We believe that God reveals Himself through creating, preserving, and governing all things. He makes Himself more fully known through the Scriptures which, in their original form, are the only inerrant and infallible Word of God, our ultimate, final, and authoritative rule for faith and practice.
We believe that there is but one infinite, eternal, self-existent, self-sufficient, omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient, perfect, and good God. In the unity of the Godhead, there are three persons, of one substance, power, and eternity: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. The Father is neither begotten nor proceeding; the Son is eternally begotten of the Father; and the Holy Spirit is eternally proceeding from the Father and the Son.
We believe that man’s purpose is to bring glory to God by enjoying Him for eternity.
We believe man’s purpose was distorted when Adam sinned in disobedience toward God, thereby breaking fellowship with Him. Through the Fall of Adam, sin extended to all mankind. We are all born sinners, spiritually dead, relationally and eternally separated from God.
We believe that Jesus Christ, who was fully God and fully man, was born of a virgin and came to earth to give His life on the cross as the perfect, complete, and sole propitiation for our sins.
We believe that the Father raised Jesus from the dead on the third day, after He had provided a full redemption for all those who, by God’s grace alone through faith alone, turn from their sins and trust and have faith in Jesus Christ.
We believe God will regenerate all for whom Christ died through the invincible power of the Holy Spirit. Christ will one day return to judge the world and deliver His faithful. A persevering, personal faith in Christ, which is the gift of God, is the only way to eternal salvation for mankind.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. While faith and salvation do not proceed from works or godliness, we believe that works always proceed from authentic faith in conformity to God’s Word and for His glory.
We believe that all people are created in the image of God and that life is sacred from the time of conception.
We believe that God created us immutably male and female as a reflection of His image and that He defined marriage as the life-long covenant between one man and one woman. All forms of sexual activity outside of marriage are sinful, harmful, and outside the bounds of God’s established creation norms.
We believe that the Father has given Christ all authority in heaven and earth; that He is Sovereign Lord of all creation and every area of life, not just “religious” or “spiritual” life; that Christians are commanded to love Him with all their minds as well as their hearts and souls; that Christians love Him with their minds by refusing to conform to unbiblical thinking patterns of the world and by renewing their minds and transforming their thinking patterns to take every thought captive to Christ.
