We believe:

  1. That the Bible is the literal, divinely-inspired and complete Word of God
  2. In one God, creator of all things, eternally existing in three Persons.
  3. That Jesus Christ was and is true God and true man.
  4. That Jesus Christ was born of the virgin Mary by the action of God’s Holy Spirit.
  5. That God, through the ministry of the Holy Spirit, is active in the world today, convicting and regenerating man, to the glory of the Lord Jesus Christ.
  6. That the true church is comprised of all such persons who have been regenerated (born again).
  7. That man was created in the image of God, but fell into sin, and requires a redeemer.
  8. That the shed blood of Jesus Christ provides the only means of salvation.
  9. In the imminent second coming of Jesus Christ.
  10. In the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ and the bodily resurrection of those who die in Him.
  11. That water baptism and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances to be observed.
