We affirm and desire to orient our lives on these convictions because we believe they will shape our core, as God transforms our lives and community for His glory!
GOD: There is only one true God, the Maker, Preserver, and Ruler of all things, having in and of Himself all perfections and being infinite in them all. Every person and creature owe Him and Him alone the highest love, reverence, and obedience (Deut. 6:4, Ps. 145:3, Jn. 1:3, 1 Cor. 8:4-6, 2 Cor. 1:3-14, 1 Tim. 1:17).
THE TRINITY: Scriptures reveal that the one true God exists in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Each are equal in power and Deity; by Him all things were created, are upheld and governed (Matt. 3:16-17, 28:19, 2 Cor. 13:14).
THE BIBLE: We believe in the Holy Bible, the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired Word of God, without error in the original autographs. The Holy Bible is the supreme rule of faith and truth (2 Tim. 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:20-21)
JESUS CHRIST: We believe in the Deity of Jesus Christ, His miraculous birth, His sinless life, His teaching, His miracles, His substitutionary and atoning death on the cross for our sins. We believe in His literal resurrection and ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His literal return to this earth to rule in power and glory. He is the only Mediator between God and man, the Prophet, Priest, and is Sovereign over all the universe (Is. 53:10-12, Jn. 1:1;14, Lk. 1:26-38, Acts 1:9-11, Rom. 3:21-26, 8:34, 1 Cor. 15:3-4, 2 Cor. 5:21, 1 Tim. 2:5, Heb. 1:1-3, 7:25).
SIN NATURE: We believe that all after Adam are born sinners by nature, under eternal condemnation. The Holy Spirit convicts man and regenerates all who repent of their sins, confessing Jesus as Lord and believing in His resurrection (Gen. 1:26-27, 3:1-7, 6:5, 8:21, Ps. 51:5, Rom. 3:9-18, 5:12-19, 7:7-28, 8:5-8. Eph. 2:1-3).
