The Bible is the Word of God, inspired and without error in its original manuscripts. It is our only source of authority in matters of faith, conduct and truth.
There is one eternal God, personal and knowable, who manifests Himself in three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is worthy of our worship, confidence and obedience.
In Jesus Christ, God's only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, His sinless life, miracles, teachings, His substitutionary death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, and personal visible return to earth.
The ministry of the Holy Spirit is to convict the lost of sin, righteousness and judgement, place and seal the believer in the Body of Christ, and make real the productive things of Christ in the believer's life. We do not believe that any particular or special gift is a necessary evidence of salvation or of being filled with the Holy Spirit; although we do believe in the gifting and exercise of all Biblical gifts of the Holy Spirit.
In God the Father, an infinite, personal Spirit; perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love; that He concerns Himself mercifully with 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.
Every person is born with a sin nature, is spiritually dead and cannot please God until Christ gives Him eternal life. We believe salvation is by God's grace. It must be received by faith apart from any human performance or merit. It is a free gift of God to anyone who personally places his confidence in the Lord Jesus Christ and His finished work on the cross. We believe a truly born again person is secure in Christ.
That all believers should assemble in local congregations for mutual edification, encouragement, evangelism, service and worship. In obedience to God we participate in the signs of the New Covenant: The Lord's Supper, and Baptism by immersion in water.
In the rapture of God's church before the great tribulation, and the visible return of Jesus Christ at the beginning of the millenial kingdom, endless suffering of the wicked, and eternal life and blessing for those who respond to God's love in Christ.
