We believe the Bible to be the inspired and only infallible, authoritative Word of the Living God. The Bible is the final authority on all matters of life, faith and practice. The maxim of interpretation is "Scripture interprets Scripture."
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three Persons (Tri-une): Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of Christ, in His Virgin Birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of God, and in His personal return in power and glory.
We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful humanity, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is essential, and that repentance from sin and acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior is the only way to come into a relationship with God.
We believe that salvation is an act of God's saving grace by the work of the Holy Spirit in regenerating and converting the hearts of men by His free gift of saving faith.
We believe in the personal return of Jesus Christ, to set up His literal earthly Kingdom. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost: they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation -- a literal Hell.
We believe in the present ministry and manifestation of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life; we further believe His power and gifts are available to believers today, through the Baptism of the Holy Spirit subsequent to salvation, in order that they do the works that Jesus commanded all of His followers to do.
We believe it is important to uphold the scriptural practices of the early church. Therefore, we hold to the practice of water baptism and the regular taking of Communion. We do not believe that either of these practices is essential for salvation, but that they serve as a demonstration of our living faith in Christ.
We believe that there is but one Head of the church, the Lord Jesus Christ. It is the responsibility of the church and its institutions to maintain His Lordship over their activities, and not to submit that right to any individual, corporate body, governmental agency or head of state.
We believe that every area of life is to be subject to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. We adhere to a world and life view which seeks to make the Lord Jesus Christ preeminent in all things.
We further express that God the Father is our Creator and our Sustainer in life; that Jesus Christ the Holy & Only Begotten Son of God is our Redeemer, and we submit to His Lordship; that the Holy Spirit is One who reveals and guides us personally and professionally in our ministries & lives; and that the Holy Bible is the infallible authority in matters of faith and conduct.
These biblical standards guide us as we apply the life-giving message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to our ministry. The application of these standards of faith and conduct indicates that we demonstrate a respect for and value of every person as a being created in the image of God and deserving of His love.
