Our Core Beliefs

We uphold these ten core beliefs as essential to the Christian faith.

 

We Believe
that the Bible is the verbally inspired Word of God and without mistakes as originally written. It is the complete revelation of His will for salvation and the only unfailing rule of faith and practice for the Christian life.

We Believe
in one God, Creator of all things, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and that these three are co-eternal and of equal dignity and power.

We Believe
in the deity of Jesus Christ: His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit; His virgin birth; His sinless life; His substitutionary death on the cross; His Bodily resurrection; His ascension to the right hand of the Father; and His personal, imminent return.

We Believe
that man was created by and for God: that by man's disobeying God: every person incurred spiritual death, which is separation from God; and physical death as a consequence: and that all people are sinners by nature and practice.

We Believe
The Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins and that all who believe in Him are declared righteous because of His sacrificial death and are, therefore, in the right relationship with God.

We Believe
that Jesus Christ, and He alone is the one and only way to Salvation and eternity with God in heaven.

We Believe
in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit indwelling all believers and thus enabling and empowering the life and ministry of the believer.

We Believe
in the bodily resurrection of everyone who has lived, the everlasting blessedness of those in right relationship with God, and the everlasting punishment of those who have rejected God's forgiveness in His Son.

We Believe
in the pre-tribulational, pre-millenist and imminent return of the Lord Jesus Christ. The "rapture" of the saints followed by seven years of tribulation that will usher in the thousand year reign of Christ and after that the New Heaven and New Earth for eternity.

We Believe
that God created marriage and that the only legitimate marriage is the joining of one man and one woman.
