THE INERRANCY OF THE BIBLE

The scriptures, which include the Old and New Testaments, are divinely inspired and represent the infallible and authoritative word of God in all matters of faith and conduct. (2 Timothy 3:15-17; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Peter 1:21)

BELIEF IN THE ONE TRUE GOD

There is one eternal God, existent in three persons- God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 43:10-11; Matthew 28:19; Luke 3:22)

JESUS CHRIST IS FULLY GOD AND FULLY MAN

The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. Born of a virgin. (Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:31-35) Lived a sinless life. (Hebrews 7:26; 1 Peter 2:22; Hebrews 4:15) Died on the cross to atone for our sins. (1 Corinthians 15:3; 2 Corinthians 5:21) Physically rose from the dead. (Acts 1:9; Acts 2:32; Hebrews 1:3) Now sits at the right hand of His Father. (Acts 2:33; Hebrews 10:12) He will return to earth in power and glory (Zechariah 14:5; Matthew 24:27; Revelation 19:11-14)

SALVATION

Man’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. We are saved by grace through faith when we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, and we are cleansed from sin through repentance and regeneration of the Holy Spirit. (John 3:3; Luke 24:46-47; Romans 10:13; Ephesians 2:8; Titus 3:5-7; John 6:63)

HOLY SPIRIT

The Holy Spirit, our abiding Helper, Teacher and Guide, indwells and empowers every believer in Jesus Christ. (Romans 8:11; Romans 8:26-27; John 14:16-17; Isaiah 61; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 2:10)

THE CHURCH

We believe the church is the body of Christ, the fellowship of all believers. Christians have been called out from the world to obey the teachings of Christ and serve as His ambassadors and co-laborers. (Matthew 18:18-20; John 15:19-20; Ephesians 1:22-23; Ephesians 5:23; 1 Corinthians 3:9; 2 Corinthians 5:20)

BAPTISM

While we recognize that the act of Baptism is observed in varying ways amongst different fellowships, it is our conviction and practice to baptize new believers by submersion. (Matthew 28:19; Acts 10:47)

HOLY COMMUNION

The Lord’s Supper is a symbolic act of obedience in which we partake of the bread and the fruit of the vine, remembering the death of Jesus and anticipating His second coming. (1 Corinthians 11:23-26)

ETERNITY

There will be a final judgment and the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting damnation. (Matthew 25:46; Mark 9:43-48; Revelation 19:20, Revelation 21:8)
