We believe the Bible is the written word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit and without error in the original manuscripts. The Bible is the revelation of God's truth and is infallible and authoritative in all matters of faith and practice.
We believe in the Holy Trinity. There is one God, Who exists eternally in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, who through His perfect life and sacrificial death atoned for the sins of all who will trust in Him, alone, for salvation. We believe in the power of the Spirit working through the means of grace.
We believe that all are sinners and totally unable to save themselves from God's displeasure, except by His mercy. We believe that eternal life is received by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. We believe in the absolute sovereignty of God and that He ordains whatever comes to pass; we also believe that man is completely responsible before this holy and sovereign God. We believe that God is gracious and faithful to His people not simply as individuals but as families in successive generations according to His Covenant promises.
We believe in two sacraments: the sacrament of the Lord's Supper and the sacrament of Covenant Baptism (the baptism of believers who have never been baptized in the past and the baptism of the children of believers as covenant children). For an in-depth look at Infant Baptism, listen to Bob's sermon Baby Steps.
We believe in the primacy of grace to motivate and enable all that we are called to do as humans to bring God glory. We believe that grace alone opens our hearts to respond to the gospel for forgiveness of sins and eternal life; we also believe that grace working in us motivates and enables us to live transformed lives.
We believe that Jesus will return, bodily and visibly, to judge all mankind and to receive His people to Himself.
