our beliefs
Scripture
We believe that the Holy Scriptures both Old and New Testaments, is God-breathed; it is the only authoritative and infallible Word of God. II Tim. 3:16,17; II Peter 1:21; John 10:35, 12:47,48

God
We believe in one God who is Creator and Ruler of heaven and earth, eternally existing in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Gen. 1:1; Isaiah 44:6; Matt. 28:19, 3:16,17; II Cor. 13:14; Deut. 6:4

Christ
We believe in the Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, inerrant teachings, substitutionary death and atonement, bodily resurrection and ascension to the right hand of God. I Cor. 15:1-4; I Tim. 3:16; Acts 1:11; Matt. 1:22,23; Phil 2:8; I Cor. 15:3,4

Holy Spirit
We believe in the Holy Spirit who reproves the world of sin; by whose conviction the sinner is regenerated; by whose indwelling the Christian is sanctified and empowered to live a Godly life. Acts 26:18; I Cor. 2:10,12; Eph. 1:17, 18; Phil. 2:13, 4:13; II Cor. 3:5

Man
We believe man was created in the image and likeness of God, but in Adamís sin (being tempted by Satan) the race fell, inherited a sin nature; became alienated from God, and is in a total depraved state thus requiring salvation for reconciliation. Gen. 1:26,27, 2:7; Isaiah 53:6; Rom. 1:18-3:23, 5:12,18,19; John 3:3,5,7; II Cor. 5:17-19

Salvation
We believe that Jesus Christ died for our sins as a substitutionary sacrifice. All who receive Him by faith as Lord and Savior are justified wholly on the ground of His shed blood and are born anew of the Holy Spirit into the family of God. Rom. 5:8, 3:24; John 1:12,13; Eph. 2:8,9; Rom. 6:23; Titus 3:5

Church
We believe that the true Church, the Body of Christ, is composed of all those who have been regenerated and to it is given the ministry, oracles, and ordinances of God, for the gathering and perfecting of the saints in fulfillment of Christís great commission. John 17:20-22; I Cor. 12:12,13; Gal.4:26-29; Matt. 28:19,20; Luke 24:46-48

Christian Life
We believe that through the ministry of the Holy Spirit, the grace of God is available and sufficient for all believers, and that all of us should live soberly, righteously and godly in this present world; we are under the command of the Lord Jesus Christ to be witnesses by word and deed, proclaiming the gospel to all the world. II Cor. 12:9, 9:8; Titus 2:12; I Cor. 10:13; Matt. 28:19

Christ's Return
We believe in the imminent, visible, personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ in power and glory. John 14:1-3; I Thess. 4:14-17

Eternal Destiny
We believe in the resurrection of the saved and the lost, of the eternal blessedness of the saved and conscious punishment of the lost. Matt. 25:31-46; John 5:29; Rev. 20:15
