The Authority and Power of the Bible
We teach and believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, without error in all that it affirms, and the only infallible rule of faith and practice. We affirm the power of God's word to accomplish His purpose of salvation. The message of the Bible is addressed to all men and women and through it, the Holy Spirit still speaks today.
(Isa. 55:11; Matt. 5:17-18; John 10:35; Rom. 1:16; 1 Cor. 1:21; Eph. 1:17-18, 3:10, 18; II Tim. 3:16; II Pet. 1:21; Jude 3)
The Holy Trinity
We believe in one eternal Triune God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that God the Father created heaven and earth. We believe that Jesus Christ was both the Son of God and the Son of Man and was crucified for our sins and resurrected on Easter. We believe in the Holy Spirit who dwells in all believers.
(Gen. 1:26; Isa. 40:28; Matt. 3:16-17, 28:19; John 1:1-51, 14:17-18; 1 Cor. 6:19, 8:6; 2 Cor. 3:16, 13:14; Eph. 1:20-21, 4:4-6; 1 Peter 1:2; 1 John 5:7-8)
We Are Saved by Grace
We believe that we are all sinners. We believe that Christ died for our sins, rose from the dead on Easter, and that salvation is ours by the grace of God through faith. We believe that it is our mandate to share the love and forgiveness of God with all who wish to share in it and believe in him.
(Matt. 28:19; Mark 12:30-31; John 3:16-19; Acts 4:12; Rom. 3:19-25. 6:6; Eph. 1:11, 2:8-9; I Tim. 2:5-6;)
We believe that the body and blood of Christ are present in, with, and under the bread and wine of communion. We believe that partaking of the body and blood of Christ in communion strengthens and preserves our faith and is an integral element of our faith.
(Matt. 26:26-28; Mark 14:22-24; Luke 22:19-20; 1 Corinthians 11:23-29)
