What We Believe

New Testament Principles

We believe in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament as inspired by God and inerrant in the original writings and that they are the supreme and final authority in faith and life.

We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe that Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin and is true God and true man, sinless and perfect.

We believe that man was created in the image of God; that man sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death which is separation from God; and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature and are sinners in thought, word, and deed.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins, according to the Scriptures, as the representative and substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who believe in Him are justified by virtue of His shed blood.

We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into heaven and His enthronement at the right hand of God the Father where He ministers for us as High Priest, Advocate, and Head of the Church.

We believe in that “blessed hope”—the personal and victorious return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

We believe that all who receive the Lord Jesus Christ by repentance and faith are born again of the Holy Spirit and become children of God.

We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the eternal blessedness of the saved and the eternal punishment of the lost.
