What we Believe

We believe that the traditional creeds of the church (ie the Apostle's Creed and the Nicene Creed) summarize the foundational truths of the Christian Faith.

In particular, we believe that:

GOD is.... Sovereign; Creator; Personal; Self-Existent; Tri-unity; Holy; Good; Infinite; Unchanging; All-Knowing; All-Powerful; Everywhere-Present

(Gen 1:1; 1:26; Deut 6:4; Matt 28:19-20; John 4:24; 10:30, 2 Cor 13:14)

JESUS CHRIST is... God Incarnate, Born of a Virgin; Impeccable; Our Substitute, Bodily Resurrected, Sole Mediator between us and God, Returning Again

(John 1:1-14; Rom 3:23-25; Acts 2:24-27; 1 Tim 2:5; Titus 2:13)

the HOLY SPIRIT is... the Third Person of the Godhead who Regenerates, Indwells, Baptizes, and Seals all believers at the time of conversion, and Fills and Gives Spiritual Gifts to all believers who are yielded to God

(Matt 28:19; Acts 2:3-7; Rom 8:9; 1 Cor 2:12; 6:19; 12:7-13; Eph 4:30)

the BIBLE is... inspired of God; Inerrant and Infallible; the Final Standard of faith and practice for the believer

(Matt 5:18; 2 Tim 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21)

HUMANKIND is... created male and female in the Image of God; sinned in Adam and is now a Sinner by nature and choice; maintains the Essence of God's Image even in his fallenness; Grows and Develops; will face Judgement one day. Marriage is the one-flesh union between a male and female as ordained from God Himself. (Gen 1:26-27; 2:18-25 ,3:16; Rom 3:10-18; 5:12-14; James 3:9; Luke 2:52)

SALVATION is... by Grace through Faith in Jesus Christ; apart from Merit, Ceremonies, or Works; Salvation brings eternal life with God

(Acts 4:12; 16:31; Eph 2:8-10; 1 Peter 1:3-5; 1 John 5:11-13; Rom 8:35-39)

EVANGELISM is... at the heart of God; the Purpose for all believers; integral and indispensable to our growth and discipleship as followers of Christ

(Matt 28:19; Acts 1:8; Mark 1:17; 2 Cor 5:11-20)
