We believe there is one God who lives forever in three persons: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19) We believe that the Bible is God's Word to the world, speaking to us with authority and without error. (2Timothy 3:16-17) We believe in the divinity of Jesus Christ the Son, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His death for us on the cross, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the Father, and His personal, physical return to rule the earth in power and love. (John 1:14-18; 1Thessalonians 4:16-18) We believe that all mankind are lost in sin and need to turn from it and trust personally in the Savior, Jesus Christ. All need to be born anew by the Holy Spirit's power into God's family. (Ephesians 2:1-10; John 3:5-7)
We believe the Holy Spirit lives in us as believers and brings love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, humility, and self-control into our lives. He works in and through us with His charismatic gifts. (Galatians 5:22-23; 1Corinthians 12:7-11) We believe in the resurrection of every person; to eternal life for the believer and eternal judgment for the lost. (Matthew 25:31-46) We believe in unity for all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ and seek community together: we want to become more like Him in every way, who is the head of His body, the Church. We are called to love Him and one another and are enabled to do this only as His life flows through us. (1 Corinthians 12:12-13; Matthew 22:37-40) We believe in the sacraments of Water Baptism and the Lord's Supper. We believe in divine healing and health for the whole person, spirit, mind, body and soul. We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Ghost to fill us with boldness and power to be witnesses. We believe the Scriptures teach that marriage is the covenanting together of one man and one woman in a union to the exclusion of all others. This union is established by an authorized ceremony under God. Marriage is a unique reflection of God’s faithful love for all humankind. The relationship of husband and wife, as family, reflects the covenanting self-giving love between Christ and His Bride, the Church. The pledge of mutual faithfulness is not tentative or conditional. The permanent nature of the marriage bond gives security and promotes the development of a trusting relationship. The Church has a responsibility to care for, nurture and prayerfully support the marriage relationship and the children of the union. (Genesis 1:27; Genesis 2:18; Genesis 2:24; 1 Corinthians 7:4-5; Ephesians 5:25)
