THE BIBLE. We believe the Bible as the verbally inspired Word of God, wholly without error in the original writings, our all-sufficient rule of faith and practice. (2 Tim 3:16; 2 Pet 1:21)* 


GOD. We believe in one God eternally existing in three persons—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit—and that these three are equal in every divine perfection. (Deut 6:4; Matt 28:19) 


JESUS CHRIST. We believe that the eternal Son of God became incarnate in the Lord Jesus Christ, being conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, and is true God and true man; that He lived a sinless life, gave Himself in death as a perfect substitutionary sacrifice for the sins of all men, arose bodily from the grave, and ascended into heaven. (John 1:1, 14, 18; 1 Cor 15:3-4) 


THE HOLY SPIRIT. We believe that the Holy Spirit regenerates, baptizes, indwells, and seals all believers in Christ immediately upon salvation; and that He empowers for service those who are yielded to Him. (John 3:6; 1 Cor 6:19; 1 Cor 12:13; Eph 4:30; 5:18) 


SPIRITUAL GIFTS. We believe that God has given to all believers a spiritual gift (or gifts); that speaking in tongues is not a necessary sign for the baptism or filling of the Holy Spirit; and that ultimate deliverance of the body from sickness or death awaits the consummation of our salvation in the resurrection. (1 Cor 12:11; 13:8; Eph 4:11-12)


MAN. We believe that mankind was originally created in the image and likeness of God; that in Adam he fell through sin and thereby incurred spiritual death which is eternal separation from God; so that now all men are sinners, hopelessly sinful in themselves, apart from the grace of God. (Gen 1:27; Rom 3:23; 5:12) 


SALVATION. We believe that salvation is received by grace through faith alone in the Lord Jesus Christ, on the ground of His shed blood and altogether apart from works; and that all who believe in Christ are born again by the Holy Spirit and thereby become the children of God, possessing every spiritual blessing. (John 1:12; Eph 2:8-9; Titus 3:5) 


ETERNAL SECURITY. We believe that all who are truly born again are assured of salvation and will, by the grace of God, persevere and be kept saved forever. (John 10:27-29; Rom 8:29; 1 John 5:13) 


SANCTIFICATION. We believe that, in Christ, every believer secures a holy standing before God; that in experience the believer progressively grows in grace and into Christlikeness by the power of the Holy Spirit; and that the believer will be fully perfected at the appearing of Christ, such that his state will conform to his standing. (John 17:17; Eph 5:25-27; Heb 10:10)


CHRISTIAN LIFE AND MISSION. We believe that every believer is called to a holy life of service and testimony in the power of the Holy Spirit, which service includes the proclamation of the Gospel to the whole world; and that there is promised reward in heaven for faithfulness to such service. (Matt 28: 18-19; John 12:25-26; 1 Pet 1:15-16) 

SEPARATION. We believe that every believer should separate from worldly and sinful practices and associations; and that Bible-believing churches should separate themselves entirely from worldliness and religious apostasy. (Rom 12:1-2; 2 Cor 6:14; 7:1; 2 John 9- 11) 


THE CHURCH. We believe that the Church is composed of all true believers baptized by the Holy Spirit into one body that is Christ’s; and that the local church is an assembly of born-again, immersed believers who regularly gather for the purposes of worship, fellowship, administration of the ordinances, edification, discipline, and effective promotion of the work of Christ throughout the world. (Acts 2:41-42; Eph 1:22; Heb 10:24-25) 


ORDINANCES. We believe that believer’s baptism and the Lord’s Supper are the only ordinances of the church. We further believe in immersion as the mode of baptism, and in the memorial significance of the Lord’s Supper. (1 Cor 11:23-26)
