what we believe

Below you will find a short summary of our beliefs on some key doctrines of the Christian faith. We encourage you, not to take our word for it, but to explore God’s Word for yourself.

Here is our brief Statement of Faith:

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative, inerrant Word of God (2 Tim. 3:16, 2 Pet. 1:21).

We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He is the Father of creation. He is the Son of redemption. He is the Holy Spirit operating today (Gen 1:1, Matt 28:19, John 10:30).

We believe in the deity of Christ (John 10:33); His virgin birth (Isa. 7:14, Matt 1:23, Luke 1:35); His sinless life (Heb. 4:15, 7:26); His miracles (John 2:11); His vicarious and atoning death (1 Cor. 15:3, Eph. 1:7, Heb. 2:9); His resurrection (John 11:25, I Cor. 15:4); His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19); His personal return in power and glory (Acts 1:11, Revelation 19:11).

We believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of humanity; and that all are justified only by faith in the shed blood of Christ and that only by God’s grace, through faith alone, we are saved (John 3:16-19, 5:24, Rom. 3:23, 5:8-9, Eph. 2:8-10, Titus 3:5).

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (Rom. 8:9, 1 Cor. 12:12-13, Gal 3:26-28).

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly Life (Rom. 8:13-14, I Cor. 3:16; 6:19-20, Eph. 4:30, 5:15).

What if we have some doctrinal differences on what you believe? If you don’t agree with us – that’s okay! You can still study with us through the Bible. Whether you disagree with us on a few things, we can still help you read and understand what the Bible says. Whatever you believe, we are thoroughly convinced that God loves you, and for that reason, we love you too.
