We believe in the one true God, having no beginning and no end, as revealed in the Word of God. He manifests Himself in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit – each equal and of the same essence and fullness, yet unique in their workings and ministry.
We believe the Bible is God’s revelation of Himself through men of old who wrote by inspiration of the Holy Spirit. It is completely true and trustworthy as it is the expression of the perfect character and essence of the Godhead and His dealings with man.
The Son – Jesus Christ
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Living Word of God, existing from eternity to eternity, fully God and fully man. In the fullness of time, He was sent of the Father, born of a virgin, lived a sinless perfect life, died on the cross as the vicarious substitute for the sinner, was buried, and on the third day was resurrected, the work of salvation complete in Him. He is now seated at the right hand of the Father where He makes intercession for the saints.
We believe that the salvation of man comes only through grace by faith in the person and completed work of the Lord Jesus Christ. Salvation is the free gift of the Father to those who believe and cannot be earned or merited by man’s works.
The Christian Life
We believe the Holy Spirit convicts men of sin, calls them to the Savior, regenerates the dead in spirit, sanctifies and indwells the believer, and empowers the Christian to live, not for themselves, but to the glory of God. We believe that a Christian life is one that is lived in obedience to the Word of God, in fellowship with God, and as an expression of love for God and other people.
The Great Commission
We believe that Jesus Christ commissioned those who believe on Him to go and preach the Gospel to all nations. It is the duty and privilege of Christians everywhere to be used by God to tell others of Himself, the call to repentance, the equipping of the believer, and the fellowship of the saints throughout the world. To be effective in ministry, we believe that Christians must be living a Christian life, such that their words and actions are telling the same story. Christians are not perfect people, but they are people who are seeking to love and obey God in their daily life.
