The Bible – is the basis for all aspects of Christian life. We believe that the Bible is God’s very Word – spoken by Him over thousands of years through the scribes and prophets God chose and guided to write by His Spirit. From God’s Word, we derive several foundational beliefs to which all Christians must adhere:

  • Inerrancy of God’s Word
  • The Holy Trinity
  • The Creation of the Universe
  • The Fall of Man
  • The Virgin Birth
  • The Deity of Jesus
  • The Present Works of God’s Spirit in the World
  • Angels
  • Jesus’ Ordinances for the Church
