What we Believe
The Bible is the inspired Word of God and the revealed will of God.
II Timothy 3:15-17; 1 Peter 1:23-25
There is one true Godhead comprised of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. All are co-equal and co-eternal. Jesus Christ is God manifest in human flesh, born of the Virgin Mary through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Isaiah 7:14; Isaiah 9:6; Matthew 1:18; Matthew 28:19; John 1:1, 14; 1 John 5:7
Man was created in God’s image. By voluntary transgression, he fell. His only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ.
Genesis 1:26-31; Genesis 3:17; Romans 5:12-21
