We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, supernaturally inspired, so that it is inerrant in the original manuscripts and preserved by God in its verbal, plenary inspiration, so that it is a Divinely authoritative standard for every age and every life.
We believe that the Godhead exists eternally in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – that these three are one God.
We believe in God as the absolute and sole Creator of the Universe and that creation was by Divine action, not through evolutionary process.
We believe that God, by His sovereign choice and out of love for men, sent Christ into the world to save sinners.
We believe that Jesus Christ in the flesh was both God and man; that He was born of a virgin and that He lived a sinless life, in which He taught and performed mighty works and wonders and signs exactly as revealed in the four gospels; that He was crucified, died as a penalty for our sins and was bodily raised from the dead on the third day. Later, He ascended to the Father’s right hand where He is the head of the church and intercedes for believers and from where He is coming again, personally, bodily and visibly to this earth to set up His millennial kingdom.
We believe that in His death, by His shed blood, the Lord Jesus Christ made a perfect atonement for sin, redeeming us from the curse of the law by becoming a sacrifice for sin. Men are therefore saved and justified on the simple and single ground of the shed blood.
