Beliefs

God the Father

We believe in God, the Father, an infinite, personal spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love.  We believe that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men, that He hears and answers prayer and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.  (Genesis 1:1,26,27; 3:22, Psalm 90:2, Matthew 28:19, I Peter 1:2, II Corinthians 13:14, Ephesians 4:6, I Timothy 2:5)

Jesus Christ

We believe in Jesus Christ, God's only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit.  We believe His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles and teachings.  We believe in His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people and personal visible return to earth.  (Matthew 1:22-23, Isaiah 9:6, John 1:1-14; 14:10-30, Hebrews 4:14-15, I Corinthians 15:3-4, Romans 1:3-4, 8:34, Acts 1:9-11, I Timothy 6:14-15, Titus 2:13)

The Holy Spirit

We believe the Holy Spirit is equal with God the Father and God the Son.  The Holy Spirit who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify and empower all who believe in Jesus Christ.  We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Christ, and that He is an abiding helper, teacher and guide. (John 16:7-13; 14:16-17, Acts 1:8, I Corinthians 2:12; 3:16; 12:1-7, Ephesians 1:13, II Corinthians 3:17, Galatians 5:25, Ephesians 5:18)

The Trinity

We believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons; that these are equal in every divine perfection, and that they execute distinct but harmonious offices in the work of creation, providence and redemption. (Ephesians 2:18, II Corinthians 13:14)

Regeneration

We believe that all men are sinners by nature and by choice and are, therefore, under condemnation.  We believe that those who repent of their sins and trust in Jesus Christ as Savior are regenerated by the Holy Spirit.  (Romans 3:23; 6:23, Ephesians 2:8-10, John 14:6; 1:12, Titus 3:5, Galatians 3:26, Romans 5:1)

Last Things

We believe in the personal and visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ to earth and the establishment of His kingdom.  We believe in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment, the eternal felicity of the endless suffering of the wicked.  (John 3:16, I John 2:25; 5:11-13, Romans 6:23, I Thessalonians 4:14-18,  Revelation 20:11-15)

The Bible

We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, fully inspired and without error in the original manuscripts, written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and that it has supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.  (I Timothy 1:13, II Timothy 3:16-17, II Peter 1:20-21, I, Psalm 119:105,160, Psalm 12:6, Proverbs 30:5)
