What We Believe
We believe in one God who exists in three equally divine Persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
We believe the Bible is the Word of God and the ultimate authority in every area of life.
The Human Condition
We believe that God made mankind in His image, mankind fell into sin and the only path back to God is through faith in Jesus Christ.
We believe that Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man. Faith in Him and belief in His perfect life, sacrificial death on the cross and glorious resurrection provide the only way for people to be forgiven of their sins and reconciled with God.
The Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit is fully God and indwells those who have placed their faith in Christ. He convicts the world of sin, empowers, guides, illuminates, and equips Christians to live a life that honors God.
We believe in the personal, bodily and premillennial return of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe that God commands everyone to believe the gospel by turning to Him in repentance and receiving the Jesus Christ as Lord. We believe that God will raise the dead bodily and judge the world, assigning the unbeliever to condemnation and eternal conscious punishment and the believer to eternal joy with the Lord in the new heaven and the new earth.
