Beliefs & Purpose
What We Believe
1. The Bible
The Old and New Testaments are inerrant as inspired by God, and the only authority for faith and practice. (II Tim. 3:16; II Peter 1:20, 21)

(Deut. 6:4; Mark 12:29; Gen. 1:26; Col. 1:15-17; Gen. 1:2; Acts 13:2)
3. The Fall of Man
In the fall of man, his universal depravity, and that of himself he is utterly unable to remedy his lost condition. (Gen. 1:26 & 31, 3:1-7; Rom. 5:12; Psa.14:1-3; Rom. 3:10 & 23)
In salvation by grace through faith in the atoning blood of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ
– who is the only begotten Son of the Father, conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, became man and was sinless, in order that He might redeem mankind and reveal the Father -and that all who receive the Lord Jesus are “born again” of the Holy Spirit and become children of God.
