WE BELIEVE the Holy Scripture to be the very Word of God and that “all Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for correction, for reproof, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.” It is therefore our only infallible, inerrant, and authoritative rule of faith and practice.
2 Timothy 3:16
WE BELIEVE in one God, self-existent and self-revealing in three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Each has a particular ministry in God’s relation to His creation and people.
Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14
WE BELIEVE in the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Word and God’s only Son. He became a man by miracle of the virgin birth without any change to His divine person. He willingly gave Himself in substitutionary death upon the cross, and three days later He arose bodily from the grave. He ascended into heaven and, as our great High Priest, appears before God as our Advocate and Intercessor.
Philippians 2:5-11; John 1:1-5, 14
WE BELIEVE the Holy Spirit, who convicts the world concerning sin, righteousness, and judgment. He indwells, baptizes, regenerates, seals, and anoints all who become children of God through Christ. He also empowers, guides, teaches and fills believers who daily surrender to Him.
Genesis 1:2; John 16:7-14; Romans 8:11-17
