The Word of God
We believe the Bible is God’s Word to us, our highest authority.
We believe there is One God who is perfect in all His attributes, one in essence yet eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God is the Creator and Sustainer of all things.
We believe man was created in holiness by God but became a sinner by nature and choice through the sin of the first man Adam. Man is totally depraved and incapable of satisfying God’s holy law, being dead in his trespasses and sins.
We believe God sent Jesus the Son into the world to live a sinless life, die a sinner’s death on the cross, and be resurrected from the dead three days later. Jesus satisfied God’s wrath against all sinners that believe the gospel, giving them forgiveness of sin and eternal life.
We believe the Church is the body of Jesus Christ, consisting of all regenerated persons throughout history. We believe visible expressions of this universal body are to be established, each of which is free from external authority and ultimately accountable to Jesus and His Word.
