What We Believe

The following statements reflect what we believe to be aligned with biblical teachings.


We believe there is only one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Each distinct from the Other, and Each is fully God, yet They are perfectly harmonized in Their Triune Being.

Genesis 1:1, Deuteronomy 6:4, Matthew 28:19, John 10:30, 1 Corinthians 8:6

Jesus Christ

We believe in the deity of our Lord, Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His future return to this earth in power and glory, and His present life for us as High Priest and Advocate.

Matthew 1:23, Mark 16:19, Luke 1:34-35, John 2:11; 10:33; 11:25; 14:6, Acts 1:11, 1 Corinthians 15:3,4, Hebrews 4:15; 7:26, Revelation 19:11-13, 14-16, Isaiah 7:14

The Holy Spirit

We believe in the threefold work of the Holy Spirit: that He seeks out and brings the lost to salvation; that He sanctifies the believer; and that He baptizes the believer into the body of Christ, giving spiritual gifts to the Christian for service. We believe in the continuance of gifts as found in 1 Corinthians 12:4-11. We believe that the Holy Spirit is our Comforter, Teacher, and guarantee of our inheritance.

John 14:26; 16:7-11, Acts 1:8, Romans 8:1-11, 1 Corinthians 12:4-11, Galatians 5:22, Ephesians 1:13-14; 4:4-5

The Bible

We believe the Bible to be the inspired and only infallible and authoritative Word of God. We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament as being verbally and completely inerrant in the original writings and of supreme and final authority in faith and life. We believe that God has not added to, deleted from, or altered the canon of the Bible with subsequent writings and revelations.

2 Timothy 3:15-17, 2 Peter 1:21


We believe that lost and sinful man must be saved, and that man’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scripture as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who have faith in Him are redeemed and justified on the grounds of His shed blood. We believe that salvation is by grace, through faith, and is a free gift from God. It is not attained by our own works. Therefore it cannot be earned by good works apart from faith. We believe that regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal salvation.

John 3:16-19; 5:24, Romans 3:23; Romans 5:8-9, Ephesians 2:8-10, Titus 3:5

Spiritual Gifts

We believe that God utilizes ALL the spiritual gifts as given in Scripture, in accordance with His perfect will. We believe each Christian is endowed with both general gifts and specific gifts. Each believer is unique unto the Lord, and each is uniquely gifted. It is our job as believers to discover our gifts and use them in our service both to God and to each other. We believe in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy life. We believe that the filling of the Holy Spirit is a baptism of power. The Spirit is given to all who believe, and we should seek the filling and empowering of the SpiritThe primary, initial characteristic of the filling of the Holy Spirit is a release of LOVE in and through the life of the believer. Other signs may accompany this, but Love is the essential one.

Romans 8:13-14; 12; 1 Corinthians 3:16, 6:19-20; 12; 14; Ephesians 4:30, 5:18
