The Bible
We believe in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as verbally inspired of God, inerrant in the original writings, and of supreme and final authority in all matters of life and faith.  2 Timothy 3:16-17

The Trinity
We believe in one God eternally existing in three equal persons:  Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  Deut. 33:27, John 1:1, Heb. 9:14

The Person and Work of Jesus Christ
We believe that God the Son became incarnate in the person of Jesus Christ, who was begotten by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, and is true God and true man.  Luke 1:35, I Timothy 2:5  We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sin according to the Scriptures as a substitute sacrifice, and that all that believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood.  I Cor. 15:3, Rom. 3:24
We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into Heaven, and in His present life there for us as High Priest, Intercessor, and Advocate.  Acts 1:9-10, 2:32, Heb. 4:14, John 2:1-2

The Second Coming of Christ
We believe in the rapture of the saved to meet Christ in the air, and in the personal, visible, imminent, and glorious return of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.  Acts 1:11, I Thess. 4:13-18, Rev. 19:11-16

The Way of Salvation
We believe that whosoever, by faith and apart from works of any kind, receives the Lord Jesus Christ as their Saviour is “born from above” and thereby becomes a child of God, “created in Christ Jesus unto good works.”  Eph. 2:8-10
