What We Believe
We believe in the Holy Scriptures. Accepting fully the writings of the Old and New Testaments as the very Word of God, verbally inspired in all parts, our infallible and authoritative rule of faith and practice.
We believe there is one God eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of Christ, His virgin birth, His substitutionary atonement, His bodily resurrection, and His ascension into heaven there to be our intercessor.
We believe that the Holy Spirit convicts of sin, makes believers children of God through the New Birth, assuring them of heaven, and by His indwelling enables Christians to live a godly life.
