in innocence, but voluntarily sinned.  As a consequence, all men are now sinners, inclined to evil, and are under just condemnation without defense or excuse.

 

We believe that God has provided the only salvation for man through the death and resurrection of His Son Jesus; that salvation is achieved through the conviction of sin by the Holy Spirit and faith in Jesus Christ as Savior; and that all who are truly born again are kept by God the Father for Jesus Christ.

 

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost:  those who are saved unto  the resurrection of eternal life in Heaven and those who are lost unto the resurrection of eternal damnation in Hell.
