We believe in one personal, immanent living God – the creator, sustainer, and sovereign ruler of all things and that eternally exists in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, each executing distinct but harmonious roles in creation, providence, redemption, and consummation.
We believe in the one personal, transcendent, immanent, living God-the creator, sustainer, and sovereign ruler of all things. He is self-existent, immutable, and works all things according to the counsel of His will in order to bring Glory to Himself. God’s foreknowledge is exhaustive and not dependent on human decisions and action. He eternally exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. They execute distinct but harmonious roles in creation, providence, redemption, and consummation. They are equal in nature, attributes, and perfection. The holy triune God is worthy of our worship, confidence and obedience.
We believe in God the Father: One in essence with the Son and the Spirit. He is a infinite, personal spirit, perfect in all His attributes. He is creator, sustainer and sovereign ruler of all things through His Son Jesus Christ. We believe that He concerns Himself perfectly in the affairs of humanity. His fatherhood involves both His designation within the Trinity and His relationship with the redeemed. Everything He does is in accordance with His perfect will, though His sovereignty does not eliminate or minimize human responsibility. The father adopts as His own, through Jesus Christ, all those He calls to Himself.
We believe in God the Son: One in essence with the Father and the Spirit. He is the one and only eternal Son of God, the preeminent revelation of God. At the right time He eptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-slave. He was as as conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary as Jesus, the-Christ-fully God and fully man. We believe in His sinless life, His voluntary submission to His Father’s will that culminated in His substitutionary death on the cross, His bodily resurrection. He ascended into Heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father. His death on the cross atoned for our sins and satisfied the righteous demands of the Holy God. He is the mediator between God and Man. He is Prophet, priest, and King; the Head and Savior of His Church; the heir of all things; the judge of all the world; and the exact representation of God the Father. We believe in the personal return of Christ for His Church and in the establishment of His Kingdom on earth.
We believe in God the Holy Spirit: one in essence with the Father and Son. He was sent by God the Father and God the Son. He was sent by God the Father and God the Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgement. The holy Spirit glorifies Jesus Christ and implements Christ’s work of redemption and baptism. He regenerates, baptizes, seals, gifts and indwells all believers at conversion, progressively sanctifying, and securing them in Christ forever. His presence is evident by the fruit of the Spirit and the building up of the believers into the body of Christ, the church.
We believe that humanity, male and female, is sacred in God’s eyes and was uniquely created by Him, in His image and for His glory, to exercise dominion over the earth and to enjoy a relationship with Him forever. Every human being is directly responsible to God in matters of faith and life. After sin entered the world, humans still possess the image of God, though tainted by sin. God’s will for humanity is that they love the Lord their God with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength, and love their neighbors as themselves.
In God’s design for humanity, life begins at fertilization. He established the institution of family through the union of one man and one woman in a marriage covenant for life. His design for the continuance of humanity is through the procreation and discipleship of children within the marriage union. Marriage is to be an example of the relationship between Jesus Christ and His Church.
