What We Believe
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, only infallible, authoritative Word of God. The Bible is God's written revelation to humanity. It is verbally inspired in every word and without error in the original documents.
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, in his virgin birth, in his sinless life, in his miracles, in his vicarious and atoning death through his shed blood, in his bodily resurrection, in his ascension to the right hand of the Father and his future personal return in power and glory.
We believe that all humanity is sinful and therefore guilty before God. The salvation of sinners is instantaneous and accomplished solely by the power of the Holy Spirit through the Holy Scriptures (i.e. the gospel) when the repentant sinner - enabled by the Holy Spirit - responds in faith. This salvation is wholly by God's grace on the basis of Jesus Christ's redeeming work, the merit of His shed blood and not on human merit or works. All the redeemed are kept by God's power and thus are secure in Christ forever.
We believe in the Spirit-filled life. The believer, being indwelt by the Holy Spirit at the moment of salvation, is empowered to witness to an unbelieving world and gifted to serve one another to the glory of God.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of both the saved and the unsaved; those that are saved to the resurrection of life and those that are lost to the resurrection of God’s eternal judgement.
We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. All who place their faith in Jesus Christ are immediately placed by the Holy Spirit into one united spiritual Body, the Church of which Christ is the Head. The purpose of the Church is to glorify God by building up its members in the faith, by instruction of the Word, by fellowship, by keeping the ordinances, and by advancing and communicating the gospel to the whole world. The Church was initiated on the Day of Pentecost and will be completed at the coming of Christ for His own when he returns.
