What we believe

OF THE SCRIPTURES

We believe in the verbal, plenary inspiration and the infallible, unlimited inerrancy of the Bible. (II Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:19-21)

OF THE TRUE GOD

We believe there is one, and only one, living and true God, and infinite Spirit. (Exodus 20:2-3, I Corinthians 8:6, I John 5:7 , and Revelation 4:11 )

OF JESUS CHRIST

We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, who is the second person of the Triune God, the Eternal Word, and only Begotten Son. (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:18-25 , John 1:1-4 , Colossian 2:9, Hebrews 4:15 , I John 2:1-2 )

OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

We believe that the Holy Spirit is a divine person, equal with God the Father and God the Son and of the same nature. (Genesis 1:1-3, Matthew 28:19 , Mark 1:8 , Luke 24:49 , John 3:5-6 , John 14:16-17,26 , John 16:8-11 , Acts 11:16 , Acts 5:30-32 , Romans 8:14,16,26-27 , Ephesians 1:13-14 , and Hebrews 9:14 )

OF SATAN OR THE DEVIL

We believe that Satan is a real being, the fallen angel, the unholy one of this age, the prince and power of this world (Matthew 4:1-3, II Corinthians 4:4, Revelation 20:1-3,7-10 )

OF CREATION

We accept the Genesis account of creation and believe that man and the universe came by direct creation of God. (Genesis 1 and 2 , Colossians 1:16-17 , John 1:3 )

OF THE VIRGIN BIRTH

We believe that Jesus was begotten of the Holy Spirit in a miraculous manner, born of the Virgin Mary, and that He is both the Son of God and God the Son. (Genesis 3:15, Isaiah 7:14 , Matthew 1:18-25 , Luke 1:35 , John 1:4 )

OF THE ATONEMENT FOR SIN

We believe that the salvation of sinners is wholly by grace through faith in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. (Isaiah 53:4-7; Matthew 18:11 ; John 3:16 ; Acts 15:11 ; Romans 3:14,25 ; I Corinthians 15:3; II Corinthians 5:12; Ephesians 2:8 ; Hebrews 2:14 ; Philippians 2:7 : I John 4:10 )

OF THE LOCAL CHURCH

We believe that a local church is a congregation of baptized believers, associated by the covenant of faith and fellowship of the Gospel (Colossians 1:18; Acts 2:42 ; Acts 15:13-18 ; Acts 20:17-28 ; Ephesians 1:22-23 ; Ephesians 4:11 ; Ephesians 5:23 ; I Corinthians 11:22; I Timothy 3:1-7)
