Faith and Values
WE BELIEVE that God is the Creator and Sustainer of the universe and the source of all truth.
WE BELIEVE, without reservation, in the verbal plenary inspiration and inerrancy of the original documents of the Holy Scriptures as expressed in the Old and New Testaments and accept whatever they declare to be true as the authority of God Himself speaking therein.
WE BELIEVE that there is one and only one living and true God, and in the unity of the Godhead there are three persons-Father, Son, and Holy Spirit of one substance, power, and eternity.
WE BELIEVE that man was created in the image of God that our first parents were seduced by the temptations of Satan, sinned, and fell. By this fall, all mankind became dead in sin and corrupt in nature. This corruption is transmitted from generation to generation, and therefore man is in need of regeneration and pardoning grace for restoration.
WE BELIEVE that Jesus Christ is God's only begotten Son, the Mediator between God and man, the second person in the Trinity, Who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit in the womb of the virgin Mary, and thus possessing two whole, perfect and distinct natures-Godhood and manhood.
WE BELIEVE that Christ died on the cross to make a substitutionary atonement for sinners, was buried, and on the third day He rose from the dead with the same body in which he suffered, with which also He ascended into heaven and there sits at the right hand of the Father making intercession for His people, and in the Father's own time will personally return to judge men and angels and to bring in the kingdom of Glory.
WE BELIEVE in the Holy Spirit as the third Person of the Trinity, of the same substance and equal in power and glory with the Father and the Son, to be loved, obeyed, and worshipped, and that He regenerates men by His grace, convicts them of sin, moves them to repentance, persuades and enables them to embrace Christ by faith and unites all believers to Christ.
WE BELIEVE the Gospel of Christ and that there is no other way for salvation.
