What We Believe

We believe all Scripture, both Old and New Testament, was given by inspiration of God as the writers were moved by the Holy Spirit to write the very words of God, and that the Holy Bible is the only rule of faith and practice.
(2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:20-21)

We believe in the one true God who has revealed Himself as existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, distinguishable but indivisible.
(Matthew 28:19, Luke 3:21-22)

We believe the human race was originally created by God in His image, until sin entered by disobedience and rebellion and left humanity totally incapable of saving itself.
(Romans 5:12, Genesis 1:27)

We believe in the bodily ascension of Jesus to heaven, His exaltation as Lord to the right hand of the Father, and His literal, physical return the second time for the Church.
(John 14:2-3, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)

We believe in the salvation of sinners by grace through repentance and faith in the perfect and sufficient work of Christ upon the cross by the which we obtain the remission of sins through His shed blood.
