We believe the Scriptures are inspired by God and declare His design and plan for all mankind. (2 Timothy 3:15-171 Thessalonians 2:132 Peter 1:21)

We believe there is only one true God, revealed in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit -- commonly known as the Trinity. (Deuteronomy 6:4, Isaiah 43:10-11Matthew 28:19, Luke 3:22)

We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ. As God's son, Jesus was both human and divine. (Matthew 1:23Hebrews 7:23Acts 2:221 Corinthians 15:3, Matthew 28:6Acts 1:9)

We believe man willingly fell to sin -- though originally good -- ushering evil and death, both physical and spiritual, into the world. (Genesis 1:26-27, Genesis 2:17, Genesis 3:6, Romans 5:12-19)

We believe every person can have restored fellowship with God through salvation, that is, trusting Christ, through faith and repentance, to be our personal Savior. (Luke 24:47, Romans 8:16, Titus 2:12)

We believe and practice two ordinances: (1) Water Baptism by immersion after repenting of one's sins and receiving Christ's gift of salvation, and (2) Holy Communion as a symbolic remembrance of Christ's suffering and death for our salvation. (Matthew 28:19, 2 Peter 1:4, 1 Corinthians 11:26)

We believe the baptism in the Holy Spirit is a special experience following salvation that empowers believers for witnessing and effective service, just as it did in New Testament times. (Luke 24:49, Acts 8:12-17, John 7:37-39, Hebrews 12:28, Acts 2:42, Mark 16:20)

We believe the initial physical evidence of the baptism in the Holy Spirit is 'speaking in tongues,' as experienced on the Day of Pentecost and referenced throughout Acts of the Epistles. (Acts 2:4, 1 Corinthians 12:4-10, 1 Corinthians 12:28)

We believe sanctification initially occurs at salvation and is not only a declaration that a believer is holy, but also a progressive lifelong process of separating from evil as believers continually draw closer to God and become more Christlike. (Romans 12:1-2, Hebrews 12:14, 1 Peter 1:15-16, Philippians 2:12-13)

We believe the church has a mission to seek and save all who are lost in sin. We believe 'the Church' is the Body of Christ and consists of the people who, throughout time, have accepted God's offer of redemption -- regardless of religious denomination -- through the sacrificial death of His son Jesus Christ. (Ephesians 1:22-23, Acts 1:8, 1 Corinthians 12:13, Ephesians 4:11-16, Psalms 112:9, Mark 16:15-20,  1 Corinthians 2:10-16, Galatians 5:22-26)

We believe a divinely called and Scripturally ordained leadership ministry serves the church. The Bible teaches that each of us under leadership must commit ourselves to reach others for Christ, to worship Him with other believers, to build up or edify the body of believers -- the Church -- and to meet human need with ministries of love and compassion. (Mark 16:15-20, John 4:23-24, Ephesians 4:11-16, Psalms 112:9)

We believe divine healing of the sick is a privilege for Christians today and is provided for in Christ's atonement, His sacrificial death on the cross for our sins. (Isaiah 53:4-5, Matthew 8:16-17, James 5:14-16)

We believe in the Blessed Hope, when Jesus raptures His church prior to His return to Earth -- the second coming. At this future moment in time all believers who have died will rise from their graves and will meet with the Lord in the air, and Christians who are alive will be caught up with them, to be with the Lord forever. (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, Romans 8:23, Titus 2:13, 1 Corinthians 15:51-52)

We believe in the millennial reign of Christ when Jesus returns with His saints at His second coming and begins His rule over earth for 1,000 years. This millennial reign will bring the salvation of national Israel and the establishment of universal peace. (Zechariah 14:5, Ezekiel 37:21-22, Isaiah 11:6-9)

We believe a final judgment will take place for those who have rejected Christ. They will be judged for their sin and consigned to eternal punishment in a punishing lake of fire. (Matthew 25:46, Mark 9:43-48, Revelation 19:20, Revelation 20:11-15, Revelation 21:8)

We believe and look forward to the perfect New Heaven and New Earth that Christ is preparing for all people, of all time, who have accepted Him. We will live and dwell with Him there forever following His millennial reign on Earth. 'And so shall we forever be with the Lord!' (2 Peter 3:13, Revelation 21, Revelation 22)
