We believe in one God, Creator of all things, holy, infinitely perfect, and eternally existing in a loving unity of three equally divine Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Gen 1:1; Matt 5:48; Matt 3:16-17; Eph 4:1-6; Rom 11:36)


We believe the Bible is the infallible Word of God, without error in the original writings. It is the complete revelation of God’s will for salvation and the ultimate authority by which every realm of human knowledge and endeavor should be judged. It is to be believed in everything it teaches, obeyed in all it requires, and trusted in everything it promises. (2 Tim 3:16; 2 Pet 1:19-21; John 10:35; Deut 10:12-13)


We believe every person, male and female, is created by God in God’s image. Therefore, from conception to death, each person has intrinsic dignity and value and should be treated as such. We believe that God created Adam and Eve in His image; they sinned, and as a result, in union with Adam, all human beings are sinners by nature and by choice, alienated from God and under His wrath. (Gen 1:27; Gen 2:7; Gen 3:6-8,13; Rom 5:12,19; Eph 2:2-3)


We believe that Jesus Christ is God incarnate, fully God and fully man, one person in two natures. Jesus was conceived through the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He lived a sinless life, was crucified under Pontius Pilate, arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, and now sits at the right hand of God the Father. (John 1:14; Luke 1:27,31,35; Heb 4:15; Matt 27:26-50; 1 Cor 15:4; Acts 1:2-3; Rom 8:33-34; Heb 8:1-2)


We believe that because every human is sinful and lost, every human needs salvation. Salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone in our Lord Jesus Christ alone. We believe that Jesus Christ, as our representative and substitute, shed His blood on the cross as the perfect, all-sufficient sacrifice for our sins. His atoning death and victorious resurrection constitute the only ground for our salvation. There is no salvation apart from personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord. (John 19:30; 1 Tim 2:5-6; Heb 9:12; Eph 1:7; Acts 4:12; Eph 2:8-9)


We believe that the Holy Spirit, in all that He does, glorifies the Lord Jesus Christ. He convicts the world of its guilt. He regenerates sinners, and in Him, they are baptized into union with Christ and adopted as heirs in the family of God. He also indwells, illuminates, guides, equips, and empowers believers for Christ-like living and service. (John 15:26; 1 John 5:20; 1 Cor 2:12-16; John 14:16-20; 1 Cor 12:13; Rom 8:9; Gal 5:16-18, 22-23)


We believe that the church comprises all who have been justified by God's grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone. The Holy Spirit unites them into the body of Christ, of which Christ is the head. The one true church is manifest in local churches, whose membership should be composed only of believers. (Eph 5:23; 1 Cor 1:2; 1 Cor 12:13; Matt 28:19-20)


We believe God commands us to be holy in our private and public lives. We are to love God supremely and love others sacrificially. This shows up in how we care for one another, demonstrate compassion toward the poor, and work for justice on behalf of the oppressed. With God’s word, the Spirit’s power, and fervent prayer in Christ’s name, we are to combat the spiritual forces of evil in our lives and in our unrighteous world. In obedience to Christ’s commission, we are to make disciples among all people, always bearing witness to the gospel in word and deed, transforming us in the totality of our personal and social responsibilities. (Eze 36:27; Phil 2:13; John 13:34; Micah 6:8; 1 John 5:2-3; Matt 28:19-20)


We believe in the personal, bodily, and glorious return of our Lord Jesus Christ. The coming of Christ, at a time known only to God, demands constant expectancy and, as our blessed hope, motivates us to godly living, sacrificial service, and a desire to see the gospel proclaimed to all nations. (Acts 1:11; Acts 3:21; Matt 24:30; Matt 24:42-44)


We believe God commands everyone everywhere to believe the gospel by turning to Him in repentance and trusting in the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe that God will raise the dead bodily and judge the world, assigning the unbeliever to condemnation and eternal separation in hell and the believer to eternal blessedness and joy with the Lord in the new heaven and the new earth. (Mark 1:15; Acts 2:37-41; Acts 17:31; Matt 25:41-43; Luke 16:26; Matt 25:34,46; Eph 5:27; Ps 16:11)
