WE BELIEVE that the Bible is God’s inspired Word. The original manuscripts contain no errors. The Bible available to us today reflects God’s divine message to mankind. It has been supernaturally preserved, and is how we learn who God is and how we can know God’s divine intention from ages past, as well as His plan and purpose yet to be revealed. The Bible is our authority and therefore teaches us, reproves us, corrects us, and trains us in righteousness so that we may be complete and equipped for every good work.
WE BELIEVE that God exists eternally in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. While the Trinity is a mystery, we believe that these three are distinct, yet are one God. (A 4th Century Creed may help with the understanding of the Trinitarian belief can be viewed by clicking HERE.)
WE BELIEVE in God as absolute and sole Creator of the Universe, and that creation was by Divine Action, not through evolutionary process.
WE BELIEVE that God, the Son, came to earth in the flesh; we understand Him as Jesus Christ. He was born of a virgin and lived a sinless life, therefore, fulfilling the Father’s righteous requirements under the Law of Moses. The four Gospels reveal the teachings of Jesus as well as His signs and wonders. His perfect life and His supernatural works prove that everything said about Jesus and everything Jesus said about Himself is true.
WE BELIEVE that God, by sovereign choice and out of love for men, sent Jesus into the world to save sinners. Jesus took the sins of mankind upon himself and was considered by the Father as the single acceptable sacrifice for the forgiveness of sins. By dying on the cross, Jesus’ shed blood divinely covers the sins of all who believe. Because of Christ’s sacrifice, mankind can be removed from the curse of the law and exist in a right relationship with God, the Father.
WE BELIEVE that while Jesus died He did not stay dead, but that on the third day following His crucifixion, Jesus arose from the grave. We understand Christ’s resurrection to be the Father’s acceptance of the Lord’s sacrifice and thus His approval of all who are born again. The conditions for salvation are repentance from sin, and belief in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
WE BELIEVE that Jesus ascended into heaven where He exists in a place of power and authority as head of His church here on earth. He prays and actively works on behalf of believers everywhere until the day He returns to physically set up His Kingdom and rule over all the nations on earth.
