OUR BELIEFS
 THE BIBLE
We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the inspired Word of God, inerrant in the original writings, complete as the revelation of God’s will for salvation, and supplement and final authority in faith and life. We believe that Scripture in its entirety originated with God and that it was given through the pens of chosen men. Therefore both speaks with the authority of God and reflects the background, styles, and vocabularies of the human authors.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 | 2 Peter 1:19-21
 
 JESUS CHRIST THE SON  
We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s eternal Son. He is true God and true human, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. We believe that He lived a sinless life on earth and died a substitutionary death on the cross, that His sacrifice for the sins of all people satisfied God’s justice, and that all who believe in Him are freed from the penalty of sin and made acceptable before God on the grounds of His sin-payment. We believe in His bodily resurrection from the dead, His ascension into heaven, His current ministry of prayer on behalf of His people, and His visible return from heaven.
Matthew 1:18-23 | Luke 24:1-8 | John 1:1, 14 | Acts 1:11 | 2 Corinthians 5:19-21 | Hebrews 4:14-16 | 1 John 2:1 | Revelation 19, 20
 
 GOD THE FATHER
We believe in God the Father, an infinite personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, justice, power and love. We believe He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of humanity, hears and answers prayer, and saves from death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.
John 16:23-27 | Galatians 4:4-6 | Ephesians 1:3, 17-23
 
 THE TRINITY 
We believe in one God, creator and sustainer of all things, eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, each of Whom possesses equally all the attributes of deity and the characteristics of personality.
Genesis 1:26 | Deuteronomy 6:4 | Matthew 3:16-17; 28:1
 THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe in the Holy Spirit. He is fully God, sent into the world by the Father and the Son to apply the saving work of Christ to humanity. He enlightens the minds of sinners, awakens in them recognition of their need of a Savior, and brings rebirth and renewal to them. At the point of salvation He permanently indwells every believer, and subsequently uniquely endows each believer with gifts for building the church.
Matthew 28:19-20 | John 3:5 | Acts 1:8, 5:3-4 | 1 Corinthians 6:11, 19; 12:4-13 | Ephesians 3:5-6, 4:11 | 1 Peter 4:10
