Our Beliefs

The Scriptures:

The Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments were given by the inspiration of God.  Therefore, all scripture is authoritative, infallible, and inerrant.  The Scriptures are the only sufficient rule for the faith and practice (Psalm 19:7; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21).

 

God

There is one God, the Maker, Preserver, and Ruler of all things, having in and of Himself, all perfections, and being infinite in them all. To Him all creatures owe the highest love, reverence and obedience that springs from faith (Deuteronomy 6:4; Psalm 145:3; John 1:3; 1 Corinthians 8:4-6; 1 Timothy 1:17).

 

The Trinity

The Scriptures reveal that the one God eternally exists in three persons: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  Each person has distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being (Matthew 3:16-17; Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14).

 

Providence

God from eternity, decrees or permits all things that come to pass, and perpetually upholds, directs and governs all creatures and all events; yet so as not in any wise to be the author or approver of sin nor to destroy the free will and responsibility of intelligent creatures (Isaiah 46:9-11; Proverbs 16:33; Colossians 1:17; Hebrews 1:3; James 1:13-15).

 

By Faith

We believe in God the Father Almighty as the creator of heaven and earth. We believe in Jesus Christ our Lord as the only begotten Son of God who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.  We believe He suffered under Pontius Pilate.  We believe He was crucified and buried and on the third day He rose again from the dead.  We believe He ascended to heaven and is seated on the right hand of God the Father Almighty.  We believe He will return again to judge the living and the dead.  We believe in the Church at large throughout the world.  We believe in the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sin, and life eternal.
