What We Believe

We believe…in one true God, who exists eternally as one God in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; the same in substance, equal in power and glory.

We believe…that the Bible, consisting of the Old and New Testaments, is the unique, inerrant, inspired Word of God, and is the final authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

We believe…in the sovereign and active rule of God in creation, history, revelation, redemption, and in the final judgment.

We believe…that man was created by God in His image, but that since Adam’s sin, all men are sinful and subject to God’s wrath and condemnation.

We believe…that Jesus is the only begotten Son of God, fully human and fully divine, that he has eternally existed as God, yet was born in time of a virgin, and that He lived a sinless and perfect life.

We believe…in the historic death of Jesus as the full and only atonement for our sins, in His bodily resurrection from the dead, and in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, where He rules as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

We believe…that we are justified only by the grace of God through faith alone, only on the basis of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

We believe…that those who are justified are also sanctified, only by the grace of God, through faith alone, and that their lives will be characterized by good works and increasing holiness.

We believe…that the Holy Spirit is present and actively applying the work of Christ to believers in regenerating and sanctifying them so that they become more like Christ in all things.

We believe…in one invisible, universal church, the Body of Christ, to which all true believers belong, and in particular visible Churches governed by officers with the authority to rule in matters of belief and discipline.

We believe…in the bodily, visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ in glory.

We believe…in a final resurrection, when the redeemed will be raised to enjoy God forever in His presence, and the unredeemed will be raised to judgment and everlasting punishment in hell.
