The Bible is Godís inspired, infallible, and inerrant Word. Itís the ultimate source for knowledge about God, as well as the definitive guide for our lives.
We affirm the existence of a triune God or one God in three distinct persons- the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.This God is self-existent, eternal, unchanging, omnipotent, omnipresent, holy, righteous, and loving.
Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, the Second Person of the Trinity, who took upon Himself human flesh through the miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit in the womb of the Virgin Mary. He who is true God became true man, uniting two natures in one person forever. Christ lived a perfect, sinless life, died on the cross as an atoning sacrifice for our sins, rose bodily from the dead, and ascended into Heaven where He now serves as our High Priest, our only Mediator. He will return bodily and visibly to the earth as King of Kings and will judge every human who has ever lived.
The Holy Spirit is the eternal Third Person of the Triune God, the Regenerator and Sanctifier of the redeemed, the Bestower of spiritual fruit and gifts, and the abiding Advocate who empowers believers for godly living and service. The believer is indwelt by the Holy Spirit at the moment of salvation.
In Adam human beings were created in the image of God. But because of his sin or transgression, man has lost his fellowship with God. The desperate need of humanity is forgiveness of sins and consequently the restoration of the relationship with God. Humans are totally unable to atone for and restore themselves.
Jesusí death on the cross provided a penal substitutionary atonement for the sins of humanity. In salvation we are rescued from Godís wrath by His unmerited grace alone, through faith alone, on account of Christ alone. Every person that is truly saved is eternally secure in the Lord Jesus Christ and will spend eternity in heaven. Faith in Christ is the only means by which mankind can escape eternal damnation and judgment.
The church is Godís ordained institution headed by Christ. The church is composed of all believers, and is organized for worship, for fellowship, for the administration of the sacraments, for spiritual growth and support, and for evangelizing the world.
