We believe that the Bible is God’s Word, breathed out by the Holy Spirit. It is accurate, authoritative, and applicable to our everyday lives.
We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
Man and separation
We believe that man was created by God perfect and sinless, but the first couple, Adam and Eve, rebelled against God and brought sin and death into the world. Man is now separated from holy God and can do nothing to repair this situation.
salvation - the gospel
We believe that God the Father sent His Son Jesus into the world, not to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. Jesus lived a sinless life, died, was buried, and rose again on the third day. He later ascended into heaven where He is now seated at the right hand of the Father. We believe that it is only by grace through faith in Jesus Christ that man can be reconciled to God.
We believe that Jesus is the Head of all things, including the church. We believe that Jesus will build His church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it. We believe the church consists of all those who have received salvation, and the primary role of the church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ here on the earth.
The holy SPirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells all who have received salvation and that Jesus left Him to the church in order to teach us and comfort us. We believe He convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment.
