Our Beliefs

man prayingWe believe the Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God and constitutes completed and final revelation.

The Bible, in its original autograph, is without error in whole and part; including theological truths as well as geographical and historical details.

We believe God has existed from all eternity in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is God, having come in human flesh, being fully God and fully man, except without sin.

We believe all men are in violation of God’s righteous requirements and His holy character both by nature and act: and are therefore under His wrath and just condemnation. The central purpose of the coming of Jesus Christ was to pay the penalty for man’s sin through His substitutionary death on the cross and subsequent, visible, bodily resurrection.

We believe salvation is offered as a gift: free to the sinner. The gift must be responded to in individual faith, not trusting in any personal works whatsoever, but the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ alone.
