Core Beliefs

  • The Scriptures are true, authoritative and sufficient (Psalm 19:7-11; 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21).
  • There is one God, who eternally exists as three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.  The Father is God, but is not the Son nor is He the Spirit.  The Son is God, but is not the Father nor is He the Spirit.  The Spirit is God, but is not the Father nor is He the Son (Gen. 1:1-2, 1:26; Matthew 3:13-17; John 1) 
  • Because of Adam’s sin, we are,  along with all humanity (excluding Christ), by birth and action sinners, and the just punishment for sin is death (both physical and spiritual) leading to eternal separation from God.  (Genesis 6:5; Psalm 51:5; Jeremiah 17:9; Romans 3:23; 5:8, 12-14; 6:23, 12-21; 7:18; Ephesians 2:1-3).
  • Jesus is the eternal Son of God, who was born of a virgin, and taking on flesh, he became a man. Jesus is both fully God and fully human (Matthew 3:13-17;John 1, 8:58, 14:6, Colossians 1:15-20).
  • Jesus lived a sinless death, died as a substitute for sinners, paying the debt for sin, and on the third day he physically rose from the dead (Matthew 28:1-10; Mark 16:1-11; Luke 24; John 3:16, 20:1-29; Romans 3:25, 10:9; 1 Cor. 15:4; 2 Cor. 5:21; Ephesians 2:1-10; Colossians 2:6-15; Hebrews 9-10; 1 Peter 3:18; 1 John 2:2)
  • Jesus physically ascended into heaven and will physically return one day (Matthew 24:29-31; Mark 13:35-37, Acts 1:6-11; 2 Tim 4:8)
  • There will be a future physical resurrection of the dead. Those who trust in Jesus Christ for salvation will be raised to eternal reward. Those who do not trust in Jesus Christ will be raised to eternal punishment (Matthew 25:31-46; John 5:28-29; Acts 24:15)
  • There is no salvation apart from Jesus.  Only by trusting Jesus Christ for salvation may a person be reconciled to God, experiencing true life and joy (Ps. 37:4; John 1o:9, 14:6; Acts 4:12; 1 Tim 2:5; 1 John 5:12)
