we believe . . .

...that there is one true God, creator of all things, who eternally exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:1; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; I Timothy 1:17).

...that Jesus Christ is the one and only Son of God who died for our sins and arose from the dead

(John 3:16; 1 Corinthians 15:1-8; 2 Corinthians 5:21).

...that the Bible is the inspired and inerrant Word of God. It is the supreme source of truth and the final authority for all matters of Christian faith and practice (Psalm 119:105; 2 Timothy 3:16-17).

...that every person has worth as a creation of God, but that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Genesis 1:26-27; Romans 3:23).

...that the forgiveness of sins is available only by the grace of God through the blood of Jesus Christ. It is available to those who accept Christ as Savior and Lord (John 3:16; Acts 4:12; Ephesians 2:8-9).

...that those accepting Christ in faith should repent of sin, confess their faith, and be baptized into Him

(Romans 10:9-10; Acts 2:38; Romans 6:1-7).

...that the Holy Spirit is at work in the world today to make people aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He is in the life of every believer from the moment of salvation and equips them for personal growth and service to Jesus Christ (John 16:7-13, 14:16-17; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:22-25).

...that the church is the body of Christ on earth, empowered by the Holy Spirit, and exists to love God, love others, and make disciples (Matthew 28:18-20; Ephesians 4:1-16).

...that Jesus Christ will one day return to earth and reign forevermore (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18).
