.:: what we believe
 God
Ours is a triune God who is the Creator of all things.
Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; John 5:23; 1 John 2:23
 Man
- Created by God, for God, and not a product of alleged evolution.
- By the sinful act of Man, we are no longer in loving communion with God and we cannot by our own power be right or perfect in His eyes.
Genesis 2:7; 1:27; Chap. 3; Psalm 14:3; Romans 5:12; Isaiah 64:6; Psalm 143:2; 1 Corinthians 2:14
 Jesus
- Born of the Virgin Mary, He is completely and simultaneously God and Man.
- Lived a perfect life without sin, was crucified on a cross to pay the punishment that we deserve for our sins; that He rose bodily from the dead and will return at the end of the world to judge the living and the dead.
- The only way to enter the Kingdom of Heaven.
John 3:16, John 14:6, Romans 6:23
 Bible
- The Word of God, being totally truthful, reliable and free from error.
- The only standard by which we must believe and confess. It was written to let us find freedom and happiness by explaining who God is, how our universe works, and expresses Godís desire for our lives.
2 Peter 1:21; 1 Corinthians 2:13; John 5:39; Luke 11:28
 Law
God has expressed His perfect law through the Ten Commandments, that these are to be obeyed because of our fear and love for Him.
Matthew 5:48; Leviticus 19:2; Deuteronomy 27:26; Romans 3:20
 Sin
Every thought, word, and deed contrary to God’s Law is sinful, that every human being is a sinner by birth; that all evil in the world is a result of man’s sin.
1 John 3:4; John 3:6; Genesis 8:21; Romans 5:12; Psalm 5:4
 Free Will
- God has called us to believe in His saving truth through His perfect will, and that He has given us the faith to believe.
- God has given us the Free will to choose how we will behave within His good and perfect will.
- Through the forgiveness that comes to us through Christ alone we have been given liberty from eternal damnation under the kingdom of God.
I Corinthians 4:16; Galations 5:17, 24; John 8:36; Matthew 4:4; Matthew 7:18; John 6:27, 29; I Corinthians 15:57; I Peter 2:9; I Corinthians 4:1; Romans 7:22-23
 Justification
Jesus’ death and resurrection has conquered all sin and freed us from the stronghold of sin and the Devil; it is because of Christ’s sacrifice for our sake that we are declared righteous by God.
John 5:20, 23; 10:30; 14:9; Matthew 1:18-25; 1 Peter 2:22; Galatians 4:4, 5; 3:13; 1 Peter 2:24; 1 John 2:1, 2; Romans 4:25; John 14:19; Acts 1:11; 10:42; 2 Corinthians 5:19; Romans 5:18,19; Acts 10:43; Romans 3:22-24,28; Ephesians 2:8
 Salvation
The only way that we may be saved is by what is given to us in Scripture alone, by God’s grace alone, through faith alone, in Jesus Christ alone as our savior, and not by our obedience to His law or by the good deeds that we do.
Ephesians 2:8, Romans 3:22-24; 28
 Conversion
Conversion is not a mere changing of habits, but a change of heart. Conversion is brought about by the power of God working through the Word; and takes place by believing that Jesus Christ is our personal Savior and Lord.
Joel 2:13; Ezekiel 11:19; Jeremiah 31:18; John 1:12, 13; Romans 10:17; 1 John 5:1
 Baptism
A divinely established washing of renewal; it is intended for old and young without exception and may be administered by sprinkling, pouring, or immersing with water; and that by it all who receive this sacrament are given the grace of God, forgiveness of sins, and the promise of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
Matthew 28:19; Titus 3:5; Mark 10:14; Acts 16:15; Hebrews 10:22; Acts 22:16; 2:38; Mark 16:16
Christ Alone - Grace Alone - Faith Alone - Scripture Alone
