1.  Bible. We believe that the Bible is the Word of God; without error as originally written.  Its content has been preserved by Him, and is the final authority in all matters of doctrine and faith-above all human authority. SCRIPTURAL SUPPORT

2.  God.  We believe there is no God but one:  the infinite Designer, Creator, and Sustainer of all existence in this or any universe-from eternity past to eternity future.  Godís nature is triune-three perfect and eternal persons; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit-who are one, in being as well as in purpose.
SCRIPTURAL SUPPORT

3.  Law.  We believe God is the source of all moral and natural law.  The highest and all-encompassing law, given to man, is to love the one true God above all else.
SCRIPTURAL SUPPORT

4.  Man.  We believe that man is a created, finite being; designed in the image of God, with the ability to reason, make choices, and have relationships.  Man was created for the purpose of bringing glory to God, but since the day man first rebelled against Godís law, all mankind has been sinful by nature, and has earned the penalty of death and eternal separation from God.
SCRIPTURAL SUPPORT

5.  Jesus.  We believe that God, the Son, entered the world as a man to die on the cross on our behalf; a sinless sacrifice in full payment of all our sin-both past and future-satisfying the demand of Godís perfect justice.  Jesus rose from the grave; authenticating His divine identity, as our living Prophet, Priest, and King.
SCRIPTURAL SUPPORT

6.  Forgiveness.  Based upon the penalty paid at the cross, we believe that the forgiveness of sins is granted by grace alone to those who will receive it by faith alone.   It must be received as an utterly undeserved gift or it cannot be received at all; because all the credit and glory are Christís alone.
SCRIPTURAL SUPPORT

7.  Repentance. We turn (repent) from self-reliance for our salvation, to trusting alone in the completed work of Jesus upon the cross to purchase the perfect pardon of all our sin, forever.
SCRIPTURAL SUPPORT

8.  Works. We believe in doing good works in grateful response to our pardon, not to cause it.  From our faith, acts of response will flow such as: obedience, compassion, baptism, communion, prayer, etc.
SCRIPTURAL SUPPORT

9. Inheritance. As believers, we are Christís true church, and have consequently received many other spiritual blessings, including: reconciliation and friendship with a Holy God, the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, adoption as children of God into His family, and eternal life now and in His kingdom.
SCRIPTURAL SUPPORT

10. Deception. We also acknowledge the existence of the great counterfeiter of prophecy, miracles, emotions, and feelings: Satan.  Therefore, we take seriously Godís command to test all these things according to scripture.

Evangelical Beliefs
Our desire for others is that they might be saved from the penalty and power of their sins, and, as a result, enjoy a personal and joyful relationship with their Creator forever.  This happens when a person places their trust only and completely in the one true God for the free gift of a full and legal pardon-based upon the death of Jesus on the cross as their substitute.
