We believe that the Holy Bible is the Word of God. The Bible is completely trustworthy and determines our belief and practice (2 Tim. 3:16-17).
We believe that there is one God who exists eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Dt. 6:4; Mt. 28:18-19; 2 Cor. 13:14).
We believe in Christ’s Virgin Birth, sinless life, as well as His substitutionary and sacrificial death upon the cross (Mt. 1:21-25; Heb. 4:15; 2 Cor. 5:21; 1 Pet. 3:18).
We believe that Jesus Christ rose from the dead bodily and ascended to heaven (1 Cor. 15:3-4; Acts 1:9-11).
We believe that God directly created mankind in His own image (Gen. 1:26-27). However, since sin entered humanity, all people are estranged from God because of sin (Rom. 3:10, 23; 5:12).
We believe that God, in His love and grace, sent Jesus Christ to offer a once-for-all sacrifice for sin. We believe that God offers salvation as a gift to every person who personally believes in Jesus Christ as Savior (Jn. 3:16; Eph. 2:8-9; Heb. 10:11-12; 1 Jn. 2:2).
We believe that everyone who truly believes has new spiritual life, is accepted by God, and is eternally secure (Jn. 5:24; 10:28-29).
We believe in the existence and personality the holy angels as well as of Satan and his demons (Job. 38:6-7; Ezek. 28:12-15; Mt. 25:31, 41).
We believe that all who reject (finally) Christ’s salvation will be separated from God for all eternity in a place of conscious punishment prepared for Satan and his demons (Mt. 25:41; Jn. 3:18, 36).
We expect that Jesus Christ will return shortly to take all true believers to heaven (1 Thess. 4:13-18).
We believe that God will literally fulfill all His promises to national Israel, including the earthly blessings of a millennial kingdom (Rom. 11:1-29; Rev. 20:4-6).
We believe that those who believe should be baptized by immersion in identification with Christ (Mt. 28:18-20; Acts 8:38-39; Rom. 6:3-4).
We believe that the Lord’s Supper should be observed regularly by believers as a memorial of Christ’s death (1 Cor. 11:23-28).
We believe that since Christians belong to God, their lives should be characterized by holiness and that the church must separate from religious apostasy (2 Cor. 6:14-7:1; 1 Pet. 1:15-16; 1 Jn. 2:15-17; 2 Jn. 9-11).
