We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man without ceasing to be God, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit, and born of the Virgin Mary, in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful man (John 1:1, 2, 14; Luke 1:35).
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption through His death and bodily resurrection from the dead (Romans 3:24; Ephesians 1:7). We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ ascended into heaven and is now exalted at the right hand of God as our High Priest (Acts 1:9, 10; Hebrews 7:25, 9:24; 1 John 2:1-2).
We believe that salvation is the gift of God brought to man by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, who has all authority to forgive our sins (Ephesians 1:7; John 1:12; 1 Peter 1:18-19).
We believe that God is sovereign in the giving of spiritual gifts to all believers to be developed and used to glorify His name, His sacrifice, and His coming reign. We believe it is the privilege and responsibility of every believer to minister according to the gift(s) and grace of God that is given to him (1 Corinthians 12:7, 11, 13; John 15:7; Romans 12:1-8; 1 Corinthians 13).
We believe that water baptism proclaims Christ’s death and resurrection and serves as a public notice to the world of one’s new life in Christ (1 Corinthians 15:1-4; Matthew 10:32; Mark 16:16; Romans 6:3-7, 10, 11).
We believe the Church is the Body of Christ. We believe glory is given to God when believers of all denominations peacefully unite, free of any external authority and control, for His purpose (Ephesians 1:22, 23; 2 Corinthians 11:2; Acts 13:1-4, 15:19-31, 20:28; 1 Peter 5:1-4; Matthew 28:19, 20; Acts 2:41, 42).
We believe that Christians are called to be witnesses of Christ’s unfailing love. This responsibility embodies loving, serving, teaching, and using unique personal and spiritual gifts to spread the Gospel around the world (Mark 16:15; Matthew 28:19-20; Isaiah 6:8; Colossians 4:2-6).
