We Believe

  • The Bible to be the inspired, the infallible, authoritative Word of God.
  • There is one God, eternally existent in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • In the deity of our Lord Jesus 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 the Father, in His personal return in power and glory.

  • That for the salvation of lost and sinful men, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. This event we hold to be an experience, rather than a doctrinal supposition.
  • In the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
  • In the bodily resurrection of the just and unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost.
  • In the spiritual unity of the believers in Christ and together they form one body, the Church.
  • In the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
