Beliefs

The Trinity

We believe – There is one and only one living and true eternal God (Isaiah 45:5-6).  He is the Creator, Redeemer, and Ruler of the universe.  He has eternally existed (Psalms 90:2) in three personalities: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (2 Corinthians 13:14). These three are co-equal and are one God

Deity of Christ

We believe – Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man.  He was born of the Virgin Mary (Mathew 1:23), lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on the cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended into heaven (Ephesians 4:8) and is now exalted at the right hand of God (Hebrews 10:12) where He is the One Mediator, fully God, fully man (1 Timothy 2:5), in whose Person is effected the reconciliation between God and man. He will return in power and glory to judge the world and to consummate His redemptive mission.

The Holy Spirit

We believe – The Holy Spirit inspired holy men of old to write the Scriptures (2 Peter 1:20-21). Through illumination (1 Corinthians 2:12) He enables men to understand truth (John 16:13). He exalts Christ. He convicts men of sin), of righteousness, and of judgment(john 16:8.  He indwells the Christian (1 Corinthians 3:16) to enable them to live a godly life and fulfill their created purpose (I Corinthians 2:12) He provides the Christian with power for living (Hebrews 9:14), understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance. He gives every believer spiritual gifts (I Corinthians 12:11). 

Inspiration of Scripture

We Believe — the Bible was written by men divinely inspired by God (2 Peter 1:20-21) and is profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16). It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living (Psalm 119:160).  It is infallible in all matters of faith, practice, and lifestyle (Psalm 119:105).   

Fallen State of Man

We believe that mankind was created in the image of God (Genesis 1:27) to enjoy fellowship with Him and fulfill His purposes on earth (Psalms 8:5-6).  By his free choice man sinned against God (Isaiah 53:6a) and brought sin into the human race.  Consequently all people are spiritually dead and subject to the certainty of both physical and spiritual death apart from faith in Jesus Christ. Only the grace of God can bring man into His holy fellowship and enable man to fulfill the creative purpose of God (Romans 6:23).
