Our Beliefs

 Doctrinal Statements & Creeds

In addition to the doctrinal statements listed below, we believe in the 3 historic creeds of the Church; the Apostles’, the Nicene, and the Athanasian.



We believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons–the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory; that this triune God creates all, upholds all, and governs all.


The Bible


We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, fully inspired, without error in the original manuscripts and the infallible rule of faith and practice.



We believe that all men are sinners by nature and choice and are therefore under condemnation; that God regenerates and baptizes by the Holy Spirit those who repent of their sins and confess Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.


The Church

We believe in the worldwide Church, the living spiritual body, of which Christ is the Head and all regenerated persons are members.


The Father


We believe in God the Father, an infinite personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power, and love and that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men, that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ




We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles and teachings, His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, and soon, personal, visible return to the earth. We believe that in His first coming Jesus inaugurated the fulfillment of the kingdom of God, and in His second coming He will consummate the fulfillment of the kingdom of God.




We believe in Jesus Christ, 

God’s only begotten Son, 

conceived by the Holy Spirit. 

The Sacraments

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ committed two ordinances to the church: baptism and the Lord’s Supper. We believe these Sacraments, water baptism and the Lord’s Supper (Communion), are open to all believers.



We believe in the laying on of hands for empowering of the Holy Spirit, for ordaining of ministers, for receiving gifts of the Holy Spirit and for healing.


The Holy Spirit

We believe in the Holy Spirit who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment to regenerate, sanctify, and empower for ministry all who believe in Christ. We believe the Holy Spirit dwells in every believer in Jesus Christ and that He is an abiding Helper, Teacher, and Guide. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and the exercise of all biblical gifts of the Spirit.


The Second Coming

We believe in the personal, visible, appearing of Christ to earth and the consummation of His Kingdom; in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment and eternal blessing of the righteous and endless suffering of the wicked.
