We believe that the Bible is God’s written word, without error or defect, written by men under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. Hence, the Bible is God’s supreme and final authority for how we ought to believe and live.
We believe in one true God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. While they are one God in essence, each is personally distinct from the other.
We believe that God freely created from nothing all things through His Son Jesus Christ. He alone is the sustainer of all things, sovereign in His rule over all things, to the end that His glory might be made fully manifest to all creation.
We believe that God created, as the crown of His creation, man and woman in His own image that they may enjoy God forever. Tempted by Satan, they rebelled against God and fell into the bondage of sin. Estranged from their Maker, they became incapable of returning to God apart from His intervention.
We believe Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God. Being born of a virgin through the Holy Spirit, Jesus is perfect Deity and true humanity united in one person forever. Jesus offered Himself as a sacrifice on the cross for our redemption, was buried, resurrected on the third day, and has ascended to the right hand of His Father in heaven as our advocate. Someday soon, He will return to earth to consummate history and fulfill God’s eternal plan.
We believe in the Holy Spirit who is present in the world to convict people of their sin and draw them to believe in the risen Christ. He indwells, teaches, gifts, and intercedes for each believer, empowering and equipping them to administer God’s grace to the lost, the poor, and the oppressed.
We believe God’s salvation is granted the precise moment a person places his/her trust in Christ alone as Lord and Savior. This salvation is a free gift of God and not based on human merit. The believer is justified by God--Christ becoming sin on our behalf so we might become the righteousness of God in Him--and is adopted as a child of God and joint heir with Christ.
We believe all believers are members of the body of Christ, the one true church universal. It is the Church alone that has been entrusted with the mission of bringing God’s message of hope to a lost people and raising them to grow and conform to the likeness of Christ.
