"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life:
no man cometh unto the Father, but by me!"
John 14:6


We believe in one God comprised of three equal manifestations, The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God has created man in His own image, and has commanded him to strive for perfect holiness through obedience to His commandments. Because man has fallen in this responsibility and entered into a state of moral corruption, he has subsequently become estranged from his Creator.

Because of a profound love for His creation, God has initiated a plan of redemption which He has accomplished on behalf of His people in the realm of temporal history. The zenith of this redemption is located in the historical incarnation of God in the person of Jesus of Nazareth. We confess Jesus to be the Christ of Old Testament prophecy, being at the same time fully God and fully man. Jesus, through His substitutionary atoning death and bodily resurrection, has provided the meritorious basis of our justification, which, by God's grace, we receive by faith alone.

Proceeding from the Father and the Son, the Holy Spirit dwells in the hearts of believers, effecting their regeneration and operating in their sanctification. The same Holy Spirit has been given to the people of God to empower them for the service of bearing witness to the kingdom of God, and for the discerning of sin. The Holy Spirit brings His people together to form a corporate community of believers. We believe that Christ has established a visible church which is called to live in the power of the Holy Spirit under the regulation of the authority of Holy Scripture, exercising discipline, administering the sacraments, and preaching the Gospel of Christ.

We believe that the Bible, in its entirety, is divine revelation, and we submit to the authority of Holy Scripture, acknowledging it to be inherently inspired by God and carrying the full weight of His authority.
