What We Believe
The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is God’s revelation of Himself to man. It is a perfect treasure of divine instruction. It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter. Therefore, all Scripture is totally true and trustworthy.
It reveals the principles by which God judges us, and therefore is, and will remain to the end of the world, the true center of Christian union, and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and religious opinions should be tried.
- The Bible is God’s perfect guidebook for living.
- Jesus is God showing Himself to us.
- Faith is the only way to grow in our relationship with God.
- The church is to serve people like Jesus served people.
- Death is a beginning, not the end.
- Through His Holy Spirit, God lives in and through us now.
- God has allowed evil to provide us with a choice, and God promises victory over evil to those who choose Him.
- Jesus is coming again!
- Nothing in creation “just happened.” God made it all.
- Heaven and hell are real places.
- Grace is the only way to have a relationship with God.
