About God... We believe that there is One God who reveals Himself in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. God is eternal. He has always existed and always will.
About the Bible... We believe that the Bible is the Holy Word of God. It is inspired in every detail. The Bible is complete and without error. Since the Bible is the infallible Word of God, it is the sole authority in all matters of life. The Bible is the basis for truth. The Bible is sufficient to change lives; therefore, we prioritize the teaching and preaching of God’s Word.

He was born of the virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, suffered death as payment of the penalty of the sins of humanity, was literally, physically raised from the dead on the third day, visibly ascended into heaven, and is presently seated at the right hand of the Father making intercession for man.
About Salvation... We believe that salvation is effected only through the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ. Salvation is a free gift of God, appropriated by faithful repentance on the part of the person. Salvation is not awarded based on the merits of any man but is only available through Jesus Christ by faith. We believe that all people are created to exist eternally. Those who have received salvation will exist eternally in the presence of God, while those who reject the gift of salvation will exist eternally- separated from God.
