Statement of Faith


We believe the Bible, consisting of the Old and New Testaments, to be the only inspired, inerrant, infallible, authoritative Word of God written.

Holy Trinity

We believe that there is One God; eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.


We believe in the deity of Christ, His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.


We believe that for the lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.

Holy Spirit

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling power and fullness the Christian is enabled to live a godly life in this present evil world.


We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; that they are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they are lost unto the resurrection of damnation


We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers.
