THE SCRIPTURES: We believe the Holy Scriptures (Old and New Testaments) to be the only inspired, trustworthy and true, without error, Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16-17).

GOD: We believe there is only one God who eternally exists in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19).

JESUS: We believe Jesus Christ is God and the Promised Messiah. We also believe in Jesus' virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, His death that paid for our sin through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father and in his personal return in power and glory (John 1:1; Matthew 1:18-25; Hebrews 4:15; 9:15-28; 1 Corinthians 15:1-8; Acts 1:9-11).

HOLY SPIRIT: We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, who lives within and guides Christian so they are enabled to live godly lives (John 14:15-26; 16:5-16; Ephesians 1:13-14).

SALVATION: We believe that acceptance of Jesus Christ and corresponding renewal of the Holy Spirit are the only paths to salvation for lost, sinful men and women. (John 3:16; 5:24; Acts 2:37-41; Titus 3:3-7).

ETERNAL LIFE: We believe in eternal life, and that through an active faith in Jesus Christ as the Son of God, we can spend eternity with the Lord in Heaven. We also believe that a rejection of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior will result in judgment and hell (Matthew 25:31-46; Revelation 20:11-15).

CHRISTIAN UNITY: We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ, that all believers are members of His Body in their baptism, the Church (1 Corinthians 12:12-14; Ephesians 4:3-6).

HUMANITY: We believe that God created all human beings in His image. Therefore, we believe that human life is sacred from conception to its natural end; that we must honor the physical and spiritual needs of all people; following Christ's example, we believe that every person should be treated with love, dignity and respect (Psalm 139:13; Isaiah 49:1; Jeremiah 1:5; Matthew 22:37-39; Romans 12:20-21; Galatians 6:10).
