    WE BELIEVE the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, inerrant Word of God
    (2 Timothy 3:15; 2 Peter 1:21).

    WE BELIEVE there is only one God, eternally existent in three persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:1; Matthew 28:19; John 10:30).

    WE BELIEVE in the deity of Christ (John 10:33); His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:35); His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15; 7:26); His miracles (John 2:11); His vicarious and atoning death (1 Corinthians 14:3; Ephesians 1:7; Hebrews 2:9); His resurrection (John 11; 25; 1 Corinthians 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 human nature and that men are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ and that only by God’s grace and through faith alone we are saved (John 3:16-19; Romans 3:23; Romans 5:8-9; Ephesians 2:8-10; Titus 3:15).

    WE BELIEVE in the resurrection of both the saved and lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation (John 5:28-29).

    WE BELIEVE in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 8:9;
    1 Corinthians 12:12-13; Galatians 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 (Romans 8:13-14; 1 Corinthians 3:16; 6:19-20; Ephesians 4:39; 5:18).

    WE BELIEVE that all true believers endure to the end. Those whom God has accepted in Christ, and
    sanctified by His Spirit, never fall away from the state of grace, but shall persevere to the end. Believers may fall into sin through neglect and temptation, whereby they grieve the Spirit, impair their graces and comforts, bring reproach on the cause of Christ, and temporal judgments on themselves, yet they shall be kept by the power of God through faith and salvation. (Genesis 12:1-3; Exodus 19:5-8; 1 Samuel 8:4-7,19- 22; Isaiah 5:1-7; Matthew 16:18-19, 25:34; Luke 1:68-79, 2:29-32, 24:44-48; John 1:12-14.

    WE BELIEVE marriage is a covenant between one man and one woman and God immutably bestows gender
    upon each person as male or female to reflect His image. (Genesis 2:22-24)
