We believe the entire Bible is the “God-breathed” words of God and that men were moved by the Spirit of God to write the very words of Scripture. Therefore, we believe the Bible in its original state to be without error. We believe the Bible has been reliably preserved for us today. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21)
We believe in one God who exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ, the Son, became flesh to reveal God to man and to become the Savior of a sin-filled world. (John 1:1, John 1:14; John 14:10, John 15:26; Colossians 1:15-20)
We believe that Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born to the Virgin Mary. He led a sinless life, took on Himself our sins and punishment, died and rose again, and is our only Mediator and Advocate with God the Father. We believe He will return again to establish His kingdom. (Luke 1:34-38; Philippians 2:6-8; John 14:6; 1 John 3:5; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Hebrews 4:14-16; Matthew 25:31)
We believe in the present ministry of God the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to and gifted to live a God-honoring life. (John 14:16-17; 1 Corinthians 12:4-5, 7, 11)
We believe that the blood of Jesus Christ, shed at the cross, provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin by satisfying God’s holy justice. Therefore, salvation occurs only when a person places his or her faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for his or her sin. Furthermore, we believe in the eternality of the soul. Those who have trusted Christ will inherit eternal life and those who have rejected Him, eternal death. Baptism is an act of obedience, and an outward identification with Christ, though it is not an action that leads to or finalizes salvation. (John 3:16-18; Romans 3:23, 6:23, 5:8, 10:9-10; Acts 2:41: Romans 6:3-10)
We believe that humanity was created in the image of God to have a close relationship with Him but became alienated in that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, mankind is incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through his own effort. (Genesis 1:27; Romans 5:12; Psalms 49:7-8)
We believe that all those who call themselves Christians should live for Christ and not for themselves. By obedience to the Word of God and daily yielding to the Spirit of God, every believer should mature and begin to reflect the image of Christ their Lord. The Christian’s faith is exemplified in active concern for others. (Galatians 2:20, 5:22; Mark 12:30-31; 1 Corinthians 10:24, 31; Ephesians 4:22-24)
We believe that marriage is a sacred covenant designed by God to model the love of Christ for His people and to serve both the public and private good. Marriage is intended by God to be a thriving, lifelong relationship between a man and a woman. Christians are bound by God’s marriage design and minister in Christ’s name to all who live outside of that design. (Genesis 2:18; Matthew 19:5-6)
We believe that the church is the body of Christ, of which Jesus Christ is the head. The members of the church are those who have trusted by faith the finished work of Christ’s sacrifice on the cross. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by loving Him and by making Him known to the lost world. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ, with equality across races, genders, and classes. (1 Corinthians 12:27; Colossians 1:18; Matthew 28:19-20; Galatians 3:28)
