What the Bible Tells Us
God – A Triune Lord
There is one God, who exists eternally in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. And these three persons are the same in substance, equal in power and glory. God is infinite and eternal in His being, wisdom, power, justice, goodness and truth.
Humanity – Imagio Dei
We believe that all people, being created in the image of God, possess God-given honor, as they were made to reflect God’s character and calling in all of life. And though created innocent, man fell be rebelling against a Holy and Wise God. We believe then that all people are born as sinners, separated from God, totally depraved and totally unable to save themselves from God’s displeasure, except by his mercy.
Salvation – A Legacy of Love
We believe that salvation is by God alone as that He sovereignly and mercifully chooses those he will save. We believe his choice is based on his grace, not on any human individual merit, or foreseen faith. We believe that salvation is through Christ alone by grace alone through faith alone.
Concerning Jesus – A Messiah for Sinful Men
We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, who through his perfect life and sacrificial death atoned for the sins of all who would trust in Him, alone, for salvation. Jesus, our Redeemer, was raised again for our justification, and ascended into the heavens, where He sits as Priest at the right hand of the Father Almighty, continually making intercession for His people, and governing as King, the whole world as head over all things for his church. We believe that Jesus will return, bodily and visibly, to judge all mankind, to receive his people to himself, and to renew all things.
Concerning the Holy Spirit – Our Helper and Teacher
We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells God’s people and gives them the strength and wisdom to trust Christ and follow him. We believe that the Holy Spirit refreshes, remakes, restores, reforms, and revives. The Holy Spirit moves us to trust and leads us.
