We believe in the deity of Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.

We believe that for the eternal salvation of lost and sinful humankind, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by Whose indwelling power and fullness Christians are enabled to live a godly life in this present evil/fallen world.

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life eternal and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in the Lord Jesus Christ.
