The Bible

We believe the Bible is the Word of God.

We believe the original manuscripts of both the Old and New Testaments are verbally inspired by God, inerrant and infallible.

We believe the present canon of Scripture, the Bible, containing the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments, is now complete and closed and is our only and final authority for what we are to believe and for the way we are to live.


2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:21, Revelation 22:18-19


Salvation

We believe, that in spite of man's sin and rebellion against God, God has continued to love man, all men and women, throughout every generation and in every part of the world.

Because of this love, God has provided for the salvation of man.

We believe the Bible has been given so we would know the need for, the origin, the nature, the conditions, and the ultimate objectives of that salvation.

Furthermore, we believe the salvation which God has provided for us is by grace, through faith alone in Christ, utterly apart from any human merit or work which man might do.

Once a person has trusted Christ for salvation, he can never lose his salvation.


John 3:16, Ephesians 2:4-7, 2 Peter 3:9, 1 John 3:1-2, 2 Peter 2:1, Ephesians 2:8-9, Titus 3:5, John 10:27-29, 2 Timothy 1:12, 1 Peter 1:3-5


The Trinity

We believe in One God who exists in three distinct Persons:

the Father, His Son (the Lord Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit.

They are equal in Deity, each One possessing all of the divine attributes.

All three are eternal, unchanging, and worthy of our faith, love and service.
Matthew 28:19-20, 2 Corinthians 13:14
