We believe in the one true God, eternally existent in Three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Deut. 6:4, 2 Cor. 13:14. We recognize the Deity and sinless humanity of the Lord Jesus Christ.
We hold to the Divine inspiration and authority of the Scriptures in their entirety, in all matters of faith and conduct. 1 Cor. 2:13, 2 Peter 1:20, 21.
We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but through Adam’s sin became alienated from God and acquired a sin nature incapable of pleasing God. Romans 3:19-23, Eph. 2:12. Hell is the eternal destination for those who will not accept Christ. God provided a sin-bearer in the Person of His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, who bore man’s sins on His own body on the Cross, shedding His precious blood and thus provided a way for man to be redeemed to God. John 1:1-2; Romans 5:6 – 8; 1 Peter 2:24.
We believe in the bodily ascension of the Lord Jesus Christ into heaven and in His personal, imminent return one day to receive up all those who have by faith put their trust in His finished work on the Cross. Romans 3:24, 1 Thess. 4:14-17.
We believe that the Holy Spirit dwells in all true believers who comprise His Church here on earth. The Holy Spirit working in all such enables them to live for His glory while in the body. John 14:16-17; Romans 5:5.
We believe it is the privilege and responsibility of every believer to be a living testimony for Him while here, and to use each opportunity that He provides to be a witness of His love.
