Statement on Scriptural Authority
WE BELIEVE that the Bible (both Old Testament and New Testament) is the divinely inspired and infallible Word of God, and that everything the Bible affirms to be true is true and everything the Bible affirms to be false is false, and that it is the supreme authority in all matters.
(Ex 24:4; Joshua 1:8; Ps 1:2; Matt 7:24; 2 Tim 3:15-17)
Statement on the Nature of God and Humankind
WE BELIEVE in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Humankind is created in His image, creation and providence are revelatory of Him (Gen 1:26; Jn 1:1; Jn 10:33; Phil 2:9-11). Though created in His image, we believe in the fall and consequent total moral depravity of humanity, resulting in our exceeding sinfulness and lost estate, and necessitating our regeneration by the Holy Spirit.
(Ps 143:2; Is 53:6; Rom 3:23; 5:7-8; 5:12,19; 1 Jn 1:8, 10)
Statement on Jesus Christ
WE BELIEVE that Jesus Christ is God manifested in the flesh, born of a virgin. He lived a sinless life, suffered and died on our behalf, arose bodily from the grave, ascended, and is coming again in power and glory.
(Jn 1:1, 14; Jn 10:30-33; Col 1:15, 2:9)
Statement on the Holy Spirit
WE BELIEVE that God the Holy Spirit convicts us of sin, brings us to faith in Jesus Christ, and conforms us to the image of Christ. God the Holy Spirit regenerates and empowers his people to continue God’s work, and for a life of holiness and service.
(Ez 36:26-27; Jn 3:6-8; Rom 8:2-6; Titus 3:5-6)
Statement on Christian Unity
WE BELIEVE in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
(Ps 133:1; 1 Cor 1:10; Eph 4:11-13; Col 3:13-14)
