We believe that the Bible, including the 39 books of the Old Testament and the 27 books of the New Testament, is the inspired, inerrant and infallible Word of God.
We believe there is one living and true God: infinite, eternal, almighty and perfect in holiness, truth and love. In the unity of the Godhead, there are three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, who are co-existent, co-equal and co-eternal.
We believe God the Father is the Creator of heaven and earth. His super-abounding grace gave His Son, Jesus Christ, for mankind’s redemption.
We believe that in the fullness of time Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, the eternal Word made flesh, was supernaturally conceived by the Holy Spirit and was born of the virgin Mary. He is the only Savior for the sins of the world, who shed His blood and died a vicarious death on Calvary’s cross. Having provided redemption for sin, the third day He rose bodily from the grave, victorious over death and the powers of darkness.
The Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third Person of the Trinity, equal in all aspects with the Father and the Son.
We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God. Man, tempted by Satan, rebelled against God and is now estranged from his maker.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Gospel. The Gospel is the good news revealed in the birth, life, death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ. Christ’s crucifixion is the heart of the Gospel, His resurrection is the power of the Gospel, and His ascension is the glory of the Gospel.
