the foundation we are built on

The Word of God: We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, fully inspired and without error in the original manuscripts, written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and that it has supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

The Trinity: We believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons that are equal to every divine perfection, and that they execute distinct but harmonious offices in the work of creation, providence and redemption.

God the Father: We believe in God, the Father, an infinite, personal spirit; perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love. We believe that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men, that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ: We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles and teachings. We believe in His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection and ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, and His personal, visible return to earth.

The Holy Spirit and the Ministry of the Believer: We believe in the Holy Spirit who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify and empower all who believe in Jesus Christ. We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Christ and that He is the giver of spiritual gifts to every Christian to be used as ministers for the edification of one another, to glorify God and to minister to the needs of the world.

Regeneration: We believe that all men are sinners by nature and by choice and are, therefore, under condemnation. We believe that those who repent of their sins and trust in Jesus Christ as personal Savior are regenerated and forever sealed by the Holy Spirit.

The Church: We believe in the universal church, a living spiritual body of which Christ is the head and all regenerated persons are members. We believe in the local church, consisting of a community of believers in Jesus Christ, baptized on a credible profession of faith, and associated for worship, instruction, witness and fellowship. We believe that this group is to be understood in the local context as "The Body of Christ," and that each member is a significant part of its primary function: giving the gospel of Jesus Christ to a lost world and encouraging one another on toward Christ likeness. 

Christian Conduct: We believe that a Believer should live for the glory of God before Believers and the world by the example and demonstration of a life of Christian liberty free from controlling sin as well as from legalistic observances, not being conformed to the pattern of the world (Galatians 5:1 and Romans 12:2); that he should exercise faithfully stewardship of time, gifts and material possessions, and that he should seek to realize for himself and others the full stature of maturity in Christ through his function as part of the Body of Christ. 

The Ordinances: We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ has committed two ordinances to the local church: Christian, or Believers' Baptism, and the Lord’s Supper. We believe that Christian baptism is the immersion of a Believer in water in the name of the triune God. We believe that the Lord's Supper was instituted by Jesus Christ for commemoration of His death. We believe that these two ordinances should be observed and administered until the return of the Lord Jesus Christ. 

Religious Liberty: We believe that every human being has direct relations with, and is therefore accountable to God, responsible to God alone in all matters of faith; that each church is independent and must be free from interference by any ecclesiastical or political authority; that therefore Church and State must be kept separate as having different functions, each fulfilling its duties free from the dictation or patronage of the other. 

Church Cooperation: We believe that local churches can best promote the cause of Jesus Christ by cooperating with one another, both within a denominational organization, and/or in a local setting. Such cooperation, whether regional, district or national, exists and functions by the will of the churches. Cooperation in a conference or local organization is voluntary and may be terminated at any time. 

The Last Things: We believe in the coming personal and visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ to earth and the establishment of His kingdom. We believe in the resurrection of the Body, the final judgment, the eternal joy of the righteous and the eternal suffering of the non-believer.
