Section 1 – The Holy Scriptures

We believe that the sixty-six (66) books of the Holy Bible, as originally written, are the verbal, full, complete, inspired Word of God and the product of Spirit-controlled men.

We believe that the Scriptures are without error.

We believe the Bible is the true center of Christian union and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds and opinions shall be tried (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:19-21; Revelation 22:18-19).

Section 2 – The Godhead

We believe in the one triune God, existing in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, eternal in being, identical in nature, equal in power and glory, having the same attributes and perfection (Deuteronomy 6:14; 2 Corinthians 13:14).

Section 3 – The Person and Work of Jesus Christ

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man without ceasing to be God.

We believe that He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful man.

We believe that He accomplished redemption not only for us, but for the entire human race.

We believe that He is the propitiation for the sins of the whole world through His death on the cross as the perfect sacrifice; that this salvation is conditioned upon personal acceptance of Jesus Christ as Savior. This redemption is made sure to us by His literal physical resurrection from the dead (John 1:1-2, 12, 14; Luke 1:35; Romans 3:24-25, 4:25; 1 John 2:2; Hebrews 2:9; 1 Peter 1:3-5).

We believe the Lord Jesus Christ is now in heaven, exalted at the right hand of God where, as the High Priest for His people, He fulfills the ministry of representative, intercessor, and advocate (Hebrews 9:24, 7;25; Romans 8:34; 1 John 2:12).

Section 4 – The Personality and Work of the Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit convicts the world of sin, indwells all believers in the present age, baptizes them into the body of Christ, seals them unto the day of redemption and that it is the duty of every believer to be filled with the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 12:12-14; Ephesians 1:13-18; John 16:8-11; 2 Corinthians 3:6).

We believe that the Holy Spirit bestows spiritual gifts on believers (Hebrews 2:4; 1 Corinthians 12:7-11).

We believe that according to the New Testament Scriptures that the spiritual gifts of speaking in tongues, apostleship, healing, prophecy, knowledge and the working of sign miracles gradually ceased as the New Testament Scriptures were completed and the Canon was closed (1 Corinthians 13:8-11; Ephesians 4:3-16).

We believe that God does hear and answer the prayers of faith, in accordance with His own will, for the sick and afflicted (John 15:7; 1 John 5:14-15; James 5:15).
