We believe the Bible (Old & New Testaments) is the inerrant, verbally inspired Word of God. It is our sole authority for faith and practice.
We believe in the One and Only True God, who exists eternally in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The Members of the Trinity are co-eternal and co-equal in Their nature and attributes.
We believe in the full deity and true humanity of Jesus Christ (He is God incarnate), his virgin birth, His sinless life, His atoning death, His literal bodily resurrection, His present heavenly intercession for us, and His personal, visible return.
We believe in the personality and and deity of the Holy Spirit, who convicts people of sin, spiritually regenerates those who believe, and personally indwells all who trust in Christ. We believe salvation is a free gift from God, given by divine grace, received by faith in God's Son, and is apart from human merit or effort.
"...the preaching of the cross...is the power of God"
