We believe that the Bible is the written revelation of God, and the 66 books of the Bible constitute the plenary Word by the Holy Spirit. The Word God in the original is absolutely inerrant, infallible, and God-breathed.
We believe God the Father, the first person of the Trinity, orders and disposes all things according to His own purpose and grace. We believe He is our salvation. He initiated our salvation. He gave His Son for the atonement of sin and raised Him from the dead. He begets those who believe the gospel. He forgives sin.
We believe that God the Son, the second person of the Trinity, possesses all the divine attributes and is coequal with God the Father and God the Spirit. He is called God.
We believe that God the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Trinity, possesses all the divine attributes and is coequal with God the Father and God the Son.
We believe that man is a sinner bound to a Christless eternity in Hell. Man fell into sin in the Garden and is totally depraved. Mankind's only hope for salvation is through Jesus Christ.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. By the resurrection of Christ from the grave, God the Father confirmed the deity of Christ, accepted the atoning work of the cross, guaranteed resurrection life for all believers and the future bodily resurrection and judgment of the wicked.
We believe the Holy Spirit's work with the church began at Pentecost as promised by God the Son, to initiate and complete the building of the body of Christ, which is His Church. The broad scope of the Holy Spirit's activity during this age includes convicting the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment, of glorifying the Lord Jesus Christ, and transforming believers into Christ-likeness.
We believe that the purpose of the Church is to glorify God by building itself up in the faith by instruction in the Word of God, by fellowship, by keeping the ordinances, and by evangelizing and discipling the world.
We believe that the Church began at Pentecost and will be bodily resurrected and raptured at Christ's return prior to the tribulation.
