•     We believe in one God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19; II Corinthians 13:14; Genesis 1:2; John 1:1-2). We believe in God the Father Almighty, creator of all things visible and invisible (Genesis 1-2; John 1:3-4; Acts 17:24-28).

•     We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s one and only Son, our one and only Savior (I John 4:9; John 3:16) both fully human and fully divine (Colossians 2:9; Philippians 2:6-8), conceived of the Holy Spirit by the Virgin Mary (Matthew 1:18; Luke 1:26-38); died, was buried and rose from the dead on the third day (Luke 23:44-24:8; John 19:30-20:18); who ascended into Heaven and now sits at the right hand of the Father (Luke 22:69; Luke 24:50-53; Acts 1:1-9); who will return to earth to judge both the living and the dead (Matthew 24:36-42; Acts 10:42).

•     We believe in the Holy Spirit who is an active and operative part of the triune God (John 16:7-15; Acts 1:8; Romans 8:26-27) and indwells every Christian (Acts 2:17-18; I Corinthians 6:19; II Timothy 1:14).

•    We believe the Bible is God’s Holy Word; that God inspired the original writings of the Scripture and they are consequently without error (Acts 1:16; II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20-21). We accept the Bible as the final authority for all matters of faith and practice (Matthew 5:18; Romans 15:4; Hebrews 4:12).

•    We believe that man, created by God, willfully sinned against God is consequently lost and without hope apart from Jesus Christ (Romans 3:21-24; Acts 4:12).

•    We believe that salvation—the forgiveness of sins—is only by grace through the blood of Jesus Christ (Ephesians 2:8-9; I Peter 1:18-19; I John 1:7).

•    We believe that one receives God’s grace by putting faith in Christ, repenting of sin, confessing Christ and being immersed in Christ, but that none of these is sufficient in and of itself for the assurance of salvation (Acts 3:19; Romans 10:9; Acts 2:38; Romans 6:1-7; I Peter 3:21).

•    We believe the Church of Jesus Christ was founded on the Day of Pentecost and consists of all Christians everywhere (Acts 2:14-47).

•     We believe that God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male or female, and that these two distinct complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God (Genesis 1:26-27).

•     We believe that God created marriage to be exclusively the union of one man and one woman, and that intimate sexual activity is to occur exclusively within that union (Genesis 2:18-25, Ephesians 5:21-33, 1 Corinthians 7:2).
