What We Believe

We believe the Scriptures reveal the being, nature, and character of God, the nature of his creation, and especially his will for the salvation of human beings through Jesus Christ. The Bible is therefore our supreme and final authority in all matters, including the following:

We believe in God...

We believe in the one true, infinitely perfect, eternal, just, loving, personal God, the Creator. He alone sustains the universe. There is only one divine nature, one true God. He is the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

We believe in Jesus Christ...

He is at once both true God and true man. We believe in his eternal preexistence, his virgin birth, his miracles, his sinless life, his sacrificial death on the cross, his glorious bodily resurrection from the dead, his ascension into heaven, and his present work in heaven as High Priest and Advocate. Jesus Christ now resides at the right hand of the Father in heaven, and lives to indwell all who recognize their sinfulness, and turn their lives over to his authority. Jesus will return in glory to resurrect and judge all mankind.

We believe in the Holy Spirit...

We believe in his personal work in salvation, which includes granting us faith by God's Word, convicting us of sin, and granting us repentance. The Holy Spirit brings about the regeneration of lost sinners by dwelling in those who believe in Christ Jesus. This gives us new birth with the divine nature, which is Christ in us, the hope of glory. The Holy Spirit glorifies Jesus, reminds us of his teaching, and empowers us to abide in Christ, giving us gifts for godly living through loving self sacrifice and service.

Mankind...

We believe God created human beings in his image to fellowship with him and give him glory. Adam and Eve, the first human beings, rebelled against God and chose to go their own way. As a result, the sinful nature was passed on to all people, separating us from God. Because of sin (which includes both corruption and guilt), human beings are born with a nature that is incapable of pleasing God, or of trusting themselves to him. The only remedy is salvation by God's grace through faith in Jesus Christ.

Resurrection...

We believe Jesus Christ rose bodily from the dead, conquering sin, death, and all the powers of Satan. Christ's empty tomb, his many resurrection appearances, and the emergence of the Christian church, are historical evidence of his resurrection.

The Church...

We believe the church is the spiritual body of Jesus Christ (its Founder, Head, and Shepherd) and that it encompasses all true believers at all times and places. The function of the church is to carry out the Lord's expressed will through the power of the Holy Spirit. All people who place their confident trust in Jesus Christ for salvation belong to the church; they are the people of God. This community of believers is neither perfect nor sinless, but by grace their lives are coming more and more under the control of the Holy Spirit.

The Future...

We believe the Lord Jesus Christ will return to this earth, personally, bodily, and visibly to establish his glorious reign in a kingdom that will never end. As the sovereign Lord, he will resurrect and judge all humanity. Those who have received his offer of life through the Gospel will go to eternal blessings in heaven; those who have rejected it, to eternal conscious torment in hell. We look forward to the blessed hope, Christ's Second Coming in glory.
