What We Believe About God: We believe that God is the creator and ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit). These three are co-equal and are one God. About the Bible: We believe that the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God and that men were guided by the Holy Spirit to write every word of Scripture. Therefore, the Bible is without error and is the basis for all Christian beliefs and behavior. About Mankind We believe that man was created in the image of God to have fellowship with Him, but all are alienated from that relationship through sin. As a result, man is totally incapable of a right relationship with God by his own effort. About Salvation: We believe that God the Father sent his son, the Lord Jesus to die on the cross for our sins and that his shed blood provides the sole basis for our forgiveness. Therefore, salvation can only occur when people place their faith in the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ as the sufficient payment for their sins. Once a person places their faith in Christ, the Holy Spirit lives within them to provide power for living, understanding of spiritual truth and guidance in daily life. About Eternal Security: We believe that because God gives man eternal life through Jesus Christ, the believer is secure in that salvation for eternity.Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian. It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives this security.
