We believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old Testament and New Testament are the inerrant, inspired, and infallible Word of God. The Bible is trustworthy, true, and what we build our entire life upon. God’s Word is the final authority for faith and life. (2 Tim. 3:15–17; 2 Pet. 1:19–21)

We believe God is the Creator and Sustainer of the Universe. There is only one God, and He has chosen to reveal Himself as God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is one God existing in three persons—the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—referred to as the Trinity. (Gen. 1:1; Deut. 6:4)

We believe man was created in the image of God, no matter our gender, ethnicity, ability, social class, or culture. Therefore, all humans are worthy of honor and dignity and vital to the church. God made humans male and female according to their birth. The sin of Adam (the first man) marred that image, creating an eternal divide between God and man. Every person is born in sin. (Gen 1:23, 27; Matt. 28:19–20; 1 Cor. 10:31; Rom. 3:23)

We believe the only way a person can have a true, forgiven relationship with God is through Jesus Christ’s sacrifice on the cross. Jesus was born of the Virgin Mary and conceived by the Holy Spirit. Jesus became man without ceasing to be God. He was raised from death to life, as the perfect sinless sacrifice for fallen humanity. Our right standing with God is made sure because of His literal, physical resurrection. God’s purpose for us is to bring glory to God in all that we do through growing in faith and grace as we grow in a personal relationship with him.(Gen 1:23, 27; Matt. 28:19–20; 1 Cor. 10:31; Rom. 3:23)

We believe the Holy Spirit is working to shape and transform every believer to become more like Jesus through a process of sanctification. We believe in the literal, physical return of Jesus to judge the living and the dead. (Matt 27:27; John 14:1-3; Acts 2:38; 2 Thes 2:13; Heb 9:28; Rev 1:7)

We believe God offers eternal life as a free gift and that it must be received by faith alone through God’s grace alone. The life that comes from this gift is a permanent possession of the one receiving it. (Gal 2:16; Eph 2:8-9)

We believe Christianity is the only universally true religion; and that every believer has a personal responsibility, as a follower of Christ, to spend their life conveying such Truth in words, attitudes, and actions that will further the Gospel for eternal purposes in this present generation and beyond. (Matt 28:19-20; John 14:6; Acts 4:12; 2 Tim 4:5; 1 Peter 3:15; 2 Cor 5:20)
