Holy Bible is the Inspired Word of God

We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God and is eternal and unbroken. It cannot be added to nor taken away from. (Numbers 23:16-19) (John 1:1-14) (II Timothy 3:15-17) God exists in Three Persons – The Trinity We believe in one God, eternally existent in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4-5) (Matthew 28:19-20) (Mark 12:28–31) (I John 5:7)

Divinity of Christ

We believe in the divinity of our Lord, Christ Jesus. Jesus is God incarnate, and was manifest in human flesh. He was like us in all ways except for one, being free from sin. (Isaiah 9:6-7) (John 1:1-14) (John 5:22-23) (John 8:54-58) (John 10:30)

Virgin Birth of Christ

We believe that our Lord Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit born of the Virgin Mary. (Isaiah 7:14) (Matthew 1:18-23)

Christ Died for Our Sins

We believe in the -atoning death of Jesus, who died on the cross so that we might have life – and life ever after offering Himself up as the perfect sacrifice for sinful fallen man. (Romans 5:6-10) (I Thessalonians 5:9-10)

Bodily Resurrection and Ascension of Christ

We believe that Christ is the risen savior. Jesus rose from the dead, ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of the Father. (Acts 1:8-11) (Romans 8:31-35)

Water Baptism

We believe that all believers should receive water baptism, as a demonstration of our faith, and in obedience to the commandment of our Lord. This act represents a commitment by the believer, and should be accompanied by a renewal and sanctification via the Holy Spirit. Water baptism is an outward symbol of spiritual identification with His death, burial, and resurrection. (Matthew 28:18-20) (Mark 1:4-11)
