What We Believe

That the Holy Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments were written by holy men inspired by the Holy Spirit (Ghost) and are God’s revealed Word to man. They are the sufficient, infallible rule and guide to salvation and all Christian worship and service (II Peter 1:20-21; II Timothy 3:15-17; I Thessalonians 2:13). The Bible is the inspired Word of God, equally in all parts and in the whole is totally inerrant in the original manuscripts. It is the supreme revelation from God and of God, superior to conscience and reason; it is therefore our infallible rule in all manners. The totality of the Scriptures center on the Lord Jesus Christ. Hence, no portion is properly read or understood until it leads to Him.
 
That Scripture teaches that there is one and only one true and living God, who is self-existent, and the eternal “I AM,” the creator of heaven and earth and the redeemer of mankind. That He has chosen to reveal Himself as Father, Son, and Holy Ghost (Spirit), the same in essence, though distinct in personality (Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 43:10-l1; Luke 3:22). These three Persons are one God, having the same nature, attributes, and perfection and are worthy of the same homage and obedience (Mark 12:29; John 1:14; Acts 5:3,4; II Corinthians 13:14; Revelation 1:4-6). The mode of His existence, however, is a subject far above the understanding of man. He is the fountain of all perfection and happiness. He is glorified by the whole of creation and is worthy to be loved and served by all. He, therefore, is the only proper object of worship (Jeremiah 10:10; Exodus 3:14; Psalms 90:2; Matthew 28:12-19, 20; Job l1:7; Psalms 19:1, 2; 145:10; 150:6; Exodus 34:14).
