We believe the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God and that men were moved by the Spirit of God to write the very words of Scripture. Therefore, we believe the Bible is without error.
We believe in one God who exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of the Father, conceived of the Holy Spirit, and born of the Virgin Mary. We believe that Jesus Christ became flesh to reveal God to man and to become the Savior of this sinful world. That Jesus was crucified, buried, and raised from the dead. That He ascended to Heaven and is today at the right hand of the Father as our intercessor.
We believe that mankind was created in the image of God to have fellowship with Him but became alienated in that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, man is incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through his own effort alone. All have sinned and have fallen short of the glory of God.
GOD’S PLAN OF SALVATION
We believe that the blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin. Therefore, salvation occurs only when people place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for their sin.
Holiness is to be God?s standard of living for His people. We believe that every Christian should live for Christ and not for himself. By obedience to the Word of God and daily yielding to the Spirit of God, every believer should mature and be conformed to the image of Christ.
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. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by loving Him and by making Him known to the world. We believe that every member of the church is divinely gifted by the Holy Spirit to play a special role in the Christian community.
We believe in water baptism by immersion, and all who repent should be baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. We also believe in remembering Christ’s love for us manifested on the cross through the Lord’s Supper.
END TIME EVENTS
We believe in the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. In the bodily resurrection of the saints of God; eternal life for the righteous in a Heavenly Kingdom, and eternal punishment for the wicked.
