What We Believe
We believe the Bible to be God's Holy Word in its entirety, and inspired in every part, by the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme and final authority for faith and life. (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21).
We believe that man was created in the image of God, holy and innocent, and through Adam's free will he sinned and as a result, brought death upon all humanity. Those who are not saved from sin are eternally separated from God. (John 3:18).
Jesus Christ
We believe that Jesus Christ is God, born of a virgin; that He gave His life on the cross where He, who knew no sin, was made sin for us; that He was buried and arose again from the dead, afterward He ascended into heaven, from whence He will come again.
 (John 5:39; 2 Corinthians 5:21; 1 Corinthians 15:4).
We believe that we are saved by grace through faith, apart from works; that the sinner who repents and personally accepts the finished work of Christ, on the cross becomes a child of God, is made a new creature, and is indwelt by the Holy Spirit. (Ephesians 2:8, 9; John 1:12; 2 Corinthians 5:17; John 14:7).
We believe that Jesus Christ is coming again for His church, to establish His kingdom, to judge the wicked and the lost, and to dwell with the saints forever and ever. (John 14:3; Revelation 20:6, 14, 15; 22:1-5).
