The Holy Bible
We believe that the Bible is God’s Word. It is composed of all the books of the Old and New Testaments. It is the only infallible and authoritative word of God. It is without error and defect of any kind. It is the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and opinions should be tried.
We believe there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He alone is worthy of all honor, worship, and praise. He is the Creator, Redeemer, and Ruler of Heaven and Earth. He is expressly glorious in holiness and love.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ. We believe that He was born of a virgin and lived a sinless life. He performs miracles and atoned us through his death, shed blood, and resurrection. We believe that he ascended to heaven and lives to make intercession for us at the right hand of the Father. We believe in His personal and visible return in power and glory.
Man & Sin
We believe that man was created in the image of God and was intended to have fellowship with God. However, since Adam, all men are sinners by nature and by choice, and are under the just condemnation of the Holy and Righteous God and is in need of salvation.
We believe that salvation is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ alone, Who is the only and all-sufficient Savior and the only Mediator between God and man; and that the Gospel of salvation should be shared with every person in the world.
We believe that water baptism and the Lord’s Supper are to be observed until the time of Christ’s return. They are not a means of salvation. Baptism in water is by immersion and a direct commandment of our Lord for believers only. Water baptism is a symbol of the Christian’s identification with Christ in death, burial, and resurrection.
We believe that the church is God’s primary instrument through which He is fulfilling His redemptive purposes in the earth. To equip the saints for the work of ministry, God has given apostolic, prophetic, evangelistic, pastoral, and teaching gifts to the church. We also affirm the priesthood of all believers and the importance of every Christian being joined with and actively involved in a local community of the saints. God has called the church to preach the gospel to all nations, and especially to remember the poor and to minister to their needs through sacrificial giving and practical service.
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
