THE TRIUNE GOD
We believe in one eternally existent, infinite God, Sovereign
Creator and Sustainer of the universe; that He only is
God, holy in nature, attributes, and purpose. The God who is
holy love and light is Triune in essential being, revealed as
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe in Jesus Christ, the Second Person of the Triune
Godhead; that He was eternally one with the Father; that
He became incarnate by the Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ died for our sins, and that He truly arose from the dead and took again His body, together
with all things appertaining to the perfection of man’s nature,
wherewith He ascended into heaven and is there engaged
in intercession for us.
THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Third Person of the
Triune Godhead, that He is ever present and efficiently active
in and with the Church of Christ, convincing the world
of sin, regenerating those who repent and believe, sanctifying
believers, and guiding into all truth as it is in Jesus
We believe in the plenary inspiration of the Holy Scriptures,
by which we understand the 66 books of the Old and
New Testaments, given by divine inspiration, inerrantly revealing
the will of God concerning us in all things necessary
to our salvation, so that whatever is not contained therein is
not to be enjoined as an article of faith.
We believe that Christian baptism, commanded by our
Lord, is a sacrament signifying acceptance of the benefits of
the atonement of Jesus Christ, to be administered to believers
and declarative of their faith in Jesus Christ as their Savior,
and full purpose of obedience in holiness and righteousness.
We believe in the Church, the community that confesses
Jesus Christ as Lord, the covenant people of God made
new in Christ, the Body of Christ called together by the Holy
Spirit through the Word.
God calls the Church to express its life in the unity and
fellowship of the Spirit; in worship through the preaching
of the Word, observance of the sacraments, and ministry in
His name; by obedience to Christ, holy living, and mutual accountability.
