We believe in the One, Triune, God - God the Father, God the Son, and God the Spirit. A mystery of His nature, revealed as One and Three Persons at the same time.
We pray to the Father, Who is the Head, through the Lord Jesus the Christ, by the help of the Holy Spirit's abiding presence.
We believe in the plenary inspiration of the Holy Scriptures, by which we understand the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments, given by divine inspiration, inerrantly revealing the will of God concerning us in all things necessary to our salvation, so that whatever is not contained therein is not to be enjoined to faith.
We believe in man's fallen nature in two parts - original (or genetic) and personal sin. These natures can only be redeemed by the atoning work of Christ on the cross. This work must be accepted by the individual by the help of God's prevenient grace upon hearing the gospel.
We believe, upon hearing the gospel preached, a person must turn from their sin (repent), receiving a heart of mercy and hope, which in turn God, graciously gives Justification, Regeneration, and Adoption into His kingdom.
We believe one graciously gifted as above then seeks holiness of heart, unto maturity by a second work of grace so as to be free from the bondage of sin so as to love God in full and receive as much and more in return.
We believe, after the resurrection of Jesus the Christ, He ascended to the right hand of the Father as our Intercessor, leaving behind the Apostles for the day of Pentecost where the church was born to finish His work until His return.
Part of this vast work includes the Sacrament of Baptism and Communion. Both are a channel of unique grace, and can only be administered by proper clergy unto all those who hope in Jesus and have love for the Saints.
We believe in the second coming of Jesus Christ, upon which His clear, manifestation shall signal the judgment of humanity unto their final destiny. All those who have died or are presently living shall be judged according to the Lord's discernment.
Of which they who have remained faithful and wise, shall receive paradise, bliss, and an everlasting relationship with their Lord to praise Him for all eternity.
Of those who were unfaithful, they shall be left to outer darkness where their only activity shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth for all eternity
