What We Believe

We believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testament to be the verbally and plenary inspired Word of God. The Scriptures are inerrant, infallible, and God breathed, and therefore are the final authority for faith and life. The sixty six books of the Old and New Testament are the complete and divine revelation of God to Man. The Scriptures shall be interpreted according to their normal grammatical-historical meaning. The King James Version of the Bible shall be the official and only translation used by the church. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21).
God is a person existing as a Trinity in unity – The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit –three persons and yet but one God. (Deut. 6:4, Matt. 28:19, I Cor. 8:6)
Man was created in the same image of God, but fell through sin, bringing not only physical death but also spiritual death – separation from God. Now all mankind has inherited a sinful nature, is bent toward sinning and has become sinful in thought, word and deed.
(Gen. 1:26-27, 2:16, 3:6-19, Rom. 3:10-23, 6:23)
Man is lost and must be born again to enter the kingdom of God. Salvation is by grace alone through personal faith in the finished work of Christ on the cross.
(John 1:12, 3:3-7, Eph. 2:8-9)
