The Bible:

We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, infallible, and inerrant in the original manuscripts, comprised of the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments, and is the final rule and authority on all matters of faith and doctrine.

God:

We believe in the Triune God of the Bible, eternally existing as three co-equal, co-eternal persons (the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit), creator and sustainer of all things, omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent, and omnibenevolent, the sovereign and holy judge over all things.

Humanity:

We believe that humanity is the crown jewel of God's creation, created male and female as compliments to one another, God's image-bearers given dominion over all the earth, made to have a relationship with Him, but who is now fallen in sin through Adam, born with a rebellious and wicked heart whose thoughts and inclinations evil and who hates God, suppressing the truth in unrighteousness, criminals within an eternally perfect law, rightly deserving of an eternal punishment.  

Christ:

We believe in Christ as the eternally begotten Son of God, the second member of the Godhead, co-equal and co-eternal with the Father, who condescended to earth to be born of the virgin, adding to Himself a human nature, becoming fully God and fully Man, living a human life that was without sin, and dying on the cross as the sacrifice of atonement for the sins of humanity, and taking up His life on the third day declaring His sacrifice accepted by God, and who reigns eternally at the right hand of the Father, and our mediator with Him, testifying before the Lord on our behalf. 

Salvation:

We believe in the atoning work of Christ on the Cross, where the one who knew no sin became sin for us, serving as the propitiatory sacrifice on behalf of all humanity, a new Adam, bearing the full penalty of sin upon Himself so that through repentance and faith in Him we may be justified, declared righteous in the eyes of God, with our sin imputed to Christ and His righteousness imputed to us, and that in being brought into union with Him in His death and resurrection, we too may die and be brought to life as a new creation in Him, and be made a co-inheritor with Christ. 

The Holy Spirit:

We believe in the distinct personhood of the Holy Spirit as He co-equally and co-eternally exists alongside the Father and the Son as the third member of the Godhead, that He indwells the believer as the seal of the promise of salvation, applying the work of Christ to their life, functioning as counselor, comforter, keeper, bringer of conviction, illuminating truth and co-operating in sanctification, the spirit of our adoption who groans alongside us and makes our prayers fit to be heard by God.

The Church:

We believe that the church as the manifestation of God's kingdom here on earth, the bride of Christ, being prepared for the day of the great wedding feast when He returns, called out by God's own sovereign election from among every tribe, and tongue, and nation, a body made up of many diverse parts working in harmony, reflecting the unity and diversity present within the Trinity itself, who tarries on this earth in order to fulfill the commission left by Christ prior to His ascension to proclaim the Gospel and make disciples, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son, and Spirit, that it is an invisible entity made up of people sharing in their communion with Christ from around the globe, but which manifests visibly in the local gathering of congregations sharing life and worship together. 

The End:

We believe in the coming day when Christ returns and humanity both alive and dead are resurrected bodily, the wicked are cast into eternal judgement, the saints receive their glorification and inheritance, ruling over all creation alongside Christ for eternity, and all creation passes away and is recreated into the sinless reclamation of its original design.
