We believe in the plenary, verbal inspiration of the Old and New Testament Scriptures in the original autographs and that these writings being inerrant are supreme and final in all matters of doctrine and life.

We believe in one God eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe in Jesus Christ's deity and humanity, His conception by the Holy Spirit. His virgin birth. His bodily resurrection and His personal, visible return with power and great glory. We believe that man being created by a direct act of God was a righteous, free, moral being; that he sinned and thereby incurred the penalty of physical and spiritual death not only for himself, but also for the entire human race, with the result that we are all sinful by nature. We believe that Jesus Christ, by His substitutionary death on the cross, made salvation possible for all who will receive Him as their only Savior; that these, who are regenerated by the Holy Spirit, will never perish; and that it is utterly impossible for anyone to be saved except by Jesus Christ.
