Our Core Values
There is only one true and living God. He is the Creator, Ruler, and Sustainer of the entire universe, and deserves total devotion and obedience from all that He has created. He has sovereignly ordained all things that come to pass and He alone possesses all wisdom, knowledge, and power. The eternal triune God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being.
About Jesus Christ
Salvation refers to the entire process by which God redeems sinners who turn to Him in faith. Salvation is a free gift of God to all those who turn to Christ in faith alone, not gained through any amount of penance, merit, or good works. Salvation as a whole entails regeneration (change of heart resulting from repentance of sin and new birth), justification (right legals standing before God), sanctification (growth in holiness into the image of Christ), and glorification (the final state of perfection realized after a believer dies and goes to Christ).
About the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God, fully divine. He inspired the writers of Scripture, so that they wrote the inerrant words of God. He is the one who illuminates the Word of God to the people of God, and empowers the people of God to accomplish the purposes God has set for them. The Holy Spirit desires to exalt Christ in all that He does, and He produces unity within His body (the Church). The Spirit pours out gifts upon the people of God for the purpose of building up the body and making Christ known among the nations. The Holy Spirit also works in the lives of believers to convict us of sin, empower us to obey Christ, and strengthen us to carry on until we finish the work God has for us.
About The Bible
The Bible is the inerrant, infallible words of God to all men. The whole of divine revelation to mankind is revealed within its 66 books, and it is totally sufficient on all matters pertaining to life and godliness. All Scripture is totally true and trustworthy. It reveals the principles by which God judges us, and therefore is the true center of Christian union and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and religious opinions should be tried.
