The Scriptures are the eternal Word of God preserved for God’s people today (Mt. 5:18; Jn.10:35; 2 Tim. 2:9). We believe the Bible is the sole and final authority for faith and practice. (2Tim. 3:15-17; Eph. 6:17; 1 Jn. 4:1). It is sufficient for every spiritual need (Ps. 119:1-12; Jam.1:21; 1 Pet. 1:23).
Creation & Fall of Man
God the Father
We believe and teach that the Father, the first person of the Trinity, orders and administrates all things according to his purpose (Ps. 115:1-3; Rev. 4:11). The Father is the ruler of the universe (Deut. 10:14). He is sovereign in creation, history and redemption. The Father decrees that all things come to pass for his glory (Isa. 6:1-3; Eph. 1:11; Rom. 11:33-36).
God the Son
We believe and teach that the Lord Jesus Christ, the second person of the Trinity, is the eternal Son of God. At his incarnation Jesus was miraculously conceived by the Holy Spirit in the womb of a virgin, becoming the God-man, both fully God and fully human (Isa. 7:14; Mt. 1:18-25; Lk. 1:26-28; Jn. 1:1-2; Rom. 1:2-4). We believe and teach that Jesus Christ lived a sinless life, died a substitutionary death and resurrected bodily from death. His death is sufficient for the purchase of redemption, and his resurrection guarantees the offer of eternal life (1 Cor.15:1-7; Lk. 24:1-6; 1 Pet. 2:21-24). We believe and teach that Jesus Christ is presently seated at the right hand of the Father. He is the Head of the church (Eph.1:20-22). He will reign forever over all things as King of kings and Lord of lords (Rev. 19:14-16). Jesus Christ will soon return to rapture his church, and later return at his Second Coming to establish the Millennial Kingdom (Jn. 14:1-4; 1 Thes. 4:14-17; 1 Cor. 15:51-52;Rev. 19:11-21).
God the Holy Spirit
We believe and teach that the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Trinity, convicts the world of sin, righteousness and judgment (Jn. 16:8). The Holy Spirit regenerates those who believe in Jesus Christ baptizing them into the Body of Christ and indwelling them permanently. He ministers to each believer by sanctifying, empowering and gifting them for the glory of God (2 Cor. 3:18; Gal.5:16-25; Acts 1:8; 1 Cor. 12:4-7; 1 Cor. 6:19-20; Eph. 1:13-14).
