Essential Beliefs

The Bible
We believe that the Bible is verbally inspired in every word by the Holy Spirit, inerrant in the original documents, and is the infallible and authoritative Word of God.

We believe that there is one living and true God, perfect in all his attributes, who exists eternally in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ
We believe in the full deity and humanity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His substitutionary death and atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal bodily return in power and glory.

We believe that all men are sinful, separated from God, and unable to save himself.  Salvation consists of the remission of sins and the imputation of Christ’s righteousness, and is the gracious gift of God, based upon the finished redemptive work of Jesus Christ on the cross, and is received by faith alone, apart from works.

The Holy Spirit
We believe in the full deity of the Holy Spirit, who indwells every believer, enabling obedience and spiritual growth.  He preserves each one of us unto eternity.

The Church
We believe that the church, the body of Christ, consists of all those who are born again and have been baptized into the body of Christ by the Holy Spirit at the moment of conversion.  We believe that commitment to the local church is necessary for the spiritual health of all those who are saved.
