Home > What We Believe
  • We believe in one eternally existent, infinite God; that He only is God, holy in nature, attributes, and purpose. That He is triune in essential being, revealed as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

  • We believe in Jesus Christ, the Second Person of the Triune Godhead; that He was eternally one with the Father; that He became incarnate by the Holy Spirit and was born of the Virgin Mary, so that two whole and perfect natures, that is to say the Godhead and manhood, are thus united in one Person very God and very man, the God-man.

  • We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Third Person of the Triune Godhead, that He is ever present and efficiently active in and with the Church of Christ, convicting the world of sin, regenerating those who repent and believe, sanctifying believers, and guiding into all truth as it is in Jesus.

  • We believe in the plenary inspiration of the Holy Scriptures, by which we understand the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments were given by divine inspiration and reveal the will of God concerning us in all things necessary to our salvation.

  • We believe that sin came into the world through the disobedience of our first parents, and death by sin. We believe that sin is of two kinds: original sin or depravity, and actual or personal sin.

  • We believe that Jesus Christ, by His sufferings, by the shedding of His own blood, and by His death on the Cross, made a full atonement for all human sin, and that this Atonement is the only ground of salvation, and that it is sufficient for every individual of Adam’s race.

  • We believe that the human race’s creation in God-likeness included the ability to choose between right and wrong, and that thus human beings were made morally responsible. Through the fall of Adam they became depraved so that they cannot now turn and prepare themselves by their own natural strength and works. We also believe that the grace of God through Jesus Christ is freely bestowed upon all people, enabling all who will to turn from sin to righteousness. We can then follow good works pleasing and acceptable in His sight.

  • We believe that repentance, which is a sincere and thorough change of the mind in regard to sin, is demanded of all who have by act or purpose become sinners against God. The Spirit of God gives to all who will repent the gracious help of penitence of heart and hope of mercy.
