What We Believe:
We believe the God of the Bible is the only true God, infinite in power, wisdom and goodness. God
reveals himself as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, three equal, distinct but inseparable persons.
We believe the Father is the creator, ruler and preserver of all things. He is infinite in power,
wisdom, justice, goodness and love. He has provided the means by which people may enjoy a
relationship with Him and eventual freedom, with all of creation, from evil.
We believe Jesus Christ is truly God and truly man, the perfect and inseparable union of the divine
and human natures. He is the Son of God made flesh, born of the Virgin Mary by the power of the
Holy Spirit. His sinless life, suffering, death, resurrection and ascension provide the only way of
salvation. His sacrifice on the cross, once for all, provides the only way to the Father. Now he
intercedes for us before the Father, awaiting the day when He will return to judge every person
and establish His kingdom.
We believe the Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and Son as God. He is present in the world to
make people aware of sin, righteousness and judgment. He leads people through faithful response
to the gospel, and lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He empowers the Church
to carry out Christ’s mission in the world, enables believers to live a fruitful Christian life, and
endows each believer with spiritual gifts according to His will. He guides the faithful into all truth,
which is always in harmony with the truth given in the Scriptures.
We believe The Bible, both Old and New Testaments, is the only written Word of God. Inspired by
God and written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit, the Bible
reveals all that is necessary for knowing God’s will, salvation and Christian growth. It is the guide and
final authority for faith and conduct of individuals and the teaching and purpose of the Church.
We believe People are made in the image of God and are the supreme object of God’s creation.
Since the fall of Adam, all people are born with an attitude of rebellion toward God called sin, which
separates people from God. This corruption is so pervasive that people are not capable of a positive
response to God. Only through the work of God can people be saved from the corruption of sin and
restored to the relationships which God has intended for us.
We believe God offers people forgiveness through Jesus Christ’s death on the cross, the perfect
sacrifice for the sins for the whole world. Forgiveness cannot be earned through good works, self-improvement, or religious ceremony. It is a gift for all people who repent of their sins and trust in
Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness, their sins are forgiven, they are declared right in God’s
sight, made a new person by the Holy Spirit, and adopted into the family of God. These benefits
are known as salvation, and this salvation is complete and secure. The fullness of God’s great
salvation will come with the return of Christ.
