There is one and only one living and true God who exists in three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, each possessing all the attributes of deity.

Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, who was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life on earth, voluntarily paid the debt of our sin by dying as our substitute on the cross; who rose from the dead and now serves as the only mediator between man and God and who will return bodily to the earth to consummate history.

+ + +


The Holy Spirit is a divine person, equal with the Father and the Son; that He convicts of sin, of righteousness and judgment; that He bears witness to the truth of the gospel; that He is the Agent of the new birth; and that He seals, guides, teaches, witnesses, sanctifies and helps the believer.

+ + +


God created mankind in innocence and for fellowship with Him but that he voluntarily fell from innocence and broke fellowship with God because of his sin, bringing us all under the judgment of God.

+ + +


Salvation is by grace through faith alone—apart from human effort—in the person and completed work of Jesus Christ.

+ + +


All who are truly born again are kept by God the Father for Jesus Christ.

Those who have been justified through faith in Jesus Christ are declared righteous and will dwell eternally in heaven with God while all those that continue in unbelief are wicked in God’s sight and will perish in the eternal judgment of hell.

+ + +


The return of Jesus Christ will initiate a one thousand-year reign on this earth, the beginning of his eternal kingdom.
