We believe the Bible (containing the 66 books of the Old and New Testament) is the word of God, fully inspired by Him through the Holy Spirit in the original manuscripts Since God's word is both true and everlasting, it is our supreme authority for faith and conduct. His word is absolutely trustworthy, inerrant and infallible--it cannot be proven false, erroneous or mistaken. We believe that there is but one living, true, personal and sovereign (supreme, independent ruler) God. God is Spirit (John 4:24), and His attributes are those essential qualities which identify and describe His nature. Because God is perfect, He cannot and will not act contrary to His nature

     We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, God's only begotten Son, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. In the flesh, Jesus was one person, with two natures--true God and true man, yet without sin. We believe the person of the Holy Spirit is God, and given by God to convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgment, guide into all truth, comfort, regenerate, sanctify and daily lead those who are in Christ. He also indwells forever, from the moment of regeneration, and desires to empower, fill and minister through the believer We believe that every Christian, as a new creation, will give some evidence of personal conversion.

     We believe that all the redeemed, once saved, are kept eternally secure by God's power and manifest the work of that power in their lives daily by refraining from sin and conforming to Jesus Christ The believer's security is a matter for rejoicing and motivation to maturity in Christ through daily obedience to God's Word, clearly forbidding the abuse of Christian liberty as an occasion to sin. We believe the "Church" is primarily manifest through local churches that are comprised of born-again believers who observe baptism and the Lord's Supper, are governed only by the word of God, and answer ultimately to Jesus Christ.
