Inspiration of Scripture

We believe that the Bible is God’s Word, inspired by the Holy Spirit in His exercising of divine influence over men of God, whereby they wrote the precise words that God intended. Read more…



God the Father

We believe that God is one (Is. 45:5-6; 1 Tim. 2:5) in three distinct (Mt. 27:46; Jn. 14:26), coequal (Mt. 3:16-117; 2 Cor. 13:14) and eternal Persons (Jn. 1:18; 17:5). Read more…



God the Son

We believe that Jesus, God’s Son, is fully God (Is. 9:6; John 12:41; Col. 1:16; Mt. 28:17) and yet fully man (Acts 17:31; Lk. 2:7; 1 Tim 2:5). Read more…



God the Spirit

We believe in the Spirit as a distinct Person of the Godhead, not an influence or force (Jn. 14:26). He is fully God (Acts 5:3-4; Heb 9:14), and coequal with the other Members of the Godhead (Mt. 3:16-17; 1 Pet. 1:2). Read more…



Creation

We believe that God, by speaking, created the entire universe out of nothing (ex nihilo) in six twenty-four hour days (Gen. 1, Heb. 11:3; Ex. 2:11). All three members of the Godhead had a part in creation (Gen:1:2; Ps. 33:6-9; Jn. 1:1-3; Col. 1:16). Creation, in the beginning, was perfect, sinless, and entirely good (Gen. 1:4, 31).



Sin

We believe that sin is any act of man that fails to conform to God’s holy character (Rom. 3:23; 1 Jn. 3:4; 5:17; Heb. 11:6). By the disobedience of Adam as mankind’s representative, sin entered the race (Rom. 5:12-21; 1 Cor. 15:21-22), and the earth was cursed (Gen. 3:15, Eph. 1:22, Rom. 8:19-23). Read more…



Salvation

Regarding the concept of salvation as a whole, we believe that God’s great goal is the triumph of His kingdom. He achieves this by means of salvation, which is for His own glory (Rom. 8:28-30; Eph. 1:6). Salvation is predicated upon God’s election of those whom He chooses for salvation in his sovereign grace (Eph. 1:5, 11; Rom. 8:29; 1 Pet. 1:2). This election is based upon God’s predestination (Rom. 8:29-30) which is based upon God’s foreknowledge (Rom. 8:29; 1 Pet. 1:2).



Atonement

We believe that salvation is only available through Christ’s atonement. The atonement is a general term, referring to Jesus’ death on the cross for sin. Read more…



Repentance

We believe that repentance is an active turning away from sin and turning unto God. Repentance is necessary for salvation (Heb. 6:1, 6). Read more…



Faith

We believe that faith is necessary for salvation (Mt. 9:2 Rom. 10:14; Acts 16:31). Faith is also a part of effective prayer (Mt. 21:21; Mk. 5:34; Lk. 17:6). True saving faith involves the mental apprehension of the facts of the gospel (Rom. 10:14), Read more…
