Our Convictions and Beliefs

The Bible – We believe the Bible, consisting of the Old and New Testament, to be the only inspired, inerrant, infallible, authoritative Word of God written.

The Trinity – We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons:  Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

The Lord Jesus Christ – We believe in the deity of Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.

Redemption – We believe that for salvation of lost and sinful man regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.

The Holy Spirit – We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by Whose indwelling power and fullness the Christian is enabled to live a godly life in this present evil world.

The Resurrection – We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

Spiritual Unity – We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in Christ.
