The Scriptures

We believe the Bible is the divlnely inspired Word of God and thus authoritative in all matters in addresses. Scripture is our authority. We are fully committed to the inerrancy of Scripture and the authority of the Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21)


We believe there is but one eternal, all-powerful, all-knowing and everywhere-present Triune God (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) who is the creator and sustainer of all things. (Deuteronomy 6:4-5; 1 Timothy 2:5)

Jesus christ

We believe that Jesus is incarnate, yet human. He lived a sinless life, died to make atonement for the sins of all mankind, was bodily resurrected and is now mediator at the right hand of the Father. He is assuredly coming in power and glory for His believing followers, and is the only Savor of men. (John 1:1, 14; Titus 2:11-14)

holy spirit

We believe the Holy Spirit convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, regenerating all who repent of their sins and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. He sanctifies, empowers, teaches, guides and comforts Christ followers. (John 16:7, 8, 12-15)


Salvation is the result of genuine repentance of sin and faith in the antoning work of Christ. It brings forgiveness to the penitent, makes him a partaker of the divine nature and gives peace with God. We call this "new birth." (Titus 3:5; 1 Peter 1:3-5)


We believe in the invisible and universal Church as an organism. It is composed of all believers in the Lord Jesus who have been vitally united by faith to Christ, ts living Head and sovereign Lord. (Matthew 16:18, Hebrews 12:22-24)


We believe the Christian ordinaces are two: Baptism and the Lord's Supper. We believe they are outward rites appointed by Christ to be administered in each church, not as a means of salvation, but as a visible sign and seal of its reality. (Acts 8:36; 1 Corinthians 11:24-34)
