What We Believe


We believe that there is one God, creator and sustainer of all things, infinite in love, perfect in judgments, and unchanging in mercy. God exists eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
(Deut. 6:4; Isa. 43:10-11; Matt. 28:19; Lk. 3:22)

We believe in the divine inspiration, truthfulness, and authority of both the Old and New Testaments, the only written Word of God, without error in all it affirms. The Scriptures are the only infallible rule of faith and practice. The Holy Spirit preserves God's Word in the church today and by it speaks God's truth to peoples of every age.
(2 Tim. 3:15-17; 1 Thess. 2:13; 2 Pet. 1:20-21)

We believe human beings were created in the image of God. This image was marred in every part through the disobedience of our first parents, and fellowship with God was broken. God, by His love and grace, restores moral sensibility to all humankind and enables all to respond to His love and to accept His saving grace, if they will
(Gen 1:26-27; Gen 2:7; John 3:16; Rom 5:17)

Jesus Christ

We believe Jesus Christ is God's Son incarnate, born of the Virgin Mary. Jesus died for the sins of all, taking God's judgment upon Himself, on behalf of sinful persons. He rose bodily from the grave and ascended to the right hand of the Father where He intercedes for us
(Matt. 1:23; 1 Cor. 15:3-4; Rom 8:34; Heb 2:9-10)

Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is God present and active in the world. The Holy Spirit was given to the church in His fullness at Pentecost. By the Spirit, Christ lives in His church, the gospel is proclaimed, and the kingdom of God is manifested in the world.
(Acts 1:8; 2:4; 1Pet 1:12; Eph 1:13-14)


We believe God graciously justifies and gives new life to all who through repentance and faith, trust in Jesus Christ. Believers become children of God and begin to live in holiness through faith in Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit.
(Rom 1:16; Rom 3:23-24;1 John 3:1-2)


We believe God calls all believers to live sanctified (separated) lives of obedience and full surrender. The grace and power ofÊthe Holy Spirit delivers them fromÊa heart of rebellion toward God, and makes possible wholehearted love for God and for others. This grace does not make believers faultless nor prevent the possibility of their falling into sin. They must live daily by faith in the forgiveness and cleansing provided for them in Jesus Christ.
(1 Pet. 1:13-16; 1 Thess 4:3-7; Romans 12:1-2)
