We Believe

The Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God and inerrant in the original writings.


That there is one God, eternally existent in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Ghost.


In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless blood, 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 His personal return in power and glory.


That the lost and sinful man must be saved, and that man's only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.


In the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life.


In the resurrection of both the saved and the unsaved, they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are unsaved unto the resurrection of damnation.


In the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
