WE​ BELIEVE

THE HOLY SCRIPTURES

We believe in the verbal, plenary inspiration of the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments. (The words recorded by the writers were God-breathed, extending to every part of the Scriptures.) The Scriptures are inerrant, infallible, and God-breathed, and therefore are the final authority for faith and life. The sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments are the complete and divine revelation of God to man. We believe the Scriptures to be divinely preserved. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 1 Peter 1:23–25; 2 Peter 1:19-21; Psalm 12:6)

THE GODHEAD

We believe in one Triune God, eternally existing in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – co-eternal in being, one in essence, power, and glory, and each possessing all the attributes and perfections of deity. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14; John 14:10, 26; 1 John 5:7)

THE PERSON AND WORK OF CHRIST

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man without ceasing to be God, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful men. (Isaiah 7:14; 9:6; Luke 1:35; John 1:1-2, 14; 2 Corinthians 5:19-21; Galatians 4:4- 5; Philippians 2:5-8)

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption through his sacrificial, substitutionary suffering and death on the cross, and that our justification is made sure by His literal, bodily resurrection from the dead. (Acts 2:18-36; Romans 4:23–25; 1 Peter 2:24; Ephesians 1:7; 1 Peter 1:3)

We believe that the risen Lord Jesus Christ ascended to Heaven, and is now exalted at the right hand of God, where, as our High Priest, He fulfills the ministry of Representative, Intercessor, and Advocate. (Acts 1:9-11; Hebrews 9:24; 7:25; Romans 8:34; 1 John 2:1)

SALVATION

We believe that salvation is the gift of God brought to man by grace and is received not by works but by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose precious blood was shed on Calvary for our redemption and the forgiveness of sins. (John 1:12; Ephesians 1:7; 2:8-10; 1 Peter 1:18-19; 1 John 2:2)

THE CHURCH

We believe that the Church represents the body and espoused bride of Christ in its connection and union with him, and is solely comprised of born-again persons. (1 Corinthians 12:12-14; Acts 2:41–42, 47; 2 Corinthians 6:14)

We believe that the establishment and continuance of local churches is clearly taught and defined in the New Testament Scriptures. (Acts 14:27; 20:17; 28-32; Titus 1:5-11)

We believe in the autonomy of the local church free of any external authority or control apart from Christ as the Head of the Church. (Acts 13:1-4; 15:19-31; 20:28; Romans 16:1, 4; 1 Corinthians 5:12)

We believe that there are two Church offices, those of pastor and deacon. The office of pastor is also referred to in the New Testament variously as elder, bishop, or overseer. (Acts 14:23; 20:17, 28; Ephesians 4:11; Philippians 1:1; Titus 1:5, 7)
