Beliefs

    • We believe in the divine inspiration, truthfulness and authority of the Bible as the only written Word of God, without error in all that it affirms, and the only infallible rule of faith and practice. (2 Timothy 3:16,17; 2 Peter 1:21 NIV)
    • We believe that there is one God eternally existent in three persons--Father, Son and Holy Spirit; who are infinite in glory, wisdom, holiness, justice, power and love. (1 Corinthians 8:4-6, John 1:1, 14; 10:30-33 NIV)
    • We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father where He reigns as King, and in His personal return to earth in power and glory. (Hebrews 1:1-3, 1 Corinthians 15:3-6 NIV)
    • We believe that regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for the salvation of lost and sinful man, and that this salvation is received through repentance and faith in Jesus Christ as Messiah, Savior and Lord, and not as the result of good works. (Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5 NIV)
    • We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live an obedient godly life, and to perform service pleasing to the Lord. (Romans 8:9-10; John 16:7; John 14:26; John 16:13-15; Romans 8:14 NIV)
    • We believe in private and public prayer as a relational privilege of grace and as an opportunity and responsibility to participate with God in the accomplishing of His eternal purposes in Christ. Because we desire love and unity among all believers, we request that all prayer in our public meetings be offered in a known language. (Hebrews 4:16, Colossians 4:2, 1 Corinthians 13:13 NIV)
    • We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost: the saved unto the resurrection of eternal life, and the lost unto the resurrection of eternal damnation. (2 Thessalonians 1:6-10 NIV)
    • We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in Christ and that the Church, the Body of Christ, is God's institution. (Ephesians 4:3-6, John 17:20-23 NIV)
