We believe God the Father is Spirit, (John 4:24) meaning He is an incorporeal being and a Person having self-awareness and self-determination. We believe that God is self-existent, He is the uncaused cause (Psalm 90:2-4). God maintains the absolute attributes of holiness (I Pet. 1:16), love (I John 4:8), and goodness (Rom. 2:4). God also maintains the comparative attributes in that He is omnipresent (Psalm 139:7-12), omnipotent (Gen. 18:14), and omniscient (Psalm 147:5).
We believe that Jesus Christ is the infinite God-man begotten of God, conceived of the Holy Spirit (Matt. 1:18), and born of the Virgin Mary (Matt 1:18-25). He is 100% God and 100% man with no division of person or confounding of the two natures (John 1:1, 14). We also believe that three anointed offices belong to Christ: Prophet (Deut. 18:15-19), Priest (Heb. 9:11-14), and King (Acts. 17:7).
We believe the Scriptures clearly proclaim that the Holy Spirit is an equal personage with the Father and the Son (2 Corinthians 13:14; Matthew 28:19).
The Holy Spirit as a person glorifies the person Jesus Christ and is an example for us to see the individual personalities of the God-head and therefore experience the triune presence of God in our lives. (John 16:13-14).
The Holy Spirit is a person with power who is associated throughout Scripture in the works of deity such as the act of creation (Genesis 1:2), the work of begetting Christ (Luke 1:35), and the work of regenerating mankind in salvation (John 3:6). He is associated with Jehovah (Acts 28:25), with God (Matthew 12:31-32), and with the Father and Son (Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:4). He is in the life of every believer(Rom.8:11), and He empowers the teaching and preaching of the Gospel (John 14:26).
We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament are verbally inspired of God and inerrant in the original writings, and that they are of supreme and final authority. Every word is inspired (Matt 5:17-18; Prov. 30:5-6) in addition to all Scripture being fully and equally inspired by God (II Tim. 3:16-17).
We believe that man is created by God in the image of God (Gen. 1:27). The image of God in man is seen in man’s rational, moral and spiritual aspects in addition to man’s immortality. Man possesses both a physical (I Cor. 15:44-52) and immaterial nature (Heb. 4:12). Man, in Adam, chose by his own free will to disobey God and broke God’s Law through disobedience. Therefore Adam’s sin separates all mankind from God and incurs physical and spiritual death to all mankind (Romans 5:12; 6:23).
We believe that all people who believe and receive by faith alone (Eph. 2:5, 8-9) the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit (John 3:7) having their sins forgiven (I John 1:9-10) and become children of God (I John 3:1-2) and heirs of eternal life (Rom 8:14-17). We firmly believe this relationship between God and man is eternally secure (Eph. 4:30; II Tim. 2:13). We believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross of Calvary as a substitute for mankind (Isa. 53:10) paying the demands of the Law (Col. 2:14) to provide salvation for all people (II Pet. 2:1; Heb. 2:10).
We believe in the Church, the Body of Christ, whose mission it is to preach the Gospel to all the world (Mk 16:15)with its endeavors being supported by the freewill gifts and offerings of the people (Mal 3:10-12 ; I Cor. 16:2). We believe that the ordinances of the Church, given by our Lord, are baptism (by immersion following conversion) (Matt. 29:19-20; Acts 2:41) and the Lord’s Table (I Cor. 11:25-26) (communion).
