1.The Bible is the inspired Word of God and is infallible, inerrant, and authoritative in all matters of which it speaks (II Tim.3:16-17; II Peter 1:19-21)
2.There is one God who is personal, infinite, perfect, and eternal, existing as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, who are equal in divine perfection (Ex.20:2-3; Deut.6:4; Rev.4:11; Matt.28:19).
3.The Holy Spirit gifts Christians as He desires for service in the body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:11). While there were supernatural giftings (tongues, healing, prophetic utterances) in the early church, we would teach they are not normative for today (Hebrews 2:3-4).
4.God directly created the universe from no pre-existing substance in six literal days (Gen.1:1, 26-27; 2:7; Col.1:16-17).
5.God wonderfully foreordained and immutably created each person as either male or female in conformity with their biological sex. These two distinct yet complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God (Genesis 1:26–27).
6.God established marriage as a lifelong union between one biological male and one biological female. Biblical marriage is the only legitimate and acceptable context for sexual intimacy. (Gen 2:20-24; Matt 19:4-6; Romans 7:2; 1 Thess 4:1-8; Hebrews 13:4)
7.Man was made in God’s own image but now is through Adam’s fall a sinner both by nature and choice (Gen.3:1-6, 24; Rom.3:10-19; 5:12, 19).
8.Jesus Christ was conceived of the Holy Spirit, was born of a virgin and is true God and true man (Is.7:14; Matt.1:18-25; I John 5:20).
9.Salvation is by grace through faith only in Jesus Christ, through his substitutionary atoning sacrifice apart from any human merit or works (Eph. 2:8-9; Heb.2:14-17).
10.Jesus Christ rose bodily from the grave, ascended into Heaven, and intercedes on our behalf as our High Priest (I Cor.15:3-4; I Tim. 2:5; Rev. 3:21).
11.Every believer is eternally secure, being “kept by the power of God” (John 10:28; I Pet. 2:5; Rom. 8:35-39; Eph. 1:13).
12.Baptism and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances of the church; they have no merit for salvation but are important symbols of the gospel (John 3:23; Rom. 6:3-5; Matt. 3:16; I Cor. 11:23-28).
13.The Bible calls for a separation from sin and a pursuit of holiness and righteousness as they seek to love God and their neighbor (II Cor. 6:14; 7:1; I Thess. 1:9-10; I Tim. 6:3-5).
14.We believe in the second coming of Christ, which will be visible and personal (I Thess. 4:16-17; Rev. 19:11-21).
15.All persons will experience resurrection; unbelievers to eternal punishment in hell and believers to a state of eternal joy with Christ (1 Thess. 4:13; Rev. 20:11-15).
