God is creator of all things, infinitely perfect, and existing in three manifestations: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. God is one eternal ever-living God. He is ever-loving, holy in nature and in purpose and is absolute indivisible deity. (Deut. 6:4, John 10:30, John 14:9)
The Bible is the inspired Word of God, a divine revelation from God to man. We accept the Scriptures as the final authority in all matters of faith and conduct. (2 Tim. 3:16-17, 2 Pet. 1:20-21)
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, born of a virgin; that he lived a sinless life, was crucified on Calvary for our sins, and bodily rose from the grave; and that he has been exalted to the throne of God where he is the only mediator between God and man. We believe that through his death and life we have personal salvation and power for victorious living. (Luke 1:26-38, II Cor. 5:21, Heb. 4:15, 9:22, Eph. 2:4-10)
Salvation is God's gracious gift, offered to all people. All have sinned and stand in need of redemption, which is obtained through the new birth by faith in the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. Those repenting of sin and being born again become God's Children.
Following faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, new believers are commanded by the Word of God to be baptized in water as public evidence of that faith. Water baptism is an important part of our Christian experience. It is another step in our journey from a life of sin to a life with Jesus. (John 3:5, Acts 2:38, 10:46-48)
THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe that the Holy Spirit is active in the world today and that the baptism of the Holy Spirit, with His accompanying gifts, is the privilege of all believers. "The promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call." (John 3:5, Acts 2:38-39, 8:14-17, 10:44-48, 19:1-7)
The church was God's idea, built by Him and purchased by him. It has been called out of the world to be a group of people who follow Jesus Christ. These Christ-followers, through the power of the Holy Spirit, will affect genuine spiritual change in their communities. As the body of Christ on earth, the church offers hope to humanity. The church is one group of people made up of many members, diverse in their gifts and callings of the Holy Spirit. (Matt 16:18, Acts 20:28)
