What We Believe

BIBLE
We believe the Bible to be the complete Word of God. That the 66 books of the Old and New Testament were inspired by the Spirit of God as originally written
That the Bible is the final authority in all matters of faith and conduct · 2 Timothy 3:16


GOD
We believe in one God, Creator of all, holy, sovereign, eternal, existing in three equal Persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit

JESUS CHRIST
We believe in the absolute and essential deity of our Lord Jesus Christ
In His eternal existence, with the Father in pre-incarnate glory
In His work of creation, in His virgin birth, sinless life, substitutionary death and bodily resurrection
In His triumphant ascension, mediatorial ministry and personal return


THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe in the absolute and essential deity, and in the personality of the Holy Spirit
Who convicts of sin, of righteousness and of judgment
Who regenerates, indwells, seals, sanctifies, illuminates and comforts those who believe in Jesus Christ
Who baptizes believers at conversion into the Body of Christ and bestows upon them His gifts sovereignly as He wills and fills those yielded to Him


MANKIND
We believe that Adam was divinely created in the image of God. That by the sin of disobedience he fell from that state. That all his posterity inherited spiritual depravity and defilement. That all men therefore are guilty before God and condemned to physical and spiritual death.

SALVATION
We believe that salvation is by the sovereign grace of God. Jesus Christ voluntarily suffered a propitiatory death. That justification is by faith alone in the all-sufficient sacrifice and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. That those whom God has effectually called shall be divinely preserved and ultimately perfected in the image of the Lord.

REPENT AND BAPTISM
We teach one must repent of their sins, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ (Acts 2:38)
