We believe there is one God who is the Creator and the Ruler of the universe (Genesis 1:1). He eternally exists in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19).
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, in His virgin birth (Matthew 1:23), His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15; 7:26), His atoning death on the cross (1 Corinthians 15:3), His resurrection on the third day (John 11:25; 1 Corinthians 15:4), and that He will return again to reign as Lord of lords (Acts 1:11; 1 Timothy 6:13-16).
We believe in the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit that empowers each Christian to live a godly life (Romans 8:11). The body of each believer is a "temple" in which the Holy Spirit is present (1 Corinthians 6:19-20). Therefore, every believer must foster a life of being filled with the Spirit, which is both an initial and an ongoing experience for Christians (Ephesians 5:18). The Holy Spirit provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, guidance in doing what is right, and spiritual gifts to edify the church.
We believe that the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God and that men were moved by the Spirit to write the books of Scripture (2 Peter 1:20-21). The words of the Bible are the primary source for teaching and equipping Christians for a life of righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
We believe that the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross solely provides for the forgiveness of sins (Mark 10:45). Therefore, salvation is received only when a person places his faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as the sufficient payment for one's acknowledged sin (Acts 2:38). This salvation is not earned but a gift available by the grace of God alone (Ephesians 2:8-9).
We believe that for every Christian the old way of living for oneself is in the past and the new way of living for Christ is for the present and for the future (2 Corinthians 5:17). By obedience to the Scriptures and daily yielding to the Spirit we will mature and become conformed to the image of Christ, which should be exhibited by love for God and for one's neighbor (Matthew 22:37-39).
We believe that the church is the body of Christ, of which Jesus is the Head (Colossians 1:18). The purpose of the church is to gather believers to glorify God by being a powerful witness for Jesus Christ in a lost world (Matthew 28:18-20). God wants to edify and build up His church, this is why the Holy Spirit gives a variety of spiritual gifts to believers such as-encouragement, serving, teaching, healing, prophecy, etc. (Romans 12, 1 Corinthians 12) We practice two ordinances in the church instituted by Christ Himself: water baptism (Luke 3:21-22) and Holy Communion (Luke 22:14-20).
