We believe in:

  • The Bible as the inspired and infallible Word of God  (2 Timothy 3:15-16; 2 Peter 1:21)
  • One God, eternally existent in three persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  (Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14)
  • The creation, test, and fall of mankind as recorded in Genesis 1, and his total spiritual depravity and inability to attain divine righteousness on his own.  (Romans 5:12-18)
  • The Lord Jesus Christ, the Savior of mankind, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, very God and very man.  (Luke 1:26-35; John 1:18; Isaiah 9:6)
