What We Believe

WE BELIEVE:

That the Bible is the verbally inspired Word of God and without mistakes as originally given. It is the complete revelation of His will for salvation and the only unfailing rule of faith and practice for the Christian life.

In one God, Creator of all things, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and that these three are co-eternal and of equal power.

In the deity of Jesus Christ; His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit; His virgin birth; His sinless life; His substitutionary death on a cross; His bodily resurrection; His ascension to the right hand of the Father; and His personal, imminent return.

That man was created by and for God; that by man’s disobeying God, every person incurred spiritual death, which is separation from God, and physical death as a consequence; and that all people are sinners by nature and practice.

That the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins and that all who trust in Him, and Him alone are declared righteous because of His sacrificial death and are, therefore, in the right relationship with God.

In the present ministry of the Holy Spirit indwelling all believers and thus enabling and empowering the life and ministry of the believer.

In the bodily resurrection of everyone who has lived, the everlasting life and eternity in heaven for those who have accepted Jesus Christ, and the everlasting punishment of those who have rejected God’s forgiveness in His Son.

Baptism (immersion) and Communion (the Lord’s Supper) are the two ordinances of the church and are outward symbols of the inward experience of having received new life in Christ.
