::About the Scriptures::
We believe the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God and that men were moved by the Holy Spirit to write the very words of Scripture. It is the complete revelation of God to Man. It has also been preserved through the ages and therefore, the Bible in the original autographs is without error.
:: About God ::
We believe in one God who exists in three distinct persons, (Father, Son and Holy Spirit). We believe that Jesus Christ is the second member of the Trinity, (the Son of God) who became flesh to reveal God to man and to become the Savior of the lost world.
:: About Mankind ::
We believe that Man was created in the image of God to have fellowship with Him, but became alienated from that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, Man is totally incapable of coming back into a right relationship with God by his own effort.
:: About Salvation ::
We believe that the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sins. Therefore, salvation only occurs when a person places his faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as the sufficient payment for his sins.
:: About the Christian Life ::
We believe that every Christian should live for Christ and not for himself. By obedience to the Word and daily yielding to the Spirit, every believer should mature and become conformed to the image of Christ.
:: About the Church ::
We believe that the church is the body of Christ of which Jesus Christ is the Head. The members are those who have trusted by faith the finished work of Christ. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by making him known to the lost world.
:: About Baptism ::
We practice baptism by immersion under water—the way Jesus was baptized, and the way the Bible commands.
For when you were baptized, you were buried with Christ, and in baptism you were also raised with Christ . . . (Colossians 2:12).
