We believe the Bible, consisting of 66 books - the Old (39) and the New (27) Testaments, to be the only inspired, eternal authoritative Word of God. (Matthew 5: 18; 2  Timothy 3: 16)

We believe that there is one true and living God, holy, eternally, existent in three persons; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; who is the creator and sustainer of all things and worthy of praise. (Jeremiah 10:10; Matthew 3:16, 17)

We believe in the deity of our Lord, Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal return in power and glory. (Matthew 1: 23; Luke: 24:51; 2 Corinthians 5: 21; Ephesians 1:20; 1 Thessalonians 4: 16)

We believe, given the sinfulness of mankind, the holiness of God and the nature of His Son (fully God and fully man), that Jesus Christ alone is the provided way and sacrifice for the forgiveness of sins and eternal life. (John 14: 6; Acts 4: 12; Romans 3: 23; 1 Timothy 2:5) 

We believe that, for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit (being born again) is absolutely essential and is received as a gift. (John 3:3-18; Titus 3:5, 6) 

We believe that, in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose filling, indwelling, power, teaching and illumination of Holy Scripture, the Christian is enabled to live a godly life in this present evil world. (John 14:26; Acts 1:8)

We believe in the resurrection and judgement of both the saved and the lost - they that are saved unto a resurrection of life and reward in Heaven, and they that are lost unto a resurrection of damnation. (John 5:28-29; 1 Thessalonians 4:14-17)

We believe in the spiritual oneness of all true believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 12:5; Ephesians 4:4-6)
