Core Beliefs

The Bible  (2 Timothy 3:15)
We believe the Holy Scriptures were written by men inspired by God, who were under the influence of the Holy Spirit of God.  The Bible is the Word of God, the record of God's true revelation of Himself to man.  We believe that His Word is true and eternal and shall never pass away.  The Bible is the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds and religious opinions should be judged.

God the Trinity  (Deut. 6:4-6; John 14:6; John 15:26)
God is revealed to us as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, each as a distinct Person but without division of nature or being.  There is one and only one true and living God, a Spiritual infinite Being, Creator and Redeemer.  He is the Creator, Ruler, and Sustainer of our universe; omnipotent, and omnipresent.   He is God the Father, all powerful, loving, and all wise God.

God the Son (John 1:1, 14)
Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God.  His coming , foretold by prophets of old, was God's climactic unfolding and completion of His plan of redemption for man.  Jesus, Son of man and Son of God, was born of the Virgin Mary and was God incarnate in human flesh.  He took upon Himself the demands of human nature, identifying Himself with mankind, being tempted with all the temptations common to man yet without sin.  He honored the Father by obedience of His death on the cross, by which He made provisions for the redemption of man from their sins.  He was raised from the dead, ascended to the Father and sat down on the right hand of God, as the one Mediator between God and man.

God the Holy Spirit (John 16:7)
The Holy Spirit, the third person of the Trinity is the Holy Spirit of God.  He enlightens and leads men to understanding the truths of God.  He convicts of sin and righteousness and of judgement.  He bestows spiritual strength, which enables believers to worship and to serve God.  His Presence in the Christian is that which seals the believer unto the day of final redemption. 

Salvation (Ephesians 2:8; Romans 10:9-10)
Salvation involves redemption of the whole man and is by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.  It is offered freely as a gift of God to all who accept Jesus as Lord and Savior.  Jesus by His sacrificial death on the cross, by the shedding of His own blood, has obtained eternal redemption for the believer.  In a fuller sense, salvation includes: repentance, justification, regeneration, and sanctification.  Repentance and faith are inseparable experiences.  Repentance is a genuine turning from sin toward God.  Faith is the acceptance of Jesus Christ and the commitment of life to Him as Lord and Savior.
