We accept the Scriptures as our authority in matters of faith and practice and adopt the following Confession of Faith as our interpretation of Bible Doctrine:
We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament are verbally inspired by God and inerrant and infallible in the original writings, and that they are of supreme and final authority.
We believe in one God eternally existing in one essence, yet three co- equal persons, the Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by God, conceived by the Holy Spirit, and born to the virgin Mary.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Trinity, who convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment. He applies the work of Christ to believers and distributes spiritual gifts to every believer according to His sovereign good pleasure for the purpose of building up the body of Christ.
We believe that mankind was created in the image of God, sinned, and thereby incurred not only physical death, but spiritual death, which is separation from God, and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who trust in Him are justified on the basis of His shed blood.
We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, His ascension into Heaven, and His present life there as High Priest and Advocate for us.
We believe in the blessed hope, which is the personal and visible imminent return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
We believe that all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again by the Holy Spirit, and thereby become children of God and heirs of eternal life.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of both the just and the unjust — the unjust to judgment and eternal conscious punishment in hell, as the Lord himself taught, and the just to eternal blessedness in the presence of Him who sits on the throne and of the Lamb, in the new heaven and the new earth, the home of the righteous.
We believe that Satan is a person, the author of sin and the cause of the Fall of Man. He is the open and declared enemy of God and man and shall be eternally punished in the Lake of Fire.
We believe in the Church, the Body of Christ, whose mission it is to preach the Scriptures to all the world. All of the Church’s endeavors are to be guided by multiple leadership and supported by the wise stewardship of God’s people through service, tithes and offerings.
We believe that the ordinances of the Church, given by our Lord, are Baptism and the Lord’s Table (Communion).
We believe in the Scriptural and historical view of Christian marriage: namely that marriage is a one-flesh covenant union between two sexually different persons, created in the image of God to be male and female and who are from two different families.
We believe that all human life is sacred because it is created by God and in His image. Human life is of inestimable value in all its dimensions, without exception, including pre-born babies, the aged, the physically or mentally challenged, and every other stage or condition of life from conception through natural death. Therefore, the gift of life should be cherished and not taken In terms of the terminally ill, the ability to extend human life artificially does not create a moral imperative to extend it indefinitely.
We believe that the foregoing are Bible doctrines; therefore, we stand firm upon this Confession of Faith.
