KNOWLEDGE. And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God. ~Colossians 1:10
HONOR. …that all may honor the Son just as they honor the Father. ~John 5:23
TRUTH. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. ~John 8:32
WISDOM. Blessed is the man who finds wisdom. ~Proverbs 3:13
EXCELLENCE. Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. ~Philippians 4:8
INTEGRITY. I know, my God, that you test the heart and are pleased with integrity. ~1 Chronicles 29:17
We believe in the Scripture of the Old and New Testaments as verbally inspired by God, and inerrant in the original writings, and that they are of Supreme and final authority in faith and life.
We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and is true God and true man.
We believe that man was created in the image of God, that he sinned, and thereby incurred, not only physical death, but also that spiritual death which is separation from God; and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature, and in the case of those who reach moral responsibility, become sinners in thought, word and deed.
We believe the Lord Jesus died for our sins, according to the Scriptures, as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice; and that all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood.
We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into heaven, and His present life there for us as High Priest and Advocate.
We believe that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will personally return and set up his kingdom wherein He will rule and reign in righteousness.
We believe that all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit, and thereby become children of God.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the blessedness of the saved, and the retribution of the lost.
We therefore, believe in The Deity, Virgin Birth, Vicarious Death, Physical Resurrection, Ascension, and personal return in Glory of the Lord Jesus. The Personality, Deity and Work of the Holy Spirit. The Personality of Satan. The Great Scriptural Doctrines of Sin, Salvation by Grace, Redemption, Regeneration, Justification by Faith, Prayer, Physical Resurrection, the Reward of Believers and Retribution of Unbelievers.
