What we believe

WE BELIEVE in one triune God, revealed as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.   

Deuteronomy 6:4; II Corinthians 13:14; John 1:1

WE BELIEVE that our Lord Jesus Christ was begotten; truly God, truly Man. He was born of the Virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, died a vicarious and atoning death for the sins of the world, resurrected bodily for our justification, ascended into the heavens, and now reigns in glory until all things be put under His feet.   
I Timothy 3:16


WE BELIEVE in the absolute inspiration of the Holy Scriptures, given by the Holy Spirit without error, as He moved upon holy men of old. Furthermore, we believe that the church has no authority to establish doctrine or practice contrary to these same Scriptures, which were subsequently accepted as canon by the early Christian Church.   
II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:21


WE BELIEVE that man was made in the image of God and is the crown of creation. He is now, by reason of the fall, spiritually depraved and alienated from his Creator. Apart from God’s grace he has no ability to attain to his high calling.  
Psalm 8; Ephesians 2:8-9

WE BELIEVE that justification is by grace through faith in our Lord’s sacrifice on Calvary.  
Romans 3:21-24


WE BELIEVE that all of God’s people are to be buried with Christ in the waters of baptism, subsequent to conversion.  
Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:37-38


WE BELIEVE that the Holy Spirit indwells all believers, conforming them to the image of Jesus Christ.   
I Corinthians 12:13; Romans 8:9, 15-17

WE BELIEVE the identity of the Body of Christ on the earth is primarily perceived through the local church. While encouraging the voluntary association of local churches, and recognizing the need of consensus on matters of fundamental doctrine and conduct, we strongly confess the local church to be sovereign and autonomous.  
Revelation 2-3

WE BELIEVE in the priesthood of the believer. That is to say all people born of God have equal status before, and direct access to, their Lord.  
I Peter 2:5


WE BELIEVE that those who are called by the name of Christ should depart from iniquity. Understanding that salvation from the penalty of sin only begins the process of redemption, we acknowledge that one work of the Holy Spirit is to create in us the character of Christ.  
II Timothy 2:19

WE BELIEVE in the literal second coming of our Lord, the literal rule of Christ upon the earth, the resurrection of the regenerate to eternal life and the unregenerate to eternal damnation, and the ultimate victory of the eternal Kingdom of God. 
Acts 1:9-11; Daniel 12:2; Revelation 22:1-7
