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 Jesus Christ is eternal God, without beginning or end (Micah 5:2). We believe that Jesus, born of a virgin (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23), is fully God (Isaiah 9:6) and fully man (Hebrews 2:14), yet without a sin nature (Hebrews 7:26). We believe that Jesus was crucified, died, and buried as a substitutionary atonement for our sins (1 Peter 2:24) and that He ascended bodily on the third day (Luke 24:46) and is seated at the right hand of the Father (Hebrews 1:3). We believe that Jesus is going to physically return for His people (Matthew 24:30-31) and judge the world (John 5:22).
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 personal repentance of one’s own sins (Acts 3:19) and acceptance of Christ’s atoning work on the cross (Romans 10:9-10) is the only way of salvation and that there is salvation in no other religion of men (Isaiah 43:11; Acts 4:12; John 14:6; 1 Timothy 2:5).
