Values

God

There is one true God, the Creator of man and all things, eternally existing in three Persons in a threefold relationship, that of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God is the spiritual Father of only those who trust His Son, Jesus Christ, as Savior, and that only those saved through faith in Christ are spiritual brothers.

Bible book icon.

Scriptures

The Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are verbally inspired by God, are inerrant in the original writings, are the Word of God, and the final authority in faith and conduct.

Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and is God incarnate, the God-Man. The Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures as a substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who believe on Him are freely justified before God and stand before Him accepted in the character and merit of Jesus Christ.

Mankind & Sin

Man was created in the image of God; that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is separation from God; that Adam’s sin is imputed to the whole race of mankind; that all human beings are born with a sinful nature and are sinners before God in thought, word, and deed.

Resurrection icon.

Resurrection

In the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ, in His ascension into heaven, and that in His present glorified body He is the Head of the church, the Lord of the individual believer, the High Priest over the house of God, and the Advocate in the family of God.

Holy Spirit

All who by faith receive the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior are born again of the Holy Spirit and Word of God, receive the Holy Spirit and a new nature, and also are baptized by the Holy Spirit into the body of Christ.

Globe and hand icon.

Second Coming

In the personal, imminent, pretribulational, and premillennial second coming of Christ; first to receive His own to Himself, and later to set up His earthly kingdom and to reign over redeemed Israel and all nations; that is, to bring peace and blessing to the whole world.

Cross and hand icon.

After Death

We believe In the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust; in the everlasting blessedness of the saved and the everlasting punishment of the unsaved.
