We believe that the Bible was inspired and inerrant in the original manuscripts and is the final authority for faith and life (II Tim. 3:16; II Pet. 3:16).
We believe that God is one, and yet self exists in three coeternal and coequal persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit (Deut. 6:4; Matt. 28:19-20).
We believe that the Scriptures affirm both the full deity and perfect humanity of Jesus Christ united forever in one person, the eternal Son of God (John 10:30; John 8:40). Jesus will return physically and bodily to Earth to fulfill the events of prophecy.
We believe that mankind was created in the image of God (Gen 1:27). But in its fallen state mankind is separated from God and unable to please God (Gen. 3; Rom. 3:23).
We believe that the death of Jesus Christ was substitutionary and vicarious in that sinners could not pay the penalty for their own sin. (Rom. 5:6; John 1:29). This gift is offered to all who have faith in Jesus Christ alone for salvation and his death on their behalf (John 3:16; Eph. 2:8-9).
We believe that the Universal Church is comprised of all believers from all places and times starting from the day of Pentecost until the rapture (I Cor. 12:13). A local church is made of baptized believers (Matt. 28:19; Acts 2:40,41), where the presence of Christ is, it adheres to the authority of the Scripture (II Tim 3:16), meets the purposes of the church (Acts 2:42), practices the ordinances (I Cor. 11; Matt 28:19) and reflects spiritual gifts (I Cor. 12).
We consider ourselves to be evangelical, Biblically-based,
Gospel-centered and historically orthodox. We also commit ourselves to living these characteristics in a manner that speaks the language of the city we love.
These are some of Scripture's teachings that we hold most dear
