Our Beliefs

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible and authoritative Word of God, and the only rule of faith and practice. We believe there to be one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. 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 bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His pending personal return in power and glory.

We believe that we are all sinners whose salvation can only be found through faith in Jesus Christ. This salvation is based upon the sovereign Grace of God, was purchased by Christ on the cross, and is received through faith, apart from any human merit, works or rituals. We believe salvation results in righteous living, good works, and proper social concern.

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit to bring glory to the Father and honor to the Son. Through His indwelling, the Christian is further enabled to live a godly life. Through His gifting, the Christian is empowered to serve. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in Christ and are convinced of the essential call of Christ to love and work with each other for the advancement of His kingdom and not our own. We believe obedience to the Great Commission of Jesus Christ necessitates a commitment to making disciples of all others; yet not by force or coercion.

We believe in the sanctity of all human life and that life begins at conception. We believe that God has established marriage as a lifelong, exclusive relationship between one man and one woman and that all intimate sexual activity should be conducted within the marriage relationship. We believe that God created the human race male and female and each has its special gifting and purpose within His plan.
