THE WORD OF GOD: The Bible is the Word of God, fully inspired and without error in the original manuscripts, written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. The Bible has supreme authority over (or regarding) all matters of faith and conduct.
THE TRINITY: We believe that there is only one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons. All of them are equal in every divine perfection, and they execute distinct but harmonious office in the work of creation, providence, and redemption.
GOD THE FATHER : God, the father, is an infinite, personal spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power, and love. He concerns himself mercifully in the affairs of men, hears and answers prayer and saves from sin and death all who come to him through Jesus Christ.
JESUS CHRIST : We believe that Jesus Christ is God's only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, and teachings. We also believe in His substitutionary death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, and personal visible return to the earth.
THE HOLY SPIRIT: We believe that the Holy Spirit came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment. This was to regenerate, sanctify, and empower all who believe in Jesus Christ. He is our abiding helper, teacher, and guide.
THE CHURCH: We believe that the universal church is a living spiritual body. Jesus Christ is the head and all regenerated persons are members. The local church consists of a company of believers devoted to Jesus Christ; who associate for worship, work, and fellowship. God has laid upon members of the local church the primary task of giving the gospel of Jesus Christ to a lost world.
CHRISTIAN CONDUCT: Any Christian should live for the glory of God and the well-being of his fellow man. We also believe that his conduct should be blameless before the world. As a faithful steward of his possessions, he should seek to realize for himself and others the full stature of maturity in Christ.
REGENERATION: 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 and are justified by grace through faith.
THE ORDINANCES: The Lord Jesus Christ has committed two ordinances to the local church: baptism and the Lord's Supper. We believe that these two ordinances should be observed and administered until the return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
THE LAST THINGS: We believe that our Lord Jesus Christ will return to earth to establish his kingdom. We believe in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment, the eternal felicity of the righteous, and the eternal damnation of the lost.
