We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are
verbally inspired by God, are inerrant in the original writings, are
the Word of God, and the final authority in faith and conduct.
We believe in one God, the Creator of man and all things,
eternally existing in three Persons in a threefold relationship,
that of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary, and is God incarnate, the God-Man.
We believe that man was created in the image of God; that he
sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death but also
spiritual death, which is separation from God; that Adam's sin is
imputed to the whole race of mankind; that all human beings are born
with a sinful nature; and that when they reach the state of moral
responsibility become sinners before God in thought, word, and deed.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according
to the Scriptures as a substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who
believe on Him are freely justified before God and stand before Him
accepted in the character and merit of Jesus Christ.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ, in His
ascension into heaven, and that in His present glorified body He is
the Head of the church, the Lord of the individual believer, the
High Priest over the house of God, and the Advocate in the family of
We believe in the personal, imminent, pretribulational, and
premillennial second coming of Christ; first to receive His own to
Himself, and later to set up His earthly kingdom and to reign over
redeemed Israel and all nations; that is, to bring peace and
blessing to the whole world.
We believe that all who by faith receive the Lord Jesus Christ as
Saviour are born again of the Holy Spirit and Word of God, receive
the Holy Spirit and a new nature, and also are baptized by the Holy
Spirit into the body of Christ.
We believe that God is the spiritual Father of only those who
trust His Son, Jesus Christ, as Saviour, and that only those saved
through faith in Christ are spiritual brothers.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust;
the everlasting blessedness of the saved and the everlasting
punishment of the unsaved.
