The Bible is God's Word to us. 

The Bible was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the  supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs about living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without  error. 

2 Timothy 3:16, 1:13 

2 Peter 1:20-21 

Psalm 119:105, 160, 12:6 

Proverbs 30:5 

God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. 

He has eternally existed as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The three are coequal and are one  God. 

Genesis 1:1,26, 27, 3:22 

Psalm 90:2 

Matthew 28:19 

1 Peter 1:2 

2 Corinthians 13:14


Jesus is the Son of God.

He is coequal with the Father and Holy Spirit. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the  perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to  demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven and will return again someday to earth  to reign as King. 

Matthew 1:22, 23 

Isaiah 9:6 

John 1:1-5, 14:10-30 

Hebrews 4:14-15 

1 Corinthians 15:3-4 

Romans 1:3-4 

Acts 1:9-11 

1 Timothy 6:14-15 

Titus 2:13 

The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity. 

The Holy Spirit is coequal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make people  aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He provides Christians with power for living, understanding of  spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer spiritual gifts when they are  saved. As Christians we seek to live under His control daily. 

Acts 1:8 

1 Corinthians 3:17 

John 16:7-13, 14:16-17 

Galatians 5:25 

1 Corinthians 2:12, 3:16 

Ephesians 1:13, 5:18 

We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit.  

We believe that the church was empowered by the Holy Spirit in the book of Acts for the work of  building the Kingdom of God. (John 1:32-34; 20:22; Acts 2:1-4; 8:14-17; and 19:6) We believe in the operation of the Gifts of the Spirit as enumerated in 1 Corinthians 12-14, as manifested  in the Early Church. The miraculous gifts (including speaking in tongues) produced by the Holy Spirit  continue to function today just as they did when the Church was established. (1 Corinthians 12:4-11; 1  Peter 4:10; Ephesians 4:7-12). 

We believe in the Spirit-filled life. 

This is a life of separation from the world, and a life dedicated to God’s work through the leading of the  Holy Spirit. (Ephesians 5:18; 2 Corinthians 6:14; 7:1) 

Salvation is God's free gift to us, but we must accept it. 

We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as  God's offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin's penalty. When we turn from our self-ruled life  and turn to Jesus in faith we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his  life by faith. 

Romans 6:23 

Ephesians 2:8-9 

John 14:6, 1:2 

Titus 3:5 

Galatians 3:26 

Romans 5:1, 10:9-10


Baptism is symbolic of the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ. 

Once we have accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior, baptism is a way for us to publicly declare our new  life in Christ. It is also a step of obedience based on God’s commands and allows us to follow the  example of Jesus, who submitted himself to baptism to "fulfill all righteousness." Matthew 3:16-17, 28:18-20 

Acts 2:41, 8:12


Marriage is the covenant relationship between a man and a woman.  

The importance of this union to society requires that we support and protect marriage as the Word of God  does. 

Genesis 2:24 

Romans 1:27 

Ephesians 5:22,25 

1Peter 3:1-7 

In addition to these basic fundamentals we also hold that: 

The church of Jesus Christ is the last instrument that God is using to extend His kingdom prior to the  second coming of Christ (Matthew 16:18; Ephesians 1:20-23; 3:10). 

The local church is autonomous, that is, it is self-governing, self-supporting and self-propagating in its  mature state (Acts 2; 13:1-4). 

The biblical form of church government is a plurality of elders with a Lead Pastor who all qualify on the  basis of 1 Timothy 3 in spiritual life, character, domestic life and ruling ability. 

Every believer in Christ must be subject to God's authority in a specific local church for spiritual  protection and long term fruitfulness (Hebrews 13:17).


The theological framework for understanding all of God's dealings with mankind is to be found in the  divine covenants revealed in Scripture. 

We believe in the public gathering of the Church together for prayer, worship, teaching and preaching of  the Bible and the administering of the sacraments of the church (Acts 2; I Corinthians 11; Hebrews  10:25). 


In addition to essential beliefs, we have liberty in non-essential beliefs. 

Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters… Who are you to judge  someone else’s servant? To his own master he stands or falls… So then each of us will give an account of  himself to God… So whatever you believe about these things keep between yourself and God.  Romans 14:1,4,12,22 

If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that  can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.  

1 Corinthians 13:2
