The Triune God
We believe in the triune God who reveals himself as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God is holy, eternal, and sovereign.
We believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who is eternally one with the Father. He became a man, came to Earth, and was born of the Virgin Mary. He died for our sins, but arose from the dead and lives in heaven to intercede for us.
We believe in the Holy Spirit who is present and active in the church. He convicts the world of sin, gives life to those who repent and believe, sanctifies believers, and guides us to the truth of Jesus Christ.
We believe that the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments were fully inspired by God and reveal everything we need to know to be saved. The Bible is the basis for everything we hold essential to the Christian faith.
We believe that sin exists in two forms. Original sin is the inclination towards evil with which we were all born as a part of a sinful race. Personal sins are acts of willful disobedience when we know God's law but violate it anyway, which results in guilt or condemnation. The problem of guilt is solved by forgiveness. The problem of the sinful nature is solved by a cleansing act of the Holy Spirit in the human heart.
We believe that Jesus suffered and died on the cross to pay the price for our redemption. There is no other ground for salvation apart from faith in what Christ did for us. His sacrifice is sufficient for every person who repents and believes in Him.
We believe that all humans have the power to choose between right and wrong, and therefore are morally responsible before God. Since man never loses free will, is possible to depart from God and be lost even after one has been saved. We also believe that the grace of God, through Jesus Christ, is freely bestowed upon all people, enabling all who will turn from sin to righteousness.
We believe that the act of repentance is a part of our salvation. Repentance is being truly sorry for the sins a person has committed, along with a strong resolve to avoid all sin in the future. It is a change of heart and mind towards sin.
We believe that entire sanctification is an act of God, following salvation, by which believers are made free from original sin and brought into a state of entire devotion to God.
We believe in the Church, the community of believers, that confesses Jesus Christ as Lord. The mission of the Church in the world is to continue the redemptive work of Christ.
We believe that baptism, a public ceremony which symbolizes a change that has taken place in the heart of a believer, is a sacrament. It was commanded by Christ to be a declaration of our faith in Him. Baptism may be administered by sprinkling, pouring, or immersion, according to the choice of the applicant.
The Lord's Supper
We believe that the Communion Supper instituted by Jesus Christ is essentially a New Testament sacrament, declaring His sacrificial death by which we have life and salvation. Taking the sacrament is a reminder that we receive Christ's living presence.
We believe that God still heals people miraculously and encourage prayer for the sick. We also believe that part of God's healing comes through the knowledge He has provided in medical science.
Second Coming of Christ
We believe that Jesus Christ will return to Earth someday to take His Church to live with Him forever in heaven.
Resurrection, Judgement, and Destiny
We believe in the resurrection of the dead. We believe in the future judgement in which every person shall appear before God to be judged according to his or her deeds in this life. We believe that glorious and everlasting life is assured to all who believe in and obediently follow Jesus Christ.
