We Believe

  • The Bible to be the inspired, 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, arid in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
  • All men are lost, and that regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for salvation.
  • In the complete and eternal salvation of the true believer.
  • In the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
  • In the bodily resurrection and eternal conscious existence of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto eternal life, and the lost unto everlasting punishment.
  • In the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
