What We Believe

About the Bible

We teach that the Bible is the Word of God supernaturally inspired, so that it is inerrant in the original manuscripts and preserved by God in its verbal, plenary inspiration, so that it is a divinely authoritative standard for every age and every life.

About the Trinity
About Creation
About Jesus Christ
About the Holy Spirit
About the Atonement
About Salvation

We teach that such salvation with its forgiveness of sins, its impartation of a new nature and its hope of eternal life, is entirely apart from good works, baptism, church membership – or man’s effort – and is of pure grace.

About Eternal Security
About the Fate of the Believer
About Sanctification
