1. WE BELIEVE the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

  2. WE BELIEVE in the one true God eternally existing in three distinct persons (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) each of whom is fully and equally God: possesses all the divine nature and attributes, and is totally worthy of our worship and service. (1 Corinthians 12:4-6; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Matthew 28:18-20; Colossians 2:9; Romans 1:20)

  3. WE BELIEVE in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ. In His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His vicarious and atoning sacrifice through His shed Blood, in His bodily resurrection in His ascension, and in His personal return in power and glory upon the earth. (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:25; 1 Timothy 3:16)

  4. WE BELIEVE that the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross provides the sole basis for forgiveness of sins and salvation, which is the free gift of God’s grace. Salvation brings into effect the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit and cannot be secured by man’s works or personal merit. Salvation is only appropriated by a person placing his/her faith in the finished work of Christ. (Colossians. 1:2; Ephesians 1:7; Ephesians 2:8; Acts 20:28; Hebrews. 9:14; Hebrews. 9:22)

  5. WE BELIEVE that water baptism is not a saving ordinance but is essential in obedience to the Gospel, and should be administered by immersion. (Acts 1:5)

  6. WE BELIEVE the Gospel includes holiness of heart and life, healing of the body, and a definite personal experience with the Holy Spirit. Thereby the gifts of the Spirit become active in the life of the believer. This work of the Holy Spirit is for men, women, and children. (1Thessalonians 3:13; Isaiah 11:6, 2Timothy 3:15, Matt 18:1-4; John 11:25-26)

  7. WE BELIEVE in the spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus. (Psalm 133:1; Ephesians 4:5; Ephesians 4:13)

  8. WE BELIEVE in the bodily resurrection of believers at the end time and the judgment of all mankind, with the just unto eternal life and the unjust into eternal damnation. (Daniel 12:2; 1 Corinthians 15:15-16, 1 Thessalonians 4:16; Mark 16:16)

  9. WE BELIEVE in the full function of the five-fold ministry, which was given to perfect and equip the saints so they can enter into the work of their ministry, thereby edifying the whole Body of Christ. (Ephesians 4:11-12; Ephesians 2:19-22)

  10. WE BELIEVE that both men and women may be called to serve in church ministry without restriction due to gender. (Gal 3:26-28; Rom 16:1-15; Acts 2:7-18)

  11. WE BELIEVE in the sovereign autonomous government of the local Church (Matt 18:17; Acts 15:22; 1 Corinthians 16:12)

  12. WE BELIEVE that marriage is a holy sacrament ordained by God as the union of one man and one woman in covenant relationship (Genesis 2:23-24; Genesis 1:27-28)
