We believe

1. We believe that the Bible is the verbal, plenary, inspired Word of God and is inerrant in its original writings.

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

3. We believe Jesus Christ is God, the second person of the Trinity who became man, so that He is fully God and fully man.

4. We believe that the Holy Spirit is God, the third person of the Trinity. He indwells believers from the moment of salvation and that He nevers forsakes believers. We believe that some of the Spirit's gifts (tongues, interpretation of tongues, miracles, healing) were temporary and limited to the Apostolic period.

5. We believe that man was created in the image of God without sin and yet chose to disobey God. As a result of man's sin he is a sinner who cannot save himself or earn merit before God.

6. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ's death on the cross paid the penalty for sin and that salvation is available to every man who will repent and place their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe that the salvation of a believer is eternally secure.

7. We believe that the universal church began on the day of Pentecost and will conclude at the rapture. The church also exists as a local group of believers who unite together to glorify and serve God.

8. We believe that Satan was originally created a holy and perfect angel, but that he rebelled against God. Since his fall he together with other fallen angels have since worked against God, God's people and God's purposes in the world.

9. We believe in a pretribulational return of Christ for His church and His subsequent premillenial return to earth to establish His kingdom.

10. We believe that the Christian has died to sin and has been raised with Christ to walk in newness of life and be victorious over sin.

This doctrinal statement is an abbreviated form of the doctrinal statement in the church constitution.
