WE BELIEVE the Bible is the only infallible rule for faith and practice (Psalm 1). We believe in the plenary (complete) inspiration and inerrancy of the Bible’s original manuscripts (2 Timothy 3:16) and in God’s providential care to preserve a reliable copy of His Word through every generation (Matthew 5:18).
WE BELIEVE there is but one true God (Deuteronomy 6:4), in three distinct Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19). We believe that the three Persons of the Trinity are coequal and coeternal (John 10:30).
WE BELIEVE in Heaven and Hell (Matthew 25:46). We believe that the wages of sin is eternal death, but the free gift of God is eternal life (Romans 3:23). We believe that after death there is no purgatory, reincarnation, or soul annihilation (Hebrews 9:27), but eternal life or eternal damnation.
WE BELIEVE that man is born totally depraved (Genesis 6:5); that the entire being of man - mind, will and emotions - is infected and enslaved by sin (John 8:34); and that the unregenerate man is incapable of saving himself or even seeking for God (Romans 3:11;Romans 8:7), apart from the gracious work of the Holy Spirit (John 6:63).
WE BELIEVE that salvation is by grace through faith alone, apart from any works (Ephesians 2:8-9), and that good works are the evidence of true salvation, not the cause (Ephesians 2:10).
