The Bible, both Old and New Testaments, is God's word to all. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. The Scriptures are inspired by God and are infallible and inerrant in the original manuscripts. They are the unique, full and final authority on all matters of faith and practice, and there are no other writings similarly inspired by God. (Isaiah 40:8; II Peter 1:21; II Timothy 3:16-17).
We believe that God is eternally existent, co-equal in three persons, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:28; Matthew 28:18; Luke 3:22; John 1:1).
We believe in Jesus Christ, the only begotten son of God, in His virgin birth and sinless life; that He is 100% God and 100% man; that He died as a redeeming substitute for our sins, was buried and bodily resurrected, and ascended to the right hand of the Father; and, in His personal return in power and glory. (Isaiah 7:14, 53:5; Matthew 1:23; John 1:14; Acts 2:29-36; Galatians 3:13; Hebrews 4:15; Philippians 2:6-11; I Thessalonians 4:16; I Timothy 2:5).
THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe in the Holy Spirit as the third person of the Trinity, whose present ministry is convicting us of our sins; and, who indwells the Christian; comforting, teaching and empowering the Christian to lead a godly life. (Ezekiel 36:27; Matthew 3:11; John 14: 16-17, 16:8; Acts 1:8).
We believe that man was created in the image of God to be in fellowship with God and to reconcile the earth to God. We believe man was tempted by Satan, fell under the influence of sin, became disobedient to God by choice and was helpless to restore himself, thus forsaking his divine mission in life. Man is the object of God's love in Jesus Christ, who came so that man could resume his original divine mission in life. (Genesis 1:26-28; John 3:15-17; Romans 3:23, 5:12-21; I Corinthians 3:5-10, 16:8; Acts 1:8).
Salvation is a gift from God to all people. Men and women can never make up for their sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God's offer of forgiveness can a person be saved from sin's penalty. (Ephesians 2:8-9; John 3:16; Romans 10:9-10, 13).
People are created to exist forever. Every person will either exist eternally separated from God by sin or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is hell. To be eternally in union with Him is heaven. Heaven and hell are places of eternal existence. (Matthew 6:20-21; Revelation 20:11-15, 21:8).
We believe that Satan rebelled against God; became the author of sin; is at war with God for control of the earth; is the enemy of God and man and that he and his followers shall be eternally punished in the Lake of Fire. (Job 1:6; Matthew 4:1-11; Luke 22:31; Ephesians 6:11-12; Revelation 20:10).
