Core Beliefs

We believe that the Bible is divinely inspired, inerrant and is the absolute authority in matters of Christian faith and life.  II Timothy 3:16,17; II Peter 1:21

We believe in one God, eternally existing in three perfect and important Persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.  Deuteronomy 6:4; Acts 5:3,4; John 1:1-3, 8:58, 10:30; Colossians 1:13-19, 2:9; II Corinthians 1:3,4; 13:14

We believe that Jesus Christ is the divine and eternal Son of God. He was born of a virgin, and is both true God and true man. He died for our sins, was literally resurrected and will come again as the King of Kings.  Isaiah 9:6; Matthew 1:21-25; Mark 13:24-26; I Corinthians 15:1-4; Philippians 1:9-11; Hebrews 1:1-9; I John 5:20

We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third Person of the Trinity who regenerates, indwells, baptizes and seals all believers in Christ.  Acts 5:3-4; Matthew 28:19; John 3:3-7, 14:26, 16:7-11; Romans 8:9-16; I Corinthians 2:12, 6:19; 12:12-13; Titus 3:5; Ephesians 1:13, 4:30; 5:18; Galatians 5:22-24

We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but in Adam, all mankind fell into sin with the result of all men being born into sin and separated from the life of God.  Genesis 1:27, 9:6; Romans 3:23, 5:12, 8:6,7; Ephesians 2:1-3

We believe that salvation is by the grace of God through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. He died as a substitutionary sacrifice for our sins and rose again. All who believe in him are justified on the basis of his shed blood and receive the gift of eternal life.  Acts 14:12; 16:30,31; I Corinthians 15:1-4; Ephesians 1:8,9; 2:8,9; Hebrews 13:5; Romans 5:1; John 1:12, 3:16, 14:1-3, 15:9-11

We believe that sanctification applies to every believer as he trusts Christ to live his life in and through the believer. Galatians 2:20; John 14:6; Acts 17:26; Colossians 1:27
