We believe in…
The only true God, the almighty Creator of all things,1
existing eternally in three persons
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
The unique divine inspiration,2
and authority of the Bible.
The dignity and brokenness of all people3
created in God’s image to live in love and holiness,
but alienated from God and each other because of our sin and guilt,
and justly subject to God’s wrath.
Jesus Christ, fully human and fully divine4
who lived a perfect life,
who took upon Himself the judgment due sinners on the cross,
who was bodily raised from the dead,
and ascended as Savior and Lord.
which is a free gift given immediately and permanently
to all who, wholly apart from any works,
put their faith in Jesus Christ alone.
The Holy Spirit6
who indwells each believer at the moment of faith
in order to glorify Christ by changing and using us
for the building up of the church.
which includes all true believers in Christ,
is distinct from Israel,
is organized locally,
and overseen by elders.
anticipating the coming of Christ for His church at any moment,
followed by the examination of believers for the purpose of rewards,
the physical return of Christ to establish His kingdom on earth,
the final judgment of unbelievers,
and the creation of a new heaven and new earth
all to the eternal glory of God.
