There is room for diversity of ideas within the body of Christ, and we do not expect that every person will believe the same on secondary issues. However, on these essentials of the faith we agree.
We believe that there is only one living and true God, the creator of all things, who eternally exists in three coequal Persons: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ –
We believe that Jesus Christ, the eternal Son, fully God and fully man, is the perfect expression of God and the only way to Him. Jesus was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice to pay for the sins of humanity dying on a cross, rose from the dead, and now sits at God’s right hand.
Holy Spirit –
We believe that the Holy Spirit is coequal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make people aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He provides Christians with power for living, spiritual gifts, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. As Christians, we seek to live under His control daily.
We believe that the Bible, consisting of the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments, was written by men, divinely inspired, and without error in the original writings. The Bible is the final authority on what we believe and how we live.
