What We Believe
We believe the Holy Bible, both the Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired and the “no mistake about it” word of God. The Holy Spirit gave God’s word to more than 40 writers over a period of almost 2,000 years. The Holy Bible contains God’s word in sixty-six “books.” On the basis of God’s word . . .
“(We) believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.
“And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord. Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell. The third day He rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty. From thence He will come to judge the living and the dead.
“(We) believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Christian Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the Resurrection of the Body, and the life everlasting.”
From God’s own word, we believe that “in all things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us,” and we know the Lord “is with us always to the end of time.” [Romans 8:37; Matthew 28:20]
