We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, supernaturally inspired and inerrant in the original manuscripts and are divinely respected as the standard for every age and every life. (II Timothy 3:16)

We believe that the Godhead exists eternally in three persons; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and that these three are one God. God is the absolute and sole creator of the universe and that creation was by divine command. We believe that God, by His sovereign choice and out of love for men, sent Christ into the world to save sinners. (Genesis 1; John 17:3; Matthew 28:19-20)

We believe that Jesus Christ in the flesh was both God and man. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, was crucified, died as a penalty for our sins, and was raised from the dead on the third day. Later, He ascended to the Father’s right hand where He is the head of the church and intercedes for believers, and from whence He is coming again personally, bodily, and visibly to this earth to set up His millennial kingdom. (Romans 5:8; 10:9-10)

We believe that in His death and by His shed blood, the Lord Jesus Christ made a perfect atonement for sin and redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us. Men are saved and justified on this simple and single foundation. (Galatians 3:13)

We hold the state of marriage to be an expression of a Biblical standard and the union between a man and a woman. Violation of this sacred trust include areas such as fornication, adultery, co-habitation, homosexuality and all uncleanness or covetousness. (Genesis 1:27; 2:24, Ephesians 5:3)

We believe that it is the goal of every Christian to become a disciple of Christ by growing toward spiritual maturity through the knowledge of and obedience to the Word of God and submission to the Holy Spirit. Believers must seek the fullness of the Spirit since it is His influence that will bring about victorious Christian living on earth. (John 8:31-31; Matthew 6:33)

We believe that every true Christian is to be a dynamic part of a local church since this is God’s primary context for spiritual development and community impact. We believe that the two ordinances of the church are baptism (immersion) and the Lord’s Supper; that the local church is an independent and self-governing body responsible alone to Christ who is its Savior and Lord. (I Timothy 3:15, Matthew 28:18-20, I Corinthians 11:23-26)

We believe in the Sovereignty rule, reign and authority of God in the life of believers. We believe that the Kingdom of God is within us and is manifested on earth as we faithfully obey Christ and His teaching. We believe in unity in the essentials, understanding in the non-essentials, and love in all things. (Psalm 133.1)
