Our Beliefs

What We Believe About the Bible
          We believe the Bible was supernaturally verbally inspired and preserved in all parts infallible and authoritative.  We fully accept the writings of the Old and New Testament as the inerrant Word of God.  The Bible is the complete and final revelation of God to man.  The Bible is sufficient as our only infallible and authoritative rule of faith and practice.
Psalm 119:160; Proverbs 30:5,6; 2 Timothy 3:16,17; 2 Peter 1:19-21; John 17:17; Revelation 22:19 

What We Believe About God
          We believe in the One True Living God as revealed in the Bible.  We believe in the Holy Trinity.  God is revealed to us in the Bible as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, three distinct persons but without division of nature, essence or being, and each having a distinct ministry in God's relation to His creation and people.
Genesis 1:1,26; Exodus 15:11; Matthew 28:19; John 10:30; 1 John 5:7

What We Believe About Jesus Christ
          We believe the Lord Jesus Christ is the second Person of the Triune God, the eternal Word and Only Begotten Son; that without any change in His divine Person, He became man by miracle of the Virgin Birth, thus to continue forever as both true God and true Man, one Person with two natures; that as Man He was tempted in all points as we are, yet without sin; that as the perfect Lamb of God He gave Himself in death upon the cross, bearing there the sin of the world, and suffering its full penalty of divine wrath in our stead; that He arose from the grave in a glorified body; that as our great High Priest He ascended into Heaven, there to appear before the face of God as our Advocate and Intercessor.
John 1:1,14; 3:16; Matthew 1:18-25; Galatians 4:4,5; Philippians 2:6-10; 1 Corinthians 15:3-7; Hebrews 4:14-16; 1 John 2:1,2.

What We Believe About the Holy Spirit
          We believe the Holy Spirit is the third Person of the Trinity, and the divine Agent in nature, revelation and redemption; that He convicts the world concerning sin, righteousness and judgment; that He regenerates, indwells, baptizes, seals and anoints all who become children of God through Christ; that He futher empowers, guides, teaches, sanctifies and fills believers who daily surrender to Him.
John 3:4; 14:16,17; Romans 8:9,26,27; Ephesians 1:13,14; Hebrews 9:14

What We Believe About Man
          We believe in the literal Genesis account of creation.  We believe man was a direct creation in God's image and not by an evolutionary process.  All men are by nature and choice sinful and lost: that by personal disobedience to the revealed will of God, man became a sinful creature, the father of a fallen race which is universally sinful in both nature and practice, thus in need of salvation.
Genesis 1:26,27; 3:6; Romans 3:23; 5:12,19; Galatians 3:11
