Scripture is our authority. 

We are committed to this basic statement of faith:


GOD


There is but one eternal, all-powerful, all-knowing, and everywhere-present Triune God-Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

Who is the creator of all things.  

(Deuteronomy 6:4-5; 1 Timothy 2:5) 



JESUS CHRIST


He is God 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 Savior of men.  

(John 1:1,14; Titus 2:11-14)



  HOLY SPIRIT


He convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgement, regenerating all who repent of their sins and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. He sanctifies, empowers, teaches, guides and comforts the believers. 

(John 16:7,8, 12-15).   



BIBLE


The Bible is the divinely inspired Word of God and thus authoritative in all matters it addresses. 

(2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21)  



SALVATION


Salvation is the result of genuine repentance of sin and faith in the atoning 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)  



CHURCH


We believe in the invisible and universal Church as an organism. It is composed of believers in the Lord Jesus who have been vitally united by faith to Christ, its living Head and soverign Lord.

(Matthew 16:18; Hebrews 12:22-24)  



ORDINANCES


We believe the Christian Ordinances 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).
