We believe the Bible to be the only inspired, infallible Word of God. (2 Peter 1:21; 2 Timothy 3:16-17)
We believe in one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Deut. 6:4; 2 Cor. 13:14; Rev. 4:11; Heb. 1:3; 1 Cor. 8:6; John 1:1-3)
We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His atoning death, His bodily resurrection, and in His ascension to the right hand of the Father.  We acknowledge the Lordship of Jesus Christ over all things in Heaven and on earth and under the earth. (Philippians 2:9-10; 1 Timothy 3:16)
We believe that the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit empowers us for a life that produces fruit and for the work of the ministry. We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit and the manifestations of the gifts, which are distributed to each individual by the Holy Spirit as He wills, for the common good of the body of Christ and to glorify Jesus. (1 Cor. 12:4; Eph. 4:11; Rom. 12:4-8; 1 Pet 4:10-11)
We believe in the personal and imminent return of our Lord Jesus Christ and that this has a vital bearing on the personal life and service of the believer. (Mark 13:32; 1 Thes. 4:13-18; John 14:3; 1 Cor. 15; Rev. 1:7)
We believe that man fell by transgression from the state of righteousness and holiness in which he is held as slave until he is delivered by the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ. (Romans 5:12-21)
We believe that the shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe, and only such as receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior are born of the Holy Spirit and thus become children of God. (Heb. 9:22; Rom. 10:9-10, 13)
We believe that sanctification is a process which is realized in the believer by recognizing his identification with Christ in His death and resurrection, by faith reckoning daily upon the fact of that union with Christ, and by offering every faculty continually to the ruling power of the Holy Spirit which produces holiness of heart and life. (Rom. 6:1-11, 13; 8:1-2, 13; Gal. 2:20; Phil. 2:12-13; 1 Peter 1:5)
We believe that the true Church is composed of all such persons who are regenerated by the Holy Spirit through saving faith in Jesus Christ, are united together in the body of Christ of which He is Lord and Head, and are commissioned for the God-given task of proclaiming the gospel to every person. (Acts 2:41-42; Rom. 12:5; Eph. 1:22-23; 5:23-24; 1Cor. 12:12-14; 2Cor. 11:2; Acts 14:27)
We believe in the dedication of little children as observed in Scriptures. (I Samuel 1:28)
We believe in water baptism by immersion which identifies us with the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ and is an outward expression of an inward surrender to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. (Rom. 6:1-6; Col. 2:11-13)
We believe in the practice of observing the Lord’s supper regularly as practiced in the Scriptures and that it should be open to all who have made Jesus Christ their Lord and Savior. (Luke 22:19-20; 1Cor. 11:23-24)
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost – they that are saved unto the resurrection of eternal life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of eternal punishment. (John 5:28-29; Rev. 20:15)
