We believe there is only one true and living God. He is immutable, indefatigable and infinite. He is not only a reality. He is the Ultimate Reality, an intelligent Spirit, and the Creator of all. He is God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is Christ in present tense empowering the believer, energizing the church and encouraging Christians that God is still with us. He convicts us of sin. He points us to truth. He leads us into righteousness.
We believe Jesus is Savior, Lord Christ, and the incarnate reality of God. He was the walking revelation of God’s love to humanity. He embodied grace. He died on the cross for the redemption of God’s creation. He got up on Easter morning to confirm to the world that God is still in control of Heaven and Earth.
We believe that the scripture is God’s Word. It is his written authority for the Church. The scripture was given to ordinary men through inspiration. The scripture is inerrant in principle and infallible in content.
We believe in God’s saving grace; that the blessings of salvation are free to all through the Gospel; that the requisite of acceptance is a thankful, penitent and obedient faith; that nothing interferes with the salvation of the sinner except his refusal of the Gospel. Man’s disbelief is his condemnation.
We believe baptism is an ocular demonstration of God’s inward renewal in the life of the believer. In baptism our names are changed. In the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit we are placed under the authority of God’s power and protection. It is the symbol of Christ’s death, burial and resurrection to a new life. It is a prerequisite to the privileges of the church in relation to the Lord’s Supper. Jesus Christ took bread and wine established them as the imperishable symbols of the church. The Lord’s table is open to all people in the faith who desire to fellowship with Him.
We believe that justification is being brought into a right relationship with God. His position is accomplished without consideration of good works (of righteousness). That justification is the pardoning of sin, the gift of eternal life displays God’s love for human-kind, and that by faith in the redemptive blood of Jesus Christ was His righteousness given to us.
