We believe in God the Father, perfect in holiness, infinite in wisdom, measureless in power. He concerns Himself in our affairs; He hears us and answers prayer; and He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.
We believe in Jesus Christ, uniquely eternal and begotten, the Son of God, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin, Mary. He is truly God and truly man. He was tempted in every way that every man is tempted, but He never sinned. He made amends for the sins of the world by His death, and He defeated death by His bodily resurrection. He ascended into heaven, and today He ministers as High Priest and Advocate. He will return for His children, and He will establish His kingdom.
We believe in the Holy Spirit. He is the eternal Spirit of God, sent by the Father and the Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment. He imparts new birth, and glorifies the Son. He is the One who baptizes, seals, sanctifies, teaches, comforts, and gives spiritual gifts to those who believe in Jesus Christ.
We believe that the Bible is God’s Word, that is was written by men divinely inspired, and that it is the supreme and infallible authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
We believe that men and women were created in the image of God and that they chose to sin and thereby incurred both physical and spiritual death. Thus by our nature, choices, and deeds we are all sinners and, apart from Christ, shall be forever separated from God. The Good News is that there is forgiveness of sins through the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ. For those who put their faith in Jesus, there is a new life of hope in God and freedom from the penalty of sin.
We believe in the church universal, a living spiritual body of which Christ is the Head and of which all believers in Christ are members. We also believe the local church, God’s visible assembly in a community. The local church exists for the glory of God and its mission is to make mature disciples of Jesus through worship, community and the proclamation of the Gospel both locally and globally.
