Our Core Beliefs


The Bible is the inspired Word of God, enduring forever. It is God’s special revelation to man, without error in the original manuscripts and in all its teachings. Human authors wrote the books that compose the Bible under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and it has supreme authority over our lives.
(2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Ps. 119:105, 160; Mark 13:31; John 8:31-32; 20:31; Acts 20:32)


There is one true and living God, who exists eternally in three persons, co-equal and one, yet executing distinct offices in divine work with full harmony.
(Gen. 1:1, 26; John 1:1-3; 14:10-11; Matt. 28:19; Eph. 4:4-6; Jude 20-21)


God the Father is an infinite and personal spirit, perfect and wholly good in every way, knowing all things throughout time, simultaneously transcendent and imminent in His gracious involvement with humanity. He hears and answers prayers, and He saves those who come to Him through the Son, seeking those who worship in spirit and truth.
(Ps. 90:2; Luke 10:21-22; John 3:16; 4:23-24; Rom. 1:19-20; 1 Tim. 2:5-6; 1 Peter 1:3)


Jesus Christ is God’s one and only Son, fully human and fully divine. He humbled Himself by taking on the form of a servant and was obedient to the point of death on the cross as the sinless Lamb of God to secure forgiveness for the sins and restoration of everlasting life for all who confess their sin and confess Him as Lord. He rose again on the third day, having conquered sin and death and is now seated at the Father’s side awaiting His triumphal return to gather His people and reign forever.
(Matt. 1:18-25; John 1:1-5; 10:14-18; 16:25-28, 33; Acts 1:11; Rom. 9:5; Heb. 4:14; 9:28)


The Holy Spirit came from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin and unrighteousness. He was sent to testify of Jesus Christ. He indwells and works in the life of believers by regenerating their hearts, sanctifying, guiding, empowering, and interceding for them.
(John 14:16-17, 26; 15:26-27; 16:7-14; Rom. 8:9; Gal. 5:22-26; Eph. 1:13-14; Titus 3:5)


The salvation of man is the sovereign work of God in response to humanity’s depravity and inability to regain a right-standing relationship with a holy God who originally created man in His image. The result of man’s sin is death, both spiritual and physical. Salvation from this death is secured by God as a free gift by grace alone, through faith alone, because Christ alone, and for the glory of God alone. This was secured by the atoning death of Jesus on the cross, where He exchanged our sin with His righteousness. Salvation is for all who believe in Jesus, repent of their sin, trust and confess Jesus as Lord and Savior. This results from the regeneration of hearts by the Spirit and gift of faith given to God’s children. Salvation is secured and maintained by God Himself in His grace and power.
(John 10:27-29; 14:6; Rom. 5:2; 6:23; 2 Cor. 5:21; Eph. 2:8-9; Titus 3:5; 1 Peter 1:3-5)


We exist for the glory of God and should be mindful and typify this truth in all things. Our aim is full maturity in Christ, obedient to all that He has commanded of us in love for Him. Scripture is authoritative in prescribing how we are to conduct ourselves.
(Isa. 43:7; Matt. 28:20; John 14:15; Col. 1:28; 2 Tim. 3:16-17)


Jesus Christ will return to earth to judge the living and dead and visibly establish His kingdom, reigning forever. There will be a resurrection of the body and those who are in Christ will be gloriously united with God in heaven for all of eternity, while the wicked will suffer for eternity separated from God in hell.
(Matt. 16:27; 1 Cor. 15:12-28, 35-57; Rev. 20:4-6, 11-15)
