We believe in the one true and living God, eternally existing in three persons — Father, Son, and Holy Spirit — eternal in being, identical in nature and equal in power and glory, having the same attributes and perfections. God is unchangeable in His holiness, justice, wisdom and love. God is the almighty Creator and Sustainer of all things. He is Savior and Judge Who governs all things according to His sovereign will and for His own glory.(Gen. 1 & 2; 26; 11:7; Is. 40:12-28; Matt. 3:16, 17; 28:19, 20; Jn. 1:1-3; 10:30; Acts 5:3, 4; Col.1:15-17; 2 Cor. 13:14; Heb. 1:8).
We believe that redemption from the guilt, penalty and power of sin is possible only through the vicarious, sacrificial death and bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ as our Representative and Substitute. Salvation is entirely a work of God’s grace and cannot be earned or deserved. All who believe in Christ are justified by faith alone, adopted into the family of God and receive eternal life(Jn. 1:12, 13; Rom. 5:6-21; 6:23; Eph. 2:8,9; Tit. 3:47).
We believe in the necessity of the work of the Holy Spirit to make the death of the Lord Jesus effective to the individual sinner bringing conviction of sin, regeneration and granting the sinner repentance towards God and saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit indwells the believer bringing assurance of salvation, a desire for holiness of life through separation from sin, commitment to serve his Lord and Savior and, through the process of sanctification, transforms the believer into increasing likeness to Christ(Jn. 3:5-8;16:7-15; Acts2:4; 4:31; 13:9, 52; 1 Cor. 2:9-16; 12:13; 2 Cor. 3:18; Gal. 5:16; Eph. 1:13, 14; 5:18-20).
We believe in the imminent personal and visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ, His millennial rule on earth, the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, God’s judgment of the living and the dead, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the eternal punishment of the wicked(Zech. 14:1-11; Acts 1:11; 1 Thess.4:13-5:10; Rev. 19:11-16; 20:1-6).
We believe in the one universal Church of Christ, which is His bride. The Church is the body of Christ and made up of all those who are born again. In its universal aspect the Church encompasses time and space but in its local expression is established for worship, mutual edification, and witness. While organizations like our own have been raised of God to fulfill the Great Commission to make disciples of all nations, the local church is the center of God’s program for world evangelization(Acts 13:1-3; 14:23, 27; 1 Cor. 1:2; 12:13; Gal.3:26-28; Eph. 1:22, 23; 5:2532; 1 Tim. 3:15).
