Doctrinal Statement

u We believe the Bible to be the inspired Word of God, inerrant in the original writings, and the supreme authority in matters of faith and practice.

u We believe in one God who exists in the triune persons of Father, Son (Jesus Christ), and Holy Spirit.

u We believe that the human race was created innocent and pure but fell from this condition through the disobedience of Adam, the first man. We believe therefore, that all people because they are descendants of Adam are by nature spiritually dead and in need of redemption.

u We believe that through the death of Jesus Christ on the cross, God provides salvation for all who repent of their sins and turn to Him through faith in Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord.

u We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells all who profess saving faith in Jesus Christ, and that He enables them to follow Godís commands and live a life of purity and love.

u We believe in the personal, physical return of Jesus Christ, the bodily resurrection of Christians to eternal life in Godís presence, and in the bodily resurrection of non-Christians to judgment and eternal death in the Lake of Fire.

u We believe that water baptism and the Lordís supper are to be observed by all Christians during the present age. They are not, however, the means of salvation.
