What We Believe
The Word Of God
(John 17:17; Romans 15:4; 2Tim 3:16; 2Pet 1:19-21)
We believe that the Bible is the Word of God fully and verbally inspired by the Holy Spirit. We believe that the Bible in its original manuscripts is free from all falsehood or mistake and so is entirely true and trustworthy in all its assertions on all matters of natural and theological fact and that it has supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
(Matt 28:19; John 1:1-4; 1John 5:7)
We believe that there in one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons; that these are equal in every divine perfection, and that they execute distinct but harmonious offices in the work of creation, providence and redemption.
God the Father
(John 3:16,17; 4:24; 17:5)
We believe in God, the Father, an infinite personal spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love. We believe that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men, that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.
(Isaiah 7:14; John 1:14; Philippians 2:5-11; Hebrews 1:2,3; 1John 1:7)
We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles and teachings. We believe in His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection and ascension to heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, and personal visible return to earth.
The Holy Spirit
(John 14:26; John 16:7-15; Romans 8:14-17; Ephesians 1:13-14)
We believe in the Holy Spirit who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify and empower all who believe in Jesus Christ. We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Christ, and that He is abiding helper, teacher and guide.
(Psalm 91:11-13; Luke 1:26-38; Revelation 12:7-12)
We believe that angels are a distinct order of created spiritual beings; that they can appear in human form; that good angels minister to human beings and serve God as special messengers; that Satan, a fallen angel, and his evil angels whom he leads, exercise great but limited power in the world, and will suffer final defeat at the hands of the Lord Jesus Christ.
