Our Biblical Convictions
- We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God. (Isaiah 55:9-11; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Matthew 5:18; John 16:12-13)
- We believe that there is one true God revealed to us in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Matthew 11:26-28)
- We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His victorious and powerful bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. And that the only hope for man’s eternal salvation is Jesus the Messiah (Luke 1:35; Romans 3:24; 1 Peter 2:24; Ephesians 1:7; John 14:5-7)
- We believe in both the infinite value and deep brokenness of every human being. Without Jesus and the regenerate work of the Holy Spirit we are unable to do anything that honors God. We are saved by God’s grace alone, live by faith in Jesus and strive to walk by the Holy Spirit in a manner worthy of God’s love. (Genesis 1:26-27; Romans 3:22-23, 5:12; Ephesians 3:1-3, 12)
- We believe in the resurrection of all human beings on the Last Day; those in Christ to the resurrection of life and those outside of Christ to the resurrection of emptiness and death.
- We believe in the spiritual unity of all who believe in their hearts and confess with their mouths Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
