Doctrinal Statement
Scripture

We believe the Bible, both old and New Testaments, to be the divinely inspired, infalliible, inerrant, Word of the living God, and that it is the sole authority in matters of faith and practice (2 Tim. 3:16). 

God

There is one and only living and true God. He is an intelligent, spiritual, and personal Being, the Creator, Redeemer, Preserver, and Ruler of the universe. God is infinite in holiness and all other perfections. God is all-powerful and all knowing; and his perfect knowledge extends to all things, past, present, and future.

Trinity

We believe in one triune God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (1 Peter 1:2). We believe that they are co-equal in power and glory, identical in their essential matters, attributes and perfections, and they are co-eternal (Gen 1:2; Acts 5:34).

Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ, being the enterality Son of God, became man (Heb. 2:16), and that He continues to be the God-man in two distinct natures (John 1:14). We believe that Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, thus being truly God and truly man. 

Salvation 

Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and savior, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer. In its broadest sense salvation includes regeneration, justification, sanctification, and glorification. There is no salvation apart from personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord. We believe Jesus died upon the cross, a substitution death, therby making atonement for the sins of the world (john 1:29).
