What We Believe
Authority of Scripture — We believe the Bible to be the Holy Word of God, inspired both plenarily and verbally; that it is inerrant, infallible and authoritative in all matters of faith, practice, science, history and all facts on which it claims comment. We adhere to the Reformation model of Sola Scriptura.
Deity of Jesus Christ — We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ; that He is co-eternal, of one essence, and co-equal to the Father.
The Creation — We believe that God “spoke the worlds into existence” in a literal, six-day creation. We reject all naturalistic, evolution or theistic evolution cosmologies.
Justification — We believe that sinners are justified by “faith alone” (sola fide), which is shorthand for justification by grace alone, through faith alone, in the merits and righteousness of Christ alone. We believe God chose His elect in Christ before the foundation of the world, to the praise and glory of His grace, and that the elect are awakened to His grace by the Holy Spirit through the preaching and hearing of His word.
Spiritual Gifts — We believe that God provided temporary “sign gifts” during the Apostolic age such as tongues, prophesying and healing on command, to confirm both the message and the messenger. These gifts ceased with the completion of the biblical canon between AD 60 and AD 100.
Eschatology — We believe in the imminent personal, pre-millennial, pre-tribulational return of Jesus Christ.
