2. GOD - We believe in one true God who is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God. Genesis 1:1,26,27; 3:22; Deut. 6:4; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2; 11 Corinthians 13:14

3. FATHER - We believe in God the Father, perfect in holiness, infinite in wisdom, measureless in power. We rejoice that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of man, that He hears and answers prayer, and the He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ. Genesis 1:1; 2:7; Exodus 3:14; 15:11ff; Deuteronomy 6:4; 32:6; 1 Chronicles 29:10; Psalm 19:1-3; Isaiah 64:8; Matthew 6:9ff.; 7:11; John 4:24; 5:26; 14:6-13; Acts 1:7; Romans 8:14-15; 1 Corinthians 8:6; Galatians 4:6; Ephesians 4:6; Colossians 1:15; 1 Timothy 1:17; Hebrews 11:6; 12:9; 1 Peter 1:17

4. SON - We believe in Jesus Christ, the eternal and only begotten Son of God, conceived of the Holy Spirit, of virgin birth, sinless in His life, making atonement for the sins of the world by His death and shed blood on Calvary's cross. We believe in His bodily resurrection, His ascension and visible return to the world according to His promise. Matthew 1:22,23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5, 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14,15; 1 Corinthians 15:3,4; Romans 1:3,4; Acts 1:9-11; I Timothy 6:14,15; Titus 2:13

5. HOLY SPIRIT - We believe in the Holy Spirit who came forth from God to convince the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify, instruct and comfort those who believe in Jesus Christ. II Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13, 14:16,17; Acts 1:8; I Corinthians 2:12, 3:16; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 5:1

6. SALVATION - We believe that all men by nature and by choice are sinners, but that God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. We believe, therefore, that those who accept Christ as Lord and Savior will rejoice in God's presence forever, and that those who refuse to accept Christ as Lord and Savior will be forever separated from God. Gen 1:26,27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 59:1,2; Rom 3:22, 23, 5:12; Eph 2:1-3, 12

7. THE CHURCH - We believe in the Church, a living spiritual body of which Christ is the head, and of which all regenerated people are members. We believe that a local church is a company of believers in Jesus Christ, who have been baptized upon credible confession of faith, and who associate for worship, work, and fellowship. We believe that to these local churches we are committed for perpetual observances, the ordinances of baptism and the Lord's Supper, and that God has laid upon these churches the task of proclaiming to a lost world the acceptance of Jesus Christ as Savior, and serving Him as Lord and Master. We believe that human betterment and social improvement are the inevitable by-products of such a gospel. Matthew 16:15-19; 18:15-20; Acts 2:41-42,47; 5:11-14; 6:3-6; 13:1-3; 14:23,27; 15:1-30; 16:5; 20:28; Romans 1:7; 1 Corinthians 1:2; 3:16; 5:4-5; 7:17; 9:13-14; 12; Ephesians 1:22-23; 2:19-22; 3:8-11,21; 5:22-32; Philippians 1:1; Colossians 1:18; 1 Timothy 2:9-14; 3:1-15; 4:14; Hebrews 11:39-40; 1 Peter 5:1-4; Revelation 2:1-29; 3:1-22; 21:2-3
