2 Chronicles 7:14
- Infallible, Inspired word of God to all people
- Written by human authors through the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
- The absolute truth.
- Source of all doctrine, instruction, correction, and reproof.
- The Bible testifies there is one God and that He eternally is existent in three persons which is the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
- The Father is the creator and sustainer of all things.
- The Son is Jesus Christ, God and man in one person.
- The Holy Spirit is the spirit of God who empowers us for service, witness, cleanses man from the old nature, and conforms us to the image of Christ.
- Salvation is a free gift from God that cannot be earned through our own efforts.
- We believe that Jesus Christ died on a cross and rose from the dead so that whoever believes in him and follows His ways would have eternal life.
- The blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, is the only pathway to salvation through forgiveness of sins.
- Local community of baptized believers unified through faith in Jesus Christ.
- We will preach the teachings of Christ, obey the commands of God, and bring the Gospel to the world.
- Man is made in the image of God to have fellowship with God, but became separated through sin.
- Only through Jesus Christ is man restored and forgiven and through the gift of the Holy Spirit is man reconnected with God.
- Man and woman were created to exist forever alongside God, but due to sin, they were separated from God.
- To live apart from God is a decision that leads to an eternity separate from God (hell).
- Believing in Jesus Christ and living a life led by the Holy Spirit leads to an eternity in heaven in the presence of God.
