Doctrinal Statement:

We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ as the eternal Son of God, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His substitutionary work on the cross, in His bodily resurrection from the dead, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. We believe that man’s only hope of redemption is through faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ, accomplished through the regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, those who are saved unto the resurrection of life and those who are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord, Jesus Christ.
