What We Believe

The Bible guides us to true wisdom through faith in Christ Jesus

And how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.  All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work. ~ 2 Timothy 3:15-17

We believe that the 1689 Baptist Confession is an accurate and faithful summary of the teaching of the 66 books of Holy Scripture, and have therefore adopted this confession as the teaching doctrinal statement with minor exceptions.

God is Triune

We believe in one God, eternally existing in three equally divine Persons: The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit.

God has Revealed Himeself

In the natural world, in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and in the verbally inspired, inerrant, and authoritative 66 books of the Bible, God has clearly revealed Himself to humanity.

Humanity

God created human beings, male and female, in His own image. Men and women, equally made in the image of God, enjoy equal access to God by faith in Jesus, and bear God’s image in unique and distinct ways. Men and women have received different, complementary roles from God that are to be lived out according to His Word, the Bible.

The Fall

Adam fell into sin through the devil’s temptation, bringing alienation from God and total corruption to every aspect of every human being (our bodies, minds, wills, emotions, and souls) since this initial sin.

The Gospel

The good news is biblical (Jesus’ death and resurrection are according to the Scriptures), theological and salvific (Jesus died for our sins, to reconcile us to God), historical (if the saving events did not actually happen, our faith is worthless), apostolic (the message was entrusted to and transmitted by the apostles, who were witnesses of these saving events), and intensely personal.

God’s Redemption of His People

We believe that, moved by love and in obedience to his Father, the eternal Son, Jesus, became human: the Word became flesh, truly God and truly human, one Person in two natures, miraculously conceived by the Holy Spirit and born to the virgin Mary.

He perfectly obeyed His heavenly Father, lived a sinless life, performed miraculous signs, was crucified under Pontius Pilate, arose bodily from the dead, and ascended into heaven.

Salvation of Sinner

By His sacrifice, Jesus bore in our place the punishment due to us for our sins, making a proper, real, and full satisfaction to God’s justice for us. By His perfect obedience He satisfied the just demands of God for us, since by faith alone that perfect obedience is credited by grace alone to all who trust in Christ alone for salvation.

The Holy Spirit

He convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and by His powerful and mysterious work regenerates spiritually dead sinners, awakening them to repentance and faith, baptizing them into union with the Lord Jesus, and justifying them before God.

The Restoration of All Things

We believe in the personal, glorious, and bodily return of our Lord Jesus Christ with His holy angels, when He will judge, and His kingdom will be consummated.
