  • SCRIPTURE: We believe that the Scriptures are the divinely inspired, inerrant, authoritative Word of God as originally given; the relevant guide from God for relationships and daily living (II Tim.3:16,17).
  • GOD: We believe in one God eternally existing in three equally perfect and important Persons with one divine nature: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit (Deut.6:4, II Cor.1:3,4, Act 5:3,4, Col.1:13-15, John 10:30).
  • JESUS: We believe that Jesus is the divine and eternal Son of God. We believe in His virgin birth, real humanity, full deity, death for our sins, literal resurrection, and Second Coming as the King of Kings(Is.9:6, Matt.1:21-25, Mark 13:24-26,  I Cor.15:1-4, Phil.1:9-11, Heb.1:8). 
  • HOLY SPIRIT: We believe that the Holy Spirit is the divine member of the Godhead who convicts, baptizes us into the Body of Christ, regenerates, seals our salvation, indwells, teaches, and empowers all believers to manifest the character of Christ (Acts 5:3,4, John 16:7-11, I Cor.12:12.12, Titus 3:5, Ephes.1:13, John 14:26, Rom.8:11-16, Gal.5:22-24, II Cor.4:11). 
  • SALVATION: We believe that salvation is by the grace of God through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Baptism is not a means of salvation, but is a public declaration that Christ has saved us. This salvation cannot be lost.  Those who refuse salvation will suffer in hell forever. Those who receive salvation will enjoy a relationship with Jesus now on earth, and will dwell in heaven with Him forever (Ephes.1:8,9,   Acts 16:30,31, Heb.13:5, John 3:16, Matt.23:33,  John 15:9-11, John 14:1-3).
  • CHURCH: We believe that the local church is a body of praying, baptized believers with godly leaders who are all committed to following the Lord Jesus and His Word. The church meets regularly together to worship, encourage one another, observe Jesus’ two ordinances, and to generously use their time, gifts, abilities, and resources to be His loving witness to their community and world (Acts 2:41-47, I Pet.5:1-5, Heb.10:24-25, I Pet.4:8-11, Acts 1:8).
