Believe

What do We Believe?

  1. The Bible is God’s Word: The infallible Word of God, the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments, is uniquely and fully inspired by the Holy Spirit. The Bible is the final authority on all matters about which it speaks.
  2. One triune God: We believe in one God, the sovereign Creator and Sustainer of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  3. The incarnate & divine Christ: Jesus Christ became flesh through His miraculous conception and His virgin birth. He is true God and true man united in one Person forever. He died on the cross—a sacrifice for our sins. On the third day, He arose bodily from the dead and ascended into heaven, where he reigns at the right hand of the Majesty on High. Christ will come again to the earth—personally, visibly, and bodily—to judge the living and the dead, and to consummate history and the eternal plan of God.
  4. New Life in the Holy Spirit: The Holy Spirit convicts us of sin and draws us to the Savior. Indwelling our hearts, He gives us new life. He empowers us and imparts gifts to us for service; instructs and guides us into all truth; and seals us for the day of redemption.
  5. Salvation through grace & faith alone: Being estranged from God and condemned by our sinfulness, our salvation is wholly dependent upon the work of God’s free grace. God credits His righteousness to those who put their faith in Christ alone for their salvation, thereby justifying them in His sight. Only those who are born of the Holy Spirit and receive Jesus Christ become children of God and heirs of eternal life.
  6. One catholic Church: The true Church is composed of all people who through saving faith in Jesus Christ and the sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit are united together in the body of Christ.
  7. The Great Commission: The Lord Jesus Christ commands all believers to proclaim the Gospel throughout the world and to make disciples of all nations.
